Hi all,

I just wanted to update you all that my Cancer MAle has finally asked me out. It wasn;t super direct, but it was an ask-out so I'm going to call it official. We were talking about bowling and how it can be campy and fun. He said "Yeah, we should go bowling sometime" and then we had a dialog about cool kitschy bowling alleys and after an hour or so of conversation about other things, we ended the conversation and he said he is going to look around and see what he can find with regard to bowling alleys. So, it's a date. Yea! Thanks so much to all of you who have offered direction,support and kind words.

XO,

Thanks all,

I am really excited! I had a moment of "oh my goodness, is this really a date?" because it wasn't a formal "do you want to go out with me on a date", but then I just keep reminding myself that he's a Cancer and they go about things differently.

Hi -- I've a long time lurker but just HAD to register and post when I read this.

I've been wondering whether a certain boy Crab was in to me or not - and I could kick myself! He's been saying EXACTLY the same thing as Tinasparkle's Crab: "We should xxx sometime" - and I, moron, have just been saying "Yes, we should" as I dodn't think he really meant anything.

Boy am I waiting for the next time he says something ...

Tina, how did the bowling date go?

DigitalChi,

I though rather than retype this, I would add my post about my "date" at the bottom. Things went really well and this morning he brought me breakfast(he lives next door) and then we ran errands together and then had coffe together for about an hour. Things are just great and I am looking forward them getting even better. As for your Cancer fellow, it sounds like he has an interest. What I try to do with my fella is be as enthusiastic as possible and then engage him in dialog about it so we can set a plan in motion. I think it reassures him that I want to spend time with him. Maybe you should ask him specifically when he would like to get together or suggest something that the two of you might enjoy. Good luck and best wishes. My post about the date is below. There is also a funny tale about a pink bowling ball incident under InLoveWithLife's "should I ask him out".

Tinasparkle

I was a little uncertain if the Cancer fellow I am fancying had really asked me out, but after this afternoon, I am certain. He was really sweet and dear.I won't bore you with all the details but,he picked up that tab which should be a good sign since most men don't do that anymore unless it's a date, at least in this country. He opened all the doors and was very attentive. We sat right next to each other and at one point there was a bit of leaning on his part. For those who have seen "While you were sleeping" leaning will make much more sense. We laughed a lot, and had a great time and he kept talking about next time this and next time that. Then we told embarrasing stories about our selves and he said my sisters will have lots of stories to tell you about me. I guess I must be more than the neighbor he "hangs-out" with if his sisters are going to tell me tales about him when they visit. There wasn't any hand holding or arm around and he didn't kiss me, but I feel like things are progressing. He had hurt his back and so I rubbed it for him a bit. He seemed to like it and when I was finished I gave him a pat on the back and he didn't seem to realize I was done. I guess he didn;t want me to stop. All in all it was wonderful and I felt really good about it. We
will probably spend a little time together tomorrow and early next week and then he is going out of town for a few days on Wed. but I look forward to letting this New Moon in Libra move things along between us this weekend. Thanks to all of you for your guidance.

XO,

I just read your "couple" post -- that's great!

Thanks for the thumbs up -- I am just paranoid about being pushy (he's very busy and very organised about it!), as one sort of expects a more standard "ask-out". The result is, of course, that I have not exactly been enthusiastic or reassuring that I want to hang out with him! Will correct this in future ....
