... you meet a guy a band camp and come to find out he's got a very big crush on you. And he has a girlfriend. Whom he loves very much. Good on him. Because you never feel the same way romantically towards him. He's just a bro.
Dang human impulses. Why are you so weird? XD
Had my very first college band camp this week and competed in the Georgia Dome and watched DCI LIVE! IT WAS AWESOME!!!
So, the dude I was talking about is in the Corps of Cadets and possibly be in my company as my sergeant during FROG Week and plays in the low brass; a sophomore. At first we talked about anime and the like, then had a Poke`mon battle (I won, to my surprise. O__O), and talked a lot in the days that followed at college. They were good conversations and debates, nothing out of turn. At this point, he is very aware of my relationship with Charlie, and I know of his relationship with his girlfriend.
DCI happens and this young man not only showed me around the Dome, but also took me out to dinner a few blocks over(our associate band director approved). We ate at Taco Mac and had a lot of different things to say, him more-so than me. He told me he had strong feelings towards me and wished he could ask me out. I'm not used to this kind of situation whatsoever, but it was pretty kind of him to say that.
Now before you react, no, he's not a cheater or a "womanizer". It's absolutely normal to have more than one crush, but what matters is the actions that follow. We talked about our relationships and how much we love our other like sane folks and we agreed that we would only be friends.
The bus ride back to college was interesting. Neither one of us slept on the charter bus and stayed up talking about things I will not mention in this journal. Everything was so... so very serious and tragic. How we managed without either of us getting all emotional and crap is beyond me.
Today, he stayed with me until my parents picked me up. We watched a lot of video game reviews and finished season 3 of Sherlock, that kind of stuff. He's a great guy, but I simply don't feel anything romantic towards him like he does towards me.
