Alright fellow ATS'ers that don't mind hearing a wacky, wild tale from a relative youngster.
Onto the story...
So for a while now, I've been showing interest in a particular girl that I've been friends with for a couple years. We haven't met in person,
partially due to distance and trying to meet around both of our schedules. She's not really a "conspiracy"-type person, was raised with a
slightly-more religious family than I was, and for the most part, is an all-around caring individual. Well, she indicated more and more that she wants
to meet in public (finally), and it sounds like things are starting to pick up as of writing this.
Yes, there's a "but".
Just before the start of the new year, I met someone while getting out on an adventure. This is where the plot thickens; it turns out that this chance
encounter brought me to someone that I can only describe as "my kind". Normally, with every person I meet, I get warning sighs a mile away. By all
logical standards, I should have gotten some with her (she has a rougher background than most girls). She was amazing, in that she loves nature as
much as I do, wants to do the same activities that I do, and, out of all the people I could have met, believes in metaphysics, conspiracies, and
anything in-between. 30 minutes became 3 hours that day.
This is where it gets interesting: When we first met, she was in an "it's complicated" relationship status; she liked someone, almost to the point
where she broke down in front of me because she couldn't muster the courage to talk to him about it (at this point, I saw her as a friend, so I told
her to go for it, and tell me how it went later). New Year's came around, and it was almost as if the Universe was trying to nudge me in her
direction. Found out after New Years the person she liked did something extremely stupid, and she didn't see him in the same light.
It's just been really, confusing for me these last couple weeks; it's almost like a Higher Power is steering me in favor of this other person that I
met, and not in favor of my particular crush. It's like in Bruce Almighty
, when he asks for a literal sign and gets a truck full of them
passing him; similar events have been happening ever since I met her.
The only difference is that right now, the relationship I have with this girl is platonic; it's not like my crush at all. And I seem to be content
Thoughts, advice, anything? And yeah, I know I'm young, and that I've got plenty of time. What do I do when my heart and brain conflict with one
