I went to Toronto, Canada for Christmas to visit my family there. There is this girl who lives there and she's a friend of my cousin. I've become
close to her over the past 2 years that I've known her. But this visit was better. MUCH better.
We actually starting acting like a couple. She told me that I was like the kind of boyfriend she always wanted. She then asked me if I wanted to start
IN MY MIND...
I was like "OH YEAH! FINALLY!" But then, reality hit me like a big hammer in my face...
I realized this would be an international thing. If intercity relationships don't work well, how could an international one go?! I looked at her and
said "I'd love to. But I don't think it would work out. I mean, I live in New York and you live in Toronto. Totally different countries. I'm
sorry. I like you A LOT. That's the only problem."
She looked at me and smiled. She nodded her head and said "I agree. It wouldn't work out and would be stressful on us both."
I agreed with
her. She then asked if at least for the rest of time I was there, if we could try being like a couple just to see if anything was actually there. So I
and that is what we did for the remainder of my time in Canada.
It went well. We realized we had A LOT in common and that if we were together, we would have a successful relationship. We agreed to end this when I
left, and we did.
So here I am, back at home and feeling pretty good about myself, knowing that I can actually be involved in a successful relationship with someone.
This whole experience has lifted my spirits and has actually given me some confidence.
The only thing is... I gotta see if I can get with a girl like this where I live.
ANOTHER THING... my friend Tony told me that I shouldn't try to go for girls in school becuase they know all about me and my previous trouble

and that I should go for new girls whom I've never seen before. That I should hang out at my local mall.
I just want to know what you all think about that and if it is really true.
