Over Thinker, Party of one

I always over think things. I know this is not always the best way to go out things. Just so you know, I'm aware of this fault of mine.

So, I met a guy. Kind of. We'll call him Soldier, cause he is one.

We went to high school together, he was in the class below me. Not that I ever talked to him. He was an underclassmen, and psh..they were just babies :) But because of the wonders of facebook..we became 'friends' because on facebook, you kind of just friend everyone that you 'know' or have 'met' ya know?

Anyhow, one night I was kind of just browsing around and, on facebook they have a 'home page' they has little mini feeds of what your 'friends' have been up to. And Someone had written on this guys wall. So I decided to check out his page, see what he's been up to. He had a really cute profile picture of him running in a Disney Marathon with the Epcot ball behind him, and I kinda thought, what the's not like I know him. So I decided to e-mail him and tell him that I liked his profile picture. About 5 minutes later..I got an email back! He said thanks and that he liked mine too :) And what had I been up to? Had we talked since high school even? So I e-mailed him back..and I said..Did we even ever talk in high school? Told him what I had been up to and what not (that's for your Kris). We emailed back and forth a couple times a day for a couple days, then we started talking on the phone. It was nice :)

On the 30th of December, I decided to be spontaneous (for once!) and call him when I was on the road and had him tell him where he lived so I could bring him Christmas Cookies to him :) it was awkward! haha..but he liked the cookies and that's what counts :) Then on New Years, we talked until 4 in the morning, when I had to work at 9! It was worth it though. He sang to me haha..needless to say he had been drinking!

And then last night, we FINALLY went out :) Boy was I nervous. I hate this part of 'dating' I haven't been on a first date, or really hang out even with a guy in 3 years! I was sweating and my legs were shaking and everything! Afterwards my neck hurt from being so tense and my leg muscles hurt today! Ridiculous!

We met at the Mall and saw Yes Man. He paid :) So it was kind of like a half a date! It was SUPER funny and we had a good time, but we both had places to be after, so we left..and I'm not sure, but I think he wanted to give me a hug goodbye, but he didn't. I think it might have been because we were in the mall and it felt like everyone was staring at us, because we were the only 'couple' that wasn't holding hands or had their arms around each other.
We talked later last night too, and we're thinking about going to a couple of museums and renting The Dark Knight.

It was kind of awkward, but not a bad awkward. I just have some concerns, which is why the title of my post today is so appropriate. Here they are in random order:

He was engaged. Semi-recently.
He is in the Army.
He'll be starting in the reserves (2 weekends a month, 1 week a year) in February
He'll be leaving for GA or OK in October for 6 weeks, then to AZ for 6 months, and then probably to NC for who knows how long. I'm not sure I'm okay with that.
He has a tattoo of his zodiac sign..really.
He is 15 months and 4 days younger than I am.

Stay Tuned...

Yes, you might be overthinking it... my non-professional opinion is that I'd probably be feeling the same way. The unavoidable time away sounds horrid...I know if The Boy were gone that long, I wouldn't know what to do with myself. The zodiac sign thing isn't all that cool either, lol. But, hey, let him buy you dinner, have a few good make-outs and see where it all goes! :)
