Baaaaaabe.. you take this one.
I could’ve sworn we’ve both posted about this before, but whatever.
Late last summer after some extensively heavy flirting and mutual infatuation Andrew took a leap of faith and decided to come visit me in person for five or so days so we could see if there was anything worth pursuing between us. I picked him up midmorning on Thursday the 26th of September from Newark Airport. I parked in short-term parking and got as close to the exit terminal as I could without having to deal with security.
I was able to see through a side window behind the screens displaying arriving flights to see him walking down the hallway before he could see me. He rounded the corner and I was just kind of immediately there, which surprised him and kind of caught him off guard. First thought: “shit, he’s like way more attractive in person, what do I do?" We shook hands and I pulled him in for a hug and we didn’t let go for a few minutes.
He had to go to the bathroom after the flight, so as we’re walking over I noticed he was blatantly checking me out and just smiling the whole time and it was adorable. Then when we got outside he got shivers and said he was freezing, even though it was only about 70 degrees, so I poked fun at him for being a Southerner. When we were walking up to my car he’s like, “don’t tell me it’s the one with the HRC bumper sticker on the back,” even though it totally was and he started laughing at me.
Driving back to my place I got a little lost because driving around the Newark Airport is a goddamn nightmare, but once I knew where I was going I launched into my whole spiel about why New Jersey is the best state ever. I don’t think he was interested in the content, but he was just happy to be with me. Once at my house I poured some water for him while he lay on the couch and he said something like, “I can’t believe you still haven’t kissed me yet.” I was really nervous up to this point because I wanted to kiss him, but didn’t know if that was gonna be too forward and was just waiting for some kind of signal from him. After that I went over and kissed him on the couch and that’s all you’re getting out of me on this topic.
