Skating rink crush

I don't even know if this goes under "Relationships and Dating," because we're not in a relationship and we're not dating. But I don't have the energy to think up another category, so that's where it's going.

I have this crush at the skating rink. We're going to call him KC, 'cause that's where he's from - Kansas City. I knew it was somewhere in Missouri by the way he skates. I originally guessed St. Louis. I LOVE the way he skates. It's just so SMOOTH. And different from everyone else. We don't really have a skating style in NC. We are a hodge-podge of different styles. We have some folks from New York. We have some Chicago/James Brown skaters. We have a few Detroit skaters...then we have the youngins who think they are extras in ATL...

Anyway, he's so cute! He has dimples. And he's nice and can actually hold a conversation (as much as you can talk while skating). He will usually come and find me on the slow songs, because I can't keep up with him on the fast ones. He generally saves me from my Skating Rink Stalkers...usually some older men who are looking at me like I'm naked. Ugh. But besides that, me skating with KC usually causes a problem with Roll Bounce. I've told RB that he needs to get over it...I don't get to see KC often. He works/lives about an hour and a half from here, so he is not at the rink every week. I gotta get my skate in when I can! I come to the rink to skate, and that doesn't mean I'm always going to skate with the same person. Fools act like we are up in there dating or something. We're just skating! LOL

And that's really all it boils down to. I just like skating with him and talking to him. I don't want his number. I know his first name, but I don't even need to know his last name. We don't even have to interact when we are outside of the rink. I just need him to glide me around the rink for a few songs, and then I'm good for the rest of the week! LOL

I think this should be labeled under "To Be Continued".
Life is simple if we allow it to be. I think you all have a simple pleasant friendship and if you're happy with it, then tell RB to calm down and breathe!

Girl, RB doesn't know how to calm down. That is part of the problem. He wants everything yesterday. LOL!

OK - I will have to re-categorize as 'To Be Continued.' Nice! I should have asked you earlier. LOL

All I can handle at this point is a simple friendship, so I'm good with that. You start exchanging numbers and talking about personal stuff, next thing you know how it goes. That's why I don't even take it outside the rink. I went to the movies with RB and it just spiraled from there. LOL

I'm a big fan of crushes. They're great when they begin because they make you feel all giddy. Or maybe that's just me. LOL!

Keep gliding and enjoy it.

Marilie said...

It's not just you, girl. Like I said, he doesn't skate every week, but when I do see him, it's like "Yeah! He's here!" **insert giddy smile here**

We'll keep rollin', and hopefully he won't mess it up. LOL!

Girl, whoever knew there were different skate styles in different parts of the country????????? I just thought peopel just put the skates on and twirled around a bit. LOL!

Marilie said...

LOL! I didn't know either, until I started skating. The person I took lessons with in ATL, he skates Detroit style. That is what I am used to. When I got up here and saw all kinds of nonsense going on, I had to search hard to find someone who skates similar to what I do.

KC happened to catch me on a slow song...he also noted that not a lot of people skate like he does. We were skating on the same beat, so he asked me to skate. The rest is history! I am always hurting on Mondays after I skate with him...he does a lot of deep knee bending and it is a workout in itself just to make it through one song with him.
