February 28, 2014.
On about February 13, you asked me, “what if a boy asked me out?” You were wondering about whether or not you’d have my permission to go out. I of course said, “Yes.” You thought that you’d be asked out for Valentine’s Day. As it turns out, Valentine’s Day was a “snow day”. There was no school. The potential “ask out” came and went. I mentioned this yesterday and you thought the “ask out’ might occur today. You again asked for my permission. I said, “Yes, because you know karate.” This gave us both a chuckle. We talked about being safe and asserting yourself. I also wanted to be sure that I knew where you were.
At about 3:30, I received a text from you, “at Manny’s with the guy.” Woo hoo! You walked around town with Matt and since then, you’ve been quite happy. During your time together, he asked you if you wanted to be his girlfriend. Your answer was, “Yes.” Okay Maya! Welcome to a new chapter of Maya’s life journal. Congratulations and mazel tov. I’m so happy for you.
