Bathrobe basics: wearing one after 9:00 a.m. on a weekday and beyond 20 ft. from your front door could be cause for alarm. For example.
Today’s climate, coupled with a wariness for rejection and my fear of imposing, means I’m going to need a woman to literally make a sign saying “YES, I AM INTO YOU, LET’S GET DOWN!” or words to that effect. Actually, just a sign that says, “YES, I LIKE YOU IN A ROMANTIC WAY” would suffice. Thanks to a well-founded wariness of rejection, and my nearly life-long fear of imposing, the second sign seriously might be needed.
Sometimes, its hard not to have high expectations when you’re really looking forward to something. Conversely, having no expectations while looking forward to something is very freeing and can make what you’re looking forward to even better.

“Prepare for the worst, hope for the best” – not necessarily a mantra, but more of a strategy for most of my life.
