Hi Vag what's up? Here's my situation. I'm 25, I've been single for about 6 years, and haven't dated in nearly as long. I just started med school this fall at a pretty small school; there are 70 students in my class, and we're going to be in all the same classes together for the next 4 years. I met a girl in my class during orientation week. It was her birthday and she invited a bunch of students to come out and celebrate with her. Despite not knowing her, I got her a card and wrote some silly story in it, as if we had known each other for a while; I figured she'd appreciate the humor. Turns out she did like it, we went out dancing that night and I felt something click with her. At the end of the night she gives me a kiss on the cheek and tells me that this was the best birthday she's ever had. I decide that I'm going to ask her out on a date. Then school starts, and you all know med school's no joke. I see her in all of my classes every day, but the courseload doesn't leave much free time, and soon the thought of going out on a date is put on the back burner. It turns out that this girl and I end up forming up a group with a few other students for study sessions on the weekends. Cool, because I get to spend time together with her, but it's always in a group with 3 or 4 of my classmates. As the quarter progressed, we've got to know each other pretty well, and I still feel the little spark that I felt when I first met her. I think she does too. Unfortunately, our schedules are booked solid with studying so I haven't had a shot at taking her out yet, and what little free time we end up having is spent hanging out as a group with the other students. Our weekend plans are almost always determined at the end of study session, when our group all decides to go out for drinks after studying together all day or something like that. We've had movie nights where she'd curl up on the couch next to me, but we'd have a couple friends in the room with us sitting on the floor or something. She definitely flirts with me, but I've just had trouble getting one-on-one time with her, and I'm not about to make a move in front of our classmates. Anyway, this Friday, there's an opera going on downtown. This Friday also happens to be the last day of finals for this quarter. No studying this weekend, so no excuses. She mentioned she's into classical music and ballet and that kind of thing so I picked up a pair of tickets. She's really excited about going and has been counting down the days since I bought the tickets. She's done some cute stuff like hiding post it notes in my books with the day countdown written on them, or referring to me as "Pavarotti" when she texts me, or told me she's getting something really nice to wear that night. Anyway, it's been 10 weeks since I've met her and this is the first time that we're going to be going out together without the whole crew in tow. So, do you guys think that I have a shot with this chick. I mean, 10 weeks seems like a long time, especially by Vaginarium standards, to go between meeting a girl and taking her out on a date? I think she likes me, but I haven't been on a date in years and honestly, I don't remember what to do. Also, 10 weeks has been a long time for me to play this up in my head, and I'm probably really overthinking this. Give me some feedback folks, do you guys have any advice for me to clear my head and just flow with it? I think that if I can just get my brain to stay out of my way, this date is going to go great. Help me out OT!
