Ever been told you are the girl right now? What did you love about it? How did it make you feel? Or did it not make you feel good and question your every move? And guys lets be honest how many have manned up and been brutally honest and said that to a girl?
Here's a story for week three of the summer series: Lessons Learned
Hey, from the girl that was the girl of the moment and was told so to her face. How romantic but I went with it because frankly, I loved the honesty. Of course in the back of her head, she imagines she could change him if she wants more. Being brutally honest can be intriguing and attractive at times. Can you ever go from the girl right now, the one who appeases his boredom, to being seen in a more serious light, to being more?
The girl right now is the one he snapchats consistently and also happens to be his best friend on snapchat. She also gets him through periods of dullness throughout the day whether it be at class or work. She is intriguing and the unknown as is he and it excites them both. He tells her things through late night facetime calls that she would never expect him to say. Or he would never expect to share. It is in these moments he cracks and she sees more of him than he lets on. She sees the potential but what does he see.
Then you take a leap and do some crazy things. Crazy things include driving hours to see him when you've never met in person. Could she become more to him by meeting him? Or would reality set in for her and the excitement fade? The words he's said, lead to less and less meaning.
Maybe it becomes too real once you meet. This idea you both have dreamed up in your head, this perfect bubble, bursts. Are we what each other thought we would be? Do we meet the expectation set forth in snapchat, texting, and facetime? Or are we both a disappointment of each other? Or is there still some intrigue, after all you have only met once.
She wonders if she has the potential or ability in his eyes to become more than just the girl right now. Can she change him or can he change her to accept the fate he has long declared? Maybe, he is part of her summer to become yet another lesson?
This lesson is that if he doesn't want more from the girl right now he is doing her a favor. He's saving her time and not leading her on. In addition, it's his loss, not hers. Despite everything she still sees his potential and wonders about him. The snapchat streak continues...... begging the question will she or could she become the girl right now again and not someone of the past.
The girl right now is all about the Right Now, living in the moment, being spontaneous and perfect timing, Exactly when will that be again is yet to be determined.
