So I realize that my story cuts off short and, as Dan has pointed out on many occasions, makes him look like a doof, so I will fill you in on the happily ever after.
After trudging inside, feeling deflated and sad because I thought there was a real connection, I curled up in bed and decided to forget all about it. But the next morning when I woke up there was an e-mail waiting for me.
He had realized a few seconds after he pulled away what had happened and rather than turning around and going back he remembered that I'd mentioned the name of my blog, googled it, found my e-mail through my blog and wrote to me.
And so here we are, a year later, still giddy at the sight of each other, still all gross and cuddly/smoochy, completely in love.
And hopefully, they'll live happily ever after.
