Looking For A New Love...

And his name is Shabba. Lol

He's cute but dark dark dark...just the way I like 'em.

Sidenote: I talked to my first bf on FB. Let's call him YingYang (YY)...firstly because he's a twin. He's sweet and nice. His twin is the devil. Lol.

Anyway, YY is sooo different from the past ummm...10 guys I've, of course. He's light light light...he has gorgeous gray-blue eyes and he's a big goof ball. I remember kissing him and feeling electricity.


Anyway, Shabba. We went to high school together. I liked him and we always flirted but he was on some different stuff. He never pushed. Probably because I was on some different militant uber-nerd stuff. I saw him at the memorial for my high school principal. It was so weird going back because I first grew out my afro senior year of high school and there I was, natural again.

It was different. Maybe it was the heels, the outfit, or the make-up but random dudes were coming up to me saying how they had a crush on me back then or how I should model now or how gorgeous I am. Like..ummm....this dude, I couldn't even tell you his name, a class we had together, or anything was like..."Oh, because you're all gorgeous now, you can't speak."

I was like, "Hello and you are..." polite...though, lol.

He was like, "Oh come on.."

I said, "I'm sorry. Are you sure you have the right person?"

He was like, "Yes, Nina X." I was shocked. Before we could continue, we were moved by security because of crowd control. My friend laughed at me later because I'm horrible with names and faces. I blame working with a lot of people. I've seen so many faces, its hard for me to place people sometimes.

Anywhosies, Shabba was there. He looked great in his slacks and dress shirt we hugged. I told him we would have to reconnect.

I called him Saturday. I was free. He didn't call me back. I called him Sunday. He didn't call me back. I was about to lose hope until we caught up on FB.

FB, the great enabler.

Convo went something like this..

Me: Shabba!
S: Hey you! I'm sorry I didn't get back to you. I'm in Atlanta with my cousin. I've been meaning to come but suddenly, I'm unemployed and decided to come.
Me: Me too! Yay! Ok, not yay, but...
S: lol
Me: but don't worry. You don't call me back, I know where you live. I'll hunt you down!
S: oh word! Can you cook?
Me: of course! Its in the big girl's handbook!
S: ok, then maybe we can work something out...
Me: cool cool. What would you want?
S: to get in your stomach
Me: hunh?
S: jk
I can't help it.
Me: right....anyways...I'm upset with you. I've been trying to holla at you since freshman year and you've been playing me...
S: not true. You left me. Lonely. Broke.
Me: never trust a big butt and a smile. This girl is poisooooonnnnn.
S: lol
Yup. I never trusted you. I knew better
Me: :-O
S: lol
I'm lying. You were the most trustworthy of them all. You were always honest and sweet
Me: awww thanks. You were always funny and charming
S: I'm still me
Me: I'm still me
S: you better be
Me: lol. I would like to get to know grown man Shabba
S: You will. Trust me you will.

Yayyyyyy! I really like him. Hopefully, he doesn't disappoint.

It would be great if something could come of this, especially since you've known him for so long. I'm happy too!
