So about 3-4 weeks ago I met this girl at a bar. We hit it off pretty well, so exchanged phone#'s. I called her up after a couple of days, and we have been talking pretty frequently since. She actually calls me or text messages me more often then I contact her. The only problem is that we have not gone out yet. I asked her out of few times, but each time she claims to be busy with work. She works as a social workers "family counsler" and I realize the hours are unpredictable and she is busy, but I find it insane we have not been able to get together for a couple of hours, I wouldn't mind doing something low key like going to Starbucks for a cup of coffee. I was even telling her the other night that I am forgetting what she looks like (havent seen her in 3.5 weeks.) She seems nice and I think we have a lot in common, but I don't think there is anything else I can do.
I am busy as well as I work full time and go to grad school part time, but I still have plenty of time to hang out. I find it incredible that we have not been able to go out. Today I sent her a text asking what she's doing later, but probably will not hear back till late tommarow night. She has this weird tendency to call me on Sat nights, after not talking on Thur/Fri, she'll call me Sat and during the course of the week.
I never knew it was so difficult for 2 people to go out on a date. The theory is quite simple, if they like each other, they go out again, if not, at least they tried and moved on. No big deal, or at least theoretically shouldn't be a big deal.
