Something Feels Strange - 18

Something Feels Strange…

By Tiffany B. Quinn

Yes... I like Tom. He is a good guy and comfortable to be around. Throughout the conversation Laurie has to send me silent signals to remind me to not slip back into boy mode while we talk.

I think Tom likes talking to a girl who acts more like a guy—he is obviously not trying to impress me, just normal guy to guy talk.  It feels good.
