Huzzah! I'm Attractive!

Long story short, a guy gave me his number AND email address, and I don't know why, but it makes me so very, very giddy.  I guess it's because I don't get many guys taking an interest in me.  I don't think they'd like me if they got to know the real me.  This time, I wasn't trying to impress anyone.  I was with my big sister being a goofball at a coffee shop.  The two guys struck up a conversation with us, and since I wasn't trying to attract their attention or anything, I participated in the discussion as myself.  I was silly and easily distracted, and demanded to hear 'the long version' of every story.  If I was genuinely interested in the topic, I wanted to know all about it, but if I wasn't, I didn't try to hide the fact.

What made me so happy though, was the compliments he gave me.  He didn't say anything about the color of my skin, or go on about how "proper" I talk, or comment on my tiny waist or bootylicious booty.  He did note that I have really long legs (I was sitting weird in my chair), and thought it was funny when I showed him I have long arms as well.  He told me I was adorably child-like in both mannerisms and appearance.  he way he phrased it was nicer though.  My point is, he complimented all the things about me that guys either don't comment on, or dislike altogether.  It was nice having someone be attracted to me because I'm cute and little for once.

He's a teacher, which is cool.  He teaches Arabic and Islamic culture, which is both interesting and uncommon.  He's a black Muslim, which actually isn't as strange as one might think; I tend to attract the Muslims.  He's 33 which is amusing, because he looks like a college student.  My friend approves of me meeting up with him in the future, so that means he's not a creeper.

Hmm, I'm really happy right now.  I have a real admirer!

How many days am I supposed to wait before I call?  Ugh, why didn't my parents let me date as a teenager so I would know these things?
