"do you have plans tonight to have dinner with another beautiful girl?" XL asked me. "otherwise i'm inviting you to dinner." without giving too much away, i told her i had plans. "can we have dinner tomorrow night?" i asked. "no," she said, and walked away. "if you told me earlier," i told her, trying to figure out if i could cancel dinner with sunmeng tonight. apaprently she can't have dinner tomorrow night because it's her dancing night. still, it felt a little good to have the shoe be on the other foot, since it's usually me inviting XL out to dinner but having her refuse me instead. why the sudden change of heart? i have been plying her with small flatteries, telling her how great she looked with her summer wardrobe of skirts. also the end of last week i told her how i wanted to qq chat with her every night but was afraid to do so. and then there was last week where i had dinner with a different girl every single night. suddenly i didn't seem so desperate, wasn't so clingy anymore, regaining my mojo. whatever the reason, my love life is getting pretty complicated. i've been hanging out with sunmeng more and more. she knows i see other girls, but i sort of just want to focus on one person with the limited time i have. and the thing with sunmeng is she never says no, unlike xianglian, whom i have to beg to do just the simplest things.
