Before you say anything, the janitor is actually my age. He is funny, too. And he looks exactly like Justin Long! In fact, when I first saw him, that's what I told him. I'm at a state university right now and I'm doing studio art so he's a janitor on my floor where I have my night classes, in the art building. He wears his black fedora when he does his work. So funny and personable.
We have kind of been talking on and off since school started basically. It was just this Tuesday when he asked me out. At least I think it's a date? He asked me my age, and I told him how I just turned 21 last Thursday. He said he will be 22 in May and that we should go drinking sometime. And then he asked for my number and asked if I was free Saturday night.
I was already thinking I could invite some friends of mine with me and we could all go together. It wasn't until he started texting me that same night that I got it into my mind that it was a date. When he texted me he told me that I didn't have to dress fancy if I wanted to and that he would pick me up. That kind of made me panic; is this a date? I even asked him. He said he'd prefer it to be just hanging out as friends yet now I feel like I shouldn't invite friends anymore since he's treating it like a date.
At least that's how I thought he was treating it from his text. Another friend told me that it was in fact a date, since he asked for me to go out for drinks and that he is just trying not to make me worry about the situation by saying we are just "hanging out."
I'm not sure now. I can tell we have chemistry which is nice, and I do like him. I just never thought of him that way. I also didn't expect him to be so direct in asking me out. I'm so curious as to the reason why he isn't at school, and why he is a janitor. He seems just as intelligent as a student here at school would be. I'm not going to psyche myself out with this one, I'm just gonna let it flow and see what happens Saturday I guess!
Also... is it strange I'm going out with a janitor? Be honest. Thanks!
