you know that thing where you know a person and you don’t quite have a crush on them. But being alone with them feels kind of special and different. And you don’t quite have a crush on them, but you can see things maybe going somewhere. and you look forward to seeing them again because you want to parse out whether you want to be much closer to them than you are now. And you don’t have a crush on them, but they’re kind of lovely in a lot of ways and thinking about that makes you smile on the inside, but not on the outside yet??? Like because everything in the situation isn’t ripe yet??? But there is potential?? kind of like this unripe banana:
Yeah, I’m feeling that.
