There's something to be said for Non-committal Make-outs (NCMO). I know I give people the impression (especially on this blog) that my goal in life is to strive for non-committal make-outs, but that's not the case. What I DO do, normally, is try to snog girls that I think would be fun to snog. That doesn't make them NCMO's. Even though I know I probably won't call her, she doesn't know I'm not planning on going out with her again, so the make-out can't be truly "non-committal". Its only a NCMO if both parties know it, right? That's what I think, at least.
I went out with Shera on Saturday. It was so much fun. The best part was that I was able to touch, flirt with and eventually snuggle a girl I was in the MTC with. It felt so weird and so extremely good. Kinda like I was breaking some rules or something.
During dinner, Shera told me about how she had recently broken up with this other guy (who happened to be an AP in our mission and he was a total dumb loser brain). Shera told me that she'd dated him since they'd both returned from their missions 7 months ago, but she had decided to break up with him because he couldn't commit. Then, out of nowhere, she tells me that he's been calling her again recently and she fully expected to get back together with him. Normally, this would have been a mood killer, but for some reason it wasn't. We kept talking and laughing and reminiscing about Ireland. It was so much fun. I didn't even think about the fact that we were, most likely, on our ONLY date.
When we got to her house, we ended up sitting in the car for another hour talking about her boyfriend ("We were on a break!") and other miscellaneous things. Then, all of a sudden, we were kissing. It was the most fun I've had kissing a girl in a really long time... and we never even left our bucket seats. It was like, we both knew it was our only chance to smooch and we took full advantage. We both knew that by this time today, she'd be back together with her boyfriend and we'd never have another opportunity. It was so much fun. I think that Shera was my first, true NCMO.
