Roses and Chocolate: A Woman's Best Friend

My day went wonderfully. It started out on the bus, of course, when a good guy friend of mine got on at the local grocery store, dressed in a suit and tie, holding a couple of grocery bags; One containing roses, and the other containing Hershey's Hugs and Caramel Kisses. The man who got on behind him asked him if I was the lady and Nate, of course, said yes. We walked around the mall until my shift was supposed to start. The woman running the newspaper kiosk even asked us if we were engaged. He escorted me to work and about ten minutes later, he came into my store and presented the roses and candy to me in front of all my co-workers. Then he took off. The rest of the day, I was higher than a kite. I have no romantic feelings for this guy, but it was still a nice gesture. Thinking it through, it's starting to look like this guy has feelings for me. I mean, a dozen red roses, Hershey's Hugs and Kisses? I talked to him tonight and he admits that I'm one of the four that he would consider a relationship with. Insane. I didn't think that I'm the type of girl who a guy would want as a girlfriend.
