|I met a boy

After picking up the van in Amsterdam, I noticed a coffee shop right next to the parking space. (A shop that sells beans and paraphernalia.) I wanted to get an espresso maker like the one R used while camping at Pinnacles. The proprietor was really nice. He helped a Polish couple buy coffee, and then helped me. He was really nice. He helped me select a pot and coffee, and then we talked for a bit. It was a really pleasant conversation, and not uncomfortable or awkward at all. I mentioned we will be camping in the van parked in front of his place, and he said I could use the upstairs bathroom. So I did. He said my friends were welcome too. Then I went into the van and told C and J. C wanted to, so I escorted her in with Saryn. I talked more with the guy. Then C went back and took Saryn, and I talked more. Then I went back to the van. When I returned, C had a big smile and said "He really likes you." Then the same thing happened with J. He too smiled big and said he same thing.|
The special thing was that I didn't know. Looking back, it was pretty clear. If we weren't leaving I would have loved to spend time with him. He definitely made it clear when he got off work, and gave me his card and would like a postcard. As soon as I find one, I'll send him a note.
I'm so flattered. I was feeling very awkward about gender, bathrooms, and not fitting in. Also I wasn't feeling connected to anyone except Saryn. I felt that he read me a trans, and thought I was cool. Either because I was trans, of it didn't matter or all. It doesn't matter.
He's super cute, with the warmest smile.
