It was a {weather()} {dayOfWeek()}.
I was unsure about asking him out on a date. We had known each other for over six months, but I couldn't work up the nerve. I knew he was single, we got along great, but... what if he turned me down? Or was straight? Dating in the workplace had never worked out for me. But he was cute! And we got along! But I just wasn't sure.
(I'm such a nervous wreck!)
-> Chapter_1

{&(What should I do?) | (What if I didn't say anything?) | (Should I ask him out?) | (Maybe I should move to another city?)}
+ [(Did he even like guys?)]
~ fretCount++
-> Chapter_1
* [I should just do it!]
I let it go for weeks and weeks. I kept seeing him in the office. We'd smile -- well, I'd smile and sometimes he'd smile back. (I lived for those smiles.)
- fretCount > 2:
After thinking about it multiple times, I finally asked him out.
~ feeling = fretting
- fretCount < 2:
Finally, I asked him out, and he accepted with a smile!
~ feeling = happy
Why hadn't I thought about what I was going to wear?
Here I am, 30 minutes before the date and I haven't picked out my clothes!
* (Look_Good) [Pick out something good.] I took some time and picked out something good.
* (Random_Clothes) [Don't bother.] I just grabbed some clothes off the floor and ran out.
- Finally, I was ready.
He greeted me at the door of his apartment. {Look_Good: "You look good, {name}!"}{Random_Clothes: "Ready?"}
But I hadn't made dinner plans! And they we were, standing outside his apartment.
He turned to me. "What should we eat?"
-> Pizza_Choices("")
=== Pizza_Choices(previousChoice) ===
{previousChoice != "": (We just talked about about having {previousChoice}.) }
* [Pizza?] He shook his head. "I don't like pizza."
-> Freak_Out ->
-> Pizza_Choices("pizza")
* [Salad?] "Not a salad."
-> Freak_Out ->
-> Pizza_Choices("salad")
+ [Nothing?] {"We have to eat something!"|"Stop being silly, {name}!"}
-> Pizza_Choices("nothing")
* [Sushi?] "Sushi sounds good!"
We walked to the local sushi place.

-> END
=== Food_Choices ===
The place was only moderately crowded and we made our way over to a table. After getting our menus, I pondered my choices: sashimi, makizushi, ramen, tempura, and, of course, sushi.
"How are you feeling?" he asked.
"I'm... {feeling}?"
"Oh? What are you {feeling} about?"
=== Freak_Out ===
(Did I freak out over getting the food choice wrong?)
+ [No]
(I didn't freak out.)
+ [Yes]

- freakOutCount > 2:
I was so stressed out that we ended the date early!
