Noun: the hidden power believed to control what will happen in the future; fate.
I have a mild obsession with cactus plants. After matching on Tinder, he initiated conversation with 'Nice cactus', obviously catching my interest. The comment was directed towards one of my photos which included myself in an awkward pose and a cactus. More than excited to be approached with words other than hi, I immediately responded and we bantered back and forth for a few days. He was cute and interesting and we shared a love for grilled cheese and gelato (from Italy). But as we all know, I was not (very) serious about dating and there was that huge issue with the hives and nervousness, so I prolonged the progression of the relationship with no end in sight. He ultimately (officially) asked me out with the date six days away so as to omit an excuse of prior plans; of course that didn't stop me.
