Dating 101: Am I Dating Out Of My League?

Lately, I've been running.  Two miles.  Every day.  This is quite different from my usual after school routine a few months ago which had included a bottle of Carlo and reality T.V.

 So last Thursday, as I was running my little heart away on the treadmill, I look up to see a hot, bronzed, muscular guy in front of me.  The same one I had randomly hooked up with a few months ago–the first night I met him.  Random hook ups like that are totally not my style, but this guy just happened to catch me in the right place, at the right time.  He was sweet when we hooked up.  He wasn't forceful and when I woke up in the morning, he drove to get me food.  While I was still sleeping in his bed.  Quite gentlemanly, if you ask me.

The only thing that turned me off to this guy was the fact the he was just too good to be true. He was entering a body building competition in a month or so, so while his social life was nonexistent, his muscles definitely were not.  He was smart (he tutored other students – Aw!), involved and really took care of himself.  Basically, he was like, the perfect guy. And this is exactly what scared me away from him.

I had this unnerving feeling whenever I would talk to him that he was simply out of my league–almost like having a casual conversation with Brad Pitt.  He could have his pick of any girl, so why the hell would he want little, not-so-fit, hippie-esque, totally outside-the-box me?  I knew it wasn't just insecurity, there was something else there, too. I've normally liked guys who I thought were equally attractive as I am, and I still got jealous and nervous around them.  How the hell would I ever keep my cool with a guy who was HOTTER than me? 

Well, I guess I'll get the chance to find out.  He's asked me to hang out this weekend.  And although I'm super nervous, I'm stoked as well.  I just don't know whether to get my hopes up, and how to deal with the fact that I already think this guy is, well, better than me…at least when it comes to genes.

What about you girls?  Have any of you had any experiences dating guys way out of your league?
