Things continue to go well with the new girl. Although, I have found that conversation can lag sometimes without shared experience. Different is very cool, but I am limited in my ability to make sarcastic observations about the US when she has not grown up here. The result is that I am becoming more sarcastic to others. I think the next step might be an extended "this is what I think is funny" date. If she doesn't run screaming or otherwise shrink in horror, this could be something.
