Maybe not out of nowhere, since you were watching it at the time

It's always tough when you start a new relationship, and you're trying to figure out when and how to admit certain things about your past. Is that a first date confession? A post-third date confession? After-we've-slept-together? Does it require booze? Does he really need to know, ever?

And then, sometimes, without warning, while you're sitting in front of the TV, he'll just up and ask you out of nowhere:

"So, how many times have you seen Titanic?"

You pause, look at him, and wonder if it's too soon.

"You mean in theatres?" You ask, hesitantly.

"No, total," he says, still thinking it's an innocent question, not realizing...just what he's gotten himself into.

"uhm...(cough). Well, I saw it fourteen times in theatres. I don't know how many after that." His eyes widen.

But a few moments later, just like that, everything is fine again. He knows now, and you've both grown a little bit closer.

You're a closet Titanic junkie -- and he still likes you, anyway.

Fourteen times? Holy crap! You must really like him.
