# A wild riley I met

I'm sitting in a bar browsing SE and then it happens,

a girl comes right through the door and my prefix just leaves my lips.

Sitting right next to me I already think about our future. I catch myself repeatedly saying my infix.

Can you feel the electricity in the air? I can't do the first step, why isn't she a suffix.

Anyway, meeting her could be a ? for my marriage.

Hint 1:

For the suffix: My surname is "hode" so my friends gave me a funny nickname.

• Since we really hadn´t many rileys in the past here is one. The spelling could be better but hope you have fun :) – Doomenik Aug 9 '18 at 5:59
• I think @Riley would like this puzzle :D – Mr Pie Aug 9 '18 at 6:04
• Just that the hint is clear, the "I" is between infix and suffix. – Doomenik Aug 9 '18 at 8:55

It could be a

damnification

It fits the prefix description better, but obviously all credit goes to @hexomino and his answer :)

• Yeah, it seems to be the best fit. +1 – hexomino Aug 10 '18 at 14:05

I'm not entirely sure about the prefix but my guess is

Meeting her could be a justification for my marriage.

a girl comes right through the door and my prefix just leaves my lips.

Just - I read this as "my prefix, just, leaves my lips",

Sitting right next to me I already think about our future. I catch myself repeatedly saying my infix.

If - which you would say a lot when considering the possibilities of the future.

Can you feel the electricity in the air? I can't do the first step, why isn't she a suffix.

Cation - I wouldn't have gotten this without the hint but your friends must call you "Cat" (Cat Hode) and so you are looking for your cation (attracted to the cathode).

I

As mentioned in the comments, the emboldening of the I indicates it comes between the infix and the suffix.

• I like your solution:) I only had a different prefix in my head that fits the marriage part a bit better. Just think what could a guy say if he sees a hot girl/boy. – Doomenik Aug 9 '18 at 18:39
• "She's a real beaut!" "Oh damn!" Oh please say it's not "ram"... – iiiidk Aug 9 '18 at 19:19
• @iiiidk oh, It´s not ram but damn you wrote the word :D – Doomenik Aug 10 '18 at 4:26
