Ok, so we are all well aware that we are 20 something bloggers, correct?! Alright, now that that is cleared up when did we end up back in high school? I would say elementary, but I think even the elementary kids have a better clue than most of us!
I was just informed by a friend that her friend told her (see, here we go) that we have to sit back and play the game. My friend is very new to the dating scene (as am I ). She just became newly single after breaking off a 5 year relationship that started when she was 19! Ok, so my reaction:
Game?! What kind of game? Are we going to play twister later? I’m good at Scene It, but I totally suck at scrabble..it’s boring. Oh. The dating game?…what is that?! Is that like prom date or girl talk, I had that when I was younger. OMG! Do they still make that?!!?! Ok, sorry what?! You mean if I like someone I can’t just say it? If something is wrong I can’t say hey you pissed me off because you are acting like a total douchebag! If they are confusing me I can’t just call him up and say “Hey! What the fuck is your deal?!”…no, thats not ok? Oh, well crap what do I do then? You play the game you say. Well, I like games, so what are the rules? Act like you don’t really care. Don’t let them see that you like them too much or too little, find the middle ground. If they break plans just act like it’s no big deal. Whoever doesn’t break wins. huh? Wins what exactly? ::Ding Ding Ding.. Captain pants you are our winner!! Come on down! You win the grand prize of a big fat box of confusion!!!!:: But what if i do want to hang out with them still after…oh, I shouldn’t say anything…but what if.. no…oh…ok.
Can someone please tell me whatever happened to handing someone a piece of paper that said “I like you. Do you like me? Please check yes or no?” When did we start hiding from our true feelings and playing this game? Back in the day a boy would have pulled your hair on the playground, you would chase him during a game of duck duck goose and that would be that, the chase would be over and he was your new boyfriend until you had a fight over sharing a snack pack and then you moved on to the kid whose mom packs oreos. But in the midst of your pudding fight the words “I dont like you,” “You suck” and “you are being mean” would have been involved I swear!
I believe I have reached a point in my life if you can just tell me if you like me or not that would save us both some time here. Either I bug you or you want to get to know me more or maybe you just want to “hang out”…either way, LET ME KNOW!!! I got shit to do! I don’t really have time for all this crap. I’m 25 and unfortunately my clock has started ticking at an early age and my dealing with bullshit meter is full. I also work in an industry where we really need to learn to trust each other and I have a lot to explain to you, so if you’re not up for it…there’s the door. They weren’t kidding when they said there are plenty of fish in the sea and in case you didn’t know, I’m dive certified!
