So today I asked my best guy friend why, despite having been in a dominantly male environment for the past 7 years, nobody likes me. Honestly, I’ve been pretty confident in myself. Looks wise and personality wise. I think I speak for all 4 of us when I say that. However, we’re somehow… all single… and with the exception of @unjustnyx, we’re single to the point where there is no one making an effort for us.
One of my close friends thought it’d be fun to try online dating, so I thought . . . why not? She’s honestly the sort that was TOTALLY against online dating and she hardly ever tries anything new. For her to actually make an account and start trying out an app to find someone made me realize . . . that I should give this a shot too. At the end of the day, the two of us, including Selene, were totally . . . over this online dating. No more. Continue reading
We’re sitting in a comfortable silence, each lost in our own thoughts, after a long and exciting day out. I’m on my phone, smiling to myself as I flip through photos of the day and wishing that days like this could last forever–when he asks if we can make one stop on the way home. I glance up at him, wondering what he where he could possibly still want to go at this late hour, only to find that he’s staring back at me with an unreadable expression. Confused and wanting to get to the bottom of that look, I nod. He grins and turns to lead the way, one hand intertwined with mine, the other hand in his pocket clutching something out of my view…
… looking at that spontaneous write, I can’t tell if it’s actually cute, or if I’ve just lost my mind because of the stress of the past week. But yeah, that was supposed to be my take on what kind of proposal I’d wish for–despite the fact that I don’t have a boyfriend.
Since unforgivingathena attended her friend’s surprise proposal, Nyx thought that it’d be a good idea for us to share our ideal proposals. I think as I grow older, my ideal proposal will change but for the time being, this is it. (We’re totally getting ahead of ourselves when none of us even have boyfriends. It’s good to plan ahead right? Yeah, I’m just trying to convince myself that . . . yeah, no.)
Here we go!
I recently met a new guy and he was cute! Yay! I don’t have a full-on crush on him but I do get the feeling that I would like to know him better. I feel kind of shallow because I realize that a lot of my crushes start with me noticing some guy’s looks and then wanting to know the person better after. (I’m trying to change that and be more open minded, but it’s hard.) That’s not the worse though that happens, I think. Sometimes I start analyzing little body language cues that the guy gives or try to remember all the words he said to see if there were any hints of a crush on me. I admit that I do get obsessed with the puzzle of finding out whether he likes me back. My worst habit is . . .
I’m not sad that Serious Guy got a girlfriend. I’m disappointed that he didn’t tell me that he got one. Rich Guy was the one that told me over a group call.
… at least for now (maybe).
Figured I’d post something to give @unforgivingathena a break from reading about people talking about her and QB =) I’m sure the other writers have done something like this at some point in time anyways…
It’s not that I particularly want to remain single, but from a rational perspective, I can’t foresee myself getting into a romantic relationship anytime in the near future. First and foremost, the main reason would probably be because…
