Oh yeah, now I remember

I'm slowly (quickly?) remembering why adolescence sucked. Mainly it boils down to self-doubt. I just got myself a good little dose of that. I called High School Guy and we had a nice chat. We were talking about British Musician and how I didn't think I was going to take him up on his soon to come offer of going out. HSG jokingly asked why (after he had spent some time describing a few reasons why BM wasn't probably the best date) and I said, "I like his friend more." But he didn't bite. He made some cheesy comment about BM not having any friends. And then the conversation moved on. I'm pretty sure I wasn't wrong about there being some kind of spark between us. But here's where the doubt comes in. Did I come on too strong? Should I not have called him? Does he think I'm a stalker? Did I freak him out? Read the signs wrong? Who the hell knows?

It's all fun and games until someone stops playing the game.

Umm, I think we've had this conversation before. Boys. Dumb. No get witty hints. I think HSG just entirely missed what you meant.

C'mon! Guys can't be THAT dumb! Seriously? Man. If they are that just makes me wonder why I want one. I should just get a puppy.

Listen girl...they have just as much selfdoubt as you do. They don't read into things in quite the same way.

If you like this guy, just brush it off and keep on truckin'

I think Josh is right. Trust me, I am married and have known my husband for 6 years and he still doesn't get the witty hints. Loves me, but just doesn't get it.

Yes, my child, they CAN be that dumb. As can girls. When it comes to relationships, we humans are about as dumb as doorknobs. Dumber probably, 'cause we don't always know when to open (or shut) the damn door.

Puppies, on the other hand, pee on the carpet.
