Need no more proof the universe is out to get me than a Kendrick concert at my school the day I get a weekend job.
WHEN YOU FIND SOMEONE WITH YOUR EXACT INTERESTS BUT YOU’RE TOO SCARED TO TALK TO THEM
do you ever go through those phases where you just don’t feel like talking to anyone for a few days and it’s not because you’re mad or anything you just don’t feel like talking???
"Can I have your number?"
I don’t know what it was about turning twenty, but I’ve been asked this question more in the last few months than my entire life. For the first time in fact. But for these guys that ask and have their somewhat reluctantly requests granted, I wish I had the opportunity to offer a disclaimer with those digits.
I’d tell them that within the five minutes of conversation we had that I wasn’t romantically invested. I’d tell them five minutes just isn’t long enough for me to know if I’m attracted or not. I’d tell them that if I was allowed to be perfectly honest that the texts you’ll most likely send won’t move me. I’d tell them don’t waste your time on me. In this one instance, typed words of feelings won’t mean much to me. I’d tell them I’m bored of rehashing the exact same conversations with different people. That maybe we should meet in person just to experience how we’d navigate the awkward silences together. That maybe I’ve read a few too many books and dating’s just not for me.
Maybe most of all I’d tell them that I’d like to be the person asking that question because it would truly mean something spoke to me about you. And maybe I’d put in more effort.
