I know my problem is that I over analyze everything. I just don't understand why people can't be honest...especially in relationships. I have a friend who is really into this guy who is gorgeous, friendly, and INTERESTED back in her. Problem is, they haven't been completely open and honest about their feelings for each other.
Flirting is fun, but after 3 months of it, it's time to make a move already. Maybe they're both afraid of losing the friendship or taking the risk that things might not work out, but what if it did work out? I guess you could say that the love bug gives us opportunities. The question is though, will we act on it?
By the way, what happened to the good old days when guys actually asked a girl out on a date and planned it ahead of time? Classy guys are hard to find these days. If you are lucky enough to be married to a classy guy, then I envy you because there are far and few inbetween like that.
Remember in old black and white movies when the guy goes and asks the father's permission to take out his daughter. Guys today should be thankful. They only have to take the risk of getting rejected by the girl. Imagine having to worry about getting rejected by her father! LOL
On the other hand, there is always that annoying situation where the love bug only strikes you. Time and time again I've seen it happen to myself and my friends.
I started playing tennis with this guy at the beginning of the semester, and I instantly was drawn to his personality. When you click, you click. As our friendship and flirting progressed, I thought that something could potentially come out of this. You always try to look at the dating glass half full...even if the situation is really half empty.Eventually, I realized that I was in denial and that if he really was interested in me, he would have made more of an effort to spend time with me. I guess playing tennis together doesn't constitute a potential relationship. It just constitutes playing tennis...unfortunately.
So when does the love bug bite two people at the same time exactly? I'm thinking that it's not really a LOVE BUG, but instead a quality deductor. It helps you realize what you do and do not want in a potential mate. Then, when you meet the right person, you'll know.
Until then, I guess my friends and I will just have to heal our bug bites with chocolate, bubble baths, and some Frank Sinatra.
