2 + 2 = 4


I’m pretty good at ignoring the obvious, or at the very least pretending I don’t see the obvious when it’s sitting right in front of me.  And usually when it comes to boys I’m pretty competent at not seeing that they are flirting and/or interested, with very limited exceptions:

– Chaos (I reluctantly concurr with random co-worker that his actions are a crush-indicator)

– Mr. Gray (a title given by one of my co-workers to another one, one who frequently flirts with me)

– Mr. Jay (the boy I visited in November)

I feel in an odd place with Mr. Jay because we’re going to a music festival together next month.  He knows I don’t want a relationship and that’s fine, but it’s just rare for a guy to be so vividly clear about how he’s interested in me.  I guess traditionally a guy would back off he realizes the girl is not interested, but he just keeps coming like the bloody Energizer bunny.

Which I suppose should be flattering.

I guess the reason this whole situation gets to me is because of the fact that I know he’d be a good guy for me.  I know he’s the type of guy that would treat me right and understands my quirkyness and actually seems to like it.  But no matter how hard I try I just can’t seem to muster up some chemistry.  It’s an odd situation that seems to be cyclical, and I just can’t seem to figure out exactly what to do about it.  On one hand I feel like I should cut him out of my life, seeing as how I feel horrible and like I’m dragging him along in some way, even though my intentions are clear.  But on another, why deny us both friendship?  And we have a pretty good friendship.  He also strikes me as the type that I could possibly fall in love with down the road, if I could just get into a state of like, which I cannot.

Ugh.  In a pathetic way I miss the Chaos-days and their predictable pitfalls — in a way I think I had less invested in him than I do with my friend, and with that a lot more to lose.

    I don’t think you can have passion with anyone you feel you mostly know.

    And you can’t feel comfortable with anyone you don’t feel you mostly know.

    So… quandary.

      That actually makes perfect sense and has validity in many situations in my past, present, and likely future.
