I can't believe he said no
I may not be dating but some of my friends are.
The other day I caught up with some girls friends, most of whom I hadn't seen in a while. Ms Cool Cat was sharing about the recent demise of her relationship. It surprised me to know that he was the one who called it off because he had always been really into her. The thing that got to her the most was that she wasn't even interested in him initially but ultimately was won over and then started to genuinely like him. And after a happy few months, he randomly decided to break up with her for no real good reason and most of all was reluctant to talk about it properly and give closure.
Granted we all thought that he handled it immaturely but that sparked up a topic about guys we couldn't believe rejected us.
Not that we're being all high and mighty, thinking we are better than everyone else. But if we're honest with ourselves, there have been times when we went on a date with a guy where frankly you know that you're "better" than he is. But when he turns out to be the one who decides not to contact you again, you can't help but be slightly offended. Afterall you're "better" than he is, how is it that he gets to reject you instead?
One of the girls had the best story which had us all in absolute tears from laughing so hard.
The guy was cross-eyed. And yes he was the one who chose not to contact her again.
It's been a few years but she still hasn't quite gotten over it...
