The truth is that I have checked out of this, whatever it is, emotionally many times, but I keep trying. And then you came along. Instant connection; although, I don’t think you felt it back then. But the point is, I am emotionally available. So when you say things like, “I’d be there to sweep you off your feet”, it isn’t fair.
No, I don’t get hit on much anymore. And when I do, I respond with cynicism every time. I don’t try. I don’t want to be hit on. I don’t want to date. I don’t want to play the games of mating rituals. I’ve been there and done that.
Don’t get me wrong, when you said that, it made my head spin, but I don’t want the questions of whether or not you really mean it. I want you to mean it, and that’s the problem. It feels like you’re playing games, and my gut rarely lies to me.
