The revving heart of my hopefulness, kicked into gear anew, is the most precious thing about me, I refuse to vilify it.
There are different ways to be confused about how someone’s disappointed you. Some lie about the future because they wanted to forget the past. But some will lie about the past because they think it will give you both a future.
I find it a little forward when a person asks me point blank, “Are you in a relationship?” But it seems to be a generally acceptable social thing to do. So fine, ask me.
However, when I say “No”, do not ask me “Why not?” A relationship isn’t like a new dress or DVD or something, where you decide one day you want one and then go to the store and pick one out. Honestly, I’m not quite sure what sort of an answer you expect to hear. I know you don’t want to hear me complain about my continued failed love life. I could always answer with the cliche “I haven’t found the right guy yet.” But one would think that was obvious by being single still. Why force me into continued awkward conversation? What do you get from it?
