Had a chance to “connect” with an old high school crush. He found me through one of those social networking sites and added me as his friend. Anyway, I remember how I went gaga over this guy. I was head over heels “in love” with this guy for so long!
Now that I’ve seen him again, I wonder why I liked him in the first place? He’s not good looking, so that’s out. He’s not a stimulating conversationalist [at least not for me], so that’s out, too. He’s kind of a guy’s guy, you know? Kind of rough in his ways and crude, hehehe. So why did I like this guy?!
To be fair to him, I did try to find out why I liked him back then. We chatted for awhile and I was polite enough to laugh at his jokes [they were crude jokes by the way, not witty], I tried hard to talk on the same wavelength as his.. we talked about work, life and stuff… and for the life of me, I still couldn’t figure out why I liked him.
When I found out that he’s a graphic artist now, I thought perhaps we would click because we practically work in the same creative field.. still nothing. 😐 Back in high school, it meant the world to me every time he’d talk to me or pay me any attention. Bonuses were his being sweet and all. Now that he’s paying me more attention than I’d care to get, it does nothing for me. Go figure.
I guess it was just one of those silly things that you go through when you’re young. Thank God, we didn’t get together back then! It would have been disastrous!
I must admit though, that when I saw his friend request, my heart did a little pitter-patter. I got all excited, too. But as with most anything that has to do with my pseudo love life, it was short-lived. 😀
That’s about the size of it.
