What is our deal with not wanting to tell anyone (even our cats) who we like? It’s like out of fear if we speak of such a thing, the asshat Zeus will come down and strike cupid in the face who was floating around your head in his skimpies, chilling, trying to aim properly at that person you fancy. All because you told someone, you killed cupid. Not Zeus. You.
I guess it’s a lot of pressure when a naked guy in a sash and an arrows life is on the line you’d want to bottle it up. But does making the idea that you like someone, make it an actual real thing to tamper with if you tell someone else? I guess so. In a way, if you’ve sheltered yourself in your mind thinking you won’t get hurt because no one else knows. So rejection will only be a one person audience, and you got the front row seat ticket.
Still, I don’t want to give all the power to failed crushes that couldn’t become relationships all because you uttered their name. The Voldemort scenario. HE-WHO-SHALL-NOT-BE-NAMED. Although, if you did say your crushes name out loud and death eaters came and killed you, that would actually be quite unfortunate. And I apologize.
I don’t think we jinx it by telling someone else. I think we no longer hide from being rejected. Somebody else knows, so if that person doesn’t like you, someone else other than yourself will know that. Which kinda blows. So no, you don’t want to jinx it, you just don’t want to be seen yet until you’re confident in your feelings, and the other persons feelings toward you. At least, that’s my take on it.
Because, I like this guy, .. nevermind, i don’t want to jinx it.
I have a date Friday night with a pretty awesome guy that i’m excited about. Not excited as in, relationship potential. But excited in, we’re going to have a blast.
I kept trying to figure out what we’re going to do on the date so I can get some kind of idea of how to dress. He started dropping subtle hints, telling me its a dinner party, other people will be joining us, ect. I was all shades of confused. I’m like, a dinner party? Tonight he finally told me what we’re going to be doing.
HE’S TAKING ME TO A CLUE DINNER! A MURDER MYSTERY DINNER PARTY! I’M GOING AS MISS SCARLET! THESE ARE THINGS TO BE EXCITED ABOUT!
He wanted to double check that it be something that i’m into, and seriously, who wouldn’t be?! Now, in the back of my head i’ve watched too many episodes of Castle and i’m like, okay, there better not be no real murder. I’ve seen that movie before. But still, the fact that he’s that awesome to want to take a girl to a Clue game dinner party is pretty great. I picked a good one to date. The only way he can go up from here is if he can solve the murder. Unless…. he is the murderer….
