A girl is after my male friend. He is not really into her, he’s undecided. “Surely it would be unfair to just hook up for sex, because she has actual feelings? Or should I just carpe diem? She’s invited me to her place once again, I’m out of excuses to refuse? What should I do?” — he’s been telling me about this girl for two weeks now.
Today I told him, “Look, one thing you can do to take some of the pressure off is NOT talk so much about it to me and our mutual friends, because you get anxious, and if you hook up with her, NOT tell us when it happens. So, if things don’t work, nobody will know except the two of you; less pressure for both”.
“Wow. Great idea! You’re always so smart!”
No, I’m not smart. it’s just that if I received a message like “Hey, I’m going to the girl tonight” I would drown in my own tears. You stupid, blind manchild. I AM the one who LOVES you. Stupid.
