That Slight Feeling of Deflation

So, things have been pretty rough for me and my friend these past few weeks, over a dispute about money.  I finally got to talk to her about things, and we've been doing great.  That was the best of it.  Well, I take it back; it was also nice to find out she was friends with one of my classmates.  And the three of us really get along great.

I guess it was also nice getting to try Hannibal Lecter's favorite wine: Chiatini, and finding that I really liked it (even though it is a VERY dry red).  The issue arose when I realized that my bubbly classmate really likes the scruffy short boy I was interested in...and he really likes her, too.

I guess what this whole thing forced me to realize is this: if a guy likes you enough, he's going to make a move.  And obviously, just being nice doesn't equate to "I like you".  It's probably more in the vein of "I want to be friends" or even "I want you to go away and leave me alone."  If a guy is interested, he's not going to be totally reserved and whatnot.  This isn't Victorian England.  This was a bit of a blow to me because I realized that I am not exactly popular with the guys in any way, no matter how much I might want to convince myself.  As a result, I drank a lot of Chianti.  I'm sure I'll be feeling it in the morning.


  1. Emmy, there's a lot of guys out there that will like you... You seem to focus your sights on one guy at a time. I would suggest that maybe you should also be a little less reserved? Oh and stop picking men that are arseholes, you tend to have a preference for that sort of chap :P

  2. Hi, new follower here :) I'm also studying English so I'm *loving* having stumbled onto your blog. It's a good mix of literature and 'real life' stories.

    I'm sorry you feel that way :( But you know, someone you aren't even aware of could be an admirer. Don't take yourself granted, that's all, despite whether guys are running after you or not.

    I've been deflating recently too - in the area of friends. Some wallowing in self-pity's called for - or Chianti, as the case may be ;) but afterwards, chin up!

  3. I know, girlie. I know. :(

  4. Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out.

    Please let me know where you got your design.

  5. Anonymous,

    My blog is based off of an old Blogger template. I made some slight tweeks to it myself, but this is basically an old Blogger template. I don't know if you can still find it online anymore...sorry!
