frakin’ ides!

Read from the top down. I’d basically behave like a wild dog, foregoing all tact and diplomacy when dealing with unwanted affections if not for the influence of the boy-bestie.

Subject: Can U Shoot Me Please

No, but really, I’m asking nicely. Since, I assume, that you won’t (height of rudeness), could you maybe just tell me how I extricate myself from a crush? Specifically, how do I do so w/o being too mean, or better yet w/o being mean at all.

He likes you and you don’t like him?  There are worse things than a boy liking you.

Precisely, and on my side it’s not even a fraction of a smidge of a hint of a degree and I am so irritated by him puppy-dogging that in my head he’s a borderline stalker. Pretty sure in the real world, where I don’t live, only visit, he’s just being persistent and nowhere close to stalker-y. To Clarify: being among the crushed on is not why I want you to shoot me (which, btw, I still think is a really good idea and the options still on the table), but if I’m not being put out of my workday misery I’d feel its only fair I get put out of being annoyingly-crushed-on misery. Ughhhhhh.

You could tell him you are dating someone else. That’s a good way. Or if he will know that you aren’t tell him you are really excited about a guy you just met, that should help.

I tried the latter once, when it was briefly true (hard to get excited when you’re not easily impressed & tend to bore quickly) but it seemed to make things worse. Like he showed up EVERYWHERE I went. Stupid facebook. Hmmm. I’ll try the former,  though I generally won’t tell even the palest of white lies for reasons I cannot express – that’s just been my way as far back as anyone can remember. The alternative: me saying “Just PLEASE fuck off, already, k?” seems much worse however.
*Sigh…. wish we could all wish away unwanted interest.

Trust me, you could have much worse problems then a dude who likes you.

Could be much, much, much worse, fo’ sho’ & knock wood. That said, while I’m not saying I shouldn’t be flattered, bear in mind I dated hardcore for 8 months following Lord Voldemort in an effort to avoid Voldy-repeat and I am damn well exhausted.  Dig?  So, unless dude can rip the space-time continuum apart in a manner that looks, feels, sounds, smells and tastes mad-pretty to me while cubing the time i get in a day, please let me be for a spell.  Please.  Even with all that alchemy and arcane magic, their chances are slim to none. Not cause I think I’m so special, mind you. Nope, I’m just so, so, sooooo tired.  Plus I kinda feel like I’m living in still water of late and I work a 2+ asst desk all by myself because my boss, god bless him, doesn’t “trust” a 2nd asst. All of which makes me think any guy interested is maybe also mildly concussed, cause I am nothing like my usual sparkly and shiny right now… so yes, I reserve the right to dismiss w/o prejudice.

Love & Poptarts! Cheerios, Ses.

Haha. Ok, maybe just ignore him. Or give the same response every time “sorry, too busy” or “sorry, have to go to a show”. I’m guessing after the 8th time he may get it.

6:52 PM – FB Blocking: too much?

6:53 PM – Yes.

6:54 PM – Le sigh. tks, CK
