I got together with my father and my uncle yesterday. I mentioned Megan to them. Knowing my previous relationships, and how well they've gone, and why, dad said "Well, don't act desperate. Play hard to get every now and then too." My response was, "Fricking games!" Dad said, "That's right!"
I love games. I play games almost every single day of my life. But, not in relationships! Which, you know, is probably why I've been so unsuccessful at them. So, sue me, I'm a big believer in always being honest. I hate keeping secrets, as I think I've mentioned a few times before now. Can someone please tell me why these games are so necessary? If I'm attracted to someone, and they're attracted to me...Why can't we just admit that to each other, and move on from there? Why play this coy game of "Does she? Doesn't she?" All this does is tie my stomach into knots, which isn't exciting to me...just nauseous.
This is frustrating.
But, this seems to be the system that I'm stuck in, so I'll play the game as best as I can. And, more likely than not, I'll lose, because I think the rules are stupid.
