my favorite sport is figuring out which girls from my school are gay
Yesterday when I was walking through the mall, rushing through the crowds towards hot topic to pick up my girlfriend from work, I had an experience. Unfortunately, I’m very very used to getting stared at and cat called when I’m at the mall. It has happened so often for so many years that I mostly just brush it off, unless it calls for greater action (gotta pick your battles).
Well yesterday I had a very different experience. As I was rushing through the mall, I was approached by a young man. He was dressed very nice in a button up dress shirt and looked very clean. He came up behind me and said
“Excuse me, but I just have to tell you that I think you are very pretty and I would like to give you my number so that I can take you out and make you very happy.”
Now of course my response was “that’s sweet but I’m going to have to decline.
“You have a boyfriend?”
“No actually I have a girlfriend, and I’m gonna have to go. I’m sorry I don’t play for your team!”
I rushed off into hot topic and only looked back long enough to see his draw drop to the floor and his buddy grab his shoulder in condolence. I actually kinda felt bad for the poor boy!
I was in a hurry so I didn’t really have time to say anything else to him but I wish I had. I wanted to tell him that it was very flattering and sweet of him to be so kind in approaching me. All I’m used to is derogatory and degrading comments and stares when they think I can’t see or hear. And he didn’t do that. I wanted to tell him to keep on doing that, being sweet and such. It goes a long way. Even I was taken aback by it and flattered actually. I’m sure had I been a straight, single girl, he would have had a shot because of it. I just hope there are more young gentlemen out there like that because I was starting to lose hope in humanity.
if i had a dollar for every time an adult asked me about college then i’d have enough money to pay for college
