You’re fine. Really.

Except maybe at times when…

πŸ™„ You’re single.
How to pursue your interests without being labeled a ‘creep?

πŸ™„ You have growing affections for someone you kinda rely on.
You don’t want to screw it up.

πŸ™„ She likes to talk. You’re a good listener. Perfect… until it’s not.
How to stop the blame game? Shrug it off and walk away? Double-down?
Is there any other way?

πŸ™„ She said she loved you “just the way you are.”
Was she lying? What changed?
Her agenda to “help you learn and grow” feels invasive.

πŸ™„ Your breath stops. She’s expecting you to say something.
How long has she been staring?
How to minimize collateral damage? Aah! What to do???

Rinse and repeat: πŸ™„ You’re single…


Is This You?

You’re smart:

πŸ’‘ you like to figure stuff out for yourself in ways that save face.
πŸ’‘ you value the scientific method: observe, hypothesize, test, iterate.
πŸ’‘ you prefer to “see it to believe it” and hate being nagged/coaxed/told what to do.

We’ll get along great if

πŸ˜‰ you’re agnostic, iconoclastic, or just not big on authority figures.
πŸ˜‰ you’re understated… technical… misunderstood.
πŸ˜‰ you have trouble striking up mutually engaging conversations,
either ’cause you you feel dull by comparison, or you’ve been told you’re “too much.”

Of course, you’re welcome to disagree with my point of view.
