Boy meets girl.
Girl says she is single.
Girl is a lie.
Whenever you meet someone, and you seem to hit it off, always remember that you’re not the only one. There is someone else in the picture. If there isn’t someone else in the picture, there better be a good reason why that person doesn’t have anyone pursuing them… either that or you holla’d at a boogerwolf.
Who exactly is in the picture? Glad you asked:
The Ex – Maybe he or she is getting over a breakup, but that ex is still in the picture in some way.
The Boo – I hate this term by the way, but a lot of females I’ve run into like to use this term as the 2009-2010 version of someone who isn’t necessarily their boyfriend, but they’re still dating. Any heterosexual guy doesn’t use this term by the way. Women say boo. Men say jump-off.
The Boyfriend/Girlfriend – Speaks for itself. And just because they’re going through a “rough patch,” doesn’t negate the fact that they have a s/o.
The Pursuer/Friend – This holds true for women more so. Every woman has at least one man who is pursuing her at all times. She just got off the phone with him… and gave you her number an hour later. Nothing wrong with that. Just know that he’s there. I would also like to add that 99% of men in the infamous friend zone started out as pursuers.
So what am I saying? At any given time, you are in competition with at least one other person. You start out as an option hoping to get chosen.
To the readers out there, are you aware that you’re not the only one? Are you comfortable with that fact? Are you willing to compete?
