No Luck.

"Patience is the art of concealing your impatience."
~Guy Kawasaki

Dear Beth and everyone else who cares,

Remember how I spontaneously sent a message to a cute boy on FB asking him to ask me out? Well, I was trying to wait a few days to see if the man would message me back, so I could have something fun to share. No such luck. Seriously? Seriously. Wow. Is he really going to ignore me? It doesn't seem right to go around winking at a girl one night and then completely ignore and reject her the next. But I guess you can. And he did. And yes, I've checked and he has certainly been on FB. No doubt about that. Sad. He must hate me. haha :) Wow. Oh well, at least now I know.

I'll try to only be sad for a minute. (Long enough to take a self portrait in the mirror.)

Because really... what can you do?

As my mom always says, "It's all for the good." Meaning, I don't want to be with someone who doesn't want to be with me. So, like I said, at least I know now. No regrets, right?

Well, my friends, I love you and I know you love me (even if the man doesn't), and that's what counts right? I'm all about the love.

P.S. I reserve the right to change my mind about him if he does work up the guts (and maturity) to respond.
P.P.S. Should I say anything else to him? Should I retract the email? Or when I see him next, do I bring it up? I mean, I'd still like to have a friend in him, if not a date. What do you think?
P.P.P.S. Don't judge me for my self portrait sessions in the mirror or the funky coloring experiments with said self portraits. It's entertaining.

I LOVE that I made your blog.
As for the boy, what a moron. I mean really? I swear they never grow up and learn how to have adult relationships. (Except Geoff, of course:)) Now, if he does email you back, or communicate in some form, then we can stop hating him and love him again. Face it-- our hearts can be as fickle as theirs.
BTW-- your self pics are cute! You should send them to him so he knows what he is missing out on.

YOU are adorable. I love that you did that. And I love that you take adorable pictures. You are classic Hollywood. And I love how you accept how most men have artless and inept relationship skills. You can't hate them all because, after all, we all kind of want one of our own.

But they do evolve. Either this one will or you'll find another. If it were me, I'd take a needs-based approach. If it comes up fine. If not, you have your answer regardless. And if you want to address it for your own reasons, feel free. It was an innocent enough question, how harmful could it be either which way?
