Does the wrong use of “you’re” bother anyone else? It is a good sentiment, just a failed execution.
Am I really only attractive to gay men? Literally the first thing said to me by our host at work, after I said hi, was “Are you still straight?” And when I replied that yes I am still straight, he sounded so defeated, even though it shouldn’t have been a surprise. Not that I dislike the interest, but I just can’t return the feelings.
This is not the first time either. A previous host, after many a drink, confessed that he had a crush on me. One server would actively hit on anyone that had something wagging between their legs. A friend in high school hit on me whenever they saw me.
If I could get half that much interest from those of the female persuasion, maybe I wouldn’t be as dismayed with my body image as I am. I get reassurance from friends and girls who are not single, which honestly doesn’t help at all. They say all these things about how I’m a rather attractive guy. Yet, I sit here alone, drinking alone, thinking about how I’m alone despite all their reassurances.
Get to sit alone by the fire for my 4th of July. Just like every other day of the year.
