Last week I was chatting with a friend of mine and he made a comment that really stuck with me. I asked him why he was hanging out and talking with me when the girl he really likes was on the other side of the room. He said "because you're the comfortable girl."
Exsqueeze me?! Please explain.
"It's just that you're easy to talk to and I can be myself and be normal around you...and not have to worry about impressing you. You make me comfortable."
Ohhhh how many times I have heard this. And every time it drives me crazy. I told him it makes me uncomfortable and that I don't like having that role. He didn't seem to understand. In fact, he thought that by telling me I was his comfortable girl that he was giving me a compliment.
I don't know where I'm going with this...it's just been on my mind a lot this week. The blog seemed like a good place to unload it. That's all. Carry on.
