Where are they then??
I met someone the other day and we hit it off. Couldn't stop starring into those gorgeous eyes of theirs.. Gosh! If could drown, my lungs would be full water by now.. Anyway, we had a blast. We just sat down at some restaurant in town and sipped on some hot water with honey and some lemon wedges as we got to know each other.. They're doing a B.A course in some private university in Limuru and are rather interesting to chat with. We laughed a little, okay, a lot, and enjoyed each others company while it lasted.. I walked them down to their bus stop, bid them fair well and met up with a few of my friends.. I couldn't stop thinking about them all night but things changed, okay my perception changed..
When I go out with someone, I think of it as a long term deal if not, what am I doing it for? Basically they went through my 'soul mate' criteria and didn't quite make it to the end.. Who am I kidding, they where down and out within a few seconds..
See what I mean by having high standards??
This isn't the first time I thought I'd met the one and ended up stepping back and letting the distance kinda nudge them in the right direction which is usually away from me. It doesn't work quite well sometimes but it's better than looking someone in the face and going, "Honey, it's not, it's me.. I just don't know what I want right now.. I have to let you go" .. Didn't work quite well the last time I used it.
Before all this happens my mind goes round in circles..
Are they the one?
Are perfect for me?
Will I lose interest(almost always do)?
Can I date them?
No, they're too fat...
No, they're too butch.. LOL
No, they're too girly...
No, they're too reserved...
No, they just ain't my type... (what's my type anyway?? o_O)
No, they're too old... (I should keep that one... just saying.. )
No, they remind me too much of my ex... (this one too... there's a reason it didn't work out.. )
No, they live too far.... (so much for love having no boundaries... convenience holds power overall...)
Wait ! Maybe I'm too picky or just plain vain........................
*pauses and thinks*
Reminds me of the phone conversation I had with my da just last week, went something like this..
"So, when am I seeing your girlfriend?"
"Ehm! I haven't found one yet"
"Maybe you should lower your standards a bit"
"I could get you one?"
"Good luck with that"
Makes me wonder if something not wired straight somewhere in here..
I've always felt like I'm the only one blindly manoeuvring through life when everyone else has got a map and a flash light.. I mean really, I feel like I don't know what I'm doing and no one else feels this way... Even basic instincts feel wrong....
Or am I over-thinking it?
Don't think so..........................
I can't even have a functional relationship with another human being....................
So, the basic fabric of my existence is flawed and my social skills down right impaired..
