Hey girl :D Talk to me…what’s up? :D
He waited until the train was in motion to make his move—a true sign of someone who knows how to make the environment work to their advantage. Then he leaned forward. “Hi.” “How you doing?” “What are you reading?” “What’s your name?” “I really like your hair.” “That’s a really nice skirt.” “You must work out.”
It was painful to watch. She clearly wanted nothing to do with him, and he clearly wasn’t going to take the hint. Her rebukes got firmer. “I’d like to read my book.” And he pulled out the social pressure. “Hey, I’m just asking you a question. You don’t have to be so rude.” She started to look around for outs. Her head swiveled from one exit to another.
The thing was, I had already heard this story, many many times. I knew how it would play out. I knew all the tropes. I probably could have quoted the lines before they said them. I wanted a new narrative. Time to mix it up.
So I moved seats until I was sitting behind him. I leaned forward with my head on the back of his seat.
"Hi," I said with a little smile.
He looked at me like I was a little crazy—which isn’t exactly untrue—and turned back to her.
"How are you doing?" I asked.
"I’m fine," he said flatly without ever looking back.
"I really like your hair," I said. “It looks soft."
That’s about when it got…..weird.
He sort of half turned and glared back me, and I could tell I was pissing him off. His eyes told me to back the hell away, and his lips were pressed together tightly enough to drain the color from them completely.
But no good story ever ends with the conflict just defusing. He started to turn back to her.
"Wait, don’t be like that," I said. “Lemmie just ask you one question…"
"What!" he said in that you-have-clearly-gone-too-far voice that is part of the freshmen year finals at the school of machismo.
And I’m not exactly a hundred percent sure why I didn’t call it a day at that point, but…..maybe I just love turning the screw to see what happens. I gave him the bedroomy-est eyes I could muster. “What’s your name?”
Right now I’m sitting here typing out this story, and I’m still not entirely sure why I’m not nursing a fat lip or a black eye. Because that obviously made him so mad that I still am not sure why it didn’t come to blows. There are cliches about eyes flaring and rage behind someones eyes and shit like that that are so overdone. But it really does look like that. When someone gets violent, their eyes just kind of “pop” with intention—pupils dilate, eyelids widen. And his did. Even sitting down he was clearly bigger than me and I was pretty sure he was kind of muscular too, so at that moment I was figuring I was probably going to need an ice pack and sympathy sex from my girlfriend by day’s end.
"DUDE," he shouted. “I’M NOT GAY."
That’s when I dropped the bedroom eyes and switched to a normal voice. “Oh well I could see not being interested didn’t matter to you when you were hitting on her, so I just thought that’s how you rolled.”
never hit that reblog so fast in my life.
Mere - Just adding - if this is a true story, you are my hero! Seriously. If guys could just do this - point out to other guys in ways they can’t laugh off, how what they’re doing isn’t acceptable - then maybe things will change.
We got us a real life Steve Rogers here.
Hey hun. :* Thank you so much :**** I make my own, and I change it every few weeks… but what I hold as a constant is cardio (90% of the time it’s running or walking or skipping)….and the variables …I usually decide on a certain part of the body I want to work on most, and I decide a ”sub” part… let me explain it to ya… I do like 30-40 min. of cardio, then a 20 min. ”main” body part I want to work on (like for example, butt or legs), and after the ”main” I go for the one I want to just keep at a certain condition aka the ”sub”(example, abs)…. and I try for my training to never go over an hour because of my busy schedule, and because I want to have a nice and healthy body, and most importantly not to over do my training. Btw, I do this 3-5 times a week, to lose a pound a week, 5-6 to lose 2 pounds a week, and 1-2 times to maintain. ;) kisses. <3
I love you too anon. :D
You can’t…. Insanely? In a few times? I don’t even wanna discuss this again…
Thank YOU, love.
Found it, but it got no attention what-so-ever, and it helped me, so I tried to at least make it go viral, because it’s important and the person who did make it, made it for the same reason I posted it. We wanted to help, we wanted for those in need to know that there are others like them, and that others were in the same situation as them, and that there are others who understand them, and are there for them.
Anytime you need anything… just msg me <3 Be safe, and be happy. Love ya <3
Then you must be looking at life the wrong way. But I understand the way you think. I decided to change, and had to change myself from the roots….and it wasn’t easy, sometimes it was pure torture, but it was a better kind of torture, because I had my own back, I wasn’t stabbing them…there still are days that I think I’m slipping …but I get back on my feet, dust off and try again.
