I’ve spent many nights out staring at the back of some guy’s head while he flirts with my friend. I’ve had to fend off the creepy middle-aged men who try to touch me and get too aggressive. I’ve been told what could make me prettier by more people than I care to give credit to and I’ve gotten my hopes up and been disappointed plenty — but, I’ve also tried.
Unless you’re doing this because you eventually want to send me an “in a relationship” request, don’t friend me. I’ve had this happen recently, more than once, and I initially thought “that’s a sign, right? He wants to get to know me better.”
