1. I’ve always been told that I am cynical and negative.
But one time, a girl I was dating said otherwise.
I told her this, and she shrugged. Without realizing how much it meant to me, she said:
“I never thought that about you. I just thought, you know. You know people can do better, so you expect them to not be shitty. And you let them know when they suck. I never saw you as negative at all.”
This is essentially the only time in my life someone verbalized how I feel and it’s stuck with me ever since.
2. Was at Starbucks and the attractive barista asked for my name to put on the cup. I told her, but when I got my cup it said “handsome guy.” Made my week.
3. I’m a little self-conscious of my laugh because it literally sounds like a dying hyena, and I’ve had a couple girls tell me “OMG I love your laugh” and “you have the best laugh,” that always puts a smile on my face thinking about that.
