Tonight’s topic: GUYS/I DON’T HANG OUT WITH ANYONE MY AGE OUTSIDE OF CLASS AT SCHOOL AND IT SUCKS.
A lot of them are dumb. Meaning the ones I like don’t like me back and the ones who like me are all weird, creepy or old. Or all three.
Seriously, though. The last three guys who have expressed interest in me have fallen into at least one of the above categories.
For instance: 25 year old who, for the past year or so has made it very clear that he has feelings for me. Many reasons why that would never happen other than the fact that five years age difference is a bit much for me.
31 year old in one of my English classes last year who pretty much creeped me out and texted me all the time and got all butthurt when I didn’t tell him I was in the city he lived in (dude, you’re 30. We’re not even friends. I didn’t want you to come see me anyway) and only got the point when I very obviously avoided him (saw him walking in the parking lot towards me and turned around immediately, ignoring him when he called my name) at the end of the year. Also, he has three kids.
27 year old who would NOT stop talking to me in bio last semester and proceeded to, completely out of the blue, tell me “You’re awesome. No matter what your boyfriend says, you’re awesome.” What boyfriend? And what have I done to deserve such high praise from you? Tell you the date? Sorry, you’re creepy and annoying and old and I’m not interested.
And the boys my age who I think are cool and would be interested in show no interest. It kinda sucks.
I just feel like I’m always surrounded by older people and those are the only people who care about me. The only person I actually hang out with at school is my 34 year old ex-roommate (story: freshman year, first year in the dorm, my roommate with this 32 year-old woman. She was really nice and cool so we would eat in the cafeteria together all the time. Cause, you know, you kind of have to be friends with your roommate). The thing is, people don’t seem all that interested to talk to someone who hangs out with an obviously much older person all the time. And I know that some people recognize me and think of me as the girl that hangs out with her “mom.” She’s not my mom! She’s just older! This random dude actually came up to me last semester and said “Hey, who’s that lady you’re always walking around with? I see ya’ll all the time and I’m like ‘is that her mom? that’s… cool.’” NO, bro. I do not hang out with my mom on campus.
And then in my current biology class, this older lady sits next to me and always talks to me and it’s like I just can’t get away from them! People my age just don’t want to talk to me! Only the significantly older ones do!
And this post just became about something more than just my nonexistent love life and creepy old dude admirers.
