That One Stung A Little


Edvard Munch

It was a funny, but not so funny moment.

This guy that I talk to on the train platform a few times a week asked me out on a date.

This is what he said to me: he likes talking to me, he enjoys seeing me and sometimes it feels like that even if his day was full of negative people he can count on me to cheer him up.

Then he said, he hoped he wasn’t putting me on the spot and that he  had been going back and forth on asking me out and today it just popped out.

Before I could answer he says, ” it’s funny but I always enjoy talking to you but all of the sudden I thought I should ask you out. You kind of crept up on me.”

I let that sink in for a  moment. He just said I crept up on him- which makes me a creep I guess.

I know that dude, I thought. I’m a creep and it’s not the first time I’ve been called a creep and it won’t be the last time. Also, its no fun to know you’re being asked out when  it sounds like the person doing the asking doesn’t  really care if I say yes or no.

So I smiled like I always do and I said I was involved with someone  but thank you for the invitation.

Then the train showed up and I crept up the stairs one by one the way us creeps do.

  1. This did make me laugh but not in a creepy way. That is a weird thing to say to someone especially when they crept up on you 😂 Thanks for joining in Anita 🙂 🙂
