I guess I missed the memo; apparently love is in the air. Well, potential love. Now I'm no pro with the love advice (I mean, I am! I mean - WHGT! JGTH! YES I'M AWESOME!) but I still would like to chime in a few comments and maybe some advice.
I'm sorry, I do not buy this idea that love is a game to be played. Both guys and girls seem to rack their brains trying to figure out what that “one” person is thinking, analyzing and experimenting on all of their smallest nuances. For a long time. The game, I guess, consists of sending out a small signal, then repeating the analyzing and experimenting step all over again. Repeat ad infinitum. Whatever happened to... open communication?
If you are interested in someone, are not sure if they're interested in you, and are having a hard time “moving on” - why not talk to them? Seriously, you can talk with them and find out, or play games for an indefinite amount of time and most likely make things harder for yourself.
“But then that might make things awkward between us, what about our friendship?”
How strong is your friendship if you cannot communicate your feelings without concern over losing them as a friend? I mean, if the friendship is that unstable, are you seriously considering this person for dating? I have not had a friendship “go bad” because I expressed an interest - and I've done it a couple times (it wasn't mutual, but they were probably just in denial, heh heh). Sure, it's not the greatest feeling in the world when you find out there's nothing there, but at least you know and can move on with life instead of wasting so much time playing games. Life is short and there is much to be done - so why get bogged down in games?
This has been a generic, game-free post. It's not directed at anyone in specific. :-]
