he’s the only one
around here I had a
few conversations with
he knows my name
I don’t know his
for the best
I know myself
one thing will lead
and that’s that
I have the tendency
not to get attached
but they do
I’m at my point in life
I don’t need that
it doesn’t mean
How do I tell if someone is just being friendly or something else I can’t another word for besides ‘weird’?
“Hi, how are you?” Okay, so that’s what everyone says. Nothing out of the ordinary.
“What are you doing this weekend?” Nothing spectacular. Only a conversation starter.
“What about this weather?” Yeah, it’s hot out. “I can stand heat, not the cold.” Now I’m getting bored… any reason to talk to me, right? I might be blonde but I’m not stupid.
“Hi…” looks up and down at you.
Maybe it’s my imagination. Wait, why is he watching me? How did he know I went upstairs. Is he following me or watching me on camera? Probably.
Am I in trouble? No. Do I have a creeper on my back? Yes. Let me think… nope.
I don’t do games with men. I played games with men that didn’t follow me around and upfront told me what they wanted. I mean I like some older men but not old enough to be my father, c’mon.
