Why Do Fools Fall in Love, AKA the Josie Gellar Story
I mean, I know that this is a huge cliche--falling for a friend, whining about it, worrying about whether it will affect the friendship, blah blah blah. I recently found myself in the unfortunate position of counselling a friend in a similar situation. She ended up hooking up with one of her best friends, he subsequently treating her like crap, oldest story in the world. I just wanted to shake her every time she started talking to me about it--she was being so deliberately blind about what an asshole he was being.
Still, I can't help it. I am becoming the cliche. And I think this is going to have a cliched ending as well. Not the best friends realize their true feelings, ride off into the sunset cliche. No, I mean the girl falls for a friend who isn't interested in her, only to end up with her heart broken and the friendship over because he can't deal with the awkward of it all. That cliche.
I've just never elicited much a of response from guys. I don't say that in a self-pitying way. Well, maybe a little bit, but mostly it's just stating the truth. I mean, I'm pretty, I suppose. I'm tall and curvy and I've got great breasts. I'm very smart, and I can be funny, and I'm very sweet. There seems to be nothing wrong with this picture, right? I think I just give off some sort of a vibe, sort of a "stay away" type of thing. Or maybe I'm just lacking that va-va-voom factor that make some girls hot and some girls just "pretty." Or hell, maybe I'm just lacking some self-confidence. But whatever it is, it's how I've made it to the age of 19 and never been kissed.
Yes, folks, that's right. My horrible secret is out. I have never been kissed. I am Drew Barrymore in that terrible movie. I hate that movie, because she gets to kiss Michael Vartan in the end. LIFE DOESN'T WORK OUT THAT WAY FOR ME! I mean, I've had Spin-the-bottle kisses and even stage kisses, but nothing that I think really counts as my first kiss.
And the thing is, I'm not what you would traditionally think of as a late-bloomer. I mean, I'm fairly gorgeous, and have been since high school. It's just never happened for me somehow. Watching The 40-Year-Old Virgin, I had a terrible vision of my future.
Well, this started out as one thing and turned into a monologue on how pathetic my life is. Sorry about that.
