“Linkin Park and one drink too many…”
A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away…. or rather, a computer screen far far away…
Its not what you might think when you hear the title. Actually…it is.
I met this girl online through a site called badoo. You see, Badoo is known in many different countries, not just America.
On badoo, you can set up your profile without having to pay. Now, when the aspect of paying comes up, its for the extra things that help bring more attention to you. See they have this thing called spotlight, its where you pay to put your profile pic on the top of the website that gives you a little time for everyone see you and possibly click on you. You can also activate what they call superpowers, which give a good number of extra stuff you can do. Its a big unnecessary move towards meeting people. I understand the whole “middle man” idea behind it, and they deserve money for their work…but there are other methods to doing this that are free.
I met this girl from Washington state who was very very very cute! At this point in my life, I can honestly say that I do not have a lot of value in myself…and thus I do not have much interest in those with a lot of value themselves (even though I really should…).
I have never met a girl like this before, the kind that…well, I will get to that.
So I send her a message, and luckily she responds to it! I am pretty psyched to have such a pretty girl respond to me. Our conversation started out pretty mild, nothing out of the ordinary and no red flags.
We had one nice thing in common, which was that we both liked Linkin Park. Now, this was during a time that I was looking to go to a Linkin park concert later that year, so it came up in the conversation. We had a good talk about all of our interests, really, but this one was what made her ask a certain question.
We both live too far from one another to travel back and forth to date, and neither of us were interested in living in each others state..so this wasn’t really going anywhere. But it was nice to talk about our stories and have someone just listen and care a lil.
This is where alcohol comes in for a surprise visit.
Later that night told me she had recently broke up with her boyfriend…so really, shes hurt and feeling rejected by somebody that she loved (as she is telling me). Then she says that she wasn’t feeling too happy, and wanted to have something to drink. Said that she was a little tipsy.. and hopes that I won’t think too less of her.
What am I to say… cuz I really don’t know..
I try to make my new pen pal feel better. Then she starts telling me about how she thinks I would make a good boyfriend and it is a shame that I live so far away…
At this point, I think she wants to see if I would come by.
I thought about this, really gave it consideration, tried to see it from her side, checked out what the INTERWEBZ had to say about this “Washington” place…and I can definitely say that that was a lie. I had no interest, no thought, no nada on moving… I was there just comforting someone, and I knew that none of this was really going to be helpful.
She seemed like she was too focused on herself. Even on her facebook, she would post up a little hate, others would try to calm her down…
It was a bullet that I was glad I dodged..
So, after a while, I saw her as the type to want attention and I was tired of wanting to give any. Its just that, to me, I like to help others…but in a situation like this it seemed like thats all that was happening. Thats not what a relationship is about…thats not what a friendship is about…theres give and take. This became too one sided. She was more interested in her own story and how negative things were, how people view it, and that maybe this was not a good time to be interacting with this girl.
Me, personally, I like to be positive and happy! Though you may not think that when I say I listened to Linkin Park lol though that have become a lot happier in their music as of late haha.
