I haven’t given much thought about “the game…” until last night. What happened? Last night I went to an event where there just so happened to be attractive people and I was flirting with them?!? I write the statement with a question market because it was a casual-business event so my intention came from a place of business and nothing else.
However, one of my friends kept insisting, “she was into you man. She wants you man. She is cute.” First, I think my friend was over-exaggerating. Being overly friendly, flirty, touchy, and happy at a casual-business event means nothing. Everyone is there to network, to learn, and to give insight. Therefore, EVERYONE who is ANYONE is supposed to be friendly, flirty, touchy, and happy to talk to each other.
Though I thought nothing of these “girls” & “game..” my friend’s comments did start a nagging thought in my brain. I began to think of my ex-girlfriend.
And, I realized I’m not ready to jump into the “the game.”
I’m not ready to date
I’m not ready to be in another relationship
I’m not ready to ask for anyone’s number
I’m not ready to actively search for someone else, kiss someone else, or even aggressively pursue anyone else. Yes, I will still flirt when the opportunity presents itself. I’m not going to sit idle if an attractive person walks into my path. I’m just not going to try to do anything further because… well… I’m not ready.
