She: I want to meet your ex-girlfriend.

He: What an odd thought! Why?

She: She’s your past and that’s part of you. Getting to know you includes meeting your past.

It’s to know why you like me. If she’s shy, I’ll know its my personality. If she’s sweet, its my attitude.

“CRAP” he was thinking.

That’s her.

That’s her??? Your ex-girlfriend is gorgeous.

Not the way you are.

Right….you didn’t tell me she was so tall.

How does it matter…I think you are my perfect woman

Shorter than you, you mean?

Quiet now…here she comes

Pretty face, status symbol, too much attention. It must have been about his ego, then.

XX1: I’m glad to meet you!

XX2: Me too! I’ve been hearing so much about you!

XX1: We must talk about books. He said you have a collection!

XX2: I’ve got a book I hope you’ll like.

She’s just like me. Hmm…he’ll be a frequent furniture re-arranger. The same stuff but with a new look.

Hi, I’m disappointed you didn’t come for the engagement. We were friends after all. You could’ve left work early. Anyway, here’re the photographs. Wish you were a part of them.

Photogenic me? But I don’t have that complexion, do I? You always had a thing for fair skin. Congratulations Mr.Fair & Lovely.

She stubbed out the cigarette butt and gazed out of the window, running through the list in her mind. An organized mind aids good decisions.

Ex-girlfriends

The Head girl
The Beauty Queen
The Campus Rebel
The Business whiz-kid
The Journalist
The ex-girlfriend of his nemesis
The Former Colleague

A collector of alpha females.

Confusing advice

The most unemotional person I ever knew said

Being emotional may be the most practical thing that you can do.

I never figured that out. Then again, he also said

You shouldn’t believe a single thing I say. Always assume I’m not serious.

How about that statement? Does it count or is it an axiom?

A crush

He passes her; she flashes an almost-not-there glance

Like she’s thinking deeply, unaware of staring

He watches her surreptitiously….hoping she won’t notice. Hoping she will.

She does. That’s why she doesn’t turn around and smile. Perhaps she will.

She doesn’t ponder over how silly she’s being.

Crushes are to be enjoyed, not agonized over.

Random XXFactor 55s

Men like teaching me stuff,
Educating me on how it all is
Sometimes things I already know
Occasionally better than them.

You never told me that!!

You never asked, dearie. And believe it or not, I am a good listener.

The odd thing is, no man likes hearing that. But they do enjoy being heard.

It’s a matter of focus, not straightforwardness
Having started on one thing,
It probably feels like a waste to not complete it

Maybe they wish the ‘Pause’ button worked in real life too
But instead, find that
Channel-surfing eventually leads back to the same place
With the shows still on
And just a different face

Actually I like most men
And care not a whit for women

But I respect women
Mostly a lot
For very little
And am scornful of men
A lot
For very little

I think men are okay, if you don’t let yourself feel too much
And women are spectacular if you don’t think at all.
