“What is it about me that scares girls off?”
I suddenly asked a friend the other day;
I don’t think he expected a such a question
Our conversations just don’t go that way.
I am not sure what made me think of it;
It was like something out of the blue.
I suddenly thought that I may be scary,
And that there may be something I can do.
He said I’m too pensive in discussion,
Rather that simply paying attention.
I almost dismissed his comments,
But realized their truth upon inspection.
Then he decided to ask his wife.
She said it may simply not be true,
But if you look at the women around me,
You’d draw the same verdict I do.
That is not to say I don’t have friends.
There I believe I am status quo,
But when I go and try for something more,
I seem to always to get a “no”.
This fact was starting to bother me,
Almost to the point of desperation.
I lost sight of the real situation,
And that it is cause for celebration,
I should be thankful for my female friends,
And all the times where we have fun.
And instead of searching for a girlfriend,
Simply realize that I just don’t need one.
