Hot Guy

Dear Friend,

I’ve dated a lot of people but you were by far one of the hottest – and frankly my longest relationship. A friend and I were having coffee when we started talking about relationships. I mentioned having met you through mutual friends when she asked me what you looked like and frankly it wasn’t very difficult for me to describe; you were blessed with the genes of a Greek God.

She smiled at me with a quizzical look in her eye. “Tell me more” she said.  I described you easily: deep brown eyes that you could get lost in, olive skin, a chiseled jaw and abs of fucking steel. You wore yourself well and had a smile that could absolutely kill if you got too close. You shared my love for coffee, hard liquor, working out, and smart-ass remarks.

Yet, with all that beauty, there was nothing more. You were the quiet-type but not in that mysterious stoic kinda way. It was more like, ‘I have nothing to say at all past simple few word responses’. Honestly, I grew bored of you quite easily. There was no real substance beyond physical attraction and our relationship lacked the intellectual and meaningful conversations that I wanted. Maybe in a different world we could have dated longer.

After a while, our schedules conflicted; we didn’t have time to make it work. But, I’m glad we ended on good terms. I’m glad that we went our separate ways mutually. And for what it’s worth, I hope you’re happy in your life, with whatever you are doing and whoever you are with.

The Girl Next Door


20 people

I met you and here’s what I have to say

  1. I like your sense of style.
  2. You come across as snob-ish sometimes.
  3. I like that you’re open to new ideas and experiences.
  4. Our conversations were both engaging and entertaining.
  5. Keep on smiling, you have a beautiful smile.
  6. You’re freken adorable!
  7. Don’t ever change.
  8. You’re weird, but I like you.
  9. We should hang out more.
  10. You were definitely the class clown, and I’m okay with that.
  11. I wish I had the change to get to know you more.
  12. Smart-ass.
  13. Those looks we shared when the class was just too much were epic.
  14. You’re smarter than you let on.
  15. You’re a cool girl and all but something about you rubbed me the wrong way.
  16. Do you have a problem with me or something?
  17. You’re quite vague.
  18. We didn’t really talk, but you seem nice.
  19. You’re sweet but sometimes you come across as naive.
  20. It was nice meeting you.

To tell or not to tell

Shit I wish I could say to you specifically:

  1. What the fuck happened? You’ve changed a lot since we first met.
  2. I thought we were friends but I guess not.
  3. You used to be nice and fun to hang out with but now you’re kind of a penis potato (let me know if you get the reference).
  4. What crawled up your ass and died?
  5. You’re closed off, cold, and kind of rude; you’ve been like this since you got a new significant other.
  6. Does having a new s/o suddenly change who you are?
  7. Does it determine whether or not you can still be nice to people?
  8. Were you really always this person, hiding under a facade until you got a s/o?
  9. Or is this just a thing that guys like you do because you can’t be nice to other girls while you’re dating someone?
  10. What the hell did I do to deserve this bullshit from you?

Can someone explain this fuckery to me? Because I still don’t get it.

  6. Mom’s cooking.
  7. Having the access to internet.
  8. Running water.

  10. Having family and friends that genuinely care about how I’m feeling/doing.
