These girls weren’t the female equivalent of the Deliverance boys either, they were perfectly upstanding but they went with the worst lot you can imagine.
And whenever I saw how comfy and happy these girls were around these scumbags, all I could feel was contempt for them. But the fact that you don’t see whatever it is that see doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist.
I remember the daughter of the high school superintendent ditched a nerdy but good Asian guy for some big time military guy.
Don’t really have much of an opinion on him, don’t know anything about him.
They looked just as sleazy as these dudes, it was like hearing a public figure you support did or said something really asinine. You’re making a whole lot of judgements based on your ideas of who these people are without actually seeing them together.
She grabbed my ass and tried playing with my hair, and I was really fucking creeped out.
Or how some lacrosse girl in sophomore year started flirting with me and when I just kind of gave her the cold shoulder, she brazenly asked for my number.
I was taken a bit aback not just by her interest but how she seemed to be demanding it, and didn’t give it to her just because it made me uncomfortable.
But you’re ascribing a whole lot of weirdness to someone who’s being straightforward with you. Or maybe they were the types who’d hang out in the alleyway doing needles or the like and I was better off without them. Because “think you’re cool and attractive and maybe want to kiss” sounds like a pretty good reason to be hot for someone.
Nope, turns out they were perfectly on the up and up with everybody else and genuinely hot for me, but not for the reasons I ever would have wanted. Now back then I was so fucking depressed and messed up in the head that I knew I was not ready for any sort of relationship.
But after she broke up with him, she went out with an insufferable goth kid asshole for years, way longer than the previous two, the type of troublemaker who somehow drew a penis using a pencil on a stainless steel stool and flunked most of his classes while she was a perfect straight A student.
