I have been dating a man for a little bit. Sometimes he says really sweet and nice things to me. He is kind of romantic. And me? Romantic? Not exactly. I think it has become pretty clear to him that I am not so much the romantic type, and that I say a lot of stupid stuff without thinking. Two examples:
On our first date:
He said: "Mmmmm. You smell so good. Do you always smell this good?"
I said: "Only on the days that I shower."
Poor guy. I am sure he doesn't know what to think of me.
A more recent example:
He texted: "I think of you and your laugh all the time. The thought gets me smiling."
I texted back: "Barf."
I could give more examples, but I think I am too embarrassed to do so. Maybe that means I am learning and I will curb what I say? Maybe. But doubtful.
