Last year I was texting with some guy and complaining about a long shift at work, or something like that, when he responded with, “Well, at least you have legs.” A response I found rather presumptuous, because we hadn’t actually met in person yet, and maybe I didn’t have any legs.
And also it was annoying.
But now I’m texting with some other guy and he’s telling me all about his crappy exams and his crappy ex-girlfriend and the only thing I can think to respond is, “Well, at least you have legs!” And I’ve seen his legs so the only way I mean this is, “Hey, I don’t want to hear about your shit.”
Dating is hard because it takes a lot for me to genuinely care about someone and I have zero interest in faking it, which is something I probably shouldn’t say out loud, but technically I’m not saying it I’m typing it. And can we please for a minute just talk about how ridiculous it is that a stage of a relationship (in my case many non-relationships), an actual level of knowing someone is referred to as “texting”? What does that even mean?
Well I know what it means and the term is actually quite accurate I just don’t like it because I am oh so terrible at it.
