Do you like me? Check Yes or No! #Blog Challenge Day 6

27 Jan

The person you like and why you like them …

Oh, where to begin–where to begin???

Well, for starters, let me preface this by saying I’m currently not “In like” with anyone. ‘Tis sad but true!

I mean … there’s this one guy! He’s my kryptonite and after a few years (see decades) I still haven’t been able to shake him, but I hardly think he counts anymore. I’ve resigned myself to the fact he and I will live in a constant state of “what if” until we’re old and gray, and married to other people!

Anyway!

This question made me think of the simple days, ya know! Before life and dating made us  hip to the feelings of hardcore rejection, hurt and betrayal. When going out on a limb wasn’t met with so much fear. When shit wasn’t so damn complicated!

We have A MILLION ways to communicate now a days! Ways in which some of us couldn’t fathom when we were younger. I mean … some of  us were pretty sure the world would end LONG before we got a cell phone that can do magic tricks! (Oh, your phone doesn’t do that? Get on board–’cause mine can fly!!! … I kid, I kid).

I miss these days :

 

Things weren’t as hard–WE didn’t make things so hard. It was simple, do you like me? Yes or No!?

We didn’t know about playing hard to get.

Past experiences didn’t make us scared, bitter and/or un-trusting.

Our hearts were pure! Eager for love and friendship! Wanting to cut to the chase.

But now, we have email, Skype, Twitter, Facebook, Cell phones, Cell phone APP’s, Instant messengers, Morse code, smoke signals–really the list goes on!  And of course we can’t forget blogs!  (you have no idea how many blogs I found dedicated just to people writing letters to their exes)

Yet, I think, sadly, our generation is the worst when it comes to communication.

How many people do you know who, when asked their relationship status, hits you with an, “It’s complicated?”

Every situation is different, yada-yada–but in the end I miss the days where it boiled down to the simple question.— Do you like me, yes or no?

Yes= we’re together now or friends.

No= let us know not to waste our times and move on to someone who wants us in their lives.

The memories.

What is a favorite childhood memory? — Summer movie marathons with my siblings and my cousins. Back when I was able to watch 10 scary movies in a row and still sleep at night! 😛 

What is a real fear you have? Other than the dark – ‘cause I’m really afraid of the dark— my biggest fear lately is never finding true love and all that stuff I read (and write) about!
 
How would you describe yourself? One word: Awesome 😀
 

What Countries have you lived in? United States of America, Haiti
 
What is your style? Errr… If we’re talking about fashion… I just like to match. I don’t think I fall into a particular category.
 
What is your favorite breakfast food? Cold pizza or left over take out… Means I had a GREAT night! 😉
 
What are some of your hobbies? Reading, writing, blogging, listening to music, annoying my sister.
 
If you could tell people anything, what would be the most important thing to say? I would tell people they need to enjoy every moment that they can and don’t sweat the small stuff… Life is too short!
 
What is one of your passions? Breathing! I love to breathe… ‘cause if I wasn’t breathing, we’d have some serious problems! :-p But seriously, writing. My passion is writing and I’m trying my hardest to get back into like I used to be.
 
What is the one truth you have learned? I guess going back to #8- I definitely learned the hard way that every second counts. I don’t ever want to be in the position, again, where I can’t do tomorrow, the things I took for granted today.
