    I was taught that it is always a plus to "know

    when to leave." I am very intuitive by nature anyways...but Ive almost perfected reading little clues by [host, boyfriend, party atmosphere,] that the time to go is now. We all have that one friend who stays wayyyyyy past GO time. I am proud to say....I will never be that friend...

    When I say I love you

    and you say " okay.. Bye". That hurts. If you were just another boy Id blow it off but your my Son, that's impossible.

    I'm taking it as a hint

    and I'm backing up. 2 days you don't answer my text but your last text to me was that you are sick. funny how when I was at your house Saturday morning with you and you were fine. 45 minutes after I leave is when you stopped texting. 4 am is when you text talking about you're...

    So I use to date this guy a few years ago

    when we broke up we didn't talk for over a year now we're friends we hang out often and things are just as cool as can be except I'm almost positive he still likes me that way he hints a lot of things towards me and I just ignore it really but one thing he does is show me...

    Doesn't Mean You Are Going to Get Your Way!

    Hint all day and if it is not on my AGENDA it is not going to happen the way you hope to make it happen!

    But I would respect you more

    if you just came out and said it instead of beating around the bush.

    I was a 5th grader and did not wear the latest

    fashion, did not have stylish hair, my parents just couldn't afford the stuff with the labels for me, and what they could afford, I just didn't have the style sense to know what worked together. But I was still a pretty awesome kid. I inserted myself into a group of girls...

    I was hanging out with my friend

    and he kept saying stuff like " You have really pretty eyes" and "I really like hanging out with you." I just made a joke out of it with replies like "i know right" and "yeah me too." When we were walking through the crowd I pressed my finger against his back(it's my thing) so I...

    We met last summer, got hot

    and heavy into romance, she had to leave at the end of the summer. We sent serious love letters back and forth. She flew all the way here to visit me twice. I flew to see her once too. 3000 miles apart! The last time she came she seemed distant and I saw her texting with a man...

    There's this girl in school

    who I suspect likes me,we don't talk much but she recently started talking to me. Today she hit me playfully while I wasn't looking which I think is pretty random. Do you guys think she's interested in me?

    But when you read all my texts,

    you never answer. Who else could you be talking to when you say I'm the only one. But for how long? I'm not sympathetic to the distance keeping you from me. Maybe it's for the better. You know I'm upset, you know all this silence is going to be the death of me. I don't think you...

    Feel like to many people are afraid to hurt my

    feelings. I'd rather someone be honest and hurt than lie to me and feel better. So when I feel like they are hinting something I run.

    I love being cute with my girlfriend

    but I don't think she likes it. Which is really annoying me because I want to express myself to her and she seems a bit embarrassed when I do/ say sweet things with her. Am I in the wrong?

    I never felt so old. Last night I was working

    as a bouncer. All I had to do was sit there and check IDs. All of a sudden I realized I was the oldest one there. I can remember not that long ago being the youngest person in the bar.

    Sure Can

    I can take a hint!!! Who am I kidding I am a man and we don’t do hints very well. But we can read the writing on the wall sometimes.

    Especially in person,

    it's a lot easier for me due to the help of body language. But through message or text, it kinda takes me awhile to figure it out but eventually, I can take a hint. With over hundreds of repetition, you can say I pretty much mastered it.

    I for one am likely to respond ambiguously to

    something without considering it first = engage brain before mouth. Friends know me a dare not offended. If I do to you, it'll not be meant to hurt you as I am consciously tactile. Just to show how words can be misunderstood. But if yours was meant, I can take it as I'm thickset...

    I know it's over now,

    I just needed time to understand that. I still love you with all my heart but it's clear to me now, that you don't feel the same. I may have not have been able to accept this before but now I'm ready, Im ready to let go, no matter how much it hurts.

    I hate sugar coating and reading between the lines. I can take a hint, though. Next time, telling me directly would be nicer. Thanks everyone who is a hint addict, you annoy me.
