    Sick if being judged

    for trying to help people and be friendly. Why do people have to think that there's an ulterior motive to being friends with someone if offering to help ??

    I like when girls think I'm flirting with them

    when I'm just talking to them. Once they make it obvious that they think I like them by making a face or saying something snotty it helps me know to stay away from them and their giant egos

    I'm Usually Pretty Clear

    I am very cautious with how much affection I show to guys. For the most part I am rather successful with keeping a professional distance from them. But I am also a friendly person that will use endearments in my speech at times. Such as hun,  this is not to be misconstrued as...

    I Hate Those Certain People...

    I hate when your being nice to someone and all of a sudden their all over you. It's like what are you doing?! 'Your the one that was flirting with me!' No! It's called being nice to someone, if you don't know what that is then you need to be around nicer people.

    Not On Purpose.

    I deliberately avoid saying anything untoward, but I'm aware my politeness and general friendly nature can be misinterpreted. *sigh* Trust me, you would know if I was flirting with you, I don't leave room for any doubt...

    Last year I found out that one of my guy friends had a crush on me. I really wasn't trying to be flirty. I talked with him, took his side in an argument with someone because he was right, said I kinda liked his favorite genre of music, and sat with him on the bus. I really was...

    This has happened to me so many times, mostly online. Just because I'm single doesn't mean that I'm desperate and will flirt my pants off or something to get into a relationship. This dude asks for my number online after like 3 days of talking to him. I'm like, ''Um, no, I don...
