My friend called me the other day and told me that this guy kept texting her that he was thinking about her. I told her to tell him to stop thinking about her. She said I sounded like my toddler. I said there may be something to that (and truthfully I do spend a great deal of my verbal interactions with a toddler). Like this morning when Ila said “go away” and I said that wasn’t very nice she said “go away please”. The truth was she wasn’t worrying about my feelings she just needed some space. I was the one worrying about feelings and taking it personally.
My friend said, well toddlers don’t have manners and don’t worry about hurting feelings and I said that is exactly it. My friend said she didn’t like rejection, I told her that was her issue – perhaps this stalker guy had no issue with rejection. Perhaps we should be more primal. Perhaps we should date and even talk like toddlers. If we don’t like something we should just be honest and say we don’t like it. If we want to be left alone we should just say we need space. Like my daughter at the end of her rope will say things like “don’t look at me” or “don’t hug me” or even “don’t love me” she is not plagued by social graces. She would be a man killer – hence why men love bitches.
