You know, it’s weird.
When I see really attractive girls who seem cool, I automatically assume they’re out of my league.
But when I think about all the things I have going for me, I realize I’m actually pretty rad myself, and I could totally date one of those ladies I find so desirable. They’re “in my league,” but I still don’t feel like that’s the case.
I was talking to my therapist about this, and she came up with the theory that I’m just finding the easy way out, whether I’m conscious of it or not. Because it’s way easier for me to just say these girls are out of my league, mentally dismiss them, and go on with my day, versus actually going up and talking to them and facing possible rejection, or if I’m not instantly rejected, having to come up with things to say that don’t sound completely stupid or creepy.
I’ve never been a fan of difficult things. I think that may be at the bottom of all this…
