I Like You...But I Love Somebody Else!

This is the wonderful Tic Tac line from Kwani Kwani which me and the other girls love so much. In fact I have always wanted to say it to somebody. Which actually sounds quite mean however, I don't want to say it to be mean...well actually....errmmmmm...look right, THAT IS A LINE AND A HALF!

Anyhoo, as per Nsoromma, this post is gonna be all confused about love. You see, recently I (er-hmm) acquired a toy boy. And apart from not being overly broad, he is the physical definition of my type and SOOOOOO cute. And sweet. And adorable. Awwwwwwwwwwwwww. Jheeze. He approached me when he caught me making eyes at him. Can you believe I actually got caught? S-L-I-P-P-I-N-G! Jheeze!

But now the gloss is dissipating because his situ is somewhat messy. He has a clingy ex and a long-time-friend stroke love interest. Now tbh, I can't really complain to much about that but I will as my attention is more than a little divided. You see there's this dude my family has been tryna set me up with who I'm surprised I actually quite like. He's intelligent, kind, funny, cheeky and oddly sexy even though he's not physical my type much.

I guess I'm just a bit confused as the second guy seems pretty much perfect which scares the crap out of me but I know that with work the youngie has potential. The problem is that the second guy moves sooooo slow, something he warned me of but in real life, W-O-W, it's pretty much incomparable. Do I wait for him, as it seems the wait may be well worth it, as he has admitted to liking me?

But to limit myself from liking him too much whilst he moves like a snail I've been giving up a lot of my time (in retrospect, probably WAY too much) to the youngie. He's cute, he's sweet and I'm a bit bored so methinks why not. But now he has said 'I LOVE YOU'. Oh dear. I just kind of hug him and change the subject. But he knows I'm avoiding it.

Anyhoo, the reason I quoted the relationship guru that is Tic Tac (Muhahahahahaha!!! Mad crazy laugh time!), is that truly I like both guys and while I have been WAITING years to use this line. I'm starting to get scared that I may just have to!

Oh and in related news...the ex who shall forever remain hated is actually in a relationship with the girl he cheated on me for and in what feels like returning to a past life I am starting to fancy a promoter friend of mine. The wickedest thing is that I make cracks about it all the time to him, but now it's actually true.

I can only sigh and smh at my self.
Nsoromma...COTH xXx


9 opinionated people have something to say:

Esi W. Cleland said...

In Malcom Gladwell's book "Blink", he cites an experiments that suggests that humans say we want certain things in a partner but the person we are actually attracted to, in the moment, when we're feeling and not thinking, may be far from what we say we want when we're thinking with our heads. So which is the truth? The guy we choose and click with on the dance floor, or the guy we choose when we're thinking straight?

Sorry I haven't been here in a while. I just love the topics you choose and the style of your writing.

Sometimes it can be a case of Mr Right or Mr Right Now! Do not rush into your decision my dear, enjoy the dating game and as for your stinky ex...my motto is always 'The way you got together is the way you will fall apart'...so in dishonest circumstances it will eventually come to pass, if not today, then in the future and you will certainly have the last laugh!


Sankofa said...

No harm in having fun. We're only twenty-somethings after all but just remember to protect your heart! It sucks when you realise you've fallen for somebody you only intended on having some fun with.

@Esi I think I'll rather have the guy I like when I'm actually thinking straight.

Nsoromma...Child of the Heavens said...

@ Esi - I think on a serious tip, it just has to be the one who ticks the right boxes when you are thinking straight. Obviously, it needs a bit more than just box ticking but that will probably have a better foundation.

@ NYA - Nice to c u r back! I think some of us LALI girl's have been on a bit of a haitus too so we can't complain. Thanx for the compliment too.

@ LoveWasTheEgg - I like to think I have sense...lol...so when I'm actually thinking Mr. Right is more appealing than Mr. Right Now. But the problem is sometimes in those situations I'm tryna NOT to think. If that makes any sense...

@ Sankofa - I hear you girl. I'm really tryna get my emotions under lock. But when the youngie says I love u, I actually melt. Because I know he believes he does, even though I don't think deep down he does.

My friend's granny always says "marry somebody with fewer issues than you". It's a shame issues (imho) add to the fun of a situation.

I hope that, if you do have to use that line, they know the song and can (eventually) see the humour in it.

Nsoromma...Child of the Heavens said...

Issues to add an interesting mix that I cannot deny.

See the humour? WOULD YOU?

Friday's Afro said...

WOW! Lucky Lady, I've always wanted to 'date' as in get to know different men without being tied to one and it seems that despite your feelings you're managing to do that. which one is gonna get the line though because from your post I can't tell, use your head now because you seem to have 'heart' feelings for both....

Nsoromma...Child of the Heavens said...

Yes I think I do have heart feeling for both. I just hope my rashness doesn't come out and make me do or say something stupid. Cuz it's a nice balance right now.
