Just thinking. My two best friends growing up were considered good looking by some girls. One of them had a girlfriend in 7th grade. The other one lost his virginity when he was 14. I knew him from 5th grade until a couple years after high school ended. I saw him turn out to be a guy who most girls really liked.
I don’t know how he did it but to me he was the person I played with as a kid and we went out for sports and then got into partying. I have to admit, he amazed me a couple times with the girls he talked to who liked him. He fooled around with a few of the most popular girls in school who were real beauties. We were pretty equal except he got women and I didn’t.
But I have thinking about this for a few months. I think back on my high school years and me and my friends hanging out on the streets every night with the neighborhood girls. We used to fool around with them a little.
But I hung around them all that time and they rarely disrespected me. I mean we were out there playing football while the girls watched or later we all used to party. The girls certainly had no romantic feelings towards me but thinking back, I was accepted. And it wasn’t all because of who my friends were, I think they accepted me on my own merit. Kind of boosts my confidence to realize that.
I’m not even close to being a ladies man, but my fantasy was always to be a player. I always thought that if the right girl liked me, I would “break through” and get into that exclusive club of being liked by women. Of course I’m 60 now and past my prime–by a lot. I talk to women at work or try to be friendly with cashiers. But that’s all it is, friendly talk. I mean I’ve gotten lucky with women years ago and I’m still friendly with a few women at work my age.
It does boost my ego to think of some women who liked me and I liked a lot of them too.
I’m just rambling and reminiscing about the old days.
