So first of all I am not exactly prime dating material by any means whatsoever. I go to this same gas station for cigarettes on a regular basis and so it should be obvious to them that
- I probably don’t have a job
- I am up at all sorts of weird hours
- I chain smoke like a fiend
Plus I am often not doing well, so half the time I am in there I am
- unshowered, greasy, messy hair
- huge, dark eyebags
- dirty outfit I have been wearing for over a week straight
I am also a good 30 pounds overweight, and even if all of this stuff were not true, my features are average at best in terms of being attractive. In addition to my puffy face and eye bags, I just have a kind of a drug-addict gnome look about me.
Then my social skills are also terrible. I don’t make much eye contact, I don’t talk much, and probably always seem weirdly flighty/paranoid.
In spite of ALL this, this guy at the gas station always tries to chitchat with me, and tonight when I went to buy cigarettes, he tried to ask me out. I was more or less stunned/startled because there I am, fat, awkward, greasy, dirty clothes, even dirty finger nails which I didn’t notice until I was halfway down the block, and he asked me what my name was, saying in all this time he’s never known my name.
I told him and then he asked me if I had a boyfriend, I said no.
Then he asked me if I was looking for a boyfriend, and I said no.
And then he acted disappointed and tried to ask me why, and gestured to himself and tried to indicate he was interested.
I grabbed my cigarettes, said thanks like I always do and about ran out of the store.
So there you have it folks. It doesn’t matter how socially inept, stinky, dirty and fat you are, there will inevitably be someone who hits on you. This was my first time being hit on in about 3 years I believe.
So don’t give up, because I’ve seen many of ya’ll and at least you take showers lmao.
