I really like this guy
and, about a month ago, we had a dance at school. It was really cool because he
kept talking to me. He seemed to really like me. After the dance, I was so
obsessed that I posted stuff about him all over my profile. You know, the "I <3 you" stuff. I totally know that was wrong now, but I scared him
off! I don't try to talk to him anymore, but I still like him. Is there any way
I can save this?
Bill: You should think of profile pages like
they’re soapboxes in the middle of the mall. Would you stand up and tell
everyone you know (and don't know) about something that you'd rather keep
private? Doubt it. Social websites are the same way. Since anyone can read
them, you need to be careful what you write. Tell the guy that you made a mistake
and you won't do it again, but your sentiments were real. And from now on,
you'll keep them to him, you, and your private diary.
Dave: Soapboxes? As always, Bill keepin’ it
real. At one time or another, we all have gone a little overboard with someone
we really like. That’s not obsession, it’s just being human. That said, it’s
also normal for your guy to feel a tad uncomfortable by your public displays
implying you two are an item when things are not yet at that point. Take Bill’s
advice and plead for a do over. Oh, I shouldn’t have point this out, but do
your pleading in private.
Love this post? You’ll heart these too…
