That’s one of my favorite jokes ever. As a matter of fact I have this donkey sound notification downloaded on my phone just to use it for when people say anything about assuming. And yes, I’ve used it. But I digress. Why am I bringing up anything about assuming?
Well my friends, lately people have been assuming things about me (or that they think refers to them) and I find it hilarious. Now, one good friend of mine was genuinely concerned that he had offended me and was texting me to apologize. I found this very sweet, but utterly hilarious. The issue was (and I think I’ve posted about this before) a guy telling me he wouldn’t date a single mom because he didn’t want to deal with a constant reminder of the woman’s past/didn’t want to be a dad right off the bat. He didn’t mean me in specific; we were talking generally (though I suppose that would include me ha!). However my friend Kelly (shout to my bro!) thought I meant him. Now, I do not recall him ever saying anything to me about him not wanting to date a single mom, and if he did it obviously didn’t stick in my brain. But it was so funny to me because he’s not the only one to assume something like that recently.
The other person to assume was a guy I was actually crushing on. I had just gotten into a fight with my Ex and was crying and I was throwing the biggest pity party ever! I was all “whoa is me! Why am I not good enough?” It was not one of my better moments, and so I was telling my crush this because I had already figured out we wouldn’t work out together so I was pushing him in the friend-zone. But he instantly said: I never said you weren’t good enough!” So I yelled back at him “I wasn’t talking about you!” I went from crying upset to just aggravated. All he said to that was, “oh.” So I laughed.
I find it entertaining that as soon as I am single all guys think I’m hitting on them if I so much as look in their direction.
But confession time readers: While I am not, repeat not, dating, I have been having coffee and drinks with a guy. He’s been really sweet and understanding. So I’m going to roll with it. He doesn’t want to date; I don’t want to date, so it’s perfect. Coffee, drinks, food. What more do I need?
What about you readers? Have you had anything like that happen to you? I’d love to hear about it!
