I feel really vulnerable about it as it’s when I’m at my weakest.
I like a guy.
Like. Really like a guy!
Not an online guy or a guy I think I like because I think he may like me and he said ‘Hey’. Seriously thought shit like this would stop in my thirties! Clearly I ignored the countless warnings from ‘Sex and the City’ and ‘Bridget Jones’ Diary’ – they definitely didn’t have it together.
Anyway, I digress! Back in the room.
I’m going to put on my ‘courageous cape’ (actually don’t own one of these) and let him know I like him. By……
asking him if he wants to go out for a drink!
Okay so I know this may not be a BIG thing for most people. But to me its massive!
Clearly my ways of trying to make it ‘known’ to guys in the past that I like them hasn’t worked.
So, it’s time to cut to the chase and just ask.
Regardless if the answer is: yes, no or………..silence. I’ll be so pleased that I’ve asked.
My career took off when I started to make it known what I wanted. Four promotions in 3.5years was possible because I asked and took action.
- Alongside the four – Yes’
- I got No’s
- And even a silence… 2 years later, I’m still waiting to hear whether I got the job after having an interview! I knew the answer when I left the room but still they ignored me after countless calls and emails (they practically turned me into a stalker)
I got rejected and I’m still here and definitely in a better position than if I’d got that job.
Rejection sucks. But rejection from myself is no longer an option. I certainly shouldn’t be the one standing in the way of getting what I want it!
Whatever the answer is when I ask him out, I know that I’ll be in a better position than I am now. The unknown!
So wish me luck 🤞
(I’m also hoping he doesn’t read this blog – now that would be awkward).
Oh yes, the other confession.
I think I’m really nearly an adult!
Last night whilst changing my bedding. A thought crossed my mind that maybe I should iron it!
Can this be happening?
I immediately shook the ridiculous thought from my mind and left the iron in the cupboard.
I’m part schoolgirl with a crush and part old-maid wanting to iron things!
Here’s hoping you have a great week x
p.s. If you have any tips on how to ask a guy out without looking desperate or sounding too awkward – throw them my way.
p.p.s. If you have any tips on how I can stop thinking about ironing before it gets to the stage where I’m grabbing pants and socks – throw them my way – right now!! Seriously!!
