LoverBoy - I Take it Nice and Slow

I'm No Player...

So this girl gave me her number, but I didn't know how long I should wait to call her.

My friend said a week, but not sooner than five days. That way she knows you're a guy of importance. And he knows women, he's a player, so I managed five days, and I called. And she goes: "I gave you my number last weekend and you're only calling now? You're a player, is that it?"

"No!" I said. "I'm really not!" "I think you are," she said. "You're a player. I'm sorry but I don't go out with players. I'm looking for someone sincere." "But I am sincere!" I said. "I'm not a ladies' man! I'm terrible with ladies! Ask any lady!" I don't know, I must have sounded desperate enough. Cos then she says.... "You're really not a player?" "I swear I'm not a player. I don't even know the game, never mind how to play," I promised her. "So you're not just trying to get into my pants, and then you're going to disappear?" "I swear. I believe in taking it slow." "You do?" "Very slow. So slow. Like, holding-hands kind of slow. Give me a chance, I'll show you."

So I got the date. But now, to show I'm not a player, I'm not a player, I have to go so slow, I don't even know what the point of the date is. I'm not winning here. Maybe I need to just stop getting advice from my buddies.

I think we cannot blame the advice we get from friends sometimes. They are also sharing based on their experiences. So we cannot blame them for that. Reading the story, i believe sometimes one should just do what they think of doing. Not being reckless of course but i sometimes feel that people fear rejection a lot. They fear people's views and what they have to say and will think.The story above, i believe, is a true reflection of that. Sometimes just do what you intend on doing without fearing what people might say. It sounds easier said than but just try. ~JustDoIt

That's very inspirational and true Miyanda. As young people we tend to consider other people's comment, that wont pay us any cent.
