My buddy Nate came over last night to chat as he does from time to time. And as single person conversation tends to, we ended up talking about dating. !shocker!
He gave me some interesting insight that should not be taken as the rule of thumb by any means, but was interesting nonetheless. He told me that sometimes boys will immediately put funny girls into the dreaded friend zone. Not all guys, but some will see the girl as someone who entertains them and therefore discounts them as a potential love interest. Huh.
My first thoughts -
1) Well that's dumb
2) Maybe I should tone it down a bit, I sometimes command a bit too much attention
3) How stupid, I'm not toning anything down. I gotta be me!
I have to laugh and I need someone I can laugh with. My life is guaranteed to be full of laughter and maybe some guys will discount me because of that. Oh well, their loss. I guess it's not the worst thing in the world to be "friend zoned" for. What if I had really bad breath or was extremely awkward around guys? (only one of the two of those is true)
Someday I shall blog about how I developed my own brand of humor....
By the way, if you've never met me, I'm much funnier in person. I promise.
