No One’s 2nd Choice

Let me start off by warning that this may be a rant. Now for the back story. There’s this guy at work that started bringing one of my favorite coworkers/close friend gifts. Being the queen of instigation when it comes to people’s love lives, I was all for this. It would have worked out great if she hadn’t already had a boyfriend. Anyways, long story short this guy realized that he was only ever going to be friends with my friend and has now moved on to trying to talk to me. Am I being a drama queen or is this actually not a cool thing to do?

Everyone keeps asking me why I won’t just go out on a date with him. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a nice guy and under other circumstances, I may or may not have actually given him a chance. My answer to the question people keep asking me is ” I am no one’s 2nd choice”. I’m a big romantic, meaning I appreciate sweet gestures, I believe in love at first sight, and I’m a fan of the idea of literally feeling a spark when you come into contact with a special someone. Nowhere in the “Manual for Romantics” book is there a section on being someones second choice. I am not the girl someone “settles” for. I refuse to be that girl. On the bright side, this made me realize that I actually am more than that and even though I sometimes wish I had an S.O. I shouldn’t ever “settle” for anyone either.
