Girl Trouble

I didn’t really expect to be posting again so soon but I have a few things I want to get off my chest. But before I do that, I would like to thank everyone that has visited this blog so far and for commenting. I really appreciate the support.

A perfectly ordinary night sat watching films at a friend’s house was spoiled when my housemate Emma dropped a bombshell and announced she is moving out at the end of the academic year. According to her, this was always the plan. She is actually rather infuriating a lot of the time so I’m not exactly devastated that she’s going but it puts the rest of us in a rubbish situation. There is rumour that another of my housemates, Asif, is also planning to leave. Either way, whoever is left will either have to move somewhere else or live with a complete stranger unless we are somehow very lucky. And despite the fact that my other female housemate Hannah doesn’t like Emma much either, I can guarantee she will be tears over this. It looks very much like even my home won’t be a pleasant place to be for the next few months and possibly even years. I’m quite stressed about this already.

I do have a little news on the romantic side too. There’s a girl I kind of like called Catherine but the chances of us ever getting together are slim. She’s the ex-girlfriend of my closest friend at university John and doesn’t seem in the slightest bit interested. Nevertheless, I have been keeping optimistic and being a little flirty and extra-nice to her. I haven’t told a soul about this either. Then yesterday we were writing a silly text message and I suggested we use the word “oral” instead or “vocal” because it would be funnier. And then Hannah said in regards to the word oral “We could just leave you in a room with Catherine”. I just nodded non-comittedly but inside I was very confused. Did she say this as a joke or was it something more? She could have been hinting that it’s really obvious that I am attracted to Catherine. If I was being really optimistic I would say that it’s a hint that Catherine is attracted to me. I’ve decided it best not to think about it too much that’s easier said than done. If anyone wishes to comment with their interpretation, please do!

Tonight Hannah has had a guy she really fancies round who she is trying to get with. The only issue is that he already has a boyfriend. Morally she should stop trying to split them up and he should know better, but if I was in a similar situation to her I would try and pursue it. The guy is being a complete moron and should stop leading her on or attempting to cheat on his girlfriend, whichever he is doing. But Hannah just can’t see that.

With all these events combined, I have to say I don’t have a very high opinion of the opposite gender at the moment. If girls could show me they are not all bitchy all the time then perhaps I would like them more.

At this point, things can only get better. Actually that’s probably not true but things will be really, really awful if they get any worse.

The Beginning

There was a time when I was much happier. Back in 2009/2010 I was in a very happy relationship. I also had loads of mates at the Sixth Form I studied at. Those were the days. In April last year my ex-girlfriend spontaneously decided we should split up. I was devastated but I thought perhaps it wasn’t over at all as we continued to meet up and even kissed at one point. Three months after the split and she was on her second boyfriend after me. All the things she said to me about being close and everything and it just wasn’t true. I was devastated that she moved on from me so quickly and quite angry that fate has made her happy but not me.

Still, I gradually got over it, not that I’ll ever be properly over it, and did my A-levels. I did OK and got into the university I wanted to go to. The prospect of going to a university where there are eight girls to every guy was pretty pleasing. But things didn’t turn out the way I hoped. There were a few attempts at getting with girls but nothing happened. This would have all been OK if I had made a brilliant band of friends but I can’t say I have. Of course there are a few people I hang out with and get along with but it seems unlikely I’ll ever even speak to them once we’ve left uni. And what’s worse is that all but my two best mates have completely abadoned me. They never speak to me and the idea of meeting up actually seems horrific to them.

So that’s my situation right now. I’m just steadily going through life with little excitement or even enjoyment. Don’t get me wrong, I do have good times but they seem to be few and far between nowadays. The purpose of this little blog is to share my experiences with life, especially my encounters with the females of the species. Will anyone ever Lay all their love on me? Only time will tell…
