heh. i think the man upstairs is having a great big laugh at our expense, moby. endows us with all of these amazing gifts, but then leaves us hanging dry in the end.
you mention that it's draining to have to feel like we're constantly mentoring the clingy girls. but i find that it's actually MORE emotionally draining for me to feel like I have to continually stay in persona in order to get anywhere with most girls. Like an actor who's never allowed off-stage, I feel like I have to be "on" at all times, and that's really frustrating. As soon as the real me comes out, the magic is suddenly gone. I'm left to wonder if it's my fault for creating that aura in the first place, or hers for wanting to see nothing but the smoke and mirrors.
it's so odd, really, when i think about it.
we have an amazing ability to gain instant attraction due to our charisma. it gets girls thinking about taking you back home with them. but we prefer sitting down and having a heart-to-heart discussion (preferably one where we kinda lecture them about life ) and making that emotional connection, rather than going for the one night stand. so, we're great for attracting girls for the one night stand but we don't want one. when we go for the emotional connection, they don't want it. jeez. that leaves nobody better off, if i did my math correctly.
