Volume 3, Issue 4, (Originally Published on Monday 25th March 2013)
Dear Agony Aunt,
Can girls be creepy? I’m not looking for permission, but there’s a guy. He says he only wants to be friends. I want more. All the movies say that with enough hi-jinks and meet cutes, the guy will fall for the career driven girl who can’t keep a boyfriend. I’m afraid that in real life, that’ll just come off as unhinged.
In Need of Guidance.
Dear In Need of Guidance,
Yes. And of you are. Whilst I am the first to admit that I go through life with my personal soundtrack reverberating within my skull, you will not only come off as unhinged, but as desperate.
Back off, be friends, it will happen naturally, or it won’t. Remember that though a little bit of crazy can be attractive, you can never wash away the stench of desperation.
