The Love Dance
Pattern: dorky guy moves in to neighborhood/ ward/ work situation. They really seem into me, get all awkward, maybe even get up the nerve to ask me out. I think they are dorky, use my usual security net and play them off like a friend. Then every other girl in the ward decides they like said boy and they can actually see he's got this great personality. Suddenly I realize he really is a great guy, and realize he really is kinda cute, too. But by this time their head has swollen beyond repair by all the other attention they are getting. It's too late. So why do I only like them after everyone else does? It's this pattern that's happened over and over again through out my life. and it's a major problem and I'm just now noticing it.
