Day 33

Dates and Raisins, Part Two.

So, I've just had a date. An actual date. Nothing special, just a few drinks and getting to know eachother but she said it counts as a date. And now she wants to meet again, soon.


I dont think I want this.

I've been very .... err... closed off... these last few weeks. I've recieved compliments from people and felt disgusted. Like I dont deserve them. I felt horrible, sorry that they felt that towards me. Someone from work said that i was very handsome, and i got angry. I asked her to please never say that again. I felt panicked.

And now tonight. This poor girl wanted to get to know me. And I could help but sit there and think to myself "you're going to be so disappointed in me. Why do you even continue to waste your time here".

I dont know what I want anymore. I want to feel love and compassion and intimacy, yet I reject and feel repulsed by any attempt.

What is wrong with me?!

Help. You know me as much as anyone.

    Friend, it sounds like you shouldn't be going out on any more dates until you get this intimacy issue worked out. I feel for you, but I think you should also sympathize with the woman who doesn't know you're emotionally "unavailable." At least for now....
