So today I learned that not only do I have poor sarcasm detection, I have the ability to completely overlook directed interest.
After my morning lecture, I made my way to the cafeteria with my good friend, Cynthia (yes), for brunch. Looking at the food behind the counter, I suddenly heard a familiar ‘hey’ on the other side. I looked up, surprised, and standing there was Matt with his kind-of-cute boyish smile.
He’s a little bit taller than me (I guess), blond hair (from what I can tell), blue-ish eyes, chef and a lovely, easy-going personality. We saw each other a lot at the bus stop and train station, so we eventually decided to just talk and become friends, though it’s more like “acquaintance” at this point.
Anyway, I greeted him with a smile and a 'hey' of my own, and we got talking for a couple of minutes before he had to go back to work (not to mention, I was so hungry, the food surrounding me was distracting and I kept looking at it all!). Cynthia and I bought got our wraps and we headed to some couches.
As soon as we sat down, she suddenly said to me, 'He called you beautiful!'. I paused and gave her a quizzical look.
'You're kidding, right? Didn't you hear him?? He said “hey, beautiful”.’
And I kid you not, I swear I only heard him say 'hey'.
But that’s not all.
Apparently, other humans of the male kind have been dropping hints for me to supposedly catch.
I mean, I’ve already caught out one (and let him down), but only because of how blatant he was in terms of conversation. But other than that, there is a reason why I don’t notice these things! They make me so awkward sometimes >.<
