She's All That
This weekend, the Boy and I set up my friend K with his friend M.
K is my best friend. I've known her for many years. To say we are very close is an understatement.
I'm very protective of K. She doesn't have that much experience with boys, but I'm always on the lookout for her. And I'm very careful to screen potential weirdos.
I met M a few months ago, when he and the Boy were hanging out. He seemed nice and friendly and normal.
And the Boy informed me that he was single. And looking for someone special.
So we planned a double date. The Boy talked up K to M. I talked up M to K.
The four of us went out together.
The two of them really seemed to hit it off. They talked nonstop during the whole night.
They were so absorbed in each other that neither of them paid much attention to the Boy and me. We were like the boring old couple chaperoning them.
The next day, M told the Boy, "I'm not going to call K. She was very nice, but I didn't feel a spark."
In spite of myself, I feel strangely angry toward M.
Who is he to be so picky? K is wonderful and sweet and smart, not to mention gorgeous. And he should be so lucky!!
He should look in the mirror. He ain't all that. And he sure flies high!
I think I'd better avoid M for a while, because I'm really afraid that if I see him anytime soon, I'm going to slip up and give him an angry look or say something snarky out of indignation and loyalty for my best friend.
It's strange, but I feel like he rejected me.
One time a few years ago, I went out with a guy who never called me afterward. And I didn't feel anywhere near as angry then as I do now! #
