“I kind of don’t date.
There’s a gap between me and most people, there just always has been.
I used to think it was because I was younger and in school but even after school, the gap, it just got bigger and more impossible. I wasn’t too young; I was just too different. So I know what it looks like when I say “no” to dating. It’s fun and we are happy for a while until it’s not. Things always get awkward… and weird. So I over-correct and he misinterprets and then we are not on the same page anymore because we never were on the same page. We were always miles and miles apart with this gap between us… pretending it wasn’t there and I dont want to pretend. I don’t like to pretend. I’m fine on my side of the gap.”
