I Like You. You're Not My Type
Types: Stupid and Irrelevant
“I like you. But you’re not my type.” What is that supposed to mean? Where is the logic behind saying that? It’s like saying, “I like apples, but I don’t eat them.” Honestly, if you like someone, you like someone; types are stupid and irrelevant.
We, as humans, have feelings and we are supposed to share them. If one person doesn’t feel the same way, they should approach the topic with maturity and let the other know that the feelings aren’t mutual. That way, someone doesn’t get emotionally invested in something that they cannot have.
Liking someone can be physically and mentally draining. You may try to impress them, but being yourself is the obvious advice that everyone gives each other. Funnily enough, not many people actually do this. I’m not saying go ahead and dress up for this person, no. I’m just saying approach the situation how you want; everyone has their own techniques into “reeling someone in.” But this leads to the problem of mentality: why is it also mentally draining? You think about them constantly, depicting scenarios in your head to events that may not even happen. Why waste time on someone that is a) not interested, b) playing hard to get and c) unsure of who they are (sexuality wise)?
They themselves may have a type, and only be looking for someone with certain qualities. This is a very stupid way to go about liking someone. Who, in all honesty, cares if they aren’t who you envisioned yourself with? It’s interesting that we waste time searching for the “barbie dolls” of the world. Media has taught us what “pefection” is. The problem is, perfection is not perfect. It’s a disease. A psychological disease that has been contracted to all.
If someone really likes you, and you really like them, whether or not they are your type, then go for it. You really have nothing to lose. We all just want to feel wanted, that’s all we live by in the modern world. Personally, I’m just waiting for someone that I can talk to about nothing, call over for the night and fall asleep in each others arms. As the overused, pop-culture artist Ke$ha reference states: ‘We r who we r’.
