I'm not picky. I just have excellent taste in friends.

Okay, I feel pathetic

I added you because you made a post to the Open Letters community that I found funny - and your user profile reflected we have similar interests. You added me back - for about ten seconds. Then you changed your mind. I'm usually not the kind to dwell on this.


Heck, I don't even know you. But in this particular instance, I feel the need to ask the question. Why? Not like you owe me an explanation, but curiosity has got the cat.

You managed to gain my respect in a very short period of time. Approximately the same amount of time it took me lose/not earn yours. Because of that, I'm hoping you will answer my question honestly. Not because I seek to change your mind. Rather, how many opportunities does one have to question a rejection from one they respect?

Whether or not you reply, best of luck to you!

Nothing ventured...

I didn't lose respect for you. Not at all.

I hope I don't offend you when I say this (and I know this is gonna sound really strange), but I found some of your entries to be rather self-depricating and I got a little annoyed by it (mainly because they were so similar to how I wrote a few years ago). I find myself moving as far away from people who remind me of who I was a few years ago (not because I'm running from my past, but rather I just don't want to be reminded of it right now).

I hope that didn't sound too strange to you, but it's the truth.

Well, on some level it sounds strange. By strange, I mean unexpected. I asked you because I was hoping for an honest answer, and I got it. For that I am very grateful. Thank you. That was exactly the kind of information I was looking for.

It's sort of a mixed bag, really. I'm glad it wasn't something like, "You say fuck too much." On the other hand, it concerns me that you found my entries self-deprecating. I've considered that a part of my sense of humor, but your suggestion makes me question whether or not I'm thinly veiling low self-esteem.

Conversely, I'm flattered. Like I said, I really enjoyed your posts. Maybe if I remind you or yourself from several years ago - I'm headed in the right direction!

I wish you nothing but the best.
