Would You Rather?

Would you rather know someone liked you, but not know who that person is?
OR...
Would you rather not know anyone liked you at all?

There is controversy over this issue pending...

i'd rather know. it always feels nice to know someone is "pickin' up what i'm puttin' down"

ego likes crushes even if from ugly strangers.

Knowing someone is interested is always exciting. Besides, that way you can keep your eye out for who it may be. Its like a game!

i hate not knowing! it makes me insane. like that time in the 8th grade when i got a rose from a secret admirer and it made me mad. prolly because i'm pretty sure it came from one of my friends who pitied me.

Please.
Each of you, I know for a fact are irresistible. Let's be honest. My readers of Blogg are particularly interesting/attractive/hilarious. I can say, quite assuredly and with great confidence, that someone has a crush on each one of you right now.

but WHO, farrah??? WHO???

Lindsey said...

I don't care either way, b/c I know that if I actually decide to like someone for a change, they will totally like me. I'm irresistable and that is all that matters! And, the guy I finally choose, is going to be one lucky guy. Some say I'm confident, others conceited...

I'd rather know that someone liked me and not know who it is. But, I mean who are we kidding that is pretty much a given with me.

By the way, thanks for taking off from the party with out saying bye. I didn't even get the chance to put the moves on you. Sheesh.

I disagree with you all! The anticipation of not knowing who the person is would drive me CRAZY. I'd be an absolute mess trying to hunt the person down, and if you know me, I'd know by sunset. Manhours wasted in efforts to discover the true identity of a secret admirer. I don't like secrets, and I don't like admirers from afar. MAN UP!

Ladies, ladies... it dosen't matter either way. There may be a small rush of adrenaline once you hear the words "someone likes you." It all goes away when (99% of the time) you realize you are not interested, or you realize that you still have to wait for we gentlemen to make the move. Unless of course all you confident/conceited girls decide to make the first move... doubt it though. There is a chance though, that excitement spark will not fade, but to be honest most of you sisters have built this mold that only .001% of the male Mormon population will fit into (or an X-boyfriend). No good will come of this, a lot of wasted emotional energy. You do have to leave room for chance though.

someone who likes you but won't fess up is invariably turns out to be disappointing.

Tannerama-
As I recall, you had your moves all over me. And I did say goodbye a second time. But maybe it wasn't with the appropriate amount of booty-shaking. My apologies.

For the record, in this particular situation, it was a WOMAN (in a relationship) who said that she thought a particular MALE friend of ours would be her #1 (if she weren't already involved with someone). HE is the one who was desperate to find out who the woman was.

My thought was simply, "why doesn't he just ask out girls he could be remotely interested in- it seems like if ONE person finds him that desirable, there is likely more than a few who wouldn't mind a little 1-on-1 with him." Clearly my opinion matters little, since he didn't seem to believe me when I told him he was attractive, smart, funny, and that I would totally date him. That girl could have totally been ME, but he didn't seem to care anyway.

"but to be honest most of you sisters have built this mold that only .001% of the male Mormon population will fit into (or an X-boyfriend)."

please. like the girls are pickier than the guys? give me a break. that's why there's about 8,003 of us single girls and about 12 of you single guys. who just can't seem to find any available girls.

(of course i'm speaking in generalized terms)

Dubious Brown said...

a player should always assume that several ladies dig him and assume that he doesn't know said ladies.

f*bomb. said...

That was so smooth, Dubius. So smooth. And, of course, in your case, that's absolutely 100% true at least 65% of the time, every time.

zse406 said...

Caroline... I am not complaining... luckily I am one of the .001% that fits the mold. Maybe I fit the mold you have created.. wink wink. On a more serious note... I was just saying I think girls get turned off by dudes talking about their "crushes" to other girls. They find out and boom = turned off. Man up shmam up...

f*bomb. said...

Exactly.
Obviously, in this context, it was meant to simply be a compliment and encourage our male friend to ask out women because there are women out there who admire him. It's a compliment.

However, as far as I'm concerned, if a man isn't man enough to act on his interest- straight up, he's just not man enough for me. Crushes were fun when we were in high school, but now crushes have seemed to translate into, "but I'm just not THAT into you..." enough to actually do anything about it.

caroline said...

zse406, i like your style.

farrah... well said. i was always raised to think that if a guy likes you, he asks you out. he does something about it. not just, "maybe i'll see you around at this thing we both might be at."

f*bomb. said...

Exactly, Caro.
That's where I think our little "LDS Community" really shoots us in the foot. A little TOO much exposure, a little TOO much contact...Why try when you know you're just going to see them tomorrow anyway? Then, by the time you DO get to know them, you think, "I'm not dating THAT person- we're FRIENDS!" As my gentile cousin has scoffed at my situation (being single while immersed in other singles and constantly busy with activities geared toward singles), he laughed in his Boston drawl, "So...Familiarity breeds contempt, huh!?!"
