him: "wanna go skiing sometime? I love skiing, am going with a group."

me:  "well, I've only been a few times so I'm not very good at it, but maybe."

him:"come, join us, it'll be fun!"

me: "well, let me see. I'll be on the bunny slope the whole time probably." (I start laughing)

him: "well I will be too then because I want to ski with you."

me: "um, no, you'll want to go down whatever slopes you enjoy!"

him: "what's the point of going skiing WITH you then? I enjoy your company, you're fun. I could show you how to ski."

me: "I may only want to ski for 2 hours and then spend 2 hours drinking hot chocolate!" (laughing again)

him: "okay, cool! Whatever you like, I want to do the thing you like."


  1. Good for you and your crush. It does feel nice, doesn't it?

  2. This is kinda how I act when relationships start - I don't stand up for who I am or what I like for fear of turning the person off or scaring them away. The problem is that it's not the real me and THAT's the person I should be advertising. Anyone can put on an act temporarily for someone new, but the question is what are they like once they are more comfortable with you and the facade falls away?
