This is how our conversations go when I’m feeling tired, lonely, insecure and bored (all at the same time). Mostly lonely and insecure though.
M: I have a question for you. But I’m not sure if I should ask it.
C: [pause] You can ask me anything. I just might not answer.
M: You sure?
C: Yeah, go ahead.
M: And it comes from the fact that we never see each or you never have time for me. [pause] Are you seeing someone else?
C: I do have friends… But no, I’m not seeing anyone though.
M: Does “I’m not seeing anyone though” include me?
C: No, it doesn’t include you, silly girl.
M: Very good answer.
