I think my condo is the new 'bachelorette' type pad.

It makes men confused and say things that they haven’t said before.

Since I’ve moved in, I’ve had three different men articulate their love and passion for me. Each time its been fellas that I’ve known and hung out plutonically for years with, and each time its thrown me for a loop.

I think they look around and the smashing black, white and red theme, and say, hey this girl has a good eye for home décor, or they taste my mildly, (on its way to becoming, really delicious meals,) and think, hey now, this girl has a sweet hand….(or at least will have one soon enough,) with a bit of practice….or maybe they like the area, I don’t know, but somehow, a few hours in and they start…..…

First it’s a confession to how they’ve always had a crush on me….riiighhtt…that’s why its taken you seven years to tell me

Then it’s the your amazing and hot…why don’t you have a boyfriend???

Then it’s the…..I’m crazy about you and if you want we can have a go at this…

Or as was the case yesterday, a sudden, un prepared lean in……

Yikes….

How do you tell someone, whom you really value as a friend, that your just not into them in that way??

have these occasions occurred at the new pad? if so then maybe its because the guy finally got a chance to talk to you alone in a comfortable situation where he couldnt or wouldnt feel as embarassed about voicing his feelings.

Say it just like that. :)

Secret agents can handle the truth. But then again none of the above are secret agents or you'd be all over it.

Radmila said...

jdid is sweet and kind in his analogy.
I myself an a cynic, and therefore think that these boys see a woman who they may be able to "piggyback" on.

I think that you perceive that as well.

3? lol well fell free to toot your own horn and tell then to take a number :D

jdid is spot on. Sometimes it takes the right environment to help pull your feelings together.

Assuming all the things the men say about you are true and if you add the new place which is a symbol of stability and maturity, you have a recipe for men spilling their guts.

If all else fails, grab them in the crotch and see what they say!

Holla.

Cranky always finds herself in the most "sitcomest" of situations.

Oh.. yes Cranky... you can use my new word "sitcomest".

Id and ego! said...

CRANKY NOOOOOOOOOOOOO stop revealing secrets, we beg you. The "I have always had a crush on you" line is golden and has always been a WMD in our pickup arsenal. Plus in our cases coming from being shy immature ids and egos growing up we often did have crushes on girls we now get to see when we go back home.

As to the lean in; sometimes we are just leaning in to give you a 'friendship kiss'. If it leads to something better...well that is on you!

The Cali J agrees with us too, he is just too chicken to say it.

(Thanks for stopping by our newest blogging endeavor...tell your friends).

You can always just burn the food and leave a moldy cup out ;-) That should cure 'em.

Chris said...

What? You've never watched When Harry Met Sally?

Crankyputz said...

Fiyah...sitcomest...i like....

You should have seen me fall backward onto the couch..that was funny...

Id and Ego: We luve the new blog...we as in the rest of us that are forced to live in Cranky's mind....

OE: True is true

Jdid: Words of Wisdom....I still think its my frugal yet fabulous decorating taste.....they think here's a good investment, a girl that'll maybe keep our moeny...

BB: Grabbing them on the crotch may give them hope....the point is to not give them hope....however the next time I see a hottie.....going straight for the crotch...thanks

Chris: Luved H&S, Still Luv H&S, but really H was short but witty....I need Witty!!

Grant Miller said...

You know...I've felt this way about you for awhile. But, I didn't know what to say...I just can't hide these feelings anymore.

Crankyputz said...

GM: Um your not at the condo...your at the blog...no one falls for me through the blog...jeez get with it man!

EmmaK said...

The easiest way to do it is just to say, "I find you attractive too, but I don't want to risk getting sexually involved and spoiling our friendship."

GC said...

I think it's because they sense a bed is close by. . . in their subconscious of course because they are too much of gentlemen to really think that declaring their undying devotion to you would put them on the fast track to the full tour of your place.

SimplEnigma said...

Not feeling Jdid and Bush's explanation. It's fishy...bout comfortable. A dude who really likes a chick doesn't wait for a comfortable situation to tell her how he feels - some other dude could move in and take his spot in the meantime.

All of a sudden...where he get this burst of courage from? Steups...

You're beautiful and I'm sure many people have crushes on you. But just to be on the safe side, show him the water bill and ask him if he'd be willing to pay half and see if he still has a crush.

Mad Bull said...

Were any of the three in long standing relationships which they are no longer in now? Perhaps they were holding back because they were with someone else, you know? Now that they are free agents once again, they feel that they can acknowledge the attraction they feel for you, see where it goes.

What? None of the three were in such relationships? Nearness of a bed then, as G.C. said.
