The Awkward blog entry!

I am just going to come right
out and say this… “I like you.” Yes, YOU. We are strangers but I have made it a
point to “casually” add you on every social networking site you have ever
joined. Except Instagram, I found it too pompous for me to use (and yet I have
a vivid mental picture of every meal you share!) 

Rumi, bitches!
You’re not different, you are a
typical 22 year old boy/man (I’m not sure which you are) and I like that. I know
this because you tweet about politics, music, friends and life in general. I constantly
agree with your thoughts (well those that you share) and that counts for
something… in this overly disappointing world, it does count. You are
respectful to strangers on the internet and you do so with such a remarkable
grasp of the English language (grammar and all.) But above all you are passionate. You
are passionate about life and everything you embark on: your studies, your
faith, your friends, your culture, your family and even the weather. Sometimes
when you have a bad day and you are brave enough to let the world know, I try
to cheer you up. You reply with this effortless witty humour that you often
share with strangers, such as myself. But I can’t be just another stranger. You
address me by my name and I fight the urge to do a backflip (even though I can’t
physically perform a backflip, i am tempted to defy this to do so on days
like this.) I can only assume that your parents raised a gentleman. From what I
gather your family is well off and yet you come off as hardworking and modest. You
have an amazing sense of fashion (Exhibit A: Facebook) but it helps that you are
painfully good looking. I admire how social you are without letting yourself
become a social media whore. I like to think that you ask our mutual friends
about me. That you silently follow my blog and memorise the quotes I share
daily in an effort to spread knowledge and love. But most of all I like to
think that you must crave to know me as I crave to know you.
You are not without your flaws,
I know this because that is reality. Speaking of reality, I must admit that I never
want to meet you. It helps that we are in different countries but one can never
control how the universe works. The amount of energy I put out might just draw
you to me or vice versa (because I do believe, on some level, that this is
mutual.) You see, people have been disappointing me of late… more than my
neurosis can handle. So I know that this cruel world is bound to fuck this up
if I met you and you terribly disappoint me. So, for now, I am content with
this. With reading your words and opening incognito tabs of your online photos
and knowing that someone like you exists.

    Sounds sad and a little melancholic but very deep. Nice piece. Let's pray and hope he doesn't read this Blog post because if he does, he is definitely going to pursue you. No question about that. All the best though 🙂
