I almost connected with my soul-mate today. On Facebook.
I got a friend request from a girl named Jenny Hall. She looked familiar, so I accepted it. It wasn’t long before we had a conversation that has left me, I’ll admit, a little confused. And hurt.
The conversation started with her thanking me for accepting her friend request, and then it got deep. And then… nothing.
It still hurts a little bit to talk about…
Okay, it was at this point that I started to feel bad. I mean, this girl was really opening up and being vulnerable with me. I knew I needed to be real with her, too, or our bosom-buddy friendship would never work.
So, I took a risk. I opened up. I shared.
She never wrote back.
Guys, rejection hurts.
I don’t know if I’ll ever hear from Jenny/Sharon again, but I do know this: our conversation this afternoon was special. And she is special.
It’s like every single day I learn a new lesson. A lesson in vulnerability. A lesson in relationships.
This is one lesson I won’t soon forget.
Also, does anyone have any idea what omo iya mi means? Is it code for “consider your account hacked”? Is it Russian for “I am going to murder your family with a machete?” Should I be worried about something here?
What’s that you say? I should be more careful with friend requests? Weird notion, but I’ll try it.
*sigh* Life is so full of important lessons….
