I don't know if narrative is an appropriate classification for this, but it kind of morphed into one. This mix started out as me feeling sorry for myself because I continue to allow this guy to hurt my feelings. I HAD kind of considered him a friend, but I'm trying to rethink that. I haven't known him for very long and when we first met he was super cool and he made me laugh and we flirted a LOT and we had lots of fun. Then something happened and now he's totally different. He tends to ignore me and crazy though it seems, it hurts my feelings. But I can't help this completely undeserved, ill advised affection I have for him. It'd be easier to get over it if I didn't keep catching him watching me when I see him out, but not in a stalker kind of way- in that forlorn way that says I screwed up royally but I'm a guy and I'm too stupid to admit it so I'll just treat you like crap.

Anyway... this mix ended up with a kind of "I love him, I hate him, I'm over him" feel to it, at least for me. I'm actually pretty pleased with it. The title is from the Big Head Todd song and actually applies to the mix and to my life right now. This whole "acquaintanceship" is pretty much made up of us working our ways around each other. I have a crush on him, I'm about 95% sure that he likes me too, but neither of us is going to say anything. It's all very high school. We just spend our time together trying not to pay attention to the other while simultaneously attempting to attract the other's attention. It's really a sad situation now that I see it in print. But that's how it is. Thanks for letting me vent, kids.

Very nice! I think "Walking On The Spot" by Crowded House would have worked, too. Hang in there...
