Okay I was really hoping that I wouldn’t have to write a longer PSA about this but apparently people are fucking stupid tonight.
As always, important shit in bold.
Tonight’s subject: Making advances on others
Some of you are apparently under the impression that just because you are attracted to someone and want to bone them, the party in question feels the same way towards you! Because surely, if you have a crush, then there’s no way in fuck that they don’t have a crush on you too.
Take that impression and set it on fire until it is ash and then bury the ashes and never think about that impression ever again.
You should never assume that just because you like someone that they automatically like you back because of your feelings. I fail to understand why that even needs to be said.
You can generally tell when you like someone and they like you back! Maybe you guys flirt together, maybe you guys are close friends(like clooooooose close), maybe you have heart-to-hearts or what the fuck ever.
You can also tell when someone doesn’t like you back. Hell, you can tell when someone doesn’t like you at all.
Here is a list of behaviors that constitute dislike, in case it’s unclear
- They’re hostile
- They reject your advances
- They turn down your flirts/compliments
- They say no
And that’s just a select few.
If you’re interested in someone and they clearly aren’t interested, do the smart thing and back the fuck off.
Otherwise you’re being a fucking prick.
And nobody likes pricks.
tl;dr, respect what your interest wants or doesn’t not want. If someone consistently turns you down and is only as polite to you as they need to be, it’s probably time to stop chasing.
