If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you would have noticed I write a lot about love, relationships, being single, getting over heat break etc. In this article, I’m going to focus on that part where you’re not really in love or in a relationship, but you’re not completely oblivious to the members of the sex you are attracted to either.
Certain parts of your brain, which have remained dormant so long, start waking up and you’re reminded of the havoc they can wreak on your thought processes. You greet jealousy and pining like your friends from high school, and they remind you of how you never REEALLY got along with them but hung out with coz you had no say in the matter.
I don’t know how it works for most people, but here’s a very brief insight to the inner workings of Kirin in such a situation
Heart: eeeee! There is a possibility of seeing the object of my affection in person today! I wonder whether they’re excited about seeing me!!!
Brain: Wait wait wait. Who is this person again? Why are you getting excited? Why would they be interested in you?
Body: WTF brain, have you SEEN ME? If they’re not attracted to THIS, then something is wrong with them. I’d be excited to see me! I mean, LOOK AT ME! I’m GORGEOUS!
Brain: Heart, body’s giving me the impression that another person in the equation would be pretty pointless. At least we know we won’t be dealing with feelings of rejection based on physical appearance.
Heart: GUUUUUUUUUUUUUUYS seriously. Come on.
*at social gathering*
Heart: OOOOOOOH. There they are! I wonder if they’ve noticed I’ve arrived
Body: They’re blind if they haven’t noticed you yet.
Brain: It’s beginning to bother me how much you care about your existence being validated by another person you barely know. Are you going to try and flirt? Do you want a reminder of how you usually flirt?
Heart: Shut up. OMGOMGOMGOMG HERE THEY COME!
*generic conversation in which Kirin most definitely makes an ass of herself*
*person walks away*
Rest of the event carries on as usual, only it’s like a sixth sense has been awakened, where I seem to be aware of that person’s movements and actions. THEN you notice them talking to people of the sex they might be attracted to….
Heart: Guys, they’re TALKING to other potential interests! WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!?!? What if I’m one of the many in rotation?
Brain: relax. They’re talking. As people do to OTHER people. WHY ARE YOU NOTICING THESE THINGS KIRIN? How many times do I have to REMIND you that I AM BRAIN. And I AM in charge of THINKING. You are HEART. You are in charge of FEELING. And right about now, I HAVE A SPECIAL MEME FOR YOU
Stomach: Guys, when are we eating? I’m hungry.
