I like sleeping alone. I like doing my thing. The “I don’t date” thing works really well for getting out of awkward boy situations. I have no interest in 99 percent of the boys who approach me. So it becomes my sort of get out of jail free card. I have a few boys that I am really close with and have been for years. They are all dateable. They would be my boyfriend in a hot second, if i just asked. I enjoy knowing that, sort of flirting with them, and hanging out with them when i feel so inclined. I sort of keep them around waiting for the day i grow out of this, the day I am ready to sleep in a bed next to someone every night. The day my ADD becomes under control and I am at least 90 percent sure I won’t cheat on them. The day has not yet come. Lately, I worry it won’t ever come.
A few months ago, I ended up in a cab with a boy I didn’t really know. I tried to introduce myself. He sort of hostilly nodded, “I know who you are. I am a friend of __________.” (more…)
Preface: For those that don’t know me, I am from Boston. That’s where i spent my entire childhood and college years. My “alleged” parents still live there.
I receive this email last night:

So I got into chatin with him and I was like yeah i have a mag and blah blah and then he said you were his daughterâ€¦I kinda flipped. I have wanted to interview you!

????????Logically I forward this email to my mom and this is the conversation that resulted:
Me-OMG these people are like Bernadette Peters and that dude from Rocky Horror in Annie, right?
Mom-LOL Me-This is so weird. I am so confused.
Mom-Oh I didnâ€™t tell you. Dad was in Brooklyn yesterday with the woman he is having the affair with. It was probably him and his mistress. Me-What? Really?
Mom-Sarah, I was kidding. Me-Oh.
