“I’m commitment phobic and I actually like you. I want to text you all the time and eat you out for hours and cook you dinner.”
“Please do not over text me, I’m too busy.”
“I’m gonna do it right now.”
“That’s silly. I’m standing right here, and I refuse to respond.”
My phone vibrates, and I don’t touch it. He smiles at me. It’s very awkward. I have a giggle inside me that I’m hiding, for good reasons.
I look at him sternly, exhausted.
