stream of consciousness 3

because maybe you were attracted to their physical features

like maybe they had a perfect nose or something

but also maybe something perfect inside of them too

that you’re not sure of yet

you owe it to yourself as a human

to say “i’m committed to getting to know you”

you are not afraid of commitment

you are afraid of what you are going to miss

and maybe you’ve been calling it being picky or something like that

but maybe its not that at all.

stream of consciousness 1

treating people on dating apps like options at a dinner buffet

rather than people who might be worth getting to know for more than a three-hour period

but that is how it goes

so many opportunities that choosing isn’t necessary

you don’t have to commit to anything

you can just move on to the next person

and if you ask me

i think that maybe it isn’t really leaving your options open

but thinking you have too many options instead.
