Honesty, the best things in life, and little white lies.
SO. Basically. Leaving a little broken heart behind when we return to the states from this little Caribbean island.
Poor little security gaurd…
The story isn’t really that important – nothing really happened. Some brief conversations, some flirting. Etc.
Important part: there was no intention behind it. And yet…
Security guard, when brought up to speed on the situation: "Well. I've just never felt this way before. I guess, well, I guess you aren't supposed to have the best things in life."
1. We should all strive for honesty in our actions and our words. Even when your heart is in the right place and you don't want to hurt anyone. You want them to feel good about themselves. What you need to remember is, if you want other people to be honest with you? About their intentions and their feelings? You need to be honest, too. Even if it means not making them feel reallyreally good about themselves. Because sooner or later, that shit can come back to bite you in the ass. Or call your hotel suite and ask when to pick you up. Whatever.
2. A couple of brief (we're talking 30 minutes max) conversations mean you've never felt this way before? Really? Yes, hot American girl who flirts. But... do you really know her? No. You don't. As evidenced by the fact that... she's not interested in you. Sorry, buddy. True story.
But. Does bring up interesting point about how people fall for things... why does this happen when it's not real? How do you tell the difference? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN??? OK... well. Just an important point to expand upon over some rum and some beach.
3. We should all remember: if someone really is really into you? They will find a way to hang out/make out with you. If this isn't happening? They really aren't really into you. Sorry. Also a true story.
4. Sometimes little white lies are a-ok. I'll even give you a for-instance. For instance, when you've been way too nice to, say, a smitten security guard, because you want to be nice and not hurt his feelings, sometimes your BFF telling him that your-sort-of boyfriend-called-that-night-and-now-things-are-complicated-and-nothing-should-happen-because-it-wouldn't-be-fair.... not such a terrible idea. As opposed to... well. Yeah. About all that. I'm... not.... allthatinterested. (... and not all that big of a white lie - DC has reappeared.... dun-dun-dunnnnnnn...)
Well... dear readers. What do you think? Honesty every time (I mean, once you find yourself with all that flirting biting you in the ass) or little white lies? Just on occasion and, for instance, when you're going to be leaving for good in a few days any way? (... yeah, about that Mr. Security Guard... what exactly were you expecting here?)
