Big Mouth Frog


(names have been changed to protect the innocent)

So, I'm out with this guy...let's call him Jerome.  Jerome and I are out having a great time.  All of a sudden Jerome starts telling me a story about a girl he's been seeing.  

Ummm...awkward, but go ahead.  

They are just friends- AKA, he's been put in the friend zone.  They've never even kissed, he says. 

Right.  Continue.

She sends him a link to a music video where Blake Shelton is doing all sorts of romantic things for Miranda Lambert and ends up burning down the house.  And he asks me what it could mean.  

I offer up that she might want him to be romantic with her.  

Well, he says, he does nice things for her.

Continue awkwardness, please!  My name must be Delilah or Love Letters to Kellie.  

He doesn't like her, but is confused by her.  

"Why don't you ask her what she meant by it?"  
*interject soapbox*  If more people would ask each other what they mean and want instead of going outside the relationship, maybe relationships would be stronger.  

He insists that he doesn't like her or care.  

"Well, you do if you're mentioning her to another girl."  

Silence.  

Dear, dear gentleman: Please...and I beg of you, please do not ask women for their opinions on other women unless you concretely intend on them being nothing more than a counselor or close friend.  How would you feel if she asks you about her "friend" Rocky or her lover, Maximus?  It would be quite an ouchie, wouldn't it?  The Golden Rule!  If we all lived by it, the world would indeed be a better place.
