Leading me on
I have never been one of those people who leads people on. I like to tell people what the situation is from early on. It’s not fair to them. I don’t like to play with the emotions of others. It’s cruel and mean-spirited, and I'd rather be cruel and mean-spirited to random people I see on the street.
Recently, I had to tell someone where we stood in our situation because I didn’t want it go the way it was headed. There were no hard feelings (sorta) and that was that.
Unfortunately, I get lead on all the time. I don’t like it, but there’s nothing I can do because I don’t know I’m being lead on. Because I like to think there’s some good in everyone, it never crosses my mind someone is an asshole (especially since I don’t know them, or haven’t known them for a while).
And, let me tell you, I’ve come across plenty of assholes in a very short while. Sadly, they’re not the kind I’m interested in.
So, I have to carry on, be lead on until someone with an ounce of honesty and respect can tell me what’s going on because I sure as hell don’t.
