Time to rein in those pheremones...

Yes, you lucky devils, it's time for another Princess-style rant!

You know what I want to know? How someone can concoct some imaginary notion of sexual chemistry!

Perhaps I am blind to the incredible powers of the pheremones I am letting off... which are apparently directed just at you, because as far as I know, I haven't exactly sealed a reputation as some massive tease.

Yeah, I smiled and said it was nice talking to you. Apparently my sense of ease was a huge mistake. Maybe because I actually believed your artificial efforts at conversation had actually progressed to genuine attempts of friendship, rather than some act of manipulation. Maybe because I thought you had heard me answer your question about my relationship-- you know, when I said it was going great and I was really happy? Maybe because you are one of the most inappropriate people on the planet for my pheremones to be wafting towards, and this should be insanely obvious to even a horny 15 year old?

The worst thing is my sense that all of this has absolutely nothing to do with me, but is rather an attempt to turn me into a pawn in some complex game that you feel the need to play with everyone in your life. I think that more plausible than the idea that there is some connection between us that I missed is the idea that you may actually have regressed to high school and literally made something this preposterous up. I can't even tell if you are hoping this gets back to me, or are just waiting for an explosion of conflict to erupt before you for your entertainment.

Hmmm, need more context before I can comment fully - was this some random at a bar? Or was it a "friend"? And I take it he propositioned you directly, which is why you're upset?

You are definitely a bit of a flirt, which is no bad thing, and probably do give out your fair share of pheromones. But lots of guys will interpret this differently depending on how insecure their egos are...

Ignoring is the best revenge.

like john prine said, some humans ain't human, some people ain't kind.

i'm glad your real relationship is going really well, though.

Ant said...

Oh hang on - just re-read this: someone is spreading rumours? That can be serious malevolent shit when it gets going, to be dealt with in the same way as the phone-stalker - head on with a big show of strength.

Has Charlie Sheen been up to his old tricks again?

psychgrad said...

Ant -- how do you know that she is a flirt?

PP - I hope this guy gets a version of your rant.

Give him hell Princess!

Kick him in the nuts :)

Some people just like to go get that forbidden fruit. Doesn't matter if they like it or not, they just want it. Airam said it best, ignoring is the best revenge.

Beth said...

Whoever he is - don't give him the satisfaction of an open conflict, of erupting - unless he's spreading a nasty, vicious rumour.
Do your best not to play his sick, crazy game.

I previousl had a situation on my hands that could produce this rant (and many more); and all I can say is I feel you, my good friend. I totally feel you, and you are right to be pissed. So right.

Ewww. Slap him!

I get this all the time. I'm a chick, I'm nice, and I'm polite.

So inevitably, that means that I'm interested. I haven't figured out a way to portray this on stage, but it's definitely going in my standup.

Nice coming across your blog! I'm a standup comedienne blogging my way to stardom. Be sure to stop by and drop an insightful rant-like comment. (That seems to be your forte.) Hope to hear from you soon!

(PP - apologies in advance for talking about you in the third person...)

Psychgrad - because of the nature of her blogging and comments, which tend to have a slight sexual theme to them. A side-effect of that is slight flirtation, which I spot in her interactions (mainly ones she describes in her posts, rather than with other bloggers). I think this kind of flirting is harmless and really nice - it's the type that I generally use in life too. Appreciation of the opposite sex without being inappropriate - trouble is this can, and frequently is (women get it wrong too), mis-interpreted.

libby said...

jeez this guys sounds like a class act.

i agree with michelle, give him a swift kick in the nuts!

psychgrad said...

ant - I must be oblivious...or you're nuts (or both). Mind you, I don't really read women's blogs with any consideration of flirtatiousness.

PP - what do you think? Do you consider yourself a bit of a flirt?

I wouldn't call you a flirt. You just have a sly knack for entendre and innuendo, and you know it and use it, fully realizing that coming from a woman's perspective, guys WILL react to it, end of story.

Not that I want to get involved with any arguing over you and your blog. You could be a guy messing with us for all we know!

Of course you not... But you know what I mean. A grain of truth, a grain of salt. This blog could be an experiment. It's your world you've created here; we just babble and scribble like puppets on your string.

Peace out, Princess.
