So, I am single. Been this way for a while now. A bachelor’s lifestyle, it seems is my destiny. But I want to turn that around and this is where I hit a snag. I do NOT have that much experience talking to someone I’m interested in. It seems like every time I do I turn into my middle school self and stammer and stutter over my words. This perplexes me because I spend so much time on Twitter being funny, clever, and witty with my words. It seems like when talking to a potential mate my tongue is fighting back against my brain. But it’s not just my tongue giving me troubles! My whole body seems in open revolt. I begin to sweat, my mouth becomes dry, I have a hard time moving my body around stationary objects. Infatuation basically turns my body into that of a malfunctioning robot. So for this week’s “Hashtag, You’re It” I wanted to seek help from you guys with the hashtag #HowIDealWithACrush We did really well and trended for over 6 hours in the U.S. But the more and more I read, the more it became apparent that my situation is not that different than everyone else. Love makes fools of all of us. There seems to be no way to act cool around a crush. So if you ever see me acting like a blabbering, half drunk robot around you……maybe take it as a compliment. In the mean time check out the top 15 list below and join me every Tuesday at 11 EDT for the next “Hashtag, You’re It”
Stammer unintelligibly for 12 minutes or so. You know, play it cool
