I know I should’t lie. For many many ethical reasons, lying is not good thing. I know. But what do you do when a kid in second year just won’t stop asking you, his super senior, out? I mean, I find that to be quite unethical. Being a cougar is NOT on my bucketlist.
The back story? Short story short, he is an engineering student in his second year. Cute, tall, goofy smile. He would totally make a perfect younger brother. But there lies the problem. He wants me to think of him as a man, as opposed to anything else really.
For many reasons, like him being younger and uninteresting to me, dating him just sounds painful. I’d rather shoot my foot. Almost each time I see him now, he asks if I would like to have a meal with him. I’d been able to come up with impromptu lies each time he asked, but today, my mind went stupid on me. I found myself saying,
“I don’t eat anymore”.
I smiled and rushed off, on my not-so-very-merry way. I couldn’t even bring myself to look back at him.
Moral of the story: still trying to figure that bit out.
