I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

So you’ve met this new cutie.

Maybe they’re a friend of a friend who you followed on a whim. Maybe they’re a classmate you don’t have much in-person interaction with. Maybe they’re a random mutual. But as you watch their stories for their good taste in TikToks and scroll through 2 years of selfies, you start to think — passively — that they’re kind of cute.

It’s not a full-blown crush by any means, but especially right now in quarantine, you’re open to some innocent flirtation. Hey, we all need a pastime — and validation helps.

Your double-taps on their thirst traps turn into heart-eye emoji comments, which turn into DM slides that turn into coy innuendo. And you’re feeling good about the fun of it all — you look forward to their messages, but aren’t pressed if they leave you on read. Then suddenly things take a more serious turn: They message you their phone number and ask if you’re open to a date. They want to take this next level.

Now you feel stuck: How do you reject them when it’s totally valid that they think you two have a thing going? Wait — did you actually lead them on?
