I Hurt You Because I Loved You
Until 30 years later.
Facebook is wonderful for reuniting with friends and well, 'thought-to-be-friends'. "Mikey" contacted me through Facebook. He said, "You look beautiful, how've you been?" I immediately thought he may have mistaken me for somebody else, because back in grammar school, I was a tomboy with messy hair and boy's clothes, aside from us being complete enemies. I was awkward and a bit of a misfit. I always thought that was the reason why he was taunting me that day on the bus.
"I just wanted to let you know that I always had a crush on you in school."

So whether speaking platonically or intimately, why do some people choose the harder road? Why do they like to test the waters so to speak? Why on earth would someone want to hurt someone they love? And this 'hard-to-get' strategy - does that even work? Has it ever worked? Or is it one big myth? Do we want what we can't have? And if so, why would we want to be with someone who clearly doesn't want to be with us? Is it that our hearts don't know better, or do we just want to challenge ourselves on a whole new emotional level? What do you think?
