In this episode, we talk about treating others the way you want to be treated.
The very first time that I was hit on by a gay man, remember it was at a club, I was with two other friends, I was actually with a friend that I worked with and her husband and we were in Washington D.C.and we were all there on an internship at the World Bank.
So at this club, we're kind of hanging out, we're dancing and This one guy walks up to me and just look at me very sincere in the eye and asked if I want to dance with him. And I think that was one of the first times that I've ever encountered this kind of situation. So I didn't know how to react. But the way that I reacted was probably not in the best way but it's probably in the way that most people would expect. I felt insulted.
I was like why does this person think that I'm gay? And I don't know it just like that instant feeling like it just it was I didn't really know how to interact or how to express whatever I was thinking because I didn't even know what I was thinking. Anyway, long story short, I was like no, I shook my head and just said no and looked at him like you know, "Are you crazy, Why are you talking to me pretty much like that?"
But then as he walked away, he kind of like put his head down and he kind of walked away like he was moping and it was so sad and it made me remember all the times that I've tried to build up the courage to try to ask a girl to dance and I have no idea what this guy was thinking, but you know, I'm guessing he was like building up his courage to ask me to dance and then I just said no, and he has no idea why I said no, but he thinks I'm gay and he thinks another gay person said no or whatever and he got upset.
So I started thinking about that, felt really bad and I didn't want the other person to be upset. That wasn't my intention at all. So that kind of feeling kind of stuck with me, like I thought about that because I can definitely relate, I can definitely relate in terms of walking up to people and trying to get their attention you know, and hoping that they like you. So this was like where this person was that and I felt really, really bad. However, I did tell myself that the next time I'm in this kind of situation that I will handle it a very different way.
So funny enough about an hour ago I ran into this group of people that were just coming back from a party and it was three Women and one dude and I'm walking around with Rory and I guess I give off a gay vibe or something because I have a Pomeranian and I also like to dress pretty extravagant, but I don't know whatever it is. Um he, this guy just started hitting on me and I actually thought it was pretty amusing, but you know, I just told him I was like, you know, I'm straight, but thank you, I'm flattered. And as he thanked him and I think I reacted the way that I would want someone else to react to me if I were in that situation, I don't know. But anyways this guy, he, I told him, yeah, I'm straight and I'm flattered and thank you. And he responded, yeah, that's what, that's what they all say. I thought that was pretty funny, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Boom. Bam. I'm out.
