Can we go back?
Back to a time when men called you up and asked you out, and not sent you a DM?
Can we go back to a time when men crushed on you, and Carved out the time to send you little love notes to let you know they liked you? Love notes to you, and only you, not 15 other women via inbox trying to see who’d take the bait.
Can we go back to sitting outside in the park, talking, laughing, enjoying the night, the stars, getting to know one another?
Can we go back to talking on the phone into the wee hours of the night, (you hang up, no you hang up, on 3 hang up), not wanting the conversation to end, smiling so hard that your cheeks hurt, loving the way each other’s voices sound so much that the conversation lingers in your head the entire next day, causing you to smile uncontrollably at the thought of it?
What happened to the simplicity of it all? Nowadays folks wanna skype, face time, Marco Polo. Men would rather send you a text that says “1 of 15” than to call you. They’d rather send you a peen pic than ask you out where they can sit across from the table and admire you for a few hours.
I just want to throw it back, throw it back to the good ole days. The fun days of “love licks” (well maybe not, they call that abuse nowadays), but the days of knowing without a doubt that someone liked you and only you. The days when falling in love was FUN, not dangerous. Maybe one day it’ll come back in style!!!!
