In my opinion, feelings and emotions are gross. Most days I try to act like I don't have many if any at all for that matter. Yes, I still have a heart, (I promise) but the truth is I'm just not an emotional person. This has carried over into my love life and has had a pretty big effect on the outcome of a lot of my relationships. Some people love it, some people hate it. Regardless of which side you're on, here are seven things to know about dating someone who's not emotional.
1. We tend to not get jealous very easily.
Go out with your friends, have friends of the opposite sex, make plans that don't always involve me. I promise I really don't care.
2. We don't sweat the little things.
Can't talk tonight because you're busy? That's fine, do what you need to do babe. Got distracted doing something at work? Don't worry about it, I understand.
3. Sometimes we suck at communicating.
If you don't hear from me for a day or two, I'm really sorry. Chances are I honestly just got distracted or really don't really feel like talking to anyone.
4. We might push you away.
Opening up to or getting close to people makes me want to cringe. Honestly, you'll probably have to be pretty persistent with me, because I will try to back off.
5. When we say we care we mean it.
If I say I love you, then yes, I do really love you. I might not always be the best at showing it, but I'm not gonna bother saying it if I don't mean it.
6. We show we care in our own way.
I might not tell you how much you mean to me every single day, but I'll always tell you to drive safe and text me when you get there.
7. We do still have feelings.
Big surprise I know, but yes I do still have feelings. I still want to feel like you care, and sometimes my feelings do get hurt.
Finding someone who truly understands and accepts your cold and dead heart can be hard sometimes, but when you finally do, I promise it's pretty awesome.
