Sorry that I'm a jackass.

Why do people continue to pursue love interests with me when I obviously don't share the feelings that they do...?

And how don't people get that when I say, in response to "I miss you and want to see you", "That's nice <3" that I don't really share that feeling? Like seriously! Do I just attract all the ugos in Vermont or something? Like, go have fun with someone closer to your stature. I'm a fickle person with standards, sorry. I probably sound like a douchebag, but I'm just someone who knows what I want. I don't settle for something I see as inferior and I work to get what I want. I wanted to attend university, so I worked to get there. Granted it's easier for me than most people, but in any circumstance, I would have strived, no matter the cost or hardship. I don't borrow money from people, because I don't feel comfortable doing that. So, when I want something and can't afford it at that point in time, I don't buy it. I wanted a damn Subaru, so I worked for it. I don't expect things to just to fall in my lap, although a lot has. My parents pay for my gas, insurance and repairs. They're paying for, at least, my first year of college (Vermont in state is soooooo expensive too. We're paying like 28,000 a year, for a public institution). Even still, when I can afford it, I pay for my car, and I plan on sharing the burden of college (to be fair, a lot of their income is derived from descendant's trusts, so it's just as much my money, as it is theirs).

What I'm getting at is that, even though I'm a total douchebag, I have standards and those standards aren't a bad thing. And when I communicate that I'm not interested, I'm not interested. So, Billy, Dylan, and Danny, fuck off. You obviously want something more than friendship from me, so until you reconcile your feelings for me, then leave me alone.

Sincerely, the douchebag with standards,
Thomas.

Well...

Over time, you will be able to determine whether your standards are too high. I mean, not being interested in people is pretty instinctual, so you're under no obligation to return feelings you don't share. But, if over time, no one is meeting your standards, you'll have to reconcile whether you prefer being alone with standards or whether they need to be reviewed against the evidence.

It's not that no one meets

It's not that no one meets my standards - a few people do. It's just at this time in my life, the only people actively pursuing me are undesirable... Burlington gets pretty unexciting when the 10,000 university students leave. And I'm tired of these kids trying to get with me!

Besides, high school in Vermont doesn't exactly create a good environment for finding attractive dudes that are gay... But I'm going to college, so Wooooooh! Decent boys, here I come!

McGill and UBC were on par

McGill and UBC were on par with UVM, but McGill accepted me for physics, not biology (that was my fault - I fucked my application up). And UVM had the nicer dorms sooooooooooo... UVM it is.

Are you seriously

Are you seriously insinuating that I'm equatable to a slut?

Because I'm sorry that I'm attractive. I'll admit it. I'm fit, I have good bone structure, I know how to style hair, I understand clothing, I have nice eyes, nice teeth and a nice smile. My parents cultivated me well. I'm well bred, with good manners. I come from a family of good society and relation. I speak English fluently and well, I possess satisfactory grammar skills, I have decent diction, and I have a rather developed palate. Overall, I'm not a trashy slut. I'm just hot, and going somewhere in life. And not from a penal colony.

So maybe, just maybe, you should think the next time you judge me.

Don't you think...

the comment was made with a smile :)

btw... I have no doubt that you're looking forward to a great future.. including a bf (eventually) possessing matching or complementing qualities!

Considering the fact that

Considering the fact that I've no real sustained relationship with Uncertain, I don't see how there's grounds for such a comment.

Joking about promiscuity just isn't okay with me.

Well...

Uncertain did violate a cardinal rule of the Internet, he didn't put a smiley face after it.
