I had an IM convo of substance with an old crush last night.
We briefly touched on why it never went anywhere.
How I tried to get at him but he wasn't having it.
He said he didn't want to corrupt me.
Said I'm too much of an angel.
After he typed that, I rolled my eyes to myself.
I seem to get that a lot.
As a matter of fact, I just wrote a song touching on this notion.
"Yes I was raised to be a good girl/But there's another part to my world
Not many have ever seen it/And that's the way I prefer to keep it"
I told him that perhaps my morals and values are stricter than most.
That doesn't mean it's not hard to keep them.
I'm not as pristine as I appear.
He said that when I told him I work with an organization for youth that promotes abstinence from sex, he knew he wasn't the right one for me.
Well thank you for your deduction and reasoning skills sweetie.
I'm sure you saved me from a lot of temptation and struggle.
It pays to be upfront and honest about who you are.
It can serve as a protection.
So I asked him what is it that he does that would corrupt me.
I don't believe I got a straight answer.
Somehow we ended up talking about how I've done the whole "bad boy" thing.
And in the process loosened up a little.
And when I say "loosened up", I mean got some experience under my belt.
I told him that this time I'm hoping for a "good boy" who I can loosen up a little.
Yep, give me a square.
I can work it from there.
All in all, it was a good convo.
