Yellow head

A Woman Saying No

Did finally ask the lovely Justine out, but got a definite no. I'd heard that she would be going up to the hospital to see an inpatient there. This is near where I live, of course, so I asked if I could tag along for the lift. I asked her on the journey there.

The whole situation was awkward as hell. She dithered, saying that she didn't have the time to see me due to pressure of work. It's never easy to turn someone down if your not interested in them, and I could see her struggling to find a way of not hurting my feelings. Finally, she just told me that she was very sorry.

Well, faint heart never won fair maiden, and I can give myself credit for making the effort, when I find this kind of thing so difficult.

I'm feeling a bit down this evening, but I'm sure I'll be over it in a couple of days. I refuse to feel bad about it.
