“Oh great, here she comes...”

Abby was walking toward me. It’s not really that I hate her, but she is still in love with me. We dated for nine months over a year ago. The way she acts has just driven me away from her. Why does she still like me so much?! I mean really, I treat her like crap sometimes.

We did have a good relationship. It just kind of went away, once we started to fight over stupid and pointless things. I will always care for her, but I just don’t know that I could date her again. Look at her now, she acts like she’d do anything for me. Obviously she would worship me and do anything I wanted. That could be a good thing, but I just don’t know. Some of the things she does drive me crazy! For example she texts me all the time, freaking out about things I do. I just get so tired and annoyed with it.

I am not going to lie though; I don’t want her with another guy. I just have to keep my options open. When I am with her I can’t flirt or barely even talk to other girls without her getting jealous and mad. I enjoy talking and flirting with other girls way too much to give it all up now. She just wants us to have a serious relationship; I am just not ready for that now. If she would just leave me alone for a little bit, maybe someday we will have another chance. What draws me away from her is how obsessed she seems to be. I really would like to try dating her again, just not right now, maybe in another year or so.

The problem is that I can’t tell her this. Her knowing this could help her, but if I tell her then it is like a commitment or a promise to her. I would be committed to her again, but at this time I do not want to deal with a committed relationship. I also don’t want to hurt her more, because I could break that promise of dating again. I have hurt her more than enough times; she deserves better. In a way I have made it hard for her to move on and get what she deserves. I play games with her, sometimes I talk to her and lead her on, other times I completely ignore her. If only she would just be smart and stay away from me, then she could be happy. By telling her how I feel right now, I would just be getting her hopes up. What if I change my mind later on? What if I decide we shouldn’t date again? Abby could even find another guy in the time that she is waiting for me. I really don’t want her with another guy, yet I’m not sure that I want us to be together right now, and she really does deserve it. I guess I am kind of selfish…

For now I’m going to just keep ignoring her and see how it goes.

It is just the typical thought of guys in high school. They act no one really matters to them. And they can be complete jerks. I just liked how it sounded like a typical guy.
