This girl that I’ve never been friends with, much less talk to, has been around my life since I was 17 years old. I don’t mean stalking me or anything like that. Just around.
She’s… I believe 2-3 years older than me? Maybe 4. Honestly not sure.
And I initially met her because I became friends with her at-the-time boyfriend.
He and I became friends. Not really close, just messaging each other occasionally and we emailed a few times. Sure, I used to think he was generally cute but nothing more than that. I’m just not into asian guys. But now that I’m older, I can understand the misconception and when I was in high school I was a total flirt unapologetically, but I honestly meant no harm ever.
So I can understand where her initial dislike of me started. I remember she wrote me one time, maybe even a few times in the ask box back in the myspace days. Then later, I got a message from her on tumblr. It was a much nicer and enlightening message. I think she finally realized that I was being a silly and ignorant-to-life high schooler and meant no harm and maybe after seeing my tumblr she also saw that the person that went out to the shows back then was not everything I had to offer as a person.
And then years passed and I honestly forgot about her. Then recently she followed me on instagram. It took me a second to recognize who she was, but good ol’ memory kicked in.
So no, right now I don’t really understand why she followed me on instagram. I don’t think she’s being weird or creepy or anything of the negative sort. I really just don’t know haha
It’s just one of those things that happen in life that make you go
