Are you KIDding me?!

Friday, July 04, 2008

I was walking along the school grounds when a 6th grade boy approached me. I thought he was just being friendly so I converse with him with much gusto.
Here's how our conversation goes:

BOY: Hi miss, I'm Gerald..
ME: Hello! I'm..
BOY: I know you.. Gayla right?
ME: yah.. how come you know my name?
BOY: I've seen you around since last year.. You were sporting a short hair before..Now, its long already
ME: yah.. it's long already (smiles)
BOY: but it doesn't matter.. you're so beautiful..
ME: oh.....uhm....really? thanks...
BOY: yah.. Can I ask you a favor?
ME: sure..what is it?
BOY: Can I have your number?
ME: uhm... why?
BOY: So that I can court you!
ME: what?! Are you serious?
BOY: yah..

Man! that was really a shock for me! When I told a friend about this, she said that I'm so lucky because young boys think that I am still attractive. That means, I still look younger than my age is - I'm 21 by the way. Just like what they say: "May asim pa ako". But honestly? I don't feel lucky or happy about this. Yes, some part of me was amused about what the boy was saying and I do feel gratified but somehow a big part of me was thinking : Is that the trend nowadays among young ones? What is happening in our society nowadays?
I can still remember when I was still in that age, courtships and being in a relationship was a taboo in our playmate group. All we think about was friendship, Fun and the endless games. So you can just imagine, a 12 year old boy wants to court a 21 year old me? What does he know about courting anyways? And what does a 12 year old know about relationships?

I don't know about you but for me, it's just so weird.
