Set You Up, Set Me Off.
If there’s one thing I hate more than anything it’s when someone I know asks me to set him or her up with “someone I know”. So far this week…three completely different people have asked me to assist them. First of all, if IM single fuck makes you think I’m good at playing cupid, let alone have time to spare from my own man hunt?! Second of all, why would I want to?? What’s in it for me?
I’ll tell you what’s in it for me…. A mutha fucking headache! Y’all don’t understand how exhausting it is trying to come up with excuses as to why I won’t set you up. And to be honest, they aren’t even excuses. A lot of times I am reluctant to set people up with my friends because I know my friends too well and I know it won’t work out. I wouldn’t set you up for failure even if you beg me to introduce you so you can “give it a try”… fuck that. When that shit goes awry who is left dealing with the drama? ME! And what makes that even worse is the fact that if I’m a good friend to both of you, IM forced to pick sides and I don’t have time for all that.
Some good advice: Don’t ask a friend to set you up. If there’s someone you’re interested in and you just so happen to know one of their friends, approach their friend and inquire as to the status of your prospect…if you’re given a thumbs up, tighten ya game up and go for it…ON YOUR OWN… if they tell you no, drop it. There is always a reason as to why someone refuses to hook you up with a friend… a lot of times we want to let you down lightly or not admit some flaw in our friend, so don’t ask questions, take it for what it is! I, personally, am sick of everyone fucking all the same people, and the thought of all my friends fraternizing and fucking each other too puts me on suicide watch.
Do your own dirty work….with someone else’s friends!
