A Ball Bigger Than I Can Catch

A Ball Bigger Than I Can Catch

“I never thought I would understand the meaning of “feel like entering the ground” nor do I feel like I need to know that it is more than just an idiom. But I literally felt like entering the ground this very minute! It is never an issue for me to deal with rejection but “this was a bigger ball”.

 It all was a week after I joined the academy, I got blown out, a literal blow out.
 Isn’t it normal to set a goal for entering a new school or any new setting? All I did was to set a reasonably achievable goal of exploring and expanding my horizon. This was a general theme that includes exploring my academic, professional and personal potentials to the limit. You would agree with me that trying out a relationship with someone in the school is also exploring my potential of interpersonal and romantic relationship potential.
 This was how I approached a girl in my class asking her out to explore a relationship with her, oblivious to the fact that she is a real She-D****. I picked her number from the group after seeing her amiable, graciously sumptuous and beautiful person in the class.

 I started with the normal introduction after an adequately delayed response to my “Hy”, we exchange pleasantries so I set the ball rolling by asking to know her more, we exchanged real cute pictures and I told her my intention of exploring an affair with her. I experienced a delay in response, but I thought it was just a normal ” got other things to do situation ” so I left my phone and also went to do some other things.
 Getting back on my phone was after about the hours later in the night around 11:30 pm, the first thing I noticed was that there is a noticeable increase in the number of message in the class main group, being a normal human I went straight to the group to check the gist of the conversation.

 I never thought I would understand the meaning of “feel like entering the ground” nor do I feel like I need to know that it is more than just an idiom. But I feel like entering the ground this very minute! It is never an issue for me to deal with rejection but “this was a bigger ball”.

 This lady blew me out in the open she sent my picture to the main group and first asked if anybody knew me, a couple of people responded in the affirmative then she started saying all that happened, highlighting the fact that I did not know who to go to, that she is more than what I can imagine footing bills for.

She then analysed my worth to buttress my point, saying the worth of my two pairs of shoes and a Pam is not even worth buying the cheapest bag in her collections. Another person even said I have strategically created a set of uniforms with less than a dozen clothes, trousers and top counted individually. A lot was said in the group that I don’t want to recount.

The crux of it all was that I not only failed to get a girlfriend in the class at my first trial I got disgraced and embarrassed.

 After all the rounds of critical remarks and analyses, I was then asked by the same She-D**** to man up and talk, not through DM but in the group.
 I have been holding my phone after reading the last message for approximately 5minutes and have not typed anything.
