I'm on anon because this is really embarrassing, but... Have you ever been approached romantically here on Tumblr? I've been following you for some time now and you seem such a genuinely nice, intelligent, well-versed, and educated guy that not being proposed seems highly unlikely. Also, this is probably the stupidest thing I've ever asked anyone, so just ignore me while I bang my face on the table. Please forgive me. I mean well.
Every so often I do get propositions, or pointed inquiries, Anon. I know you mean well, it doesn’t come off as stupid, promise :) But I try to keep a certain level of separation between my internet life and my brickspace life, so I tend to gently discourage it just because I don’t deal with it well, not because I find it at all creepy or uncomfortable.
Also I need you to remember that what you see online is my curated image – it’s what I choose to share. So you don’t get a lot of my social awkwardness, my anxiety, or my other numerous flaws, because they’re not things I want to talk about or remember. I am not quite the gem I seem online, I imagine. :D Always remember that we see our own blooper reel but everyone else’s highlights reel. :)
