Just a quick question.
I think its very funny how quickly perceptions formulate as soon as 2 individuals come into contact with one another. By contact I mean verbal, physical, and even just mental awareness that the other is there. The other day I was sitting with my girlfriend when she let me know that a certain young lady did not like me, not even 24 hours after meeting her.
She said that I was "trying her" and was apparently ready to "square up" (in my words to the young lady)
Needless to say I had no clue. In my efforts to open the door to someone who I had never met, I unleashed a few harmless jokes that led to the girl not liking me.
In the conversation that followed with my girlfriend, I was told that the people in my local environment generally do not take well to that kind of approach because I "came on too strong". My question is...
What is it about these people "in my local environment" (school)
What makes them tick?
