That feeling when you’re watching somebody from a distance and you are completely mesmerized. Every move, every facial expression, every gesture, every single reaction to the environment around them- just everything that they do somehow makes you fall even more in love. I used to feel this way about someone. It didn’t work out.
I went to a dance club last night and stood on the sidelines, 100% sober and regretful of my decision to attend. I watched people interact with one another. I watched people dance. I watched people drink. I watched young men and women flirt and attempt to attract eachother with every trick in the book. I felt nothing towards these people. I did not even feel a glimmer of the sentiment that I had once felt towards someone else.
Those that know my situation, which are very few, have advised me to just allow time to pass. But what do I do in the meantime?
