It's Not You, It's Me...

Why do people say this? I was trying to ignore some "hot dudes from Vampire Diaries" talk tonight and I started thinking of this. It may just be the worst rejection possible. I would like to know why it's used. Tell me I'm ugly or that you find me rude and obnoxious or that you don't think I'm good enough for you but not this. To me, this is just saying that you like everything about me, but you still don't like me. Which makes no sense and is infuriating.
"Awesome. I'm smart, funny and handsome but I'm still not right. That helps."
Just say it. I get that it's the polite way to turn someone down and that you may not want to hurt their feelings but it's also false hope. Because it really is something about them. But maybe that's just me. I do tend to over-analyze a lot of things.
Which would be a good reason to not want to be with me. That and my diabetes.


  1. What's sad is that I've used a variation of this line before.

  2. It's not really sad. I get why it's used, I would just rather be told what they don't like about me. Would make it easier, I think.
