Someone said this to me. In real life. Over the phone. And it was meant as a compliment.
It actually happened two weeks ago, and I just remembered it last night. It was one of those moments where I was so happy and grateful I was not 16 or 17 because I would then have been devastated whereas at this point in my life I first thought this was hilarious, and then was like - uh, wth? No. Child, you are too young, and too foolish. And either you’ve read The Game and need to get a grip, or you just need some assistance. I told a few friends, and one of the best reactions was,
“They need so much training.”
The second best was thus:
dude, mr. darcy happened once. and it was all the world needed.
"she is tolerable, i suppose. not enticing enough to tempt me."
-mr. d on lizzy in early chapter. see where that went.
