Last Friday, I was not having a particularly good day. I was busy, I was tired and I was irritated.
I have been chatting to someone that I met on twitter and we have since then become Facebook friends. On Friday afternoon, I received a message from him to say that he had sent me a package and that he was just giving me a “heads up”.
Being my usual self, I thought he was joking…. that is, until the package arrived.
I honestly do not know what led to being sent the package. (Don’t get me wrong – I do like it and mostly, the thought that goes with it). I do not flirt and I am my sarcastic self with everyone I meet. I have gone through our chats to see if I had given any indication that I was flirting or interested and our conversations are platonic – things that I would discuss with colleagues or even a stranger that I may meet. No personal details that I would discuss with friends.
And me, being me, I over-analyse and overthink everything.
Why did he send the package?
Did I give him the wrong impression? If so, what was it that I said?
He seems to be quite a nice guy and someone who I would become friends with – but who just sends a “stranger” a package without expecting anything in return?
My life is so complicated right now. I am busy with work and the new business ventures – I honestly don’t know if I want a relationship or to go out with anyone right now (and there I go again – who even said that was what he wanted?)
I thanked him for the package and we have not really chatted since.
And now I think – did I offend him? Was I suppose to say more than “thanks” and “Thanks, it did brighten up my day.” Did I sound ungrateful in my response? Or am I overthinking a kind gesture from someone trying to brighten up my day.
