Off the market

Was with Becca after work tonight, and she was talking about a man she was previously seeing who, after appearing to have lost interest in her, has suddenly begun to acknowledge her presence and make his known again, only because she stopped trying to remind him of her existence. He went so far as to say, to her great indignance, “You do know that I’m back from [insert foreign country here], right? So why haven’t I heard from you?”

“It goes to show that my metaphor was right: the opposite sex is like a DVD,” she fumed. “You contemplate buying it, and then decide that it’ll be around for a while so you don’t have to get it just yet. But when you finally decide that you do want it, and you go back for it, you discover that it’s gone, that someone else has bought it — and possibly for a lower price at that!”

I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you asked for it
‘Cause you need one, you see
I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you tell me it’s make or break in this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If your heart is nowhere in it
I don’t want it for a minute
I’ll walk the seven seas if I believe that’s there’s a reason
To write you a love song today

– Sara Bareilles, Love Song
