thank you all for the responses, especially the ones that explain a libra's behavior. i'm not going to obsess about it anymore, just wondering why he would be acting this way. hes pushy, so i don't doubt he'll approach me again. at that time, im just going to tell him that i have mixed feelings towards him and that it would be better for me if we didnt talk anymore at all, because i really dont see the point unless it could lead to something. i'm not trying to be friends with someone that makes me feel like im not worth it. i have a feeling that is going to be received poorly.
thank you for the responses! y'all made some good points. i did make some mistakes being persistent, but i've dealt with a lot of guys that like to play games and act uninterested, and then at a later date ask why i stopped talking to them, which leads me to an update to this story.
its been almost a month since all this went down. i went to a bar the other night, and headed straight to the bathroom instead of grabbing a drink first. immediately i heard someone calling my name twice, and it was him. he called me over to talk and said "why don't you say hi to me? you ignored me at *previous awkward encounter*". i asked why he wanted to talk, and he said he wanted to at least be cordial and say hi when we saw each other, but not talk like we did before. i said "say hi, and then what?" he just repeated himself.
what the heck is going on? one minute he was trying to cut off contact, and now hes face to face asking why i dont talk to him. do libras do this? is this some kind of weird game?? he made a dramatic statement, something like "if you dont want to talk, im completely fine with cutting you out of my life and never talking again, but thats up to you". i said i didnt know what to do, told him how i felt, and said we'd see what happens. my friend said he would periodically stare at me while i was still there, as i tried my best not to look. there was at least 4 of his friends watching this entire encounter, not to mention they usually stare me down whenever they see me out, which leads me to believe hes talked about me, but im not sure what hes said.
im trying not to overthink things, but this is just so weird to me. what is going on in this libra's head?
as a cancer, what do you do for a living? that is, considering you enjoy your job.
i just turned 29 and have been working the same job for 10 years. i enjoy it because its very social and feels like im just hanging out with friends all day. however, i want to make more money. its also not really my passion, and i tend to get bored there.
just looking for some ideas. only have my associates, but im willing to go back to school if necessary.
i feel like i have the worst qualities of being a cancer. i'm very unmotivated and scared to make a move to better my life and i'm very emotionally sensitive, even though i can hide it. rejection really devastates me, and when i go out to be social, i feel really self-conscious and think im not good enough to be there or i'm not attractive enough to catch the attention of those i'm actually interested in. on the flip side, i also feel like im better than everyone else, or at least people aren't good enough for me.
what can i do to basically get over myself and change my life? i know i'm capable of a lot, that i'm physically attractive, and that people do like me. i can't get out of my head and its made me insecure and therefore shy/timid and scared. i also know that not everyone is going to like me, but it hurts way too much to be turned down.
