Modern Truth or Dare

by A Spider

I’ve had a lot of time to think recently (don’t ask), and one thing that randomly popped into my head is how horrible it would be to be forced into emailing someone you had romantic feelings for, 10 times in a row, without explaining that you were being forced to do so. What would you say? Would you send links? Or mini updates to the first email, each progressively more self-deprecating? (“No but this is the last one, I swear! I think!?”) Or just boldly own it. Ten pictures maybe? I can’t stop thinking about this!

Although it of course presupposes that the person you have romantic feelings for isn’t someone with whom you’re already intimately familiar, in which case getting 10 emails might liven things up (“what the?”). Because it’s important to keep things spicy, or so they say. And I guess I agree. At the end of the day, though, I think I prefer the comfort of the known. Sorry, things have been a little weird.
