So, I was leaving work tonight and one of my co-workers joked about me saying "his girlfriend is waiting for him" or something because I don't have one. And the lady letting us out (work late) said "really?" as if she was surprised. That's how I interpreted it. I guess I'm not very assertive, that could be one of the reasons. I mean, I've had offers I guess, but turning them down probably hasn't helped my reputation in that area much. So, this set the flares of doubt inside me once again as to what peopel think about me.
