I’m not sure whether to be impressed at the simplicity of that one […] or call you out for being lazy.

With the vast amount of cliches you laid on me here, how could I not respond in kind?

If you were getting me ‘agitated’, do you think I’d tell you?

Oh, I don’t know. I think I’d probably get a 5 paragraph response to an offhanded remark or 3 separate replies to the one post.

Speaking of the other replies, I may be a lot of things she doesn’t like, but my mom did raise me right. If I have nothing good to say about the things you appear to love, I would rather not say anything at all.

But since you called me out on it…Meh. Not really my thing. I just can’t get excited for this sort of dance music. I can see something in the idea of giving over to the rhythm. I guess it’s just not my rhythm. I’ve been in the Caribbean since 1988 — not counting a stay in the Netherlands between 1997 and 2002 — If I want something to swing my hips to. I want some dance hall or reggeaton. I liked despacito, before Justin Bieber screwed that up.

not to have a heart that can be captured — or at least that you hadn’t captured it?

I’ve been thinking about what, if anything, I was going to respond to this. Truth is, either of those is fine with me. I hardly ever get trolled. It’s a joy to have someone try.

I didn’t want to comment on your fear of commitment, mostly because I’m at a very different place and I’ve got as close to “the one”as anyone may hope to get, but I think I’m going to offer one last opinion. It’s better to regret something you did than something you didn’t do. Heartbreak and shame will hurt like hell but the “what if”will kill you.
