Sex & the Single Woman: I Love You, But You’re Bringing Me Down

The title of this post, by the way, was taken from the title of an LCD Soundsystem song. The lyrics don’t directly correlate to the situation I’m about to describe, but for some reason the song just fits.

Anyway, my roommate and this guy are definitely interested in each other. He’s a good guy–that’s not the problem. The problem is that he doesn’t know what he wants. Thus, my roommate is caught in limbo.

He knows what he’s doing to her, and he’s not making excuses, but at the same time he can’t start something if he’s not willing to commit to it. What’s a girl to do?

I may be naive, and I’m definitely a romantic, so I’d like to think that in time everything will work itself out. Is it foolish for me to believe in the best in people?
