I use the word "game" with some reservation, because I think what I've done in reality is look out for both of our best interests in the most efficient, constructive way I know how. I've refrained from favoring her with a lot of in-person attention. I've refused to pursue her romantically, really. I just don't think that obsessively pursuing her is going to serve either of our best interests.
If I had to pick between my dealings with many young women back then and apply them to how I relate to a young woman such as her (the young woman I see at this one business I patronize) these days; between Veronica Ortega, Katy, Julie James, Wanda, Donna, Anna, Jenna, Linda, Myrna, Gwen, Ann Marie, or Sara; without question, hands down, unequivocally, how I related to Sara would win by many, many lengths. No doubt about it. No, I did not go on one date with Sara, nor did I even know her name until several years after she came onto the scene and left. But, of all those young woman I listed; all young women I thought about A LOT to the point of obsession back in those days, I looked out for both my own and Sara's best interests much, much better than I did with any of the others.
I look back on my time with Sara with much more fondness than any of the others. Make no mistake about it, in reality Sara could come off as a sourpuss, bitchy little thing a good deal of the time, but I didn't have to put up with a lot of that, because I hardly associated with her at all.
Until further notice, this young woman gets the Sara Template. As far as I can tell, based on my own personal experience almost exclusively, how I related to Sara back then, and how I've related to quite a few young woman in my world these days, from that virgin girl, to her friend, to the Invisible Woman and others beyond and beforehand, is how an obsessive guy like myself is SUPPOSED to relate to the obsessed upon parties I've encountered these past several years. If any men out there who find themselves similarly afflicted as I have with an overwhelming obsession with unavailable women and want advice on how to get with the object of their desire, I've got nothing for them. I mean, I haven't the slightest idea how I would go about picking up this young woman. Not the slightest idea in the world. But, if any men with a tendency to obsess on unavailable women want to free themselves of that obsession (Anyone read any posts from me lately that talk about the Invisible Woman? Anyone?), I can go on all day in the same vein as this post. That is all.
