Toolshed Tuesday: The fade out.....

Land HO!  Just kidding...I saw a friend of mine walking towards me.

(this is the kind of face I make when boys (or girls) perform the "fade out")

Top: Victorias Secret, Vest: Cherry Lane Boutique, Pants: Anthropologie, Necklace: Charming Charlies (Texas), Belt: J.Crew, Shoes: China

The fade out.  We all hate it.  BUT.  We ALL do it.  You've been going out with someone and decide you really don't like them.  So obviously, the most logical way to get them out of your life is to avoid them completely, screen their calls, and perhaps, pretend to not see them at church.  Newsflash: You'll see them at church.  

So why do we do it?

I've heard it all.  "I don't want to hurt their feelings!"  My response-- that's straight up bass-ackwards.  Or how bout this one..  "it's easier this way."  uh huh.....  Wouldn't it just be easier to just be straight up with that person rather than let them wonder for days on end?  I say YAY verily YAY.

Side note:  This post is not the result of the fade out happening to me recently (although, it has happened to me before.)

I made a promise to myself a long time ago that if I ever "wasn't feeling it," I would TALK to that person about it.  I don't like it when boys fade out me so I'm not going to do the fade out with boys.  Everyone should take their own stab at COMMUNICATION.  

It's great you know.

Who's with me?????!!!!!


  1. this is my favorite dancer. :)
    and COMMUNICATION... fetish of mine. love it.

  2. I think bassackwards is my favorite thing you've ever said.

  3. This is a total crack-up! Not gonna lie I don't miss the dating scene that much...or really at all. Haha! Especially in Provo where pretty much everything having to do with dating is bassackwards :)
