Today at lunch I discovered that according to the definition decided upon at lunch today (by friends who don't know something about me), I am socially inept. As decided, someone who has reached the age of 25 (which I passed a while back) and yet has not kissed or been kissed by someone unrelated to them in a romantic kind of way, is socially inept.
I happen to fall into that category.
It is not something I revel in, in fact sometimes it really bothers me that I have never been in a serious relationship. But there it is. I've never really dated and definitely never dated anyone I wanted to kiss. It was always something that just never happened for me.
But socially inept? I know that I stick my foot in my mouth with alarming regularity and I know that I FEEL socially inept sometimes, but I didn't know that the measurement of social ineptitude was measured in lip strength.
I didn't speak up and say anything because that itself seemed socially inept and also because it's no one's business unless I choose to share it. (Ironically, I am now sharing it with the internet...) But it made me think.
