Simon stared back at her a moment, strait into her eyes. What was so hard about this? didn't she know? He was a weird, awkward, creep who apparently had a hard time understanding complicated human emotions and signals. What did she want him to say?!
But finally he said, "I don't know... I like women that like fighting and martial arts and such. I am attracted to those that have a warrior spirit. And I also find myself really attracted to women I have to win over... or that like me despite themselves. I guess I thought we had a sort of weird connection. We hunted down your sister, found her, regretted feeling forced into doing it. We both had trouble reconciling our relationship with her..." Knitting his brows he said, "I don't know I... am sort of drawn to toxic relationships... or ones with the potential to be toxic. And saying that all out... yeah..." he rubbed the back of his neck, sighed, then said, "It's just... the really screwed up pattern of my life. That's why I wish I could be with Jodie. She doesn't fit the formula... I mean besides the playing hard to get part only... she isn't really playing. She likes me, but she also dislikes a lot of things about me. She's afraid of them even. And the truth is I don't really like those parts of me either. She gives me a reason to reject them instead of embrace them. I like to go for women that are attracted to my darkness. Because it's easy then. It's easy to seduce them that way. It's easier to embrace ones flaws then work on ones virtues... which I don't feel I have any of at the moment."
He cleared his throat, then said, "Well you get it, right? what are your flaws? You are kind of desperate for a man, right? So I suppose you will go for the next attractive man who is happy to encourage you to hop right into bed with him before you even know him. Just so you don't have to be alone at night. It's easier then having standards and searching around longer, right? If I knew you other flaws I am sure I could give better examples..."
Because clearly she would have just loved that..
