When it comes to matters of the heart, I think I am an expert.
Already when I was 5 years old I said : ‘He is just not into you’.
Before there was ever a movie made with this title, or pronounced in Sex and in the City by Miranda.
One of the characters in the series.
Or actually I said. ‘He just likes her better’.
And to be real, I said it in Dutch.
‘Hij vind haar gewoon leuker’.
Something I told my best friend then.
Hours we spoke about him, while playing.
But when she spoke about him, we needed to stop and drank a bit of tea.
Sometimes even imaginary.
I mean we were just little girls.
We were at here place.
At the attic.
Her mother downstairs.
She asked me why he wasn’t looking at her.
I can remember it as the day of yesterday.
I even made a drawing.
3 circles, representing them and 2 arrows to make the connection.
Pointing out who was looking where.
Two of the circles closer to each other.
Him and the other girl.
She was in love with a boy, but he was looking at another.
And that is a true story.
If it was true what I said, well I don’t know.
But it was the only answer I could give her.
So I guess, yes.
She never spoke about it ever since.
Now she is happily married with a baby girl.
