Inside The Mind Of A Guy Whose Girlfriend Asks Him ‘Where Is This Going?’

Have you ever met a guy for whom the question where is this going? or the many of its synonymous counterparts weren’t a conversational bomb dropped by his girlfriend at just the moment when he couldn’t run for cover? Have you ever met a guy who felt like his insides hadn’t been shot with a funnel of lukewarm Montezuma tequila when his girlfriend decided to plan the entire travel itinerary to a place called ‘happy forever,’ and merely handed him his ticket?

Well, I haven’t. Not yet. And since I haven’t had the luck(?) to chance upon these few and few between Lovey Loverson-s (if any) who won’t have their ‘commitment-alert’ alarms going into overdrive when the where is this going bomb is dropped, I guess I have become quite the expert in the other, more common-er pals of my species – the Scaredy Sams who sprint for the mountains when the girlfriend wants to become more! The ones who actually shift their mental gears at ludicrous speeds when the girl they are seeing asks, So hon, where is this going?

And when THAT happens, here’s everything their brain-vehicle whirls past to drive beyond the where is this going signal (and dudes, this is first-hand):

1. WHAAATTTTTTT-THE-F*CK just happened?

1-2 wait what

Image source

2. Did she really ask that?

3. Maybe I can pretend I didn’t hear it over all the music.

2-3 dingo ate my baby crazy

Image source

4. But then, she will have me in a corner when she asks again!

5. Maybe I can laugh it off!

3-4 laugh it off

Image source

6. Yes! Bravo – I will laugh it off… but wait, that’s insensitive…

7. Damn, why do chicks fling such f*cking loaded questions at us?

8. And she wants me to answer that? Now? Like, really?

8-9 this is too much

Image source

9. Who does she think I am? Siri?

10. I mean, I don’t even know what we are going to be doing this Saturday!

11. Plus, isn’t it too early? It’s like asking a kindergarten kid to solve differential equations!

11-12 tell me how

Image source

12. I mean, we’re just dating!

13. Yeah – that’s it – let me tell her we’re dating and we will see where it goes!

14. That makes sense right – I mean, if I knew, I’d have skipped the prelims and gone for the last lap, no?

15. Nah, that’s not gonna work, she might take it the wrong way – and I kinda like her.

15-16 you cant handle the truth

Image source

16. Which is exactly why she shouldn’t put me on the spot like this.

17. Doesn’t she know I like her?

18. I have dropped enough hints, right?

18-19 shit just got real

Image source

19. Wait, I even told her that ‘I like her’ THREE times!

20. So, then what is all this about?

guurl you crazy

Image source

21. No seriously, what does she want – that I sign myself over for like ‘forever?’

22. Man, chicks are silly.

23. Maybe I should just blurt an ‘I don’t know.’

23-24 confused

Image source

24. Yep, a big, fat ‘I don’t know’ for pulling off a Satanic stint on me!

how dare you

Image source

25. Nah, that would make me a total jerk.

26. But the alternative is lying. Coz I REALLY DON’T, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, KNOW where is this going!!!!!

27. I mean, if I just lie that ‘we’re headed somewhere GOOD,’ she’ll start building air castles about a proposal, an engagement, a wedding, the reception, the honeymoon, and ohhh-the-woe-of-me – ‘a happily married ever after.’ Aaaarrggghhh!


Image source

28. What do I do?

29. Maybe I should try a coughing fit.

29-30 allergic reaction

Image source

30. Ahh, what a sham!

31. Why doesn’t that damn phone ring when I could do with a buzz or two!

32. Maybe I should play the ringtone myself to make it seem like a bro is calling…

stop listening

Image source

33. Play a ringtone? Seriously – get a grip, man. You need to chill the f*ck out.

34. Maybe she’s just messing around.

34-35 funny

Image source

35. Yeah, she’s messing around – haha, that’s funny.

35-36 not funny at all

Image source

36. NOPE, not funny at all!!

37. Can I pull off a ‘we need to talk’ right now?

38. Maybe that’s the best – I mean, sure, I like her but I can’t COMMIT. NOT NOW.

38-39 no, no, no

Image source

39. Yeah, I should tell her ‘I cannot commit now. Got way too much on my plate.’

40. Perfect!

41. But what if she wants to fix my fiscal situation, sift and sort through my work problems, and get me to talk of my ‘personal sh*t,’ huh?

41-42 fuck my life

Image source

42. Damn, John was right – the woman is a stage-five clinger! She IS capable of THAT!

43. So NO, can’t let that sh*t hit the fan!

43-44 scared guy

Image source

44. Maybe I should just say what she wants to hear.

45. I mean, there’s no paperwork here, no lawyers, no witnesses – she can’t hold me to it.

i have no idea what i'm doing

Image source

46. Yeah, let me say, ‘we’re headed somewhere GOOD’ – it’s no big deal.

47. But that’s vague and girls pop more sh**ty questions to vague-ish replies!

47-48 hate my life

Image source

48. Man, she has got me GOOD!

49. Girls get you GOOD and how!

49-50 bad feeling about this

Image source

50. Let me just give her her happy illusion and then, poof! I will vanish! And FOREVER!

i love you

Image source

And after the long drive, most of us end up parking in the ‘I love you’ zone! <facepalm>
