Practicing to go surfing.. #FML
Warning: Water is farther than it seems & the sand doesn’t like people running on it.

Being Asian in NYC, I don’t seem to draw too much racial profiling [or at least haven’t noticed it]. People assume I’m smart and have good grades, and I do have good grades (3.5 gpa) and I don’t think I am dumb.
However being half Vietnamese and having a dark tan in New Jersey in a school with maybe 10 other Asians and seemingly no hispanic people, some people thought I was Mexican. Like the white people there were so wealthy and sheltered they had never seen an actual hispanic or Mexican person and my dark skin made them think I was Mexican. I even got some lawnmower jokes at me.
As for your problem, I guess you just have to have a thicker skin and ignore it. Be the better person and don’t be what they assume you are. But you should definitely move if you are uncomfortable where you are.
You just gotta let go. Delete all the messages, get rid of all the gifts, delete him off socialmedia. Just erase any evidence of his entire existence from your universe.
Also think about it like this, why would another guy be interested in you if you are obsessed with a ghost in your past. Start doing things you love to do. Find a hobby. Be an interesting person that people would want to get to know better.
This is my religion.
Humanism and to live life with noble intentions is how I intend to go about life. Why other’s feel the need to plan to beg for mercy for an afterlife seems a rather fearful and toxic way to live.
