Re: xavier's first question in a long time -- only answer if you are an MPU
I agree with Kyl3. It doesn't seem that big a deal so I think we can assume you really care for this woman, which is awesome. Not sure where she stands with you though.
You can totally tell her the truth and be fine. This is a great opportunity for rapport building, but I would avoid making it sound like the worst thing possible. More like that it just bothers you a bit.
You can totally straight up tell her "I don't know why I said those things. I guess I like you more than I thought I did and I care what you think of me. Which is so strange for me to care how anyone thinks of me." BOOM you just made some great rapport.
BUT.... and this is a big booty BUT!....if she is not in a similar place as you and sees all of this as casual you will lose a alot of points with her and it'll be a disaster.
This is the way I feel about expressing ones feelings:
When someone expresses themselves they automatically lose power points. They are making themselves vulnerable to the other person and there isn't really anything you can do to NOT lose power when expressing your feelings. HOWEVER, if the person reciprocates and expresses themselves then they are losing points as well and basically giving you back power points. So a good relationship will constantly have this back and forth and exchange of power points because they're both expressing themselves. At least this is the way I view things.
So it pretty much depends how you think she'll reciprocate. If she smiles awkwardly and says "Hey man. It's not a big deal. Chill out" then you lost. If she says "Wow I had no idea I was that important to you. I feel the same way" then you're golden.
"All things are subject to interpretation. Whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth."
