The Ick

For a long time, my (girl) friends and I have used a term to describe other people. Typically, it's past boyfriends or guys we've met along the way who now give us, THE ICK. You know who they are: the ones who give you that icky feeling; who can make your blood curl; a bad feeling in the pit of your stomach (almost as if you want to puke); a spontaneous reaction where your shoulders come up to your ears and your spine contorts into a weird position. THE ICK.

Sometimes you can get THE ICK after knowing and dating someone for weeks, or sometimes you can get it just by a first encounter. It's like a disease that nobody wants to talk about - there's no concrete definition for it, no cure for it and no real answer to it's symptoms... Rather, it's something that just develops.

I've known many people who now have THE ICK. The scary part is knowing that I may have THE ICK to someone else.. that's so disheartening. I don't want to be icky to anyone. Then again, nobody does.
