I was trying to get with a guy that used to come into my work every day to get food. He didn’t seem interested but I kept trying to talk to him and go on a date with him. He finally agreed to go on a date and we agreed to meet that Saturday. Saturday rolls around and I’m looking all cute. Well it decided to snow and get super icy the night before and I didn’t even think about this as I was getting ready. I put a pair of sky high heels on and strutted out the door to his car. As soon as I walked out my door I hit an icy patch and went flying down the stairs and smacked right into the side of his car! He thought I was pretty stupid and the date went terribly. We never made it to a second date although I tried to give it another shot.

Doomed from the very start

I had a crush on this guy from church I knew so when his birthday came around I volunteered to hand deliver his card. I was feeling a little icky, but assumed that it was just nerves. He answered the door and seemed pleased to see me and invited me in. He was alone watching some tv movie. He gave me a tour of his apartment and as we were walking around I realized it was not nerves after all. I was thinking I better get the hell out of there. He must have been lonesome because he sort of insisted I stay and watch the movie. I thought, fine, I’ll hit the bathroom and all will be well. I ask if I may and head for the stairs. He says, “there is a bathroom right here, GO ahead”. I was mentally knocking my head into the wall because it was right next to the steps. I had to do it though so I went in, ran the water and prayed for the best. When I came out, he didn’t look like he was suppressing laughter so I thought perhaps I was in the clear. Well, I sat back down and realized this was not over. I stuck it out as long as I could, made an excuse and left. I made it not a block when I had to jump out and puke on the lawn, I could still see his front door. I got a call a few minutes later from a co worker who wanted to know if I also had the stomach flu…. WTF. SO the next day, church boy calls to say hi while walking his dog. He tells me to hand on, and I hear him yelling “NOOOOO don’t eat that”. He comes back and says, “I gotta go, some a-hole puked on the lawn and my dog is eating it”. Doomed.

One of the worst dates I ever went on was when I was in high school. A cute boy from my high school band had asked me out to see a movie and then go out to dinner. He was a gymnast and incredibly cute so I was very excited about the date. We had planned to go see a romantic comedy, but when we arrived at the movie theatre, the comedy was sold out and we ended up seeing a Will Ferrell. It was incredibly crude and crass and especially on a first date, it made us both really uncomfortable. We sat through the movie not being able to look at each other and hoping that it would end soon, obviously not what you’re looking for on a date. Afterwards, we went out to dinner. I ordered first and got a small steak with a baked potato since steak is what the restaurant was known for. What I didn’t realize was that gymnasts are always worried about staying slim and constantly watching their weight. He usually ate very small portions, especially when eating out at a restaurant. He ordered his meal after me and got a small side salad with dressing on the side. I thought he was joking at first, but then I realized that he was serious and my face turned bright red. So, of course when my food arrived, I could barely eat any of it and I was so embarrassed that I had ordered more than he had. Surprisingly, he did ask me out again and we dated for a few months, but that first date gives us a lot of laughs even today.

I was really excited to go to our school’s talent show. It was a dress up event and I had been asked by Larry. He was a nice guy, and everyone seemed to think that he liked me. That is, everyone except for him. He actually liked someone else, as he made obvious throughout the night. We dressed up as celebrities, and I had a very nice dress on. He never once told me that I looked nice at all. We sat on our ride to the event in silence mostly. He was too distracted to notice that I was sitting right next to him. At the event, we sat down with some of his friends. Watching the actual event wasn’t too bad. At intermission, he just left! All of his friends left, and I was sitting there all by myself. Fortunately, my friend Bob was there, so I went to talk to him. I have now been dating Bob for almost two years. Most people wouldn’t be very happy if their date was like Larry and didn’t talk to them, but it turned out to be the start of something beautiful for me.

One Love

My first real job I was sent down to Florida for training with another new hire. I sort of knew him, but not well. I had never been in a relationship before and I was always apprehensive about opening up to a man.That week we became great friends, we had complimentary senses of humor, our conversations were so easy, and he was really cute. On one of our last nights in Florida we were drinking and ended up making out and he spent the night. The next morning wasn’t awkward at all and we spent the rest of our nights in Florida together. When we got back up to Massachusetts we continued to see each other until we started our new job and he stopped returning my calls. Also in the employee room he would talk very openly about his most recent conquests in front of me. I can take a hint so I stopped trying to contact him. About a week later he called to make plans with me for that Saturday night. I waited at home all night for him to call me. He stood me up. I found out the next day that he had been telling everyone that we had slept together and that I had a boyfriend at the time (both not true).

Shot for a goal, got a red card

Last year, my sorority threw a Saddie Hawkings dance. I had been crushing on this guy for the past couple years and decided that this way my chance. I walked up to him and asked if he wanted to go to the dance with me. He said no because he had a big soccer game to play in on that night. I was a little upset but I knew it wasn’t his fault. The night of the dance, I saw him across the room and decided to go and ask him for a dance thinking he just go here after the soccer game. I go up and ask for the dance and get ready to calm my nerves so the dance would be smooth. He looked me dead in the eyes and said “I don’t think you get it. Leave me alone.”

Some guy I had a crush on all 4 years of high school finally asked me out on a date. I was so excited, I was telling friends and family about the good news, and losing sleep over it every night from the excitement! We talked for a week, until it was the night of our date. We planned out that he was going to pick me up at 8, and we would go for a dinner and a movie. I was looking very forward to this because I have liked this guy for so long. So we went out to a very fancy restaurant, the date was going great! I couldnt of asked for it to go any better! We were at the restaurant for about an hour before his phone rang off the hook! Every time he answered the call, and it sounded like he was fighting with his mom or something. I thought it was very rude he would even answer the phone during our date, let alone fight with someone for 25 minutes right in front of me! Anyway, so after we got done eating we left and we were on our way to the movie. His phone rang about 3 more times and he ignored it. I was extremely surprised when we did not pull into the movies, but we pulled into some random drive way that I didn’t even know. A girl our age came out and him and her started fighting, and she looked at me and got me involved by calling me very rude names, saying I was trying to take her boyfriend! I asked him what was going on and it turned out that was his girlfriend, and he asked me out on a date to get her jealous because they were fighting! I had to get my own ride home from her house.

I remember way back when I was in high school and had a crush on one of the hottest (I thought so at least) girls in school. We had a few classes with each other and over the course of the school we got to know one another a bit. Nothing major just chit chat walking to class here and there occasionally sitting with each other at lunch if we couldn’t find any of our respective clicks to sit with. As the end of the school year was approaching so was that horribly awkward time when every guy was expected to man up and ask some girl to the prom. My whole high school career I had been dreading this moment in time. Ya see I have never been quite the lady killer if ya know what I mean. I was that one guy who girls always likened me to their brother not the guy they wanted to hook up with after the game at some keger in the woods. As the time was quickly approaching to make a fool of myself I could only think of one girl that was worth receiving the inevitable rejection from. Ya guessed it, the hot chick that I had gotten to know over the year. So one day I gathered the courage up approached the hot girl and popped the question, will ya goto prom with me? The answer came quick and swift “I would if I wasn’t gay.” Now I had been turned many times before but never like that. “I would if I wasn’t gay”, I had no idea if she was telling the truth or not but I wasn’t going to ask. Needless to say I spent prom at home playing Donkey Kong on my No-friend-o.

David was a great kisser. He really knew how to pull you in close and give you a passionate, roll your eyes to the back of the head kiss. Heck even my mom was jealous when she saw us sucking face in her living room. David made a lot of promises that a naive 18 yr old girl about to graduate from high school would fall for. Especially one who had a bad complexion, thick glasses and an introverted personality. With his dark curly hair, solid build, and olive skin most girls would drool. add to that he promised we could go over his aunt’s horse farm after prom. What girl’s jaw wouldn’t drop. Alas, David was a lady’s man and his promises were mere pipe dreams. He “fell in love” with someone else a week or so later and I ended up asking a friend to prom instead…a friend who eventually became my husband of 15 years. So girls keep your chins up. If the first fish gets away keep fishing because there’s plenty more.

Prom?

When I was a junior in high school, I had a crush on one of my close girl friends. She was very smart, funny, and we had been friends for a while. After starting to talk to her more and flirting with her, I couldn’t hide my true feelings any longer. I asked her out to prom to go as “just friends” so that neither of us would go dateless and we could spend the night together and have fun. She told me that she did not think that it was a good idea because she did not want to give others the wrong impression of us and did not want to lead me on. I ended up telling her how I really felt about her and my feelings, but she told me she did not feel the same way. She wanted to remain friends, but she did not feel the same way about me. She also told me she did not want to date in high school because people move away, which I told her I understood. After a couple weeks, I was getting over her when I found out that she had started dating one of her other close guy friends. I was torn because although she was my friend and I cared for her, she told me she did not want to be dating anyone and then ended up dating someone. Although she is still my friend, I felt betrayed by her and decided not to get involved with her romantically anymore because she did not feel for me like I felt for her. She is a nice girl, but she didn’t think we were made to be together.
