I had known this girl Lisa for several months; we met through a friend. We got along good and had fun together, so I finally worked up the courage to ask her on a date. It was the typical uninspired dinner-drinks-movie combo, which I know is lame on my part. Still, the date started off with her complaining about her family issues at home. Okay, not a great start, but I understand having a bad day. We then move on to dinner, have a meal with small talk, and move on to the bar to have a few drinks before the show starts. Turns out, she knows the bartender quite well, and they go on to have a 20 minute conversation as if I’m not even there, despite me introducing myself and trying to get in on the conversation. They were also very familiar with each other, casual touching was going on, etc. At this point, I just throw more drinks down my throat so I can at least try to forget what a horrible date I’m on, lol!

One Love

December 26th, 2012 by Jess (New Bedford, MA)

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).

My Best friend in the world knew that we both had a thing for each other, But we hid it from everyone by covering it up with having a significant other of our own. We still talked and hung out, plus we are both DJ’s and we had many gigs together. Until one strange day last January, My Significant other at the time had left some information on my laptop that made me suspect he was cheating on me. I was with my best friend, getting ready for a gig and i called him. I asked him if it was true and he told me it was. Not even ten minutes later, My best friends Girlfriend told him that she was also cheating on him. Me and My Best friend/current boyfriend have been together a year now. Thank you cheating losers for bringing us together!

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.

I Should Have Just Used the Express Lane

November 15th, 2010 by shopper617 (Boston, MA)

I was getting groceries today, and I strategically made sure that I was in the checkout line that had a really cute woman working the register. When she got to the bottle of wine I was buying, she stopped, and looked up at me with a sort of half-smile on her face. I smiled back as flirtatiously as I could, and she said: “I was just going to ask for your ID, but I guess I don’t need to.”

The Super Hottie

November 8th, 2010 by too nervous to stop talking (Oakland, CA, USA)

I was out with a friend at a bar when I spotted this amazing women, a definite 10! She was WAY out of my league, but after about 10 minutes of psyching myself up (and some encouragement from me friend), I walked up to her and started a conversation. Although it was awkward, I just kept talking, and she was actually very friendly. It didn’t take long, however, for me to realize that she was not really into me (she kept looking around for her friends, or someone who could save her form this awkward conversation). The problem was, she was too polite to break off the conversation… and I was to terrified to do anything by keep talking. We went on like this for 10 uncomfortable, socially-awkward minutes, until her friends finally showed up.

not the right one

November 3rd, 2010 by HeyMan (Somerville, MA)

I was talking to two girls in a bar, and I though things were going pretty well. One of them began chatting with another guy, allowing me to talk alone with the one that I really wanted to get to know. I eventually left the bar with some friends, but I got her number before I left. After a while, we ended up back at the same bar with the girls. The friend of the girl I was talking to found my friend in line for the bathroom, and told him that she was glad I was back, because she though I was perfect for her friend. She apparently said the same thing to the guy she was talking to (and maybe a few other people too). After a little while, her friend decided to leave. Apparently, she was the only one in the bar that didn’t think she and I were a good match.

double rejection

October 10th, 2010 by jjnoway (Milton)

I was having a beer at this bar and I saw a pretty hot girl by herself so I thought I’d talk to her. I try to strike up a conversation and she says, “you dress badly for a gay guy.” And yeah I’m not gay.

Not for Old Guys

September 23rd, 2010 by younger than you think (boston, ma, usa)

I was in Washington DC with some friends, and we went out for drinks downtown. As last call, I decided that I wanted to keep going. Out on the street, a large group of people had gathered from the various bars that were closing. I looked around, and found a really cute woman who looked friendly. I walked up and asked her if she knew of any good after-hours clubs in the area. Her response: “yeah, there are some, but they’re not for old guys like you.” I was 26 at the time.

A Beautiful Name

September 20th, 2010 by Timmay (Portland, OR, USA)

I was in a house party in Seattle, and a bunch of us were out drinking on the front lawn. I spotted a pretty girl with curly blond hair who was wearing a pair of mirrored aviators. I walked up and complimented her on the glasses. She showed no interest but I pressed on. “What’s your name?” I asked her. “Chlamydia,” she replied. Several people laughed, but I didn’t know enough to realize this was a harsh rejection, so I tried to keep going. “That’s a beautiful name,” I said like a loser, trying to play along. She walked away.
