|So excited after not seeing my boo thang for 6 months|
Cute right? That's why we usually end the story right there, but I'll give you folks the long version.
Fast forward about a month or so. We'd become pretty good friends, and one night he texted me and said "I just wanted to tell you that I would totally date you." After spending two days dreaming about being his girlfriend and getting all giddy and excited with my best friend, I finally got a chance to talk to him in person:
Me: Just for the record, I would totally date you, too
Him: Oh, um, yeah. I don't think it would be a good idea for us to date. You know, we have a class together. And, um, I like you, but, um, we have a class together and I don't think it would be a good idea...
Seriously? You can't date me because we have a class together? Whatever, dude.
|My 20th Birthday! Hollaaa|
Fast forward to October. We kissed for the first time, on someone else's suggestion, and even though I had multiple prospects at the time. I was kind of a playa as freshman...
Fast forward another week, I start dating Matt. The next day Sam invites me to ride with him to Clemson to get some free alcohol one of his buddies rescued from a liquor store that burned down... don't even ask. One the way home, out of nowhere, Sam says to me "If you were single I would totally date you" (we clearly said totally a lot back then). I have no idea what I said back, but I remember what I was thinking: I WAS SINGLE YESTERDAY, MORON!
Fast forward another month or two, Matt breaks my heart. Jerk. And Sam becomes my knight in shining armor by giving me a place to stay at the beginning of winter break, and driving me to the airport so that I can get home for Christmas, since Matt was supposed to do those things. Jerk.
|I mean really, how cute are we?|
|NYC! Please ignore that woman's hiney|
By mid-February Sam was pretty fed up with me, so when I showed up to a party and he was there we were both thinking "Great, just who I didn't want to see." His friend, Lauren, told him "You should make out with another girl to make her jealous." And make out with another girl he did, right in front of me. So what was drunk little me supposed to do? Well clearly start making out with another guy; what other option did I have? And PS, these people were both major downgardes. So there he is kissing another girl to make me jealous, and there I am kissing another guy out of jealousy. And there's everyone else at the party whispering about us. Alcohol leads to great decisions.
No really, it does, because Lauren's plan worked. I was insanely jealous. After getting so much attention from him for the last month, I couldn't stand seeing him with another girl, so I made sure his attention was back on me by the next afternoon. And a week later we were Facebook Official! It took about another week until I was actually dating him because I liked him, and not just so that no one else could have him, though. That's true love, ladies and gents.
So you see, we're 4 years in and madly in love now, but at the beginning we were, well, flirting with disaster :)
