I was asked out in high school exactly once. One time. It was freshman year and it went something like this... I was standing in front of my locker and a guy friend came running towards me, really excited and says 'Michelle, will you go out with...' and I don't remember there being MUCH of a pause before what he said next, but my brain went into overdrive and I started to think 'hmm, never thought about going out with this guy before, it might be nice...' when I catch the rest of his question. '....with my friend, (really geeky) John*?' Except he didn't say the part about him being geeky. (but he totally was, and yes, I've always been attracted to some form of geekiness, but this guy was too much, even for me)(names changed solely for embarassment reasons as some readers, who I went to high school with may or may not know who I'm referring to) And of course, to make things so much more awkward for all involved, John was standing right behind my guy friend, waiting for my answer. I said no as kindly as an embarassed, on-the-spot 14 year old can say no, and John and Guy-Friend ran off to the next girl either recognised to try again. So not much disappointment on my rejection, apparently. And that is my high school lovelife covered. Tragic, isn't it?

I did date in high school, but afterwards, the dating was far and few between.ReplyDelete
I'm not so sure it's tragic. Look at what you have now. :-) I did say yes to a boy who I kind of felt sorry for and at the same time was so flattered someone actually asked me out, and it was not the best choice to make. He was very damaged and it wasn't too pretty when I told him I didn't want to see him anymore. Fortunately, he didn't attend my high school so it made life much easier. That sums up my entire high school dating career. Haha No one else ever asked me out.ReplyDelete
My husband's actually the only other guy I ever dated (we met in college).
Hehe....I started dating in my senior year of high school so is that considered tragic? :)ReplyDelete
How are you doing pregnancy-wise?
I had boyfriend in high school, and that was in 9th grade.. Do you remember that? We dated for 2 months and then he broke up with me over e-mail.. I didn't date again till well 5 years after that..ReplyDelete

I had a boyfriend in junior year that I dated for three years after that. I wasted the best years of my high school life on that guy!ReplyDelete
