You may privately set yourself some ground rules that may help. This might include: Here are two people you care about who have found happiness. If they stay together this may strengthen the relationship you all have.
The kiss was about two-seconds-long and mmm, I'd say exactly two seconds too long. In my head, I was already thinking of an exit strategy, not from the kiss but from whatever this would turn into. The only problem was that Michael was almost 10 years older than me, which I figured would be a huge downer on my freshman experience.
Wait, there were two problems. He was also in a toxic, on-again, off-again relationship with his girlfriend of six years. Fine, three problems. He lived in my hometown, in an entirely different country. OK, I think that covers it. So, Eric. He was a stand-in. I hadn't decided for how long or how many stand-ins I would need exactly but my thought process was as clear as the Red Bull I chugged before going on this date.
I would spend my college years dating while Michael worked through his relationship issues back home. Then, when I returned after graduation, he would see me for the sophisticated, worldly being I'd blossom into. That is, of course, if I made it home alive. Eric proved to be more of an obstacle than a stand-in, really.
Here's how it all went down. Eric and I had exactly two things in common. We were in the same section of freshman music appreciation and we lived on the same floor of our residence hall. Both of these situations presented endless opportunities for the movie-inspired meet-cute of my dreams but, alas, that is not at all what I got. I mean, I've heard of actors veering off script before but, holy hell, this was next-level. Our meeting that November of my freshman year still holds its rightful place in my top five most embarrassing moments.
And for context, let me just say that I drunkenly attempted to disrobe in a parking lot last weekend. It was a Thursday night and my three roommates and I — all covered head to toe in glow-in-the dark paint because college — piled into the elevator of our residence hall to paint the town Sydnee Lyons That's when Eric fluttered in like a moth to a neon flame and, all in one breath, asked me to go out on a date with him that Friday.
I felt ambushed and unfairly obligated to agree, so I did, but our date was just as awkward as our introduction. That's right — the first time he asked me out in a public forum was also the first time he had ever spoken to me.
And TBH, I wish it had been the last because on the actual date, he uttered these magic words while grazing his fingers against my shoulder: The night was a bust, obviously. She was just excited to hear I'd been on my first college date — so excited, in fact, that she told her mom and all three of her siblings. The thought made me a little queasy because, like I mentioned, I was working on a long-term plan to woo her older brother.
Luckily, none of them reached out to me to tease me about it so I thought, "Eh, all good. Michael had posted a status update remember when those were cool? Umm, who's this about? Did he get back together with his ex again? Ugh, I'm going to have to go to this wedding, aren't I?
Wait, does he mean Giphy The more I thought about it, the more I realized how badly I wanted it to be about me. Don't get me wrong. I didn't want to be the girl who hurt him but I wanted to be the one he cared enough about for that to be possible. Maybe the one who went on a date with someone else recently? I had to know. I slid into his DMs although, I definitely didn't call it that in and boldly asked if his status was about me. I knew it was.
It had to be, right? But anyway I'll give you a little back-story. I've been friends with my best friend I'm going to call her Sarah for the sake of this story, and his name is going to be Adam for about 8 years now, and I've known him for the same amount of time, so I've sort of seen him grow up, and I've never ever had any sort of feelings or attractions towards him during that period of time, as obviously I always saw him as younger than me.
We've hung out quite a bit like whenever I would go round Sarah's house as a teenager, he would sometimes hang out with us, or we would go out as a group of 4 with Adam bringing his friend along.
I'm sort of like a 'family friend' to Sarah and her family in that sense, as I've been on holidays with them and vice versa.
Sarah used to say when we were younger that she could always tell Adam had a little crush on me, but I just took it as being quite sweet. Anyway, last year he turned 18, and I was 20 at that time, and me and my other friend were out at the same nightclub as Adam that night, and he kept trying to make a move on me not in a sleazy way, he was just very drunk haha but I had to explain to him that I couldn't because he was too young, and he was my best friends younger brother and I did not see him like that.
I kept hearing him saying to his friends how 'beautiful I was' and how he was trying to pursue me. Obviously he was pretty drunk as well as this was the night of his 18th birthday so I don't think he took the 'rejection' too harshly. The same thing also occurred again a few weeks later when I saw him out at the same nightclub, but he was very drunk again so the way I was rejecting him wasn't taken too seriously I don't think.
Now this year I've seen him out a few times, and also seen him at Sarah's a few times for pre-drinks before we all go out and he has matured a lot. He was always someone you knew would grow up to be a good looking guy.
He gets a lot of attention from girls, goes to the gym, dresses well etc. We all went out together recently for Sarah's 21st, and one thing I notice about Adam which has always been the case, despite him being younger than me is how protective he can be of me.
