Twelve Girls, Twelve No’s

There was a kid in my class who once called up and asked out twelve girls on the same night. They all said no. It was seventh or eighth grade and there were only forty kids in my entire class. Obviously it was the hot topic of discussion for a whole week. Twelve girls, twelve no’s. We all talked about it, laughed about it, talked shit about him, and insulted him to his face. We let him know that we knew all about his failed love life. Pathetic. We called him pathetic. We thought it was. Now I know that it was anything but. Getting rejected sucks. It hurts when you ask someone out and they say no. It might take a while to get over it. He heard no after no after no. He could have licked his wounds, but he kept on going and trying. He kept getting rejected but he kept on asking. I don’t know how hard that must have been. It wasn’t pathetic. It was anything but. I wish that I knew that back then.

The Wrong Date

Putting down the wrong date is inevitable whenever a new year or month rolls around. It’s hard to get used to change. Just when you start getting used to jotting down the month, it changes and you have to remember the new one. You feel dumb when you get the month wrong, but it’s even worse when you get the year wrong and it’s not even January anymore. Just keep reminding yourself that it’s 2013 and you’ll get the hang of it.

Lunch Date Conundrum

Going on a date during the day is a bad idea. A first date lunch is the gateway to the Friend Zone. The two of you will munch on salads and make small talk about nothing in particular, and when the date is over you will give her an awkward hug and go your separate ways. It’s much better to have a dinner date. You can have a few drinks and relax. A stroll beneath the moonlight is much more romantic than a hike under the blazing sun. The sun is a cockblocker and the moon is your wingman. Avoid the lunch date conundrum and embrace the night.
