Dating, it’s character building

May 25, 2006 12:26 AM

True stories these …

  • Whilst making out with a girlfriend, I reached for my glasses. She asked me why. I said, “I can’t see you naked without them.” She didn’t let me and I was forced to use my imagination.
  • I once had two girls stayed over in my room once. They slept on my bed and I slept on the floor. Housemates gave me dirty looks after I told them nothing happened. Story of my life.
  • Still about the same two girls … one was drunkenly mad at me and got into a taxi with a stranger. I chased after her in my car while the other girl puked in the backseat. I caught up with the taxi and I got them both home safely. No, I didn’t get “rewarded”. Chivalry is overrated.
  • A girl I secretly had a crush on described to me in vivid detail and super technicolor her “first time” which she had just had with another guy. I understood what crimson tide really meant that day. I also wanted to hurt that guy badly but I ended up getting drunk by the river instead.
  • I once declared that I wanted to go out with a girl by yelling at her.
  • Before I knew how to take a hint, I couldn’t take a hint. It took me a year to realise that maybe the girl that I had been asking out, really *really* did not want to go out with me. I actually had to say, “You don’t want to go out with me, do you?” *ouch*
  • I so identified with Duckie in Pretty in Pink. I thought Molly Ringwald’s character was a stupid bitch.
  • You know how ppl have make-up sex? I once refused “break-up sex”. What an idiot. Do you see a pattern here???
  • I’ve broken up with girls using the lines “it’s not you, it’s me” and “I like you too much”. Maybe I do deserve my dry patch now. Karma is a biatch.

Do you have any to share? 😉

    You are funny. I have been reading your site for a while. mmm, how about this one… First “one night stand” in my life, me and cute home meet at a club, go home to my place, pashing madly and all clothes are off before you know it, and then we climb into bed and he says, “Can we just hug?”. Never been able to live that one down since. (-_-||)

    v.u.: patience my young padawan, your time will come. In the mean time, heed the lessons here. 😛

    transnationalmigrant: oh yes. erm, beautiful agony? 😉

    siti: why thank you, thank you very much.

    E: woah. Hug?! After all that pashing and making out, sans clothes even!? Gees. Maybe he couldn’t get it up and he wanted to avoid the embarassment???

    Personally, if I’m already there at the stage that you described, it would have been a sure thing. 😀

    You think your dry patch’s cos you been spending all yer time blogging? 🙂

    Nah… If I were to guess, its b’cos you know what you want more clearly now, so you won’t jump into anything (or anyone) just for the thrill of the hunt…

    Hmmm…I have got a few stories of my own
    Back when i was 18 I was sorta seeing this guy, nothing serious, but it’d been going on for a couple of months. he seemed really keen at the start, but after a while it seemed like he was making excuses not to see me.
    the last time we caught up, it was during the day and we went for coffee. during this little catch-up he talked to me the whole time about how his ex-gf was moving back to Australia from overseas and she wanted to get back together. he was asking me for my advice! I mean, i was meant to be dating this guy and he was all like, ‘I just don’t know what to do, can you help me?’
    anyway, then we finished our cofees and he asked me, ‘is there anything else you want to do with me today?’ and I said i couldn’t think of anything in particular but it would be nice to ha ng out. His response?
    ‘well I’m glad you had nothing planned for us because my bathroom is really dirty and I just have to get home and clean it this afternoon.’
    I think he ‘just wasn’t that into me’!! lol. pretty lame excuse, huh? needless to say, I never heard from him again

    vandice: hmm, I like the way you look at it. Bravo! 🙂

    girlstar7: omg that is LAME. The guy I mean. But then again, he was 18. We are still “inexperienced” in that sorta thing at that age – dealing with ppl I mean. Not the physical aspect. Heh.

    haha actually he wasn’t 18, i was 18 and he was 21…and yes, it is very lame.
    another story:
    when I was about 19 I picked up an older guy (mid to late 20s) at a club. I had just broken up with my first serious boyfriend and was just looking for a bit of fun. when I say ‘picked up’, I just kissed him, I didn’t go home with him or anything. I gave him my number, not expecting anything to come from it. surprisingly, he messaged me the next day and we ended up catching up for drinks the following Friday night.
    despite the age difference, we really hit it off. we had had a lot to talk about, we had similar taste in music amongst other things. I thought things were going really well until he dropped a bomshell:
    he was a single Dad with two kids!! he said he would leave it in my hands as to whether I wanted to call him again, so I never did…I certainly wasn’t ready to be a step-mother at 19!!
    yes, i certainly do have an interesting dating history…

    Wahoo! I’m commenting on entires written ages ago because I’ve only recently started to read your blog and with all your linkages throughout your posts, it’s not hard to click and read your older ones. I’ve enjoyed them all thoroughly so far, well done! =)

    As for the first anecdote, about needing your glasses to see your girlfriend naked, I have to admit that I made my boyfriend do that. HAHA. But now, I let him keep it on. Something to do with confidence, or maybe the realization to why can he feel me, but not see me? It sounded silly to me.

    And to your other anecdotes, ah, you are such a sweet guy! 🙂 I admit, girls, when drunk (including yours truly) can be SUCH a hassle. It’s entertaining to look back after but the drama, phwoar, enough for a soap opera like that!

    mae: yes drunken girls are sometimes more hassle than they’re worth. A scene from “The 40 Year Old Virgin” described it very well.

    And please continue to commment, no matter how old the entries are. Thanks for the compliment! 🙂
