This kid was not joking around when it came to being cute.
He was new, and I was feeling bold, so I walked over and introduced myself. He seemed relieved to have someone to talk to, and I was . . . completely dazed by how much more gorgeous he was up close. I noticed some other girls looking over at him as we talked, but I didn’t care. I was there first!
He asked me which teachers were hardest, and where he should hang out at lunch (the quad. duh.) but then the bell rang, meaning homeroom was over! I wanted to say something flirty, but didn’t want to be too obvious, so I asked him when his birthday was, explaining that I was “a freak about birthdays” and that I knew when everybody’s birthday was. (A total lie, but a good one, right?!). To my total surprise, his birthday was in two days. JACKPOT!
When I got home, I told my mom that I had to go to the store to get a birthday card for a friend at school. I’m pretty sure she knew I was up to something–but then I was always up to something–so she drove me to the drugstore anyway. After scouring the shelves for like, an hour, I finally picked out the perfect card. It was blue, had a funny looking dog on it, and said I hoped he had a happy birthday. CLEARLY he would understand that this meant I totally wanted to be his girlfriend and maybe get matching air-brushed T-shirts at the beach that summer, right?!
Right! I brought him the card, he blushed and said, “You remembered?!” and then asked me out right then and there. I think we only went out for a couple weeks until we realized we had basically nothing in common, but whatever. He was adorable and I got the guy! Woohoo!
Have you ever gotten the guy? What did you do to get your guy? Are you too shy to approach new guys? Tell me everything in the comments!
