New kids are exciting little human marvels. At least, that’s how we treat them, right? But when the new kid also happens to be really hot, then we’ve got a problem. The best kind of problem, of course, but things can get a little dicey.
What are the odds that you’re the only person who has eyes for the newbie? Pretty damn low, girls. If you do decide to pursue this new kid, you’re definitely going to have some competition.
GIF Girl knows what this is like–she knows what everything is like, doesn’t she? Anyway, here’s what happens to her whenever she likes the new kid in school.
The new guy at school is an enigma.
Like a new mysterious play thing and I want to know everything about them.
Who are they?
Where are they from?
Why are they here?
Do they always look that good in a pair of skinny jeans?
Can I get in on this?
I social media stalk him, of course. And, uh, stalk him a little bit around school.
Then I realize that I’m not the only one with eyes set on this new kid.
Will there be a battle for them? Because I can do battles.
In my dreams at least.
I pretty much fall into my usual pattern of embarrassing myself and finding it hard to speak like a normal person around him.
And then when I finally do…I’m a little, well, underwhelmed.
I guess that we develop this idea of what we want them to be like, and when they don’t fit it they’re just…boring and disappointing.
So while my crush may have waned, one thing is certain. He’s still fun to look at.
