Male - 23 Years Old
Kind of had a small crush on this girl I had a couple of classes with over the last couple of years. I hardly knew her at all, but the handful of times I small-talked with her was always great. I graduated so chances of seeing her again were slim, but luckily, I ran into her at a bar over the Summer. I decided to man up and talk to her, and somehow, we ended up talking for a couple of hours.
She ended up offering me a ride home (which I took even though I had plenty of other rides), and we went to grab some foods with her friends first. I was happy not eating since I didn't have any cash or a credit card on me at the moment (long story), but she ordered me something anyways and was happy to pay for it. She took me home, and it turned out she lived a couple blocks away from me. She made a bunch of comments about going swimming, grabbing some drinks, wanting to see my dog, etc. Then I made sure to get her number before I got dropped off. I was stoked on how much better the night could have gone than I imagined it would. Had a lot of potential there.
Well, after that point, it was just uneventful. I tried texting her a handful of times, and we had some good conversations, but she was always too busy to hang out (traveled a lot, worked full time, took classes). Eventually it was just a hassle to keep asking to hangout and we just kind of forgot about it. I talked to her again recently and realized how much of a waste that all seemed. Pretty shitty/anti-climactic ending to the story, right? haha.
