1. First girl I asked out I left a chalk outline of a body on her driveway, along with a (clearly fake) police report indicating I was dying to go out with her. Yeah. I still cringe at the memory.
2. Enrolled in the same Uni, she stopped talking to me 2 weeks later.
3. In high school this girl who I was close friends with (but also had a not so secret crush on) told me once how she really loved those HUGE 7 foot tall teddy bears, so I told her one day I’d buy her one and she laughed, writing it off as a joke.
Fast forward like 3 years later when we’re going to the same local college and reconnected after slowly drifting apart after high school. She tells me one day that she’s sick so I do the only logical thing. Drive to Costco after class, drop 200 bucks on that huge teddy bear, stuff it into the backseat of my tiny Honda Civic, drive incredibly dangerously since the bear is taking up my entire rear window, then show up at her front door. She says it feels too weird and romantic given our past (me having that not so secret crush back in high school and her having to tell me multiple times that we’re better off as friends) so I do the whole drive back and return the bear.
