Did you ever experience a crush? Have you ever kept your breath away when seeing the one, thought of one person all day long? I bet you did. I believe we all have been there at least once and as you may predict my friends, I am going to share now a story of my crush.
It all started a long time ago and I don’t even remember how. What I remember is how charming he was.
When I met him I was engaged with someone else. Not to be tempted by his amazing self, I deliberately avoided him for months. In the meantime, I entertained myself imagining his amazing personality, extraordinary intelligence, and our bright future. You know, classic crush related bullsh*t.
As the time passed, he got transferred to another country and disappeared from my life. Recently I meet him again.
As my relationship status has change and I became single, having in my mind words of Matthew Hussey*, I decided to make a move.
An idea was to make it casual and breezy (a perfect example of a breezy conversation HERE). I made a joke, I mentioned something about his hobby and giggled. And than, when it was about to get interesting out of the sudden he appeared to be a total douchebag.
The conversation between us:
He: I earn shitloads of money but need more shitloads of money. I don’t have many hobbies apart from going to snobbish parties, where I spend my shitloads of money. I won’t ask anything about you, cos you are already into me and I am so flipping amazing. What is your name, btw?
Me: ? (sound of crushed glass bubble I have seen us in that I heard in my head HERE)
Could I be more disappointed?
And so there was no happy forever after part for us, but this story ends as a fairy tale anyway. (A video of me with my friends reacting to the story HERE)It ends with a moral. I have learned with it that firstly I should not judge a book by the cover. And secondly it is better make a move and discover the disgusting truth than live in a world of imagination. A princess (yes, I am referring to myself as a princess) learned her lesson and now she is smarter (hopefully).
This is a story of my crush. Do you have similar experience? Or maybe the opposite ones? Let me know in the comments below.
