    So today I was on the bus home from college, as it was busy I ended up standing for the 40mins. The bus reached the shopping centre on the way home and a crowd got on, one of them being this girl I don't get on with at all, so things were awkward even more so that it was because...

    One time one of my guy friends asked a guy

    that I liked if he was into girls with glasses. * I have glasses * it was so awkward. I thought that could of ruined any chance with him I had. But I talked to the * guy that I liked * and turns out glasses = a major cute/turn on factor for him.
