    I was texting this guy from my university --

    I'm a freshman, and he is a senior. Long story short, he offered to take me for a date on Friday at 7:00 PM back to his house, and we were going to stargaze on his roof and listen to music (he lives in a house off of the campus). I was so excited to finally be able to go on my...

    On The Second Date

    I have been stood up once and it was on the second date. It was very confusing, because he called me five minutes before to tell me he was running late. After about 20 minutes I called and there was no answer. Another ten minutes passed and I began to get scared that maybe he...

    A few times. This year it is a common theme.

    The worst part is when you don't know why. I have always been a believer in communication. If circumstances change then it's always good to let the other person know. Think how you would feel if it was you and then act accordingly. I am happy to say so far I have never stood...

    Um I haven't. But I did stand someone up.

    He invited me some where to eat, and I drove there, saw him, freaked out then left. Sorry dude.

    Several times, I've learned to expect less from

    anyone. Can't say how many times I've travelled to find someone that decides they would rather not be found. I'm no angel. About a week ago I went to meet a friend from online. I was downtown, invited her for coffee (lame I know) as she was coming to a park we had talked about...
