I Have Always Been The Alternate

Starting back in my junior year of high school, I asked Allison to the prom. I was head over heels for her and I though she was crazy for me as well. When I asked her to go, she said she'd let me know. I asked her again a few days later. Allison said she was sorry but she had another date. I found out from one of her friends that she was waiting for another guy to ask her out.

Fast forward 2 years. I had met Becky, Suzanne, Linda and Stephanie. All of them had boyfriends and would call me when their partners were away. Back then, in my early 20's, I didn't mind the situation. I was single, had a good job, lived on my own and didn't have the drama of having a girlfriend but still had frequent bedroom partners. When I first heard the term "booty call" I instantly realized that's all I was to these women.

Fast forward again to the present day. I still get offers for a short term fling (nowhere near as often as when I was in my 20's) but I need something more.

You deserve it all.

I'm hoping that, at some point, my number will always be one and there will be no line involved.

I think taking a number is better than standing in line.
