It's a Heartbreak
I was introduced to this girl through a friend of mine via phone. We both met on our first date by going out to play miniature golf first. Then out to a really nice casual restaurant where we both really hit it off exchanging each other personal life stories. Well, "Kate" is about eleven years younger than me, but the age thing didn't bother us. She was also the kind of girl that was very shy and very sweet. I thought her personality was neat, despite her being very timid and not saying much. Anyway on our second date I decided to visit her hometown and to have dinner at a chinese restaurant there. She seemed very cheerful and giddy. Afterwards Kate wanted us to go to the local park for a walk and we did and had fun doing so. For the next two weeks we would call each other every night til midnight. I thought maybe she would start to have feelings for me at this point, and me the same.
Our phone conversations is where we were building up our friendship, me making her laugh and telling jokes and her telling me how she felt about me. Well, on our fifth date I kinda noticed that Kate wasn't smiling and saying much at the restaurant. Also at the park that we went to I wanted to tell her how I was feeling about her, but I can sense that something may be wrong and just had a funny vibe about it. I called her the next night and she seemed ok.
It was a Friday night and I went to go sing at a karaoke bar in the city that I live in. Kate was at her home at the time. Well during that moment I received a phone call from a friend of mine that introduced me to her and she told me something that made my heart drop. Said to me that Kate has feelings for someone else. First I couldn't believe it but then the reality started to sink in. My friend told me that Kate's friend went to visit her at a campsite near her hometown and discovered that she went camping with another man! I was also informed that she has stronger feeling for him than me. What else could I do but call her and confront her about this. She confessed and I told her that it was over between us. To this day it has been exactly a month the last time I spoke to her. All I can do now is try to move on and hopefully, when I least expect it, to meet the right person and get to know that person for a long time before moving in on love. Other fishes in the sea, as the saying goes.
