Four (count 'em) Four Secret Admirers

Thursday, September 10, 2009

So, you guys, I went to my reunion. So much happened, but here's an interesting tale:

At the first meet and greet, my friend Mr. C tells me that he had a crush on me 20 years ago, back when he was secretly passing himself off as a straight person. I think he's openly gay now. Well, what can you say? Thanks, man, I'm flattered. He knew I was straight, and he was in the closet, so it made for a confusing situation for him, I guess.

I was sharing this tidbit at breakfast with my friend Ms. H. She's not really fazed. She says, "I had a crush on you too!" I gasped! What?! H, I liked you too! Why didn't you make it more evident? Why didn't we ever go out? She said she was too shy. I don't know why I never asked her out. She didn't seem that into me. Dang.

So I thought about this the rest of the afternoon. I knew another of my friends, Ms. M would be there. And I thought about how swimmingly we had gotten along back in the day. When I saw her, I asked her: Why didn't we ever go out? She says, "Because you never asked me!" Dang.

So of course, everyone's moved on and married now. But it's fun to think about. I always felt so fat and unattractive back then, even though I was at a weight I'd LOVE to be now. And to look back at photos, I was a handsome young man, but I didn't feel like it. It's funny that I was secretly admired, when I always felt so alone and undesirable.

Well, wouldn't you know. Today, I got a Facebook friend request from Ms. S, a girl from high school that I haven't talked to in 23 years. She says, "I had a huge crush on you back in Journalism class." Dang! That's 4 in a week!

Well, MAYBE, this is still going on in my life! Maybe I have secret admirers who are too shy to speak up. I don't think I should wait around another 20 years to find out. I'm going to hang this clipboard and pencil here on my desk. It has a space for my secret admirer's name, and a checkbox for if they have a crush on me or not. If they do, the admirer can request a time and place that they'd like to make out. I think that makes it easier on everyone. It will help me with scheduling.

Hmm, I should put a Boy/Girl checkbox on there, too.

Later, Speeples. :)

    Ohh that's so great! Is one of those women the little dark haired woman you had your pic taken with at your reunion? I thought at the time (seeing the pic) that you two looked cute together and the fact that you took a couple of pics with her that she might have been an old crush? Am I right??? Let me let you in on a little secret........ women are not as "visually" motivated as most men are. We like to laugh and we love men who make us laugh. You my friend have a great sense of humor, therefore you are funny and that makes you attractive as hell, not to mention you are handsome. You have probably had loads of chances to date! I think the clipboard is a great idea, makes it much more efficient when makeout times don't overlap and you at least have the time to brush your teeth and tuck your shirt back in. You want your potential crushes to feel special don't you? I also like the idea of the note that says "do you like me"? Check yes or no. Those could be used when you go out since it might not be convenient to have a clipboard with you. Here's to your clipboard always being filled!!!
