Double Date


So here’s my side of the story on that date. Bob had a huge crush on me in the first place and I wasn’t interested in him one bit. I remember the first time he laid eyes on me it was like that I-found-my-eternal-companion look. I was a freshman at the time and I remember sitting in church next to Erica and he would be in the same row as us on the other side and he had his head turned 90 degrees just staring at me. Of course Erica was the one telling me this because I didn’t dare look over at him. Erica told me to start picking my nose so that he may be turned off and leave me alone. But I couldn’t go so low as to do that.

Anyway, Bob and his roommate asked us out on a double date. I was so envious of Erica’s date because she was going with a premi who was fun and not expecting anything serious. Mine however, was like already planning out the proposal in his head. But we had to go the store (like what Erica said in her version) and she came to me asking if I had any stuff with me, but sadly enough I didn’t have anything. She needed to go back to the apartment and Bob was being such a jerk about it. He kept on asking why and I seriously wanted to be like, “Hey be a gentleman and go back to the apartment!” By the way, it wasn’t like we traveled very far. Our apartment was only up the street. But he was way to caught up on going back to the apartment that as we were driving out of the parking lot I could see us coming closer to the other car in front of us. No one was watching except me and I was thinking, “Ugh..we’re going to hit it. We’re going to hit it.” And then WHAM!....we hit it.

That made Bob even more frustrated. But bla bla bla we got going on the date. We went sledding and I would look over at Erica and her date and could see they were having so much fun goofing off. But just to let you guys know, I’m not the one to be rude on a date. My attitude is, they guy asked me out (which is always a brave thing for a guy to do), he is planning it, and paying for it. But anything that I did that was nice he took it like, “Oh my goodness, she totally digs me!” So I had to back off major. I hated going down the hill with him on the sled because of course we had to be close to each other and then when we reached the bottom I did the most horrible thing. He offered his hand and I pretended I didn’t see it and got up myself. If you were to know me, that is such an un-rexi-thing to do. But afterwards we got in the car and we were driving back home, but then I could see that Bob’s hand was in between our seats flopping like a fish for me to grab and hold.

Seriously, does he really think I am going to hold his hand.”

His handed started going on my seat a little bit (oh and by the way, he’s driving this whole time as well). Usually, if I don’t want my hand held I do the usual, I fold my arms. Well I was in this huge bulky coat and I started to fold my arms but I looked more awkward that anything because it was hard to do.

Bob could see the awkwardness and he said, “Are you ok?”

“Oh I’m just cold,” I lied.

I was dying hot, but I just didn’t want him to hold my hand. So because I said I was cold he turned up the heat. The rest of the way home I thought I was going to be sick from the heatstroke.

We finally got home and I told Erica, “I don’t ever want to go on another date again with Bob. For all I know he’s probably already bought the ring.”

But the story continues….

Bob is pretty persistent throughout the entire semester, but that is another story.

If it kills me

Rexi and myself have decided that we have been slackers at writing in this blog, so we are going to be better about it from now on.

I want to preface this post with an explanation. I have been living with Rexi for the past three years and we have been on a lot of double dates together. We have some horror stories about dating so we thought over this Christmas break we would share some of them.
Be prepared. These are awful. They are every girls nightmare and yes we did suffer through every one of these incidents.
We promise that we aren't going to exaggerate any of the stories, but being girls everything seems ten times worse than it probably really was. We are going to tell you from our points of view and hopefully you will all be able to sympathize and share some of your horror stories from dating. {Email us @ with your stories and we will post them within a couple of weeks!}

So before I tell you one of my horror stories I wanted to update you on the present...

John and myself are completely over. When I went to church on Sunday he didn't even acknowledge me. I was a little hurt inside but I played it off like I was cool.
What is up with guys acting like girls? Really? I thought we were out of high school. Just because you don't like me anymore doesn't mean you have to ignore me. It is so frustrating. Sometimes guys really bug me.

I went on that date with Jack and it was fun but while I was with him I really wasn't feeling it. I was even trying to force myself to have feelings for him, it still didn't happen. I think he felt the same way because now we just hang out and we are cool. There aren't any of those feelings of wondering what it would be like to date because we both know we dont feel that for each other. I like just having a guy friend to confide in.

Now I am going to share a date that I went on my freshmen year in college...

We all know how freshmen are. They are stupid and naive. I am not being rude, it is just the way of life. Freshmen think they are something else and they haven't quite caught on that they are in college and so they act really immature. Everyone can tell a difference between a freshmen and a sophomore. They have simply grown up.
I hate to admit how dumb I was as a freshmen but I really was the biggest idiot. I had no idea how ridiculous I must have seemed to so many people. It was no different with dating for me. I had no idea what I was doing.
I got asked out by a guy in my ward, Seth, and we were doubling with Rexi and Seth's roommate Paul. We were going to go sledding. I was really excited. It wasn't because of Seth, I knew I didn't like him, I was just happy to be going on such a fun date.
Seth came to pick me up and I was all geared up and ready for sledding, we were in the car with Rexi and Paul when Paul said he needed to stop at the local WalMart for some hot chocolate. Paul was just going to run in so the rest of us stayed in the car. As I was sitting there I started to get that feeling, every girl knows what I am talking about, and I realized that I really needed to get to a bathroom. The only bad thing was I had nothing with me, I hadn't brought a purse because I knew I wasn't going to need it and Rexi had nothing with her either. I couldn't go through the date without doing anything about it so I timidly asked Seth if we could return to my apartment really fast. He asked why, and I told him I had forgotten something.
Seth was really nice and didn't press me any further, I think he figured it was for something girly but when Paul got back in the car all of the trouble started. Seth told him that I needed to go back to the apartment for a minute but Paul didn't want to. Paul said that we were behind schedule and looked at me and said whatever it was I forgot I really didn't need. I insisted that I needed to go home, but he wasn't going for it. I was almost in tears trying to get him to go back. Finally, Seth stepped in and said something along the lines of "Dude just go to her apartment". Paul grudgingly started to pull out of the parking lot and while we were at the stop light Paul turned to ask me again why I had to go back when BANG!
We got in a freakin accident.
I have never seen a guy so pissed in my life. Especially on a date. Paul turned to me and said "Look what happened all because we had to go back to your stupid apartment". I was so mad at him. It was NOT my fault that he couldn't drive a stupid car. It also wasn't my fault that I just happened to be visited by mother nature right as we were on our date. I just ignored his snide remark and he gave the car in front of us his information and we went back to my apartment. I ran inside and did what I needed to. It took about 1 minute and he was still nagging on me over how much time we had lost being able to sled.
I still don't understant the rush of the date. It was so gay.
I remember I had a lot of fun with Seth. We did some crazy things on the sleds and afterwords we drank hot chocolate and talked. He was a good guy, but after that date I just felt like I couldn't quite look him in the eye. He obviously knew what had happened, and it was always a little awkward. He never asked me on a date again, but I was okay with it.

I am pretty sure that date was the worst date I had ever been on at the time. But I have definitely been on some awful ones since.

Dating is so crazy. I don't think anyone will ever be able to get over the first date awkwardness.

Goodbye Duke....Hello Bruce Wayne.

My excuse for not writing will have to be blaming finals week. It seems that finals always seems to be the scapegoat around this time of year.

But here's a little update. If I can remember. My last post was of me kissing the Duke. Yeah, that was a little crazy. Well, we are pretty much over.

SORRY IF YOU LIKED HIM! I just really don't think he's right for me. He's kind of one of those bad boys that acts good. Once he starts kissing it's like finding out that Superman was really Lex Luther. (That's a really weird comparison, but it's what I thought at the time).

But it was really hard to tell Duke that I wanted to move on from him. I'm not one of those girls that just ignores him or sends him a text telling him things are over. I honestly told him the truth. I said, "Duke, I don't want to be with you anymore and I sound heartless right now, but I don't want to waste your time and I don't feel you are right for me. You are a great, funny, attractive guy. Just not for me."

The end. GOODBYE DUKE!!!!

Next comes Bruce.....I know, I know....why am I still talking about Bruce. Well, he is my hometeacher and it makes me laugh everytime. I can't tell you how perfect he is when he gives the lesson. He has this smile to die for. He seriously has no flaws except for the fact that he doesn't have a personality. During the lesson it just seemed to me like he was trying to prove to me like he was some spiritual guy, just seemed so fake. I could see right through him. I keep on getting the feeling that he is interested in me, but I feel like he is super intimidated or something and I really don't know why.But I was looking at his facebook the other day and all of his pictures are so vain. I wanted to gag myself with a spoon. He is seriously eye candy though.

Is it bad that I want to give him a second chance? I just want to be like, "Hey lets go on another date...without you flexing your ridiculoulsy big biceps in front of me....and lets get to know each other." I picture us sitting indian style on the floor (not touching) facing each other and playing the question game. We would start by asking, "What's your favorite color?" to "What are you afraid of in life?"

Part of me like, "REXI! Why waste your time?!?"

Who knows what I'll do.....grrrr....frustrating.

What should I do?

Woot, Woot

So I haven't talked to John at all since I have gotten back from the break. Neither of us have made any contact at all, so I am not feeling as guilty anymore. If he wants to buckle down and figure out what is going on between us, I will be prepared to talk about a relationship and whether I want one or not.

On a more positive note I ran into Jack on campus and we have a date set up for this weekend. I am pretty excited even though I have no idea what we will be doing. But I am confident that I will have fun with him no matter what.
Also, a guy in one of my classes came up to me today and asked for my number. I was a little taken aback but I gave it to him anyways. He said he really wanted to get to know me because I seemed cool, so that was nice of him. We will see what happens with this one. His name is Elliot.

I just wanted to quickly update and let you all know about these new crazy guys in my life!
