Also titled: Dating Advice from My Middle School Crush
About a month ago I wrote a piece on lessons that I learned from my middle school and high school crushes.
I decided to call my middle school crush to find out what his actual dating advice to me would be, based on middle school interactions.
These are the actual I received from my MSC, who wishes to remain anonymous.
Surprisingly, I was just as nervous as I would have been 15 years ago. I filmed this amazing call, so you can witness the awkwardness of things like:
- basically flashing the camera
- trying to figure out whether or not the (not so good) stories he mentions are totes about me
- my uncomfort when the topic of marriage comes up
- google stalk talk
- and the crowning glory at the end when he admits that the poem I wrote him in middle school worked!
Also, to add to the #awkwardness, my current boyfriend walks into the room and sits through half the call. *shrug* totes worth it
