You Never Know What You're Gonna Get

Here's a good date for you. Ghosting. I bet you're confused as to what that is. I definitely was. Let me give you some background first.

It was the first day of class, so naturally I scan the classroom to see if I know anyone. Nope. So I proceed to sit in the back left corner. Safe and comfortable. The teacher begins to tell us that we will be doing group work all throughout the semester, so we need to make groups. But I don't know anyone! Great. I awkwardly ask the kids in front of me if I can be in their group. They seem nice...dorky, but hopefully good students. We do introductions and of the three girls in our group, I'm the only single one. There are two boys. One is really cute, but short. The other one is really white, skinny and awkward. Let's call the skinny kid, "The Creep". The Creep starts asking questions about me and is shocked that I am a junior, 20 years old and NOT married. He asks me whats wrong with me. Really? Who is this kid anyways?

Throughout the semester we get to know each other a little better. I get more comfortable with does he with me. He tells me that he has to flirt with me because I am the only single girl. He tells me he likes my hair because it looks like I "just woke up or just got done doing the dirty dirty".

One day, he comes into class and says that he wants to take me out. This puts me on the spot, and so I agree. He won't tell me what we are going to do but just tells me the day and time. He comes and picks me up at my apartment and it turns out the other couple is in my ward...I've never seen them before. Ha, my bad. We proceed to go up to campus...yes, a date on campus. Bowling? A play? No. Ghosting. Ghosting is when you walk behind random strangers, as close as you can for as long as you can with out them noticing. We make it a competition. Now this would be funny just randomly with your friends, but on a date is a whole other story. Of course, The Creep has his camera to document this whole ghosting experience.

After ghosting for about an hour, we go to Dairy Queen. He takes more pictures with me. Just me and him. Ahhhh. The other couple is weird, of course, it's BYU. I end up just sitting at the table, day dreaming and wondering what my friends are doing.

Finally, it's time to go home. He just drops me off at the stairs with the other couple and drives away. Thank you. An hour later, I get a text from him saying the pictures and videos are up on Facebook. Already?!! Gosh. Thank goodness I don't have to go out with him again.

The next class period he tells me that I have "a lot of junk in the trunk" and he likes it. Wait, I just spent an hour with him watching me walk and videotaping it. GROSS. Oh! And a couple nights later I get a text from him that says: Booty call?

Who does this kid think he is? Brad Pitt??

He definitely tried to ask me out again. I guess he had it in his head that I was interested. Once again, I'm too nice for my own good.
