When I was in 8th grade I had a big crush on this guy. There were guys I "crushed" on or thought was cute, but with this guy I had an actual big crush on.
We were seated together in one class and started becoming friends. At first he started acting like he liked me. Then towards the end of the school year he started treating me different and I guess we are no longer friends.
Preparing For Failure
It was a day before Valentines day and our school break. I thought it was the perfect time to tell him that I like him.
I went to the store and bought a bunch of candies and wrapped it into a bouquet. I made him a card and wrote the reasons why I liked him in it and my number. I thought it would be unique, cute, and that he'll like it.
(REMINDER: I was an awkward 13 year old at the time. In the reasons why I liked him I put things like "You are hella cute", "You are swag", and etc which I cringe about TIL THIS DAY!)
The Nightmare Begins!
That night I couldn't sleep and stayed up until 4 AM. When it was the end of our class, my friend and I waited until he walked into the hall. She called his name for me because I was too scared to. After she did that I knew there was no turning back.
The process of me giving him the candy was SO EMBARRASSING! I kept walking a lot faster than him and he kept telling me to slow down, and on top of that I dropped one of the candies out of the bouquet. I was a mess. Finally, I got everything together and told him that I liked him.
He took the candy and walked away. Literally, he didn't say anything and he had a blank facial expression. So, I told him to text me. He said okay and slowly walked away.
At that moment I felt accomplished.
Fast fowarding into our school break he never did text me and I waited a whole week. I thought maybe that he forgot so I decided to message him. He told me that he was sorry and forgot to. Our text message was short because he stopped replying four messages into the convo. I didn't even bother messaging him back.
Wrapping it up
There were other embarrassing incident's that happened AFTER I told him I like him like when I asked him if he was going to the dance and he said no and in addition to that I replied with "Oh, poo", or the time I cried infront of him and the whole class while presenting...
Also, looking back I think everything happened for a reason. He wasn't really a good kid. I heard he does drugs now. So there's a lesson in here somewhere.
In my opinion, this is the most embarrassing thing that could happen with your crush. I cringe and feel sick to my stomach whenever I think about my incidents with him. I do not miss my 8th grade self haha.
This could've been a good Valentine's day story, but it randomly came to my mind and I currently feel sick to my stomach..
Feel free to share your thoughts and embarrassing crush stories!
By the way, this is my first myTake!
