I'd probably say this one time I took a girl I was chasing to a Dave Matthews Band concert. I'm not a huge DMB fan, but she was, haha. Tickets went on the sale the day of her birthday party in April, so I was like "this is a sign." I woke up early to make sure I was able to get them when they went on sale because this was like '03 and DMB was still a huge deal. So she'd been kind of cat and mousing me, I worked with her, and there was definitely and immediate "ZAP" when we first met, but we were very different people, so we never hooked up. Or at least I think that was the reason. But she kind of jerked me around more than I can believe I let her, but in fairness, she was wicked hot and could get away with it, hahaha. Anyway, I go to her birthday party that night, ready to tell her and hopefully be a hero. I mean, I was confident that she'd go with me, but I knew I might get taken and end up not hooking up with her and get played like a sucker. But I was hoping for a big reaction that might happen then and there, plus school was ending soon and she was leaving for the summer, so it was an excuse to see her in July. So she's BOMBED, it was her 21st birthday, so you know how that goes, haha. But I tell her that I bought her a present, I just don't have it with me, and I told her I got us tickets for DMB. Immediately kisses me, like for real, and I'm like "SCORE."😂 But she was wasted and I didn't want to take advantage, so I told her roommates to keep an eye on her and just let her be. I mentioned the concert again at work the next week and she didn't even remember😂 So it was like giving the gift twice. No kiss the second time, she was sober, haha. But from there I had the day circled on my calendar, and i'd see the tickets every day stuck in the edge of my bulletin board. The whole summer was a countdown to this day, haha. And I worried the whole time that she'd bail, I don't usually get anxious about girls like that. I called her a couple weeks early to make sure we were good, and then we spoke the day before she came, but that was it, so it's not like she was running hot.
So she comes that day, but she brought a guy and a girl from her summer job too, and I'm like "FUCK, that's no good, she brought date crashers", plus the girl had an apartment in town, so she would have had alternate sleep arrangements besides my place. So now I'm like "great. I'm getting cockblocked and going to a concert of a band I don't really listen to." (Continued... long story😝
