When did you realize that girls aren't into a guy who tries to 'out female' them by showing how he can be more compassionate, more sensitive, more spineless.... When I was a freshman in high school there was a girl that I got along with pretty well. We went on a couple of dates but her interest in my seemed to ebb and flow. I thought I'd win her over by ingratiating myself to her but it didn't seem to work. One timebefore school started I came in early and put flowers and balloons and stuffed animals in her locker only for her to throw all of it out and get embarrassed by it. I thought she just didn't like me. That weekend I was supposed to come over to her house and we were going to watch a movie.... but it didn't even seem like she was even all that interested in it. So I never went. I just stood her up, never called, nothing. I didn't even think it would matter because she certainly didn't seem to give too much of a damn when she threw all of that stuff away. I went out with some friends instead that night and played basketball. When I got home my dad told me that Jenny was calling the house like a mad woman. We started dating very shortly after that and I began to catch on to the rhythm of it all. I thought it was just unique with her.... but that never really seemed to be the case. Any one else have similar stories?
