hahahahahahaha seconded. And they say we are confusing.
Case story: I had been pining over a guy for over a year. Formal was coming up and I was really excited and as far as I knew he wasn't going with anyone so I was subtly going to ask him to go with me. And he started talking to me more than he used to so I was like SCORE! and then he asked me to the formal and I was very very happy. But before the formal was valentines day and at my school, it runs a fundraiser where you can buy a rose and send it to a classmate. Most everyone who was going with someone had their dates send them roses, but not me. I was very disapointed but was ok with it. Until I learned that he had sent a rose to the "queen-bee" of the school, even after she had recently refused a date with him. I was pretty much heartbroken. I cried, ate chocolate, and then was over him. And the whole rose un-gesture thing made me think we were going to the formal just as friends, which was fine by me. But then he asks me out on a date before the formal, and I say yes because I don't want to make things weird and I thought there may be a chance I still like him. Nothing happens on the date......at all. Then the formal is fun. But at the after-party he gets drunk and sleazes on me, but i was like whatever you're drunk. But then just as I was leaving he runs up to me, kisses me on the cheek and says I've been wanting to do that for ages. A few weeks later he asks me out again and I say no because I realised since valentines day I hadn't felt the same way about him. Then he/his friends complain that I broke his heart.
Long story, I know. And there may be a little "girls are weird" thrown in there too. But still. What the fridge-magnet? You send your date a rose, not the person who pubically and dramatically refused you.
Moral of the story: No girl, or anyone for that matter, likes to be second choice.
