Hahaha! Oh, thank you Daily Post for letting me run through my lifetime of (mostly) rejection! Most people, I would guess, have their first crush at school and I’ve already mentioned here that at school I was categorised firmly into the group of “Boys You Would Like to Marry” rather than the “Boys You Would Like to Date”. I’m still pretty much the former but it’s harder when you’re not given the chance to be the latter!
So let’s go for first crush I did actually date. We dated for about 10 months I think, with a few weeks’ break in the middle when she dumped me for a guy called Lee. After the 10 months, she dumped me for another guy called Lee. I’d known her for about 7 years until we finished college and went our separate ways. About 2 years after that I saw her in a shop in town and stopped to talk to her but had to remind her who I was.
Yep. Multiple kicks in the balls with that one.
I wish I could get my head out of the sand
Cos I think we’d make a good team
And you would keep my fingernails clean
But that’s just a stupid dream that I won’t realise
Cos I can’t even look in your eyes without shaking, and I ain’t faking
I’ll bring home the turkey if you bring home the bacon
I’m a lot like you so please, hello, I’m here, I’m waiting
I think I’d be good for you and you’d be good for me
