20 Shy Guys Of The Internet Share How They Got Their Girlfriend
Was sitting in 2nd day of bio class in college. Class had 100+ students in it. I liked to get there early to reserve my seat. Was a very shy guy and my row was always empty except me, which I didn't mind at all. Anyways, I was sitting there and I look over at the far door to watch the students pile in. A girl, obviously on the tennis team, walks in. 10/10. I look at her, she looks at me, I look away because I didn't want to be awkward.
Next thing I know, she's right next to me and asks if the seat next to me is taken. It isn't. She sits down. I don't know what to do but I have to do something. Look over and say "I'm [Bonesaparte]. What's your name?" and put my hand out. Immediately regret the decision because maybe a handshake is too formal. She awkwardly shakes it and gives me her name. I ask how long she's been playing tennis. She doesn't. She's on the golf team not the tennis team. Feel like a dumbass but keep trying.
She asks a couple of questions about me. I had just got back from living in France for a couple of years (I'm half French) and tell her. She's impressed and asks me to say a couple things in French. More impressed. Class starts. She mentions how she'll need a study buddy to get through this. I catch on. Tell her we should make a study group. She's all for it. I get her number to set the group up. Class ends. We go our separate ways.
Next day of bio. I get to class a little later than usual. Walk in. She's in her old spot. She. Saved. My. Spot. I'm on cloud 9 and never miss a day of bio. We start studying together before exams. Then we start studying together everyday. I have a car. I take her out to eat every now and then. She invites me hiking a month later. Just me and her. We go up the mountain to a spot that overlooks the city. She plays my favorite song by Blues Traveler. That's when I fall in love. Ask her out on the hike down. She says yes. First kiss. 2 years later we're still together.
She apparently hit on me. A lot. And eventually got mad and was like "DO YOU JUST NOT LIKE ME OR WHAT?!" I eventually stammered out and apology and asked her to hang out for Xmas. We've tolerated each other for 6 years this xmas lol
