This is Angie. She wants to talk about LOVE. Since early childhood you hear that love is amazing, love is all you need blablabla. Angie says that love can also be an epic fail. Let her tell you her case.
She was living till high school sure that love was not for her. She was bombarded by creepy first love stories told by her female friends. “Oh my boyfriend this, my sweet bunny that…” She found out that infatuation turned their brains into bubblegum. So she was looking down on them all arrogant and sure that she would never ever be able to behave this way as she was too smart. She was looking at all the boys around her and couldn’t believe anyone in the Earth could find them interesting or attractive.
But after all Angie also got her piece of this cake. She once went to a birthday party of one of her cousins who studied in a different school and there she met one of her cousin’s schoolmates. His name was Eli. He was tall, with dark eyes and nice smile and had that enigmatic look that drives girls crazy. Angie didn’t buy into it but she was a bit bored and she came up to him to make a small talk because why not? She presented herself and he asked why she was not dancing while everyone was already in the dancefloor. “Oh I’m just giving them a handicap. When I start dancing I will steal the scene” – she answered ironically.
He seemed at once genuinely interested. “Do you play chess? You have used the chess term” “ Actually, I do. Do you as well?” He did. They chatted a bit about their chess experience and he turned out to be quite an experienced player. Then Angie asked him what music he liked and – BINGO! – he also liked classic jazz! This was a coincidence! She started to like him really very very much. When he confessed that Big Bang theory was his favourite TV show she found out that she was already pretty much in love. Well, just kidding, you can’t fall in love with someone after 10 minutes of talk but she found their resemblance impressive – do you know many jazz, chess and Big Bang theory lovers? Neither her!
Finally Angie found a boy who was interesting to talk to. They agreed to meet some day for a game of chess. And after all as they started to chat on a messenger and meet once or twice a week for a game and intellectual chat she found out that it was hard for her to stay without him for a long time. Angie understood that she fell in love for the first time in her life with all that butterflies in the stomach stuff she had always detested. Well, that was a lesson for being arrogant. She thought that it would be nice to analyze what Eli was thinking about her. After some observation she came to the conclusion that he liked her as well, looking at her in a special way and always caressing her hair. Isn’t it the symptom?
Angie decided that time had come for a coming out. She called him out for an evening at the theater. The name of the play was “Sister, act!” which Angie found very inspiring. After the play they came out involved into the discussion. Eli was accompanying her to her house and as they came, they stopped to say goodbye. At that point Angie gave him a quick kiss on the lips. She was thrilled and scared at the same time – what if he didn’t like her after all?
He looked as if he didn’t expect it. He also seemed slightly embarrassed. He took her hand and said: “Look Angie, I’m guilty, I haven’t told you one thing”. Her heart plummeted. She understood him wrong, he didn’t like her or maybe… Maybe he already had a girlfriend! “Look, I like you a lot”,Eli said. “You are the best girl I’ve ever met (yessss, she thought, he doesn’t have a girlfriend) and you are my best friend because you are so interesting and I enjoy you company. But I should have told you from the beginning that I am gay”.
Now that Angie is telling this it seems so funny. But at that time she was so much in love that it seemed to her that her life was over for some time. She felt so awkward trying to kiss Eli not knowing that he didn’t like her at all. She broke up all relationships with him at once and suffered alone. But in some time Angie has seen how comic her friendzone was and started missing Eli badly. So one day she just called him and asked him out for chess. He is still her best friend and from time to time they are giving a good laugh at this story. She has overcome it and now if you ask her she will definitely tell you that sometimes a good friendship is much worthier and more long-lasting than teenager love.
