Things just keep getting better...
It seems that the young lady I have been so smittened with for the last semester is a lesbian. We talk all the time, and I have expressed my attraction for her on several occasions. I have asked her out at least ten times, but each time she would be busy or she had to go home to visit family on the weekends or some other reason. I was starting to get a little discouraged, but I persisted because I really like her. It wasn't until I saw her dorm mate a few minutes ago that I found out the reason for the countless number of rejections. It went a little something like this:
Me: "Hey, what's up? Have you seen ******* around lately? I haven't seen her in a few days, and I wanted to see if she would like to go with me to see 'Hair' friday night."
Nameless dorm mate: "What's that?"
Me: "It's a musical. I have been trying to get her to go out with me for a while, and this would be the perfect opportunity for me to show her that I am 'cultured'."
NDM: "Do you mean a date?!"
Me: "If you wanna call it that. I like her a lot, but I not sure if she's interested in me that way."
NDM: "You do know she's a lesbian, right?"
Me: (puzzled look on my face) "Huh?!"
NDM: "She has a girlfriend!"
Me: "Yeah, right. I'm sure she would have told me all this when I asked her out before."
NDM: "You don't believe me, I'll prove it."
After that, we went to the computer lab in the business building, where she went to Yahoo! Messenger and pulled up her profile. At the bottom of the page, there was a link to a BlackPlanet blog page. And there it was in big rainbow colored letters:
...along with a picture of a very attractive girl and the caption "My Baby"
I continued to read more, and my heart slowly sank to my stomach. Her dormmate, aware of my disappointment, gave me a hug (...one of those "everything's-gonna-be-alright" hugs) and walked away.
I need to do some heavy drinking right now.
