I've decided to become straight, because I SUCK AT BEING GAY. Ok, I was just at the supermarket getting lunch. The first thing I see when I'm walking in is this handsome guy walking out with his cart. This is the first guy who's turned my head at this place since I started going there 6 months ago. He's about 5'7", probably around 145-150lbs, kinda short light brown hair, nice eyes, looked right around my age, and dressed normally in a long-sleeve t-shirt and sweats. This is definitely the kind of guy I could go for. Anyway, I go about my business and pick up lunch; I'm in and out of the place in less than 5 minutes. As I'm walking out, I notice that he must've come back in for something, because he's walking in front of me while I'm heading back to my car. Turns out he's parked next to me. I want to say something to him, but I can't think quick enough and figure out what to say without making myself look like an idiot. In any case, while he's getting into his car and i'm getting into mine, we make eye contact for a split second before we both drive off. Sure, the guy was probably straight. He might've been an asshole. But there's still that "what if?" hanging over my head now. I HATE THAT! The first guy who had that effect on me I still can't get out of my head. Short story similar to the first one, you don't have to read it if you don't want to... This past summer, I went to a steakhouse with my parents for my birthday. We were being waited on by several people. There was this one guy though, who was refilling water and we kept kinda glancing at each other whenever he came over to our table. He even starts making small talk with me. Really handsome, half asian half white. I was about 80% sure he was gay too, but since I was with my parents I coudn't do anything! I remember Ferron was talking about meeting guys in the supermarket. How the hell do you start a conversation with someone you don't know without making yourself look like a moron? I'm not really afraid of getting shot down, I just don't wanna sound like a jackass.
