The Dating Game: Missed Opportunity?

So this story is a little different from the others.

This one isn’t about someone that I dated but someone that I wish I had dated.


After Kevin, I was pretty much done with relationships. I didn’t date anyone else during my Junior and Senior years.

As a second semester senior, I transferred into an International Business class right before the end of the add/drop period. I liked to use my electives to take extra business classes and I thought this one would be interesting. It wasn’t. I hated that class, but I didn’t mind it.

I ended up sitting next to one of the most beautiful men that I have ever seen. I’m not kidding. He was gorgeous, tall, and very nicely dressed. Just being near him gave me butterflies. Now that doesn’t happen often. I’ve met famous people and never been so nervous. I’m always totally chill, but not around him.

Maybe it would have been easier if we didn’t have moments where he smiled at me if we passed each other or sitting next to each other and “accidentally” bumping shoulders. He had this cute, shy smile that was sort of crooked. Ugh! And his voice was heavenly.

I constantly thought about saying something, but I just didn’t know what to say. I could have said something about the class but everybody knew that I didn’t give a damn about that class.

There was one day, he showed up to class in a suit. OMG. My heart stopped for just a second.

I’ll admit, I didn’t know much about him. And y’all know I don’t believe in instalove. It wasn’t like that, but there was something about him. From the little that learn, he was very reserved and professional. I thought he was just really mature and I was assuming he was either a sophomore or junior. I found out afterwards that he was an adult student. Bachelor’s or MBA, I don’t know, but I didn’t care. At this point I figured, it’s my last semester and it’d be stupid to get into something then.

So, nothing ever came of it. After the semester was over, I did send him a friend request on Facebook (under the influence of alcohol and encouraged by my intoxicated friends). He accepted it but we still never really talked. I was too chicken to send him a message haha. I really regret it even now and it’s been 3 years. I’m kind of hoping that one day we’ll just run into each other but I realize that is totally unrealistic and ridiculous. Plus, there’s no way a guy that handsome is single. I don’t even know if he was when we met. If only.
