Do you know what every shy nerdy boy's biggest fear is when he goes to ask a girl out? That she will think he is the most disgusting human on earth and he will taint her with his filth by even thinking about her. So we talked a couple times. You were smiley and nice. We weren't at the point where it was comfortable to ask you out, but the school semester was ending and I didn't think I'd see you anymore so I went for it. Yes it was awkward because it was through email. But people do that, that's not so bad. And it was a short simple email, totally normal. And your refusal was polite and fair so that was that. Well, I did end up seeing you around after that. So why do you now glare at me and barely mumble a hello? Why do I get the iciest shoulder ever? I'm not even trying to hit on you or talk to you or anything anymore. I got the message after that email. It's nerve-wracking, but I don't think it's actually wrong to ask someone out. So why are you acting like I did something wrong? You're cute.. or you were until you started making all my nerd fears come true. I asked you out, take it as a compliment.. GEEEEZZZZZ!! SRSLY.
