Declarations of Love...
Our readers doing crazy things for love right here, right now!
In my attempt to spend time with my newly developed crush, I tried to invite him anonymously, via text, to a party.
Me: Hey! Free cheeseburgers, come and party.
Him: Free cheeseburgers? Who is this?
Me: Wait, who is this?
Him: You texted me about free cheeseburgers?
Me: Oh! I’m texting on behalf of my friend, I just realized I have the wrong number, but you should come anyway, it’s free cheeseburgers!
Him: I can’t, but have a good time.
Fail. Now what? Interestingly, his friends showed up and I suggested that they invite him. I offered to call him, and asked for his number. “You’re kidding me! I was texting this number by accident” and I explained the “cheeseburger” story. In the end, he came to the party and I explained the funny “mistaken” number conversation. He even labelled me as “free cheeseburgers” in his contacts. We have been friends ever since but, I have never told him that I liked him as anything more. Three years later I still feel the same way.
Craziest love thing I have ever done? Telling him how I feel for the first time, in the Pique.
- “Free Cheeseburgers”
This is the craziest thing I’ve done in the name of love — written this letter to the Pique to be published in the February 14 edition. I told you Sarah that you should read the Valentine’s contest in Pique. Today I’m going to tell you my feelings, here. When I met you for the first time at ESL school I wasn’t conscious of you. But your unconditional kindness was really fascinating to me. Now, seeing your smile at school in the morning is the most favourite moment for me. I’ve never felt this way before. I want to tell you. I love you Sarah. I love you. Today, I’m waiting for you at the bus stop you usually use. I’d like you to come there if your answer is, YES.
