When I was a kid and teen we all ran in a huge group. Our neighborhood was crammed with kiddos. It was great. When I was about sixteen, my friend L invited a new outside guy to play flag football with us. We played softball in the summer and flag football in the fall -- flag because my dad didn't want us hurting the boys, hehe just kidding. . . anyway, he came a few times and then after one game and after all of us had dispersed to our own homes, there was a knock on the front door and this new guy was standing there. He was a cutie. And, he asked me out. I was panic stricken as according to my friend, they were an item. I said as much and he looked most confused and said, no, they weren't dating. We chatted a few more minutes and I declined as it was the right thing to do, or so I thought, being loyal to my friend. He had no sooner left the driveway, when the phone was ringing and my friend was screaming in my ear how horrible i was etc etc etc. . .to this day I have wished I had said I would go out with him, instead of trying to do the right thing by my friend. I never saw him again and it took like three weeks for my friend to quit giving me a hard time about him coming unbidden to my door. . .
Is there someone in your past you wished you had gone out with, but didn't??
