So I told Taylor and she told me to go for it after I checked and double checked and then rechecked that she absolutely did not want him. So I started talking to Lucas more and with Taylor's help we became friends.
I put some serious effort into this guy, I would drag Taylor and Jen to his outdoor track meets and sit in the freezing cold because I would promise him that I would go cheer him on.
So summer vacation came and in late June I went to Bahamas with my family for two weeks and I talked to Lucas a few times and was really excited to hang out with him when I got back.
I told Lucas that I was attracted to him and that I liked him, and he gave me that nice little sugarcoated rejection..know the "You're really cute, I just don't want a girlfriend" Ouch.
So I confided in Taylor and Jen about my crappy relationship history.
