A Sad Note

Share

I began dating about the time during my junior year of high school. In those days, I spent my time with a group of about 10 friends; a mix of boys and girls. Being a little naive and inexperienced, I didn't really notice that one of the group, a cute and vivacious girl named Jill, was paying particular attention to me. Jill had dated a lot of different guys by this time already, whereas I hadn't really gone out on a real date.

One day in October of my junior year, Marie, another girl in the group who was as aggresive as Jill, pulled me aside and asked me when I was going to ask Jill out. I was a little surprised, and remarked that I thought that Jill had a boyfriend at the time. Marie almost burst out laughing, and chided me for not noticing how much Jill had been coming on to me in the preceeding weeks. I spent the next few days trying to get the courage up to call Jill and ask her out. I finally did, and much to my surprise, she accepted. I later found out that Marie had told Jill that I was going to call her, so she was expecting the call, and got a big kick out of my nervousness). We ended up going to a movie together, and that was just the beginning. Our dating progressed as the school year continued on. We became boyfriend and girlfriend, and spent as much time together as possible, both in and out of school.

As much as I liked Jill, I was pretty sure I wasn't in love with her, and I'm pretty sure she wasn't in love with me either, but we had a nice high school relationship. As the school year started to wind down, I began imagining how nice it would be to have a girlfriend during the summer; particularly one who looked so good both in and out of a bikini. However, I started to get the sense that Jill might be looking around for another guy. It wasn't anything specific that lead me to think this - just a gut feeling. She wasn't as interested in spending every minute with me as she had been just a month or so earlier, and she tried to change the subject every time I started talking about my plans for the two of us for the upcoming summer.

I'd always rendevous with Jill in our school library when we had an open period, and so she would have access to my notebooks. One day, about 2 weeks before the end of the school year, I left my books with her when I had to go talk to a teacher about a project. I came back to the library a few minutes later to find Jill gone. Right away, I noticed a folded piece of paper sticking out of my notebook. My name, in Jill's handwriting, was on the outside. I openned it up, and it was almost as if I knew what was coming. She told me that she thought we should see other people, and that she hoped we could still be friends. Even though I was inexperienced in the world of relationships at the time, I knew that what she wrote was incredibly trite. Still, I was crushed. My plans for the summer were destroyed, and I felt humiliated. Instinctively though, I decided that I had to pretend that getting dumped by her was no big deal. I couldn't let her see that she had hurt me. I stayed in the library stewing for a while, and then came up with what I thought was a brilliant plan: I would quickly leave a note for Jill. At the bottom of the same sheet of paper she had written her note on, I scribbled "I was thinking of the same thing", and then I crammed it into her locker.

I tried to avoid Jill the rest of the day, but I did see Marie in the hallway as the end of the school day. I knew that Marie and Jill talked about everything, but what she said really made me even more mad. She apparently knew in advance that Jill was going to dump me, and had also seen the note I sent back. She said that Jill was really surprised at how well I had taken it, because she thought I was really going to be hurt. I guess I had fooled her by acting like it was no big deal, but I also realized that I had blown a great chance to tell her how cowardly her break up note had been. Eventually, Jill and I did become friends again, and we even ended up going out a few times that summer after all, but it was never the same again. At least I learned a good lesson about trying to act cool.
