During college at the University of Michigan, I didn’t go out on a lot of dates. We had tens of thousands of students between the two main campuses, but I was so busy that it was really hard to approach women outside of the few people I met in my various classes. The few times I tried to pursue someone romantically, it ended in failure. When you keep having the same results no matter what you do, it gets so daunting and frustrating that it’s really easy to just give up altogether. That’s what I did after the fourth or fifth failure at a serious attempt at courting another person. Now that I’ve graduated, I feel like I can finally get out of my apartment and enjoy the city. Some of my favorite restaurants are on Washtenaw Ave, which is a short walk from my apartment on E University Ave. I was waiting on my food one afternoon and randomly started chatting with a girl that appeared to be the same age as I. By the time we were ready to depart, she randomly said that we should keep talking. Before I knew it, she gave me her phone number. We started texting back and forth instantly and I then asked her on a date. During our initial conversations, I learned that she was an Art History Major at the University of Michigan, so I asked her if she’d like to accompany me to the University of Michigan Museum of Art. The only problem is that I was so nervous before the date I decided to smoke some weed I had purchased from a dispensary near Gallup Park. I was too high for my date, but she didn’t seem to mind.
