The Question Club
There is this guy I know. He's nice, but... he is just NOT my type at ALL. I am not attracted to him in the least. But he has a crush on me. A few months ago, I was in the library and he sat next to me and he said, "Oh yeah—I've heard people tell me that you liked me." And today, he came up to me in the hall when I was going to first period and he said, "I hear you don't have a date for prom--do you want to go with me?" And I said something stupid like, I have a friend who might take me, when it's all pure B.S. Finally, I got the nerve to tell him that I wasn't going to be his prom date, and I said, "I'm going with friends [at the time I WAS], but I will SEE you there".
Apparently, he took "I'll see you there" as "I'll STILL be your date". So now he has told tons of people that I am going with him, and I'm not. I don't want a date. I'm very flattered that he ASKED, but I just want to go alone, and besides, I have to take pictures for the yearbook most of the night anyway. And I don't want to be cruel to him, because I know how it feels to have an unrequited crush. How on Earth can I let him down?
