Michelle's T.G.I.Fridays: Looking For A "School Boo"

***Michelle is a girl that grew up next door to me and we attended the same church. Now she's in her early 20s and living the single life. She goes on these dates that are either lovely or horrific. She's slightly terrified at the thought of committing to someone any time soon. And of course, she has the occasional man who really catches her eye and her heart.***

Quick Recap [The last time I wrote about Michelle, I was talking about the time period right before she went back to school. It's been five weeks since then. Wow, that's a long time. But Date B wanted her time and so did Michael. She had to split up her time before heading back to school carefully. So, how did it turn out?] Read the TGIFridays posts.

Well, she chose Michael. I'm not surprised by that. One could guess that from the fact that he has a name and not a date letter! But that was then and now I must tell a quick recap of the last five weeks.

Michelle has been back to visit the city twice since she went away to school. Stupid Michael! I say that because she's only seen him once. I don't know if him going to visit her isn't a option (I haven't asked), but when she's in town, why can't he make time to see her, especially when she gives days of notice before she gets here. He's definitely exhibiting behavior which is familiar to me. It's called he's-just-not-that-into-you behavior.

The person in me that always wants to give the benefit of the doubt doesn't want to completely down him. Maybe he is into her and he just doesn't know how to show it...? Maybe he's super sensitive and isn't really able to deal with the fact that she seems to be moving on into her life with or without him...? I don't know what it is. But I don't like hearing from her that he stood her up. Even if it does mean we get to get our Sex and the City on by having martinis at our favorite bar.

On to the point of the title of this post. Michelle is bored when it comes to guys. There isn't anyone at her school she wants to date. In fact, I don't think she's been on a date in the last five weeks. That Date B guy is out of the picture, he was a mess anyway. But at her school, there should at least be someone to flirt with and hang out with. But alas, tis not to be this semester. No new transfers, no one has gotten hot over the summer.

There was this one guy who flirted with her at the beginning. He was a guy in her major who she was having her first class with. She noticed him noticing her and noticed him too. Then she found out that he had a girlfriend. Who he had been with for a while. Who was pregnant. Which begged the question, "why are you flirting with me?!"

There was this other guy too, who happened to be the fraternity brother of the first guy. He likes Michelle; she sees him as just a friend. She's been enjoying the attention, but not wanting to encourage it by spending too much time with him.

So basically, she's having a lot of false starts. The semester is 1/3 over at this point and still no school boo. Her Chicago boo is sometimes full of crap, so Michelle's love life doesn't seem to awesome right now. But I imagine it will improve sooner rather than later. And even if it doesn't improve to the point of her having a guy, there will always be silly/crazy/funny stories to share.
