forever & always Cringe-worthy relationship confessions to make you smile
Whether it’s a classic move or a cringe-worthy date gone wrong, these relationship confessions will make you smile
Before we even started dating, my husband and I used to go on nightly strolls around our neighbourhood. He finally asked me for an official dinner date before one of our walks. As we walked down the path, I noticed signs posted every few metres, spelling out ‘ Will you be my girlfriend?’ At the end of the path, he gave me a bunch of roses and asked me again, in person. Years later, we went on a similar walk and he asked me to marry him.
Back in high school, I left a classmate several anonymous letters in his locker. I’m talking cut-outs from magazines, ransom note-style letters. At the time, I thought I was quirky and romantic but, looking back, it was just creepy. I’m so glad he never figured out it was me!
the scene stealer
I was sitting alone at a friend’s wedding when a good-looking stranger started chatting to me. He made a remark about how difficult it is to ask someone out at a wedding without stealing the show and asked if I had any advice. I said he should send the lucky girl a piece of cake and a note because who could say no to a classic romantic move like that? When I came back to my seat after dancing there was a slice of cake with a note saying: ‘ Hope I stole your heart instead of the show.’ We’re married now.
dinner date fail
I asked a man I’d been chatting to on Tinder out for dinner and we met at the restaurant on a Friday night. Halfway through our meal a friend of his came up to our table to say hi. When his friend asked for an introduction, my date looked anxious and said, ‘ This is my friend... um... Kelsey.’ Except that’s not my name. He had clearly forgotten it!
A friend of mine knew I had a huge crush on one of our other good friends and was on a mission to get us together. His grand plan? Arriving at my house, dragging me into his car, and dropping me off at my crush’s front door... without shoes, my cellphone or my wallet! Without too many options available to me, I knocked on the door and told him how I felt. We’ve been dating for eight years now and I couldn’t be happier!
never bee n kissed
As a teenager, my first boyfriend and I were waiting outside the movies for my mom to pick me up. We hadn’t kissed yet and he chose this moment to suddenly kiss me. I wasn’t expecting it so it was a bit messy and awkward. What made it even worse was that my mom arrived at that exact moment, put the car window down and yelled, ‘ First kiss! Way to go!’ The thought of it still makes me cringe.
