I never went on a date with a boy while I was in high school.
Hell, I never even went on a date with a boy while I was in college. No, I waited a looooong time to jump into the man-on-man pool.
But back in high school, the thought of dating a guy, as secretly appealing as it was, it just wasn't something that I thought would ever happen.
Which is a shame, because I knew some cute boys in high school. And one of them was actually out of the closet. He was cute, and sexy, and confident. And he was a senior, so, you know, he was way out of my league. He graduated in 1993, and went on to live his life, and then I graduated in 1996, and went on to live mine.
Like I said, I never went on a date with a boy while I was in high school. So I never, in my wildest dreams, thought I would ever go out on a date with that cute, sexy, confident, out-of-the-closet, out-of-my-league senior.
But tonight that's exactly what I did. I went on a date with Dustin.
And that was my New Thing for the day: I went on a date with a guy I went to high school with. I'll fill you in on the details tomorrow. But let me just say this:
It was the best bad date I have ever had in my life.
