Men are always accused of trying to sleep around with every woman that gives them a chance, but it is not true.
There was a woman in college who liked me and one of my boys Darryl said “dude you are next. She wants to sleep with you.” Let’s call her Lilly so I do not get sued.
I told my boy it was not happening. I did not find Lilly appealing and I was not going to do it.
“Dude you are crazy. She is fine.”
Well she made her move a week later. We were at the dance club on a Saturday night my senior year at Central Michigan University when she came over to slow dance the final dance of the evening. It was some sappy song called “Sailing” or something like that. Afterwards she offered to drive me home. I initially declined.
But when we got outside it was so damn cold that I accepted her ride. I planned on thanking Lilly and go to my apartment.
Well guess what? Home girl got into an auto accident on the way to my place and was slightly shaken up. I offered to have her come inside. She did. We talked and I told her she could stay.
We slept together but did not have sex. I did not even make a move even though my roommates were out of town for the weekend. There was just something about her. She was not bad looking. She just wasn’t my cup of tea and I just could not do it.
We kissed briefly and I rolled over and went to sleep. I know she was mad but I didn’t care. I was tired.
Lilly was pissed and when I woke up she was gone. A few days later someone told me she was spreading the word that “I must have been gay or something” because I turned that down.
My instincts were right. My boy got with that and got the itches. It wasn’t serious but he went to the clinic to clean it up. I of course laughed at him when he said: “You must have a sixth sense or something.”
I don’t. I just didn’t like her. I am no saint. I just couldn’t do it with her. But I wonder if young guys take advantage of every opportunity they get? Or do guys turn women down? Or is it just the other way around?
