This was over a year ago in my senior year of high school. I had reconnected with a guy that I had a crush on back in 9th grade. We had three out of seven classes together that year and sat near each other in two. We would talk almost every day and became good friends. I had just read The Secret To Teen Power over the summer before starting the school year and was excited to use it.
Around October, homecoming was coming up. I decided that I wanted to go with him. I would tell my mom that I’m going to have a date to homecoming. I would have gone regardless of having a date or not, but I was convinced that I would be going with him. I remember one day in class he told me how he was going with another friend of his. Honestly, I was a bit disappointed, but I was still convinced that I would at least have a date to homecoming. A day or two before the dance, he tells me how his date had to cancel because she couldn’t take off from work. I was so excited and I knew it was The Secret working in my favor, but I remained calm expecting him to ask me.
In the next class we had together, I overheard him telling another female friend and I thought that maybe he decided he was just going to go alone or ask her. At some point, he asked if he could talk to me after class. I knew what was coming next. As we were walking together towards our next class, he asked me if I wanted to go with him. I of course, said yes. I remember smiling really hard as I told my mom what hapenned. I had a lot of fun that night.
