Why I Hate Being a Silver Medal
When I say “silver medal”, I’m not talking about the Olympics or sports or anything like that. I’m talking about men. I know most girls hate being a guy’s first when the v-card cashing in isn’t mutual. But I think the worst is being a guy’s second.
My first experience being a silver medal was during freshman year. There was a guy I thought was cute and funny, and I had him in my room late one night watching all of the Saw movies. My roommate was going to be gone all night, so I figured I’d make a move…and he decided to be a whiny bitch about it!
Let’s rewind here a second: this dude’s girlfriend (who he tried to keep after going to college and who I later found out was only a freshman when he was a senior in high school. scuzz bag) broke up with him 4 months ago, but he’d been flirting with me excessively. The movie marathon was his idea. The timing, in my head, was perfect.
Sure, I could be considered the rebound girl, but I wasn’t looking for anything serious. So I start kissing him, and he starts crying! YES. CRYING!
His Ex was dating other guys, they’d only gone out for 2 months, been broken up for like I said, 4 months, and yet this guy won’t stop talking about how “she still loves me” and “we’re going to get back together, I know it”. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing! Until I found out that this girl was his first. I proceeded to give him a hug, tell him it was ok, and send him home.
I really don’t understand why guys won’t let go of their firsts. I know the one guy I de-virginized in a one night stand a year ago still calls me every time I’m in town (how he finds out, I will never know). But honestly, not to sound mean or anything, but if any guys are reading this: if it wasn’t a serious relationship, or it’s been a really long time, or the girl was a complete skank, let it go!
If you can’t let it go, at least don’t complain about it to the next girl trying to do you. Most of the time, she doesn’t want to hear it. And if the girl’s a total stranger to you, chances are she just wants to hook up and leave. Sans tears.
Any other silver medals out there who are fed up?
