Setting Up A Hollywood Romance

| Sacramento, CA, USA | Advice, Flirting/How We Met, Popular

(My girlfriend and I have been dating for seven years. We’d known each other through a friends group for a while. Our friends had always thought we had a thing.)

Friend #1: *through group text* “We should go to a movie!”

Friend #2: “Ya! We should see [Popular New Movie].”

Friend #3: “Ya! Let’s go on [Day two days from now].”

Almost-Girlfriend: “Sounds fun!”

Me: “Sounds great!”

(The next day Friend #3 texts this.)

Friend #3: “Sorry, can’t go to movie! Going to my grandparents.”

(It’s one day away from the movie when Friend #2 texts.)

Friend #2: “Super sorry, it’s my mom’s birthday! Completely forgot; can’t go to movie.”

(It comes the day of the movie. My almost-girlfriend and I are there talking.)

Almost-Girlfriend: “Where’s [Friend #1]?”

Me: “I don’t know. Maybe there’s traffic?”

(We then get a text from my friend.)

Friend #1: “Got in a car accident; can’t get there. You two have fun. ;-)”

(We’re confused as for why he used a winky face, but see the movie together and forget about it. The next week we’re all together.)

Friend #1: “So, how was the movie, you two?”

(As he asks this he winks. My almost-girlfriend and I look at each other.)

Almost-Girlfriend: “Um, it was actually really good!”

Me: “It sucks you guys couldn’t come.”

(All three of our friends smirked and looked at each other, and then explained that they had planned to get us together. Not long after that we started dating. Thank god I made it to that movie, or I would have missed the most wonderful girl in the world.)


Here We Pokémon Go Again, Part 6

| CT, USA | Boyfriend/Girlfriend

(My boyfriend and I work in different departments of the same place. On a night we are both closing, I finish my closing tasks before he does, so I go to sit and wait for him. I open up the new Pokémon Go game and see something.)

Me: “Babe! There’s a Squirtle outside! I’m gonna go walk around the building to see if I can find it!”

Boyfriend: “Here, I don’t have one yet. Take my phone, too!”

(Our manager couldn’t stop laughing at us.)

Let’s Get Physics(al)

| IN, USA | Boyfriend/Girlfriend

(My girlfriend and I are in a long distance relationship and haven’t seen each other in a few months. This occurs when we are texting each other, wishing for the ability to teleport.)

Me: “I miss you, too. Stupid physics. Not letting us teleport.”

Girlfriend: “I know.”

Me: “If it weren’t for physics and law enforcement, I’d be unstoppable.”

Girlfriend: “Oh yeah? Why law enforcement?”

Me: “I feel like getting arrested would put a damper on things.”

Girlfriend: “Arrested for what? What laws are you breaking?”

Me: “The laws of physics!”

Girlfriend: “Okay, You’re a dork.”

Me: “Yup!”

Girlfriend: “But you’re my dork.”

Me: “Exactly. And that’s how it should be. Forever and ever. Until we get a little dork. We’ll pick him-or-her out from the dork store… or from the stork, for short!!”

Girlfriend: “Oh, my god, I love you!”
