I recently reconnected with a childhood friend who I had a huge crush on growing up. He was much older than me so there was no chance for me to have anything other than a friendship. I watched him date different girls throughout the years until reality dawned on me that I had no chance with him. However, he somehow found me on social media and I was ecstatic. I stalked him a bit and found out that he rides a motorbike which only made him more attractive to me.
A few weeks after he followed me, he sent me a message letting me know who he was. I think he didn’t know that I was the little annoying girl in the estate. In his defence, I had changed a lot. So I decided to play along with it since I thought he would lose interest if he knew who I was.
“I like your motorbike,” I said, trying to spark conversation.
If there’s something I have learnt is that biker boys really love their bikes.
As expected, he ranted about it and told me about his long history with motorbikes. Honestly, he did a good job of making me like his world. I was even excited to ride his motorbike.
“It’s the same thing as being on a boda.” He explained.
I agreed even though I knew it wasn’t the same. Additionally, I wanted to impress him and show him that I was cool enough. I finally won him over and he agreed to take me out on a date. It was the most exciting thing that had happened to me in a long time. I couldn’t wait to tell my friends about him and show him off when he came to pick me up.
“I got a date for this weekend?” I excitedly told my campus friends.
I pulled out my phone and showed my friend his Instagram profile and she gasped.
“He’s so hot.” She said looking through his pictures. “How old is he?”
“Around 33 years old. He’s 10 years older than me.”
“Wow. You’re dating an older guy. Is he rich?”
“I don’t know but he has a nice motorbike.”
I had been on a dry spell for months which was unheard of for a hot campus girl but my previous relationship left me heartbroken and I wasn’t ready to put myself out there again. However, when I got that DM from my childhood crush, it was like a sign from heaven that I was ready to date again.
The only problem was that I had oversold myself and made him think that I was something I wasn’t. For starters, I was deathly afraid of motorbikes. I don’t even use Bodas and I’d rather walk till my feet bleed before using one. I tried to overcome my fear by using one for the rest of the week until I went on a date with my crush.
It wasn’t as bad as I thought. At first, I was shaking like a twig anytime the motorbike hit a pothole. I even made the rider go super slowly so I could get out in case anything happened. After a few days, I was so confident and I started to enjoy it. So I knew that I would like riding with my crush.
On Saturday, I started getting ready for the date as I chatted with the guy.
“I can’t wait to see you. Make sure you wear something sexy.” He said.
“Anything for you.”
I was happy to see that he was also excited about the date. My friends helped me pick out an outfit that would make his jaw drop. I wore a micro mini skirt and a T-shirt with sneakers since I didn’t know where he was taking me. Being an adrenaline junkie, I assumed he would take me rock climbing or something.
At around 4 pm, he texted me and told me he was on his way. Within a few minutes, he was at my school’s hostel and asked me to come out. It didn’t take me 5 minutes but by the time I got out, there was a small crowd of girls around a familiar guy.
“Andrew?” I called him to get his attention.
He looked up and saw me then walked up to hug me.
“Wow, you look better in person.” He said.
“Thanks.” I was still confused about the motorbike.
“Are we going on a date with your motorbike?”
“Yeah, you said you loved it.”
“I do. I just didn’t expect to go on a date using a motorbike.”
“It’s fun. You’ll like it.”
Meanwhile, the crowd was still there and I could see the envy in their eyes. I could also hear the whispers among them. Unfortunately, I attended a small college where everyone knew each other and was in everyone’s business. I was somewhat popular after I and my ex were dubbed the school’s power couple. However, when we broke up everything came crumbling down and it took me a while to regain my confidence.
It felt uncomfortable having so many people staring at me but my friends showed up just in time to hype me up. I introduced them to Andrew and we chatted for a while which calmed my nerves.
“Are you ready?” He asked as he revved his motorbike to the amusement of the onlookers.
“I have to change, though.”
“No, you’re good.” He said.
I trusted him and went on the bike. He helped me get on and it was surprisingly comfortable. The date went well too. However, I realized that I had nothing in common with Andrew and I had to fake my personality to impress him. It was disappointing for him that I didn’t like the things that he did but he was happy that I told him early enough before things got serious. We ended things amicably but have remained friends till today. He still picks me up with his motorbike and we go on road trips together.
