I have 3 (well, 4) stories to tell, going in chronological order. Im going to preface this by saying that i have dark skin, big lips, a wide nose, and short 4c hair. Im also tall and scrawny lol. My friend who i will be talking about is biracial, light skin freckles, long hair, you know the deal. Ill also say that i don’t listen to kpop really that much. All the people
Mentioned in my story are pretty attractive too. Sorry for the walls of text, im on mobile. Also sorry for any grammar mistakes
My first ambw encounter happened in my freshman year of high school. I had multiple classes with this one particular boy who was Korean. I never really showed any interest in him all throughout the year, but i did notice that he was hilarious. Towards the middle of the year i start to become more attracted to him, and my friend (not the one mentioned above-this one is Chinese) did as well. She would point out his biceps and his tan and idk that made me really find him attractive (he was well built for a freshman, what can i say?).
One day she made it very obvious to him that i found him attractive, and from then i started to notice him acting strangely towards me. He would stare at me, then pretend to look away when I caught him. He would also completely act as if I were invisible when we worked as a group, which made me really confused.
Fast forward to near the end of the year. We were both in Japanese class, learning how to say 欲しいand ~たい sentences (“i want” and “i want to do…”) and i noticed him looking at me really weirdly, like really weird. as an excessive. We played a game called fruits basket. To spare the word count i won’t describe the game but it has a pretty simple concept which involves saying a sentence out loud to a group. We each had four pre-written sentences to use but! He ran out of sentences (looking back on it it probably was intentional) so he had to make up a sentence on the spot. Well, he kind of stood there for awhile, paced around kinda nervously, then stood directly in front of me, like less than a foot away even though he had more that enough space to stand anywhere else. He looks me straight in the eyes and says 彼女は欲しいです. Everyone in my class is just like… “What” because we haven’t learned that vocab before and basically we all suck at Japanese. Im looking back at him straight in the eyeballs cause… Idk I didn’t know where else to look haha his gaze was so intense. I didn’t understand what he said either.
A few awkward moments pass, then my Japanese teacher translates it for us. He said “i want a girlfriend” directly to me! In a class full of people!! I didn’t know what to do because i was so overwhelmed lol. I just looked down (im still mad at myself for doing that) and pretended to not realize, which must have been so embarrassing for him fml
occurs during junior year. My friend (whom i described above) and this Chinese guy hit it off, but really nothing comes of it. Idk why im sharing this, but everyone agreed they would be a cute couple.
also junior year. The Korean guy mentioned above is again in my classes. He still looks at me and stares sometimes, and even his brother (who graduated the year before) would look at me with a weird knowing look lol. I told my friend about my attraction to him (the biracial friend) and she decides to tell the Chinese guy because him and the Korean guy were friends. They talk for a moment, then the Chinese guy yells at me “im sorry! You’re an amazing person!!” Im like, “WTF” cause im all the way down the hallway. my friend comes back and tells me the Korean guy had been in a relationship for over 1.5 years. Im like, okay. I didn’t want to be a homewrecker so i kinda backed off. I learn way later that he was not in a relationship and the dude blatantly lied to me. Im not sure why honestly. Whatever im over it.
Ok last and most important story tbh.
Sophomore year (ok i lied im not going in chronogical order) i meet this junior who draws really well (im an artist myself btw) and he takes notice of my artistic abilities (hes Chinese, but not the same guy as the other stories, ill call him bob). Bob comes up to me one day and goes “wtf you’re a really good artist, teach me your ways” so im like, aight. I really wasnt attracted to bob at the time.
Time goes by and we become pretty good friends. I start taking an interest in bob because of his talent and amazing personality, but he really didnt show any interest in me so i kinda kept it on the down low. Near the end of junior year, though, i find it harder to mask my feelings, so i tell him how I feel. To my surprise, he felt the same way! He asked me to prom, but i couldn’t go, whatever though.
Two weeks later we officially become a couple! It truly is a dream come true yall. I didn’t want to get all mushy but here i am lol. He told me he had a crush on me almost since we first started being friends (he hid his interest really well but looking back on it i do notice a few hints i didn’t notice before) but was afraid of what i would say so he kept it hidden. For all yall girls out there, whatever race you may be and whatever race your love interest may be, tell them you like them! You never know what can happen :)
