Shut Up And Dance With Me

, , , , | Friendly | November 9, 2020

One of my older cousins gets married when I’m about eleven years old. At the reception, I want to go on the dance floor but need a partner for the song that’s playing, so I seek out a boy who looks my age, even though I’ve never met him before.

Me: “Hey, do you wanna dance?”

Boy: “No.”

While I’m initially disappointed, one of the men on the groom’s side of the family saw the rejection and offers to dance with me, instead.

I get tired a few dances later and come off the dance floor. The boy comes up to me again.

Boy: “Hey, uh, do you have a crush on me?”

Me: “No. I just wanted to dance.”

Boy: “Oh.”

Take note: if someone asks you to dance, maybe they just want to dance!
