A scary story every week for my YouTube channel — My bloody HEART is YOURS

I’ve never really been good at dating, for whatever reason I always seem to say the wrong thing at the most inappropriate time. My struggle to find a soulmate has been to the say the least uneventful, though I have gone on plenty of dates; maybe perhaps it’s me I just never seem to make a connection with; well anyone. So when my best friend Jim asked me to go on a double date with him on Valentines Day I was bit skeptical.

“So what do you think man?” Jim eagerly asked me.

I just stared at him for several seconds with a blank expression on my face, wanting to say yes but something pricked at the back of my mind to say no.

“I don’t know bro, how does she look” I asked back hoping my lack of enthusiasm would dissuade him.

Jim chuckled and realized me asking about her appearance he knew he had me on the hook; ready to reel me.

“Dude, she’s smoking like a freaking 10” he told me.

I could feel my stomach grind into knots from anxiety, a bit of sweat accumulated on my brow but I didn’t want to let Jim know, he was my best friend and he needed me to “take one for the team”, so I reluctantly agreed.

“Yes! You won’t regret it dude, trust me she’s going to steal your heart away” Jim said as he patted me on my shoulder, doing his best to hype me up for the upcoming holiday.

The dreadful day that I had been hiding from for years arrived and I contemplated the idea of just hibernating in some cave away from everyone; but I made a promise to Jim and before I could even get a second to try to come up with an excuse to cancel Jim had already texted me; telling me he was on his way over to pick me up with the girls. I let out a heavy sigh and did my best to swallow my own trepidation as I finished getting ready. I looked in the mirror as I was brushing my hair and just stared at my own reflection for what seemed to be hours, the man that was looking back at me was a shell of its former self; I use to be a lot more confident or perhaps I was just younger and naive, but now I’m so jaded when it comes to the prospect of finding love.

“Just give it a chance man” I whimpered underneath my breath.
