The Astounding Human Yo-Yo

Submitted by Aaron:

Jenny and I had seen each other a few times, and this particular afternoon, we were messing around on her couch, tickling, kissing, and doing whatever people on couches who have been seeing each other do.

We got really hot and heavy and all of a sudden she jerked away.  She said, "Oh my God, you have to go."

Confused, I asked her, "Why?"

She said, "This is just all too quick.  I can't.  You have to leave."

Okay, so I jumped in my car and left.  Two minutes later, she called.  "Can you come back?"

I said, "You just kicked me out."

She replied, "I know, but I think that I want you here, now."

Okay, so I turned around and went back to her house.  She gave me a big hug and pulled me back to the couch, where we continued where we had left off just ten minutes earlier.

Soon enough, she pulled away again.  "Okay.  I'm sorry.  I can't do this.  We have to stop.  You have to go."

"I'm not going to come back this time," I warned her.

She didn't stop me, so I started heading off to my car.  I had about climbed in when she caught up with me and grabbed my arm.  "Oh my God!" she said, "Don't go!  I'm sorry, I'm just really confused.  Maybe we can just go back in and hold each other for a bit."

I was losing patience, but I still wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt.  So we went back inside and spooned on her couch for about twenty minutes without saying anything.

Finally, she said, "Okay.  Now I'm sure."

"You are?"

"Yeah.  You should go."

"Bye," I said, and left for home.

A half-hour later, my phone rang.  It was her, and I let it go to voicemail.  When I listened to it later on, the message said, "Hey Aaron.  Maybe you should come back.  I just... I don't know.  I'm just really confused and think it might be good to have you here."



  1. What city do you live in? It's a shot in the dark but I dated a girl named Jenny that pulled that shit on me all the time.

  2. Um...I don't know anyone who thinks that 'tickling' is akin to fooling around. That's pretty creepy, dude.

  3. Curious. I wonder if she was a victim of rape?

  4. Obviously it was maybe too much, too soon for her. So that's the girl you were dating. So what? Is it all about you? The narcissism running through the writers on this website is, well, boring.

  5. maybe she just wanted to get laid, and you only played with it.

  6. She was probably just not comfortable enough yet... should have quit the physical, and just talked for a while.. she'd have been longing for more after a while, but by that time be more comfortable around you :)

  7. You shoulda plied her with alcohol and gotten her crazy drunk and then jumped her bones.

    Just sayin'

  8. The first time you came back, instead of continuing where you left off, you should have talked about her problem.
