Without having read the other story you refer to, this still works. Kind of short but that's okay, I like reading something from the POV of the 'king of the school'.

Very sweet, a different and unique idea for a oneshot. :)

I really enjoyed this, and agree with all of it. I'm a girl who likes writing romance stories and I lean towards writing from a male's POV because I think men are under-represented in love stories. And misrepresented. And just basically everything that this rant stated. So, yeah. Guy power! lol.

i luv this.
u know, its so funny how i found this story.
i was going through the first page of the young adult stories and each one was like "she..." or "Sarah Smith did..."
they were ALL ABOUT GIRLS.
and then i was like, "i wish there were some stories from guys points of view."
and rite then i found this!
i luv it so far.
its really cute some of it.
i luv the last one... its so sweet!
can't wait to read more!

I really think that this is a superb idea. It's always the girl who tells the story. And your writing is awesome. Keep up the good work. :)

I'm glad my review inspired you . It actually inspired me, too...I'm writing out a story (old fashioned paper and pencil) and I decided to try and show the boy's feelings better. After all...his heart-break is one of the most important part of the stories because it triggers the second half of the story (the first is all about their relationship building up...with some vampiric issues). Keep up this writing. It's so adorable and amazing.

I love your whole point-of-view of the average guy. And you're a talented writer. I hope you continue to write.

I'm a girl and Chick Flicks make ME sick. It's good to see a guy sticking up for all guy kind. The way I see guys is they break into two different groups. The ones who are pretty cool and the ones who are, well, asses. The sad truth is, most of those girls in those chick stories fall in love with the latter. Of course those are the girls all guys seem to like, too. At least in all the chick flicks they are.
I guess it's about time someone at least attempted to set all these minds straight. I love the writing in general. Not many guys put their hearts into writing...which is probably I usually hate reading from male novelists. There are wonderful exceptions, but so many are, well...there's not a word to describe it actually. Great job. This dragged me in...I swear I almost cried. I know, girls cry all the time. Not this girl, believe me. It takes something really well written or some terrible, miserable real life thing to get to me. I love the way you write. Tell it like it is. Make me actually HAVE to read the whole thing. Not just want, but HAVE to.
One more thing...I do believe you've only been exposed to those chicky girls, the physical ones you talk about. There are average jane's, too, and their dilema is actually quite similar. Always the friend, never more. I'm thinking, that's the perfect kind of girl for Average Joe. Joe and Jane Average...That has an interesting ring, don't it? Ah that sounds cheap though, the way I worded that. But I can't think of any other way to put it...Sorry for the sap. I'm trying. This is one of the first reveiws I've ever written for an original piece.

I'd seriously never looked at it from that way before, but I love it. It all makes sense and the way you presented it is very easy to follow and agreable.
I love the line, "“As long as you’re happy, I’m happy”. But it’s never true. It’s never true. But that’s our last ounce of dignity, of pride." because it sums up so much in such simple words.
I salute to you! The guys have it just as hard.
