Here's my story:
My sophomore year of college, I took a class that used a particularly expensive textbook (and that's saying something, since most textbooks are outrageously priced anyway). To avoid bankrupting all of his students, the professor suggested that we get into groups of two or three, buy the book as a group, and then we could turn in our assignments as a group. In the class with me was a good friend of mine who played for the school football team. He was a year ahead of me, but we had the same major, so we took a lot of classes together and had the same advisor (actually, come to think of it, there's another really, really embarrassing story that has to do with him, too. If I get up the nerve, I might share it for next Tuesday.) Anyway, we were good friends, so as soon as the professor suggested we form groups, he asked if I'd like to be in a study group with him and one of his football teammates. I said yes, not only because he was my closest friend in the class but also because his teammate was really cute.
That night, I was hanging out with a group of girls in my dorm, and I mentioned that I was going to be in a study group with these two guys and that one of them was extremely cute (not that the other wasn't, but we'd been friends for a year and he had a girlfriend, so being in his group wasn't really news.) I couldn't remember the cute guy's last name, but my school had a directory that had a picture of each student in it (talk about a stalker's dream come true), so I ran to get it and look him up. When I found his picture, I ran in to show the other girls, and I squealed in typical girly fashion, "Isn't he sooo cute?" I passed his picture around, and everyone agreed that he was definitely attractive.
The next time we had class, he sat down next to me and said, "So, I hear you have a crush on me?" I was like, "What? No I don't!" To which he replied, "Yeah, you do. Someone told me that you showed my picture to a bunch of your friends and said I was 'sooo cute.'"
Ummm.... awesome. That wasn't uncomfortable at all. Nor was the fact that for the whole rest of the semester, I had to go to his apartment once a week to work on assignments. And that he kept trying to convince me to make out with him, even though he had a girlfriend, because he knew I thought he was "sooo cute."
Actually, we ended up becoming good friends, but I still cringe every time I think about him confronting me with my squealing about how cute he was. Also, to this day, I never found out which girl ratted me out.
