I'm a guy who's waited a few years already for a girl. I've just always felt she was "the one." We met in high school when I was a senior and she was a freshman, now I'm 21 in college in the same town and she's 18 and a senior in HS.

That was nearly three years ago and since then my technique has greatly improved and become more subtle.
