Back in 1977 high school students Karen Lynch and Rick Hayward went on their first date.

Karen was excited about how things had gone but was left confused when Rick never called again.

They both grew up and moved on with their lives, but 33 years later Karen found out the heartbreaking truth about why Rick never asked her out on a second date.

But this story has a heart breaking end.

Karen and Rick both attended Pennsylvania High School when they went on their first date.

They went to a local bowling alley in Willow Grave and Karen thought they had an instant connection – something that doesn’t happen too often.

She left the date excited about what the future might hold – so she waited for Rick to call.
