short but not so sweet

My boyfriend took me out for a nice dinner. During it, he got up to use the bathroom. He ran into the waiter who was carrying food to another table and the waiter dropped the food on me.

No Exit Strategy

My date was disastrous for the reason that the girl and I had hyped it up for the longest time. We were in a long distance relationship and had not been on an actual date. I got stuck in a 3 hr traffic jam on my way to pick her up. She spent the entire day being sarcastic and annoying, which really put me off. When we talked to each other, I realized how little I actually liked her. This was a terrible date because I spent 3 hours in traffic just to realize this girl bugged the heck out of me, and I had no bail out plan.

My girlfriend and I split up during the spring. We had dated for three years during college. It was a serious relationship that I thought would last forever. I wanted it to. After the split, communication between us was minimal. I would send texts and emails occasionally professing my feelings, etc. Fast forward to this past summer and things seemed liked they were looking up. We were communicating more frequently and talking about things that we could improve if we were to get back together. One weekend while she was at home with her parents (which was four hours away from my location), we planned to go camping and spend some quality time together. We were to talk about another potential future together. That weekend came and I drove the four hours to see her. I was excited at the idea of talking things out and getting back with her. The first day and night we set up camp and did things together; everything seemed great. It was like old times. The next day we were planning an activity. I took a shower and once I finished she said that I should go home. It caught me off guard as I thought things were looking up. I drove four hours home flabbergasted. She wouldn’t return my calls and I discovered she blocked me from Facebook. All I wanted was a clear explanation. I soon found out that my best friend knew that she was also seeing someone else on the side that I did not know about.

I dated this boy Joe for a few months and all of his previous girlfriends were really uncomfortable with this friend Katie he had. I was more laid back then alot of them and didn’t really seem to think of her as much of an issue. After being the first girl that let him talk to her in a few months he ended up dumping me for her and now they have been dating for half a year.

There was a girl I used to like in college. We were classmates and hung out a few times, even kind of going on a date before. She even invited me over to her place once and cooked dinner for me. So, obviously all signs were pointing towards the fact that she liked me so I got ready to ask her to be my girlfriend. One night when I was sending her back home, I stopped outside her apartment to let her off. I also decided to gather some courage and tell her I liked her and be my girlfriend. She gave me a weird look and just ran out the car without saying a word. I was absolutely shocked and I never heard from her again.

Wait, that sounds like…

I spent a year dating a man who I loved dearly. One semester in college I met a girl and became friends with her. One day we were describing our significant others. She was explaining her boyfriend’s field of work, I shockingly told her my boyfriend did the same field of work. After half an hour of talking we realized it was the same person!
