because I like to make things awkward…

Today I got an email from a girl who I dated for about a month. The relationship was cool and all, but one day we were hanging out and it had become obvious that it just wasn’t working. So we broke up. This breakup was weird though… weird because it was so simple. So clean. So unemotional. The conversation went something like this:

“So… do you think this is working?”
“Not really, do you?”
“Nope, not really. I mean, you’re great and all but…”
“Yeah, you too I mean it’s just that…”
“Should we just break up?”
“Yeah, probably.”
“Ok, Cool.”
“Cool.”
“Have a great day!”
“You too. Say hi to your dad for me.


It was seriously that easy. Don’t you wish it was always that easy? Painless. Pure. Professional even!

But have you ever broken up, and known that it wasn’t meant to be, but you saw them out flirting with someone… and it got under your skin a little? Like for you online daters, maybe you saw their profile back in action on Eharmony… or maybe their Facebook status went back to “looking for love” or whatever.

Today it happened to me:

    It’s hard to get a date
    Let alone a real girlfriend
    But I grow another foot and I lose a bunch of weight
    Every time I login”

    “I’m so much cooler online
    Yeah, I’m cooler online
    I’m so much cooler online
    Yeah, I’m cooler online”

    Exs always have a way of “enhancing” themselves

  2. two questions: would the fact that I speak spanish cause them to overlook the fact that my youth group is made up of seven ladies (non-spanish speaking)? In conclusion, would they mind if I made inappropriate jokes while playing my jaguar with a mooger fooger?
