Re: True Break Up Stories
How about breaking off an engagement with a girl you'd never even dated?
Right about the time I was finishing up college, a girl I knew from a part-time job invited me to her birthday party. Nothing unusual about the party itself, although she was being very flirty. Then, toward the end of the night, she informed me she was ready to get married, like now, and I was the one she'd chosen. And she didn't mean "get married" as a euphemism for sex, she meant courthouse, vows, the whole thing.
Now, I'm not all that and she wasn't bad-looking, nor did she need a green card; despite lacking the usual symptoms, I drew the only reasonable conclusion, which was that she was higher than a kite.
But as fate would have it, I'd left a jacket I liked at her apartment, and went back the next day to get it. I figured the whole thing had been a big joke, and what the heck, I can take one. But no, she informed me that she had been perfectly serious. None of this "taking it slow" stuff. I, of course, declined the offer.
And then, two weeks later, I saw her in the mall. With her husband.
