Reading another thread brought a question to my mind… whats the most horrible way you’ve ever been dumped? (Or dumped someone…)
I have a tie for first. My Sophomore year of High School, the girl I was dating broke up with me mid make-out session because “She loved me too much”.
Then, my senior year, I was really in love with this girl, but she moved to Seattle, about 3 hours away. We still saw each other every other week or so, as I’d steal my parents car and take off for the weekend. I was young and stupid and was on the verge of proposing to her, when she decided to come down for the weekend unannounced. We had a romantic evening, spent the night together, and in the morning she woke up crying. When I asked he what was wrong, she showed me the ring that her “friend” in Seattle had just given her. Seems the friend was now a fiance, and she wasn’t going to be visiting any more.
I suppose that was what I deserved for dating a girl that had already cheated on my best friend at least 14 times, but… that one still hurts, even 7 years later.
The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
