i’m sorry. i can’t. don’t hate me.

If you’re a female, you know that phrase all too well… Which brings me to my story:

I’m out with my girlfriends a few weeks ago sharing bottles of wine, and the topic of dating and relationships comes up. We decide to swap horror stories – juicy details and all. Believe me, I’ve had my fair share of dating disasters and memorable break-ups (being the dumper and the dumpee), but one in particular sticks out.┬áThis more recent fiasco made it’s way to my “Top 3 Dating Disasters”.

I had been dating this guy for a month or so and things seemed to be going well. We had a lot in common and great chemistry. We both (at the time) said we wanted to pursue this and see where it went. Needless to say, I was completely blind sided when things ended… How did he end it? Not in person or even with a phone call, but a TEXT MESSAGE. A man in his 30’s no less. I felt like Carrie from Sex & The City

First comes the shock…

And then anger/confusion…

That’s what your girlfriends are for… to help you back up from a break up.
