It's never fun to run into someone that's dumped you. But how bad would it suck to run into them on a date? This is what happened to the loyal reader who generously allowed me to use one of his BLOW OFF stories to help cure my writer's block. For the purposes of this post, we'll call our reader...Jeremy.
Here's how it all went down. Jeremy was dating a girl named Sally for two years. Sally thought they were on the marriage route, but it turned out Jeremy couldn't see them spending the rest of their lives together. They had a cordial break up and tried to move on. Flash-forward to a few months later. Jeremy is out on a blind date with a girl. They 're at the bar having drinks and things are going well until...the girl sees an old friend of hers walk into the room.
"Sally!" the girl screams. Jeremy looks up and realizes it's his ex-girlfriend. Which means he's accidentally out on a date with his ex-girlfriend's friend. Sally comes over and things are understandably awkward as they get "introduced" to each other and are forced to admit they already know one another. After the date ends, Jeremy gets a call from Sally who asks him to come over. Jeremy arrives to find her crying and telling him they either need to get back together or have to stop talking all together. He chooses the latter.
Now, before you feel too bad for Sally...she rebounded quite nicely and married a handsome man (who looks just like Jeremy, for reals. I know this b/c I saw it on her Facebook page.) And "Jeremy"--- well, he's still searching for that special someone.
