I tend to stay friends or at least connected via social media with guys I have dated.
It started out slow. First, #ICU (discussed in a previous blog post) announced he eloped and got married.
Then another one entered a long term relationship. Then another.
Another marriage. Another relationship. Another relationship. Another marriage. You get the point.
It all culminated recently. I went on one date with a teacher. It didn't really progress from there. Three weeks later, photos from his wedding popped up on my Instagram feed. Three weeks! Despite stating he was single and had not been in a relationship for a year, bam!
Married out of nowhere.
I realized Sierra was right (Oh yeah, enjoy my acknowledgement this one time, Sierra!)
Good Luck, Chuck is a movie about a guy who dates women. After they go on a date, the women end up marrying the next guy they meet. This is totally me!!! I'm Good Luck, Toxi!!!
Although it's weird to think of myself as a stepping stone for others, I completely get it. There are people we are meant to be with and obviously I was not it for these guys nor were they it for me. The reality is that anyone actively dating is seeking some type of connection (whether it's FWB, dating, long term or marriage) so it's only natural that relationships will form.
I just wish they would invite me to the wedding so I can get some cake out of this deal!!!
Life Lesson #13- For the sake of future wedding cake, remain friends with your exes!
