So after you go on a date with someone, and it doesn’t work out – you usually don’t ever have to worry about seeing them again. Unless of course, you work a block away from each other.
I went to get drinks with a co-worker and as we were walking down the street I noticed this guy walking in the opposite direction – and of course, it was the first guy I went out with when I moved to town. He was the one that said “he needed time to figure out himself” while he stilll kept updating his dating profile.
It was the awkward – we both saw each other, clearly recogonized each other, and both chose to ignore each other. Luckily I was with someone, so I didn’t look lonely or anything. I looked like I had a social life, and that I didn’t care at all about seeing him.
Why is that such an awkward thing? Wait, I know – because you have seen me naked, and decided that you didn’t like me enough to continue seeing me. Now running into you, I have to either pretend like I don’t know you, or don’t see you – because neither of us want to actually acknowledge each other. Maybe one day exes will be able to talk to each other…..maybe not.
