The next day Ex was on a plane on his way back to his home town and I was devastated. Guy breaks girl’s heart, girl eats ice cream and drinks wine in PJs for months. Looking back now, it wasn't completely out of nowhere.
I was out for drinks with some of the incredible friends I mentioned earlier and I was feeling pretty good after a big win at a game of trivia.
That's when I got a call from my roommate saying she had to tell me something and that maybe I should sit down.
If you had told me a few months ago, though, that I'd be happy again someday, I would've yelled at you to "shut up" from underneath my covers with a mouthful of fro-yo.
And just like that, after a couple of texts and a sobbing phone call in the bathroom, the guy I was building a life with (let's call him Ex) was done.
They have a hedgehog and even I have to admit it's really fucking cute.
Ok, so you've found "The One." Maybe you've been dating for as little as a few weeks or as long as a few years. What circumstances do you consider before taking the steps to tie the knot? Do financial situations or job security affect your decision?
Not of their relationship, her engagement ring or their love.
I'm jealous of the tiny porcupine-gerbil thing they call their fur baby.
How long is too long to wait for a serious commitment, if you know you're ready for a ring?
