Ex marks the NOT

Zayne and I met on some dating site. It’s all the same shit at this point, let’s be honest.

I am writing this post because I was quite flabbergasted to discover that a seemingly intelligent person such as this would be so ignorant and I feel that it is my duty as a human being to put an end to this madness within our society.

Everyone needs to stop harping on their past relationships when on aquainting themselves with  a current potential partner. You would think it was common sense, but common sense is unfortunately not so common.  Especially for Zayne.

Zayne and I were conversing rather enjoyably when he started describing his living situation and how he was now in a 2 bedroom apartment since he split with his ex of multiple years.

I smiled and nodded as I made my best effort to steer clear of the forbidden topic of the ex-girlfriend, but to no avail. The conversation of why they separated, the issues they had and the play-by-play of the day she left flowed like the Pinot Noir I was eagerly consuming.

“My girlfriend was drop dead gorgeous, but everyone around me always said I was way too good for her.”

Oh. Thanks for letting me know, Zayne. I can see why it was completely necessary to tell me of your lingering attraction to someone in a past relationship while simultaneously informing me of what a superior human being you are.

Can’t wait to do this again.
