I had the pleasure of bumping into my ex-boyfriend Dave last night at District. I was there with Dean and a bunch of my friends when we saw him and his girlfriend making their way through the crowd. I forget the girl’s name, but I adore her. It takes a lot for me to like someone, especially someone who is now dating one of my exes. But I liked her the first time I met her.
That first time, we came across each other as they made their way through a Bay to Breakers party. She’s cute, filipino, and outgoing. I think that’s what I liked about her–her chattiness. I’m just not like that, which is why I knew I needed to be with someone who can’t stop talking to balance my shyness. Dave and I would sit there. Stone-cold silence. As much as I loved him, we just didn’t work. After I met his girlfriend, I told Dean, “She’s great. She’s perfect for him.”
All of my exes ended up marrying another Asian. Looks like Dave will be continuing the trend. They shared with us the good news that they had gotten engaged. So happy for them.
