I thought I had love and life figured out. Then my boyfriend of seven years dumped me right before our college graduation and my seemingly perfect parents announced they were getting divorced after 30 years of marriage.
Everything I thought I knew about love was erased in a matter of days and my first amazing summer as an official adult was officially... different.
Thanks to my friends, I've mostly recovered and feel ready to dip my toe in the dating pool. I'm thrust into a new world of dating filled with apps, emoticons, and acronyms. Swipe this, tag thatâ¦
WTF does DTF even mean??
Iâm off to a rocky start, starting with a guy weâve nicknamed Mr. Chompy. It doesnât get much better from thereâ¦
âIâm sure it wasnât that bad,â Anette said, barely stifling a laugh.
I shot her a long-suffering look and grabbed a can of Diet Coke out of the fridge. âIt was bad. Horrific, train wreck, body-parts-flung-from-the-wreckage kind of bad.â
I nudged Zachâs legs off the coffee table as I pushed by to take my seat on the sofa. I couldnât help a sadistic smile when he moaned. âHey, now. Just because you had a foul date doesnât mean you have toâ¦â
Both Anette and Zach exchanged glances, the pair of them now fully focused on the horror show that had become my date for the evening.
âIâm sorry... he what?â Anette giggled.
âAllow me to demonstrate. Youâre me.â I turned towards Zach on the sofa, my knee wedged tightly against his body. âWe were at his house, sitting this close, and started making out. Everything seemed fine. Then he does this move with his hand,â I explained as I slid my hand along the side of his jaw and into the shaggy hair at the back of his head. I looked to Anette and shrugged. âHot, right?â
âOh yeah, Iâm all tingly over here,â she conceded, crossing her arms.
âAnd we kiss,â I added, leaning in for the full effect. Zach stiffened, probably afraid I would actually kiss him. âHe pulls back, makes this bizarre face and chomps.â I open my mouth as wide as my date had and clack my teeth together with a violent CHOMP.
I pause for a second and then throw my hands in the air as if declaring victory in the I Swear Iâm Not Making This Up competition. Shock washed over their faces as I allowed the scene to sink in.
âI still donât understand,â Zach frowned.
âThat face, right there! Thatâs the face I think I was makingâ¦ the first time.â
Anette threw her ass down on the coffee table and stared at me incredulously. âHold on. The first time? This nutjob did this more than once?â
âYou let this nutjob do this more than once?â Zach added.
I smoothed my hair out with both hands and sighed. âI didnât want to be mean. Maybe he has a tic, or Tourette's. At the very least, I hoped heâd had something stuck in his teeth he was trying to get out.â
âBecause flossing with your face makes absolutely perfect sense. Yep.â
I rolled my eyes at her and continued retelling my night from hell. âBut he kept doing it. And thatâs when I realized the funny face he was making was supposed to be sexy. It was like heâd learned seduction techniques from a Looney Toons cartoon.â
Anette patted me comfortingly on the knee and returned to getting ready for work. âWell, at least you have the story to remember him by. You might have nightmares about denture-wearing zombies chasing you for the next few weeks, but whatever.â
âThat wasnât the worst part,â I intoned, unsure if I even wanted to reveal this section of my night. Maybe I should take it to the graveâ¦
