Ha! This was great (and very odd). Quick background:
FI was with this woman for 3 yrs and really thought “she was the one”. (they were young, dammit lol) She cheated on him, he left her (in a heartbeat) and within a month of them splitting, he met and started dating me. 8 yrs later … we’re getting married in 2 months. 🙂
I never met her nor have any ill feelings toward her (have no reason to!) Her background: she married an older guy a year after FI and her split up (for money) and that lasted 1 yr. She is now engaged to someone else, who we met that day.
So, FI and I are doing our registry and having SO MUCH fun doing it. (really, we had a blast! And it was obvious, random people were telling us how cute it was, etc) And we run into her. She recognized me, I didn’t recognize her (turns our she came to eat at the restaurant where we worked when we first met to “see me”)
She flips out when she sees FI … pushes her fiance out of the way to give FI a big hug. I’m a very trusting person, I walked away. I could careless. So, they chatted for a good 2-3 minutes and FI came back to me and we continued our shopping. (he was a little flabbergasted, but got over it quickly). She then proceeds to follow us around the store for the next 45 minutes watching us “have our little fun”. (we didn’t notice, we just kept bumping in to her … and for the size of this store, not very possible or likely).
At the end of the day, we’re still living large and excited to get married. But, that is just ironic man. lol Anyone else had a situation like that?

That’s a weird situation for sure! What a place to meet after all this time – as you are doing your registry! It’s clear he has moved on to better things (like you!), so she definitely looks like the fool in this situation. Glad you had a blast shopping for your registry!

Never had a situation like that. My fiance only dated one girl seriously before me and she lives in another state so it’s not likely that I’ll ever bump into her. Huzzah! 🙂

@dance: Aren’t you fantastic saying that!!!! lol Thank you!!
Was very awkward. Especially bc she used to spy on me at work (yrs ago) and I had no idea! Not to mention, always contacts FI (and he ignored her) and tried to get advice from him (again, he ignores her even after her divorce). He’s just never even tried to maintain a friendship with her.
But, for her to see him and I are STILL together after all these years. That has to hurt. I don’t wish anything bad upon her at all … but it cant feel good to be married/divorced by the age of 22 and see “the one you let get away bc he didn’t make enough money for you” so happy as just got to hurt. 🙁

As bad as it is to say, there is something extremely satisfying about running into your ex and having him/her see how great you are doing now (aka without him/her!). It’s definitely her loss!
Good for you for brushing it off! (Especially since she creeped on you at your old work! That is so weird!)
