- Wedding: May 2010
i have broken up 2 couples in the past without even realizing it…..
i work with alot of good people and one of them is the boss’s son… a really nice & great guy. anyways he has his Girlfriend has been dating for about 7yrs (way too long in my book) and he has been a best man about 6 times in a year and had another wedding coming up on the weekend.
anyways…. he was telling me this….. and i said poor Kate (his GFs name), all these weddings, she must be thinking when is my turn while watching you dancing with all those bridesmaids
and then i looked at him and said “Steve, its time to make a decision, its time to fish or cut bait – marry the girl or cut her loose”
then we changed subjects, talked about other things, sorted out a few work issues he came into the office to talk about and thats it….
the very next day he walks into my office, leans over me a bit and says “kate and i broke up last night”
i said you didnt listen to me did you, no one listens to me!!!!!
but yep – they broke up
was at a wedding and at the table were 5 couples, 4 of us engaged and one couple dating for over 3 years.
i said to the boyfriend “so youre at a wedding, all these engaged couples – do you think you’ll get married?”
he says “i dont know how i feel about her yet”
hmmmm – my response was how could you not know how you feel about her after 3 years?? really, if you dont know by now cut her loose because youre wasting her time.
so fast foward a hour or so and i come back from socialising and dessert is being served and i look at an empty spot and say to the guy “so where is your girlfriend”
my then Fiance starts kicking me under the table and i look at him and say “what?”
he then whispers to me that the girlfriend heard me and her boyfriend talking and while i was away from the table they had a argument over the “i dont know how i feel about her” and they broke up and she walked out
so… 2 couples down…. maybe i should go into couple counselling???
anyone else suffers foot in mouth like i do???
