saving the date

since i resigned from a previous job almost exactly a year ago, out of office eye candy and i have never really contacted each other. sure i see him on IM relatively often and maybe in the last year we might have IMed very briefly a couple of times... but for the most part it just seems like whatever rapport we had before just fizzled out like so many office friendships do once one person leaves.

today i received an email from him. well a mass email... a "save the date" to his wedding.

i'm no longer interested in him the way i was before despite knowing all along then that he had a girlfriend and was in a relationship so serious that he was planning to marry her. i still think he's a great guy and i'm happy for him. the single world has just lost one awesome guy to marriage.

but i can't help but feel a lil strange. the strange you feel when one of your ex crushes gets married. the strange you feel when after such a long time of not seeing him, you see one of his wedding pics in the email where he and his bride look so happy and in love.

so i guess i'm saving the date. and come 21st june, i just have to make sure that i look so fabulous that even if out of ex-office eye candy doesn't "regret" not choosing me, maybe i will catch the eye of some other awesome guy.

Ouch - a save the date? Yuck!! I hate it when my crushes get married. It's always tough.

hart: is it too much to want both? haha!

carmen: yeah it's tough when one of your crushes get married... even though it's an ex-crush. then again it's probably weirder when a guy you previously went out with gets married...

It might be - depends on whom you want it from!
