Confessions of a Fresher! Dumped on His First Date!

Ever been left at the altar? Well, teary Andrew (not real name) a first year at UDSM had this to narrate to the Lane. At a first date dinner with Laura, she showed me lots of photos of her most recent ex. She said she was over him and then in the next breath she asked me if I thought she was dating again too soon.

I did my best to advise her while all the while knowing that this wasn’t going to move beyond a first date. I told her it sounded like she wasn’t really over him and that she should maybe take her time with it before going out with people.

She then pulled out her phone and actually called the guy up. They had a brief, awkward chat. I wondered if she had been in touch with him at all since the breakup.

Asked if she was doing anything, she looked me right in the eye when she told him that she wasn’t up to anything important.

Then she asked him when she could see him again.

Apparently he said, “Right now,” because she put some money on the table, gave me a parting glance, and left while still on the phone and without a goodbye. She didn’t even text me to apologize for her rudeness. I have no idea if she got back together with him. At least everything worked out for one of us.
