Daily Prompt: tainted love

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/02/22/daily-prompt-tainted-love/

Okay so I’m not sure if this counts as a dump or not… This happened to me, I might also post the break-up in one of my books… it gets ugly trust me. Okay.. now for mine. 

I met this guy at a skating rink (yes I’m old-ish) on my 18th birthday, I’m high on birthday cake and large birthday bucks from the cards I got. While I’m out skating someone steals my purse, with my pictures from my birthday party and all my money and ID… I’m very upset and crying. It sucks to get robbed any day but much worse on your birthday, so this cute guy buys me something to eat and drink because my money’s all gone. We talk and skate together and then go to the pool hall, we’re having a good time, and I end up telling him where I work. 

Long story short we start dating… everything isn’t great. He stands me up, he comes by in his crapmobile Pinto…. (YES I said PINTO.. proving that to me your “ride” isn’t everything) he comes by later to make sure I’m home and not out having fun. No no, I’m a good girlfriend I stay home and wait for his worthless self… until I realize what he’s up to. The next time he’s a no show I tell my friends yeah I’m up for hanging out! And he shows up 1/2 an hour later.. I confront him and he promises he won’t do it again. (I never waited on him again so it never happened again) Then one night he wanted me to blow off work to go to a concert with him… I couldn’t and wouldn’t… I told him go on without me. He does after much whining and bellyaching, 

Now in highschool we all have that not so attractive friend who has a hard time getting guys, and I’m no different. I felt bad for her…I myself am probably a 6 or 7… cute not beautiful… I’ll settle for the girl next door and cute any day. This girl comes to school monday glowing happily, she’s found a guy! Woot! I say… I’m happy for her, she’s telling me how they met.. what they did.. how great he was… and about how they slept together. (little fast for me but not judging here just happy she’s found someone)

Oh!! guess what?? He’s meeting her for lunch! Wanna come meet him? 
Sure! I say.. let’s go! I head out with her and hey! My boyfriend is here too… weird…. She lets out a happy squeal and rushes towards him. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Nice… Did I mention he’d given me a ring for our “going steady”? I cross my arms and he’s looking very nervous and then mad.

Hold up! You’re mad at me?? Yep he pushed free of her and headed towards me, well I gave him back his ring and turn to go. I’m not one for dramatics and I don’t have time for a guy like him. He grabbed my arm and nearly every guy on the football team came to my defense. (I had a cousin who told them to keep and eye out for me and to make sure no one hurt me. This ensures 3 things… 1) I’ll never date anyone in that school 2) I’m officially everyone’s little sister and 3) My new Ex-boyfriend isn’t going to be a problem. 

He lets go, but that’s not the end of it. He’s an idiot… a year later he shows up on my doorstep. Says he’s in a 12 step program and has to apologize to people he’s done wrong… wants to know if I’m sleeping around to get back at him.

My reply:  
I haven’t thought about you enough to try and get back at you… have a nice life. 

*Door shut* 

Not sure who was dumped… me because he cheated? Or him when I caught him?
