Crappy Ex

I experienced the lethal combo of too many drinks, a dark club full of English speaking Europeans in their 20s, and a very hot Irishman whose travels to America only included Las Vegas.

I had a very serious boyfriend for two years. Then we broke up. Then a few months later we sort of got back together. On a trip to Paris a couple months later, I experienced the lethal combo of too many drinks, a dark club full of English speaking Europeans in their 20s, and a very hot Irishman whose travels to America only included Las Vegas. My ex-boyfriend and I, 3,000 miles apart, had yet to declare we were officially back together by then, so I didn’t think of it as cheating when I flirted and made out with Barry at the end of the night. I had to leave early the next day, so it didn’t go anywhere. After I got back to the U.S., my ex and I continued to act more and more like we were a couple, falling back into our patterns as boyfriend and girlfriend, but still would never officially declare our love for each other like we had before the break up. But two years after we were sort of together, we still had to go through an official re-break up for our unofficial relationship.
