Alright, I know I have talked about relationships before and being single, but this blog is not about me. It is about my newly single roommate, Sarah. This blog contains an overview of Sarah’s relationship to her now ex, John and the advice her older sister, Nita, gave to help her little sis get over a rough breakup.
I don’t even know where to begin when talking about Sarah and John’s relationship from my point of view because frankly, I thought the relationship was pretty much doomed from the start. In the beginning of the year, Sarah was in a long distance relationship with her bf back home, Kevin. They had been dating for about 2 years now and things were not going too well. Kevin was a liar and a cheater, but mostly a liar….a horrible one. Let’s just say the relationship ended when Kevin decided that drugs were more important than his 2 year relationship with Sarah.
The day after Kevin and Sarah broke up, Sarah and I decided that we needed to get drunk and have a good night so she could forget about her asshole of an ex. Well, one thing led to another and we ended up at Mi Ranchitos (that sketchy Mexican bar on Atwood). While we were there, I spotted my friend Jeff. Jeff was having a guys night with his two buddies Evan and John. As the night rolled into the wee hours of the morning, I had realized that Sarah had made her rounds. She not only hooked up with Jeff, but also with Evan and finally with John. Wanting to go home with Jeff, Sarah ended up spending the night with his roomie John.
As you can probably guess by my intro, John and Sarah began to see each other more often, after their one night stand, and feelings began to grow. Sarah is an extreme romantic, while John is the more reserved romantic. Oh, by the way, let me just add that both Sarah and John were both coming out of long distance, long term relationships. Sarah’s ex, Kevin, was an asshole (as i mentioned before) and John’s ex, Emma, was the psycho, untrustworthy bitch. Anyways, John and Sarah decided to continually “date” throughout the rest of the year (even though I thought they both should have not rushed into another relationship. Did they listen? Oh God, of course not.)
What really bothered me was how invested Sarah was in the relationship, and how little John seemed to notice. When John had hard tests to study for or stressful days, Sarah would be the sweet “gf” and bring him hot cups of coffee to his room and gave relaxing massages to ease his stress. Also, Sarah would plan cute picnics at Schenley Park (made sandwiches for him and everything!) and John wouldn’t answer his phone when the time came for them to be enjoying their picnic on the lawn. Now, you know what even bothered me more? Sarah and I would have “girls night out” one day of the weekend, yet John would always just “stop by” when we were pre-gaming and would ask to come out with us in a discreet way. Obviously, Sarah wanted him to come out with us, leaving me annoyed that John always weaseled his way into “girls night”.
John and Sarah had many ups and downs in their relationship (like most college couples do), but last week, John broke up with Sarah out of the blue saying he just couldn’t “trust” her…making Sarah seem like she was an untrustworthy person, which she definitely isn’t. I mean, she’s sure as hell ain’t Emma!
As horrible as this sounds, I was kinda happy when they broke up because 1.) I don’t like John as a boyfriend for Sarah and 2.) I know Sarah can do SO much better. Nita (Sarah’s older sister) agreed with me and gave her little sister the best advice I’ve ever heard when getting over a break up. She said,” Sarah, what you need to do now is go buy some sexy lingerie, a new pair of heels, and use condoms discreetly….be a happy smut!” (A smut is a classy form of a slut, haha). In conclusion, the best way to get over a guy is well, to have fun and realize that there is always someone else out there just waiting to sweep you off your feet!
