Well, not that I actually saw anything on FB, but someone who didn’t want me to be blindsided sent it to me. There’s no way I could have seen it as I have just about everyone connected to him blocked. Including him. Once it’s made ‘Facebook Official’, it’s real, right?
TD and the Lunch Lady are engaged. I honestly am not sure how I feel about this. Aside from running into him at his daughter’s event a couple months ago for the most awkward 15 minutes of my life and his sending me some random text out of the blue about 6 months ago offering to do a vacation home swap (no clue if I even wrote about that but it was the weirdest thing ever) I haven’t spoken to him in probably 2 years.
As I’m still close to his kids, and his son’s girlfriend totally ‘get’s it’ and sees through all the misinformation that TD spreads, I seem to know a lot of what still happens in that family. Yey me. I guess I’m just trying to process this. He used to tell me that the Lunch Lady was like a sad puppy dog that wouldn’t go away. That he didn’t particularly care for her kids. That he felt sorry for her. That he didn’t find her particularly attractive. Then again, according to the message I got from one of his exes, he used to say that about me too. I guess the difference is in knowing where you stand with someone and I never did.
He and the Lunch Lady dated for 2 years. And then broke up for a year. They have been back together only for a few months. I guess she passed all the tests. She never had to deal with the things that I did and always knew where she stood with him. She is pure drama and he likes feeling like the hero.
I can’t help but wonder, and this is where everyone throws up their hands and screams at their phones/monitors, if I would have stuck it out, if it would have been me that he chose? I wonder if she knows what he used to say about her? I wonder if I hadn’t known what he used to say about me, if it would have been better?
Nah, being with him was destroying me. Everything was a test. Everything was a struggle. Everything was a lie. I always felt like I was the ‘backup plan’. I probably was. As was she. He just ran out of options. The Lunch Lady and I are polar opposites. So this ends (for real) the TD saga. I can’t honestly say if I still had ideas of him coming back to me after all this time or not. I don’t think I did, but hearing this news did make my stomach sink a bit, so who knows. Damn, emotions are strange.
I do wish them well. No really. Everyone deserves to be happy. He just beat me to the punch……
Oh, and just to prove that FB is, in fact, the root of all evil, the ‘memory’ and associated photo that came up today was 5 years ago and of TD and I. One of the best photos ever, might I add. 😉
