Whoa. This news makes me feel funny.

This is a short one. It has to's late, I've been out playing pub trivia all night and to be honest, I'm freaking out a little bit. 

Remember that story about my vacation movie moment? The one where Vacay Boy sang me my favorite song in the talent show? Yeah, that one.

Some of you asked what happened to him. I didn't 'fess up to it because it's very anti-climactic. We had our little fling until I left for Ireland at the end of August. We kept in touch until New Year's Eve, when I was between my Irish boy and J. We made plans to get together, but somehow they fell through, I was a little ticked off and that was that. We talked once in awhile after that...but it wasn't the same. I started dating J, he started dating a new girl. End of story. 

And now, literally 3 minutes ago, I logged on to Facebook and saw that he is engaged. ENGAGED. Oh.My.Gosh. My jaw literally just dropped to the floor.

Now I feel all weird. Is it because at one point in time I was so smitten with him? Is it because he's been dating his girlfriend (now fiancee) for a shorter time than I've been dating J? Is it because some part of me is still hanging on to that amazing vacation moment? I guess he's my first "ex" (but I wouldn't recall him that...more like ex-crush) that is engaged? Maybe...

And while I'm really happy for him, I just feel funny. I don't know what it is, but I felt the need to blog about it. It can be so therapeutic sometimes. Yikes.

Of course you feel weird! It's a funny feeling. We've all been there. It's odd.

I'd forgotten about this story but really glad you brought it back up. I guess I was wondering a little. Wow though! I don't think there's anything wrong with how you're feeling. I'm pretty sure I'd feel something similar if I found out one of my more recent ex's got engaged.

I love pub trivia!

It is so weird when ex's get engaged. Luckily it was only a guy I dated for 2 months, who I wasn't that into.

That must have been weird to run into people from your college in caps and gowns!

Of course you feel funny. I would feel the same way. It's normal and it was your gut reaction. Whenever I hear an ex gets engaged I'm always shocked and say, "really?"
