My mean love life Part VI

The “hottest guy in the world” still came around a lot. We would go out and do crazy thing like make statues on Main in mesa until the cops busted us, or hit the midnight movies, or his favorite thing to do with me is to watch me flirt with guys at the mall..weirdie! He still like to hang out with Ted, so we would hang out with Ted and his new girl friend every once in a while. At this point in my life I wasn’t in a relationship with anyone and still doing the dumb things that 19 year olds do, like flashing a bus full of boys for a kiss from “the hottest guy ever”, or making mannequins in the mall and freaking people out. My love life was at a stand still, but I didn’t care, I was having fun….until one night at 11pm when I got a phone call from Ted. WE still kept in touch and talked a bit. We talked about work and friends and family and then he told me, “there’s something I need to tell you, I’m engaged”. I was instantly in shock! I pretended to be happy for the rest of the phone call, asking details and congratulating. I hung up and cried for 3 days. THREE DAYS! I thought I was completely over him. I called in sick to work and thought about how happy his life would be with his fiancé. Then I realized why I broke up with him, and how I could never be happy with him for that reason, and I was better, and moving on to his next friend, my next victim…Mitch! Or as I refer to him in my journal, “an arrogant, self involved, annoying SOB” (hense the lack of pictures) Yes, Mitch and I would fight for a whole week, and make up for a whole week for about 2 months. The straw that broke the camels back was one weekend when he took me to Thatcher to meet his family and I ended up kissing a couple of his friends (one being the “best looking guy in the world”). We didn’t speak the whole way home, and we didn’t speak ever again. So I decided to keep playing with the best looking guy in the world for a while while my love life was in a short hiatus. We would meet up every few weekends, play around, wrestle…we had wrestling names for each other. He referred to me as Venom. Our relationship was completely summed up by Dave Matthews band Stay…which says, “tomorrow we’ll go back to being friends’. That was us for years. Then I moved onto another friend, Travis. Travis and I never really had a relationship, just a few weeks of fun and a lot of discussion. This guy liked to talk about his ex a lot. Which bugged a bit, but I knew nothing would come of us anyways, so we had our fun, and I moved on. For a few months I dated whoever was around. Random guys, old friends from EA, guys from my guitar class, and the nerds from the singles ward, and yes, still occasional hook ups with the best looking guy in the world.

You crack me up Kristal! It has been so fun to read these posts. It's fun to read and see who I knew that you dated.
My family was in Ted's ward and his dad was our bishop for a few years. Ted was a very sweet guy and I was good friends with his sister Liz. I had no idea that you dated Ted. Your husband looked familiar to me too, I guess I just thought I saw him from EA or something like that, but maybe it was with Ted that I saw him. How funny

Who did Ted end up marrying anyways?
