Here is a glimpse into my personal life. I haven't really touched that area yet...
Last night was one of the most bizarre nights. I had been to a cocktail party, and later decided to head downtown with one of my best friends from UT. We showed up at the first bar and met up with two of our guy friends that we were planning on spending the rest of the evening with. Please keep in mind that it was 30 degrees outside (cold by the South's standards) and I was dresses to the nines with one of my best new dresses (without a jacket). I got many compliments on my outfit (this really has nothing to do with the story... sorry)!
Background to the situation... I have some AMAZING guy friends! They are honestly some of my best friends that I can count on for anything. One guy friend in particular started to stand out from the rest. I met him Freshman year, but we really started hanging out Sophomore year when we lived next door to each other. We ended up working together Junior year. Guy Friend and I were pretty much inseperable since we moved next door. Needless to say, things start to get expected of a guy/girl relationship after a certain point. Both of our families, a lot of our friends, and even our boss were convinced that we would start dating... but we always denied the allegations. So after all the pressure of our relationship began to make things a little awkward, he stopped talking to me completely! I guess one day he woke up and decided that he was never going to talk to me again! I tried to call, left him 1 or 2 voicemails, and even texted him... no response. My mother even called him to make sure that everything was okay and to invite him to our tailgate... still no response. After 2 months, I finally saw him out one night, and I cannot say that I was the nicest person to him. I think the term "giving him the cold shoulder" would have been an understatement.
Okay, so hopefully you got the gist of the situation and I'm back to the story... We decided to leave the first bar after the crowd started to thin and head to the infamous late night hangout. Of course, the first person I see after walking in the door is Guy Friend (from now on we will be referred to him as GF). He takes one look at me and heads in the other direction! I now knew that my wonderful night had been ruined.
I continue to walk through the crowded bar to be greeted next by GF's sister. The first thing she said to me (I am not lying... this was before she said hello) is that I was going to be her sister-in-law! Wasn't expecting that comment. My immediate response was "did you know that I have literally talked to your brother once in the last 2 month?!" She had no idea!! Still, she continued to tell the whole bar, and all of our friends her plan for GF and I to get married. I asked her if GF was even aware of her idea and this was her reply: "HE SAID HE IS AFRAID THAT HE CAN'T AFFORD YOU." So I am definately not what I would consider high maitenence; but come on now, Lilly and beauty doesn't come cheap! So is he not talking to me because he wants to be with me but thinks that I'm too high maintenece?!
I guess he did consider dating me, but I have never even considered that being an option, no matter how close of friends we were. Over the course of time, he had dropped some little hints that made me wonder, but it was always after we had been drinking and none of them were very serious. Although one night, he made me cross my heart and hope to die that if we were both not married by the time we were 30-35ish then we would marry each other. I laughed, took it as a compliment, and had never really thought about it again (until now).
So, now I am in a connundrum on how to handle the situation... GF still won't talk to me and now his sister is running around telling people that we are getting married. All I have to say is it was one crazy night! And the moral to this story is that you should always be looking your best when you run into ex's/enemies/people that won't speak to you/etc. because at least you feel confident in yourself. I am determined that he will come to his senses one day and at least say hello to me next time!
