More Breakup Stories: A Junior High Breakup


In junior high I asked this guy out (to “go with me” meaning, to go steady). I didn’t even really know him that well, just thought he was kind of cute. Plus, he knew a mutual friend of mine and we all hung out. 

He agreed to go out with me, but he avoided me for two weeks and then I finally saw him walking with another girl, who was a grade older than me-and he was already younger than me. He never even called me during that entire time. 

I didn’t really have to break up with him, but…well…I would have had a great reason to if he had thought we were still together.  I got off easy that time, but he was kind of a jerk for avoiding me. Good thing I wasn't in love with him or that I didn't know him that well. 

If I saw him today though, we'd probably laugh about it. However, I haven't seen him in over 25 years. I wonder if he would even remember.
