Is it though? Is it reeeeally?
I always thought it was hilarious that you could choose ‘it’s complicated’ as a relationship status on Facebook. Even better, you got to state who it was complicated with! Just brilliant. If it wasn’t before dearie, it is now!
So when I ran into Pixie coming out of a meeting in the world of work this week, and told her of the chemistry-less goodnight kiss with the Almost Actor, I couldn’t help but roll my eyes when she said ‘oh, I have things to tell you about him though. It’s complicated!’
Uh huh. Seems pretty simple to me – crap, awkward first kiss equals crap, awkward everything else. About 3 hours later though, my curiosity was peaked, and I needed to know what she meant. So I emailed and marked it urgent, and demanded the gossip.
(5 minutes later)
Oh.. Okay. Yeah. Well that’s… I mean it’s rather… That’s sort of… What’s the word?
So, the Almost Actor broke up with his girlfriend a couple of days before the fated rollerdisco. It wasn’t a bad breakup, they were still friends, but on account of this whole ‘still friends’ thing, she was present AT the rollerdisco. In fact, there are several photos of us falling over each other in flashing rollerskates. And we’re now facebook friends.
Explains the slightly hesitant slipping out quietly. The ‘I’m not sure how to start this’ intake of breath before the crappest snog in the world. The immediate texting to boost his ego and reassure himself that he’s a nice guy really and not just acting on rebounding impulses.
So sue me – I texted him back. Let’s see how complicated things can get.
Or I can at least teach him better snogging technique. Because seriously – boy’s in trouble.
