I don’t think people over 30 understand the importance of Instant Messenger, especially the way it relates to relationships. Here’s a great example: Reed. My ex boyfriend. Who I’m sick of talking about, especially since it violates the key Rules of Jenny, but this is really important.
When Reed and I broke up – sorry, when Reed cheated on me (with Eva, yes, sucks, over the Eva part but not the cheating boyfriend part) and then broke up with me (in a heartless and cruel way, by telling me he was never my boyfriend to begin with, because he’s a lying twit who can’t take responsibility and ugh!), he blocked me from IM. At first I thought his Sidekick was broken or something, but no. Later my brother was IMming him and I was like, hold up, Reed is on IM? Not a great way to find out. He’s such a jerk!
So this is almost six months ago. Haven’t seen or heard from Reed since. Actually doing really well with that fact. Then yesterday I’m on IM (who am I kidding I am ALWAYS on IM!) and Reed’s name pops up.
Um, excuse me? Reed? WTF.
So now I can’t stop checking his away messages (which say lame things, like Arctic Monkeys lyrics that I introduced him to), and every time he signs off, I’m like, OMG did you just block me again? Or are you just signed off? I even make Eva and Sophia check THEIR IM buddy list to see if Reed is there. It’s pathetic. I want to block him. But what if he wants to talk to me? But why should I let him talk to me? We are SO over. And he is a terrible person!
But I’ll admit, I still want to talk to him. I don’t know why or what I would say but it’s making me crazy.
Advice, please. Eva and Sophia say “block him and get rid of him” and Sebastian says he’s going to Williamsburg to kick his ass at Galapegos but I’d like an objective opinion.
