My Boyfriend Made Up An Entire Vacation So He Wouldn’t Have To Hang Out With Me: Part 2

Note for the readers who didn’t get to read the “Part 1″ blog post: My boyfriend made up an entire vacation so that he didn’t have to hang out with me. No, just kidding. Well, unfortunately I’m not kidding about that happening, that actually a sad fact of my life.

I was joking about the amount of information I was giving you. Check it out if you can, but the post was basically about my dirtbag of a boyfriend didn’t have the guts to dump me to hang out with his little boy friends, so he pretended to go to Florida for a weekend wedding.

He then proceeded stand in the way of my potential future happiness when his best friend, Chris, asked for his permission to ask me out, himself. He then repeatedly lied to me and had his family lie, and tried to tear apart my friendship with Chris by calling him a crazy liar (pot calling the kettle black, I know).

Anyway, back to Part 2 of this disgusting tale…

I texted Joey immediately after Chris told me the other version of the Florida story, telling him that we needed to have a serious talk when he got “home” (and, yes, I put it in quotation marks).

When Joey got “back from Florida,” he bought me a red rose and put on the greatest performance of his life.

“Babe, how can you believe him over me? Can’t you see that he’s trying to tear us apart because he’s jealous of what we have? Someone who lies like that is literally crazy – like mental institution crazy,” he said to me, with puppydog eyes and that aforementioned smile.

I still wasn’t buying it. “Jen, ask my mom if you don’t believe me.”

“Okay,” I said, jumping up, and seeing the fear of God in his eyes. “That’s the best thing you’ve said to me all day.”

“Janine, did you go to a wedding in Florida this past weekend?” I asked his mother, as calmly as I could manage, with Joey standing behind me.

“Yes, of course we did. It was lovely,” she answered, without missing a beat.

“Oh,” I said, feeling absolutely ridiculous and psychotic.

“Okay, thanks,” I said, and sat back down in shame.

“Okay, kids, have fun,” she said cheerily, and walked out of the room.

“Do you want to see the plane ticket an the wedding favor, too? Because I have both of them in my parents’ room and I will go get them for you right now. Whatever it takes for you to believe me, baby.”

“No, of course not,” I said, shamefully. My face was burning red with embarrassment.

Side Note: Two years later, Joey actually admitted to me that he had made up the entire Florida thing and winked at his liar of a mother behind my back so she’d go along with it. Hmm…did he mention that someone who lies like that should be in a mental institution?

Anyway, I bought the jerk’s Broadway monologue (or maybe I didn’t, who knows) and stayed with him for another couple months after the Florida incident before leaving him. I’ve actually told you the story about how I left him.

Now, I don’t feel so bad for leaving a guy for his best friend ;)

One thought on “My Boyfriend Made Up An Entire Vacation So He Wouldn’t Have To Hang Out With Me: Part 2

  1. Hello Jennifer,
    It’s been a while hasn’t it? Well, perhaps not for you because the evidence suggests that you are, unfortunately, still the little 16 year old girl you were back in 2003. A very close friend of mine brought your blog to my attention, to which my initial response was complete indifference. However, that was until I was notified of the “detailed hate speech” that was directed towards myself perpetrated by you. A friend read as I listened in complete confusion that something like this would happen, you know, being that we are both “adults” now. Nevertheless, I gave it respect, huge mistake on my part I must say, and listened with an objective and fair mind. After listening and thinking about the entire situation the fact of the matter is, yes, you were right. I did lie to you. It was very deceitful and I do apologize. I accept all responsibility for everything you have accused me of. Those were the actions of a naïve, immature boy who obviously did not know any better at the time and truthfully not the man I am today. Anybody who conducts themselves in that matter is no gentlemen. Boys grow and learn and become better men through their transgressions. However, this does not give you the right to slander in a public forum unbeknownst to another. You should be aware that some things are out of bounds. What is truly shocking, and also perplexing, is that all of this anger is still very much present inside you almost a decade later. And yet, you are the one who calls me psychotic; glass houses babe. Please don’t forget that you were not a perfect angel as well. The mere fact that I listened to your blog and subsequently responded means that I have officially descended to your level and for that I feel shameful and utterly disgusted. I also, understand that this response would give a person like you more ammunition. But I cannot just let someone like you get away with this without a fair response. I hope one day you do mature Jennifer and cease to be the scared, insecure little girl that has to attack people with their backs to you, very cowardly. At this time I’m going to ask you politely to discontinue “blogging” about myself or any other of my friends who you have “hit on” or had relationships with. If and when you do rise above this and I really hope that you do, I wish you luck in all of your future endeavors and perhaps we can behave accordingly as adults should. I’ve moved on as should you Jennifer.
    Sincerley,
    Joey
