Remember how I told you my ex from the 6th grade, EP hit me up on facebook chat and we went to get coffee?
Well, we did. It was nice. It's so crazy how much he hasn't changed. He looks the same, same voice, same shyness, same clothes, everything.
He's roughly 5'11, light brown hair, light brown eyes, soft spoken, introverted, casual dresser, avid hockey player. (ding, ding, ding, he is why hockey is my favorite sport as an adult)
Granted he's a big time film producer now, so that has changed. He's headed to Alaska to film Parts Unknown with Anthony Bourdain -- that's BIG TIME! He is also on a project with Mark Ruffalo who is 100% my celebrity crush, they have a selfie together. BE STILL MY HEART, I LOVE YOU MARK!
Anyways, we talked for about two hours and it was really nice. I was glad he reached out to reconnect and I promised we would see each other once a year moving forward. I'd make it a priority. It's rare to have someone who knew you super well in your atrociously awkward and ugly years...I want to hold on that and those memories.
Since our coffee date, he texts me daily anddddd he really wants to come back to DC to see me.
and uhhhhh....we did have sex back in college. Twice apparently. I don't remember either which definitely hurt his feelings....He kept bringing up how he couldn't believe it wasn't good enough for me to remember....AHHHH college was a longgggg time ago, I'm sorrrrrry. I barely remember what I had for lunch most days...I know lunch is different than sex but still....2009 seems 25 years ago in my mind.
I think the motivation to "remind me" is there...sadly, I don't think he is visiting anytime soon due to being a badass with work but we will see!
Lastly, we made a pact that if we aren't married at age 32, we are just going to marry each other and see how it goes.
How insane would it be to marry your FIRST boyfriend? That would definitely be blog material.
My parents would be so confused...."Huh? EP? From Ohio? Hockey kid we went to all those games for? No way....WTF??? Are you guys even dating?"
Cheers to having my back up plan?
Every girl needs one.
