Close Encounters Of The Third Kind

Meeting an ex-girlfriend is not always a pleasant experience, especially if there was a nasty break up involved.

It is both awkward and unsettling.

But that wasn’t the case here.

In one social event, Raft3r ran into his ex and her current beau.

Since they were seated a few rows away from me, I had ample time to think how to approach the situation.

Raft3r wanted to take the high road and be the perfect gentleman. I decided that I will be the one to make the first move.

I was caught off guard when she approached me first.

She mentioned my name and smiled. That was a good sign.

My ex then introduced her boyfriend. It was my turn to be polite.

People around us were actually expecting a confrontation. They were utterly disappointed.

So this is how it feels like to be an adult. Raft3r – finally - grows up.
