i’m dating my best friend’s ex-husband and it was her idea

6 May

One sunny afternoon I was on the phone with my best friend when she randomly started talking about her ex-husband, Kev, needing to find a nice girl. They co-parent an 8-year-old boy who is a lot of fun to be around. She ended up telling me he and I would be perfect together. This would probably make more sense to you if you knew Coley.

Anyway, I told her I did kind of like him from the brief moments I had been around him so she called him and told him like it was middle school all over again.

Kevin and I met up at a local restaurant that night. We talked, we laughed, we ate excellent food. We walked on the beach, debated ancient extraterrestrials, I brought him home. We watched Golden Girls, he vaped, I smoked, we called it a night.

It’s been two weeks and one day since that night. Last night for Cinco de Mayo we went to Coley’s house and hung out with her, Ty, and the kids. We ate Spaghetti. Ty and Kev had margaritas, Coley and I laughed our asses off about random shit. And we colored. The guys played that brass ring game and bullshitted.

It has taken me a bit to get used to the fact that I’m dating her ex. It helped last night, but it’s weird knowing your best friend and now your boyfriend share a major history together aside from the fact a child.

It’s also weird when they tell the story differently.

The whole thing is weird, but I like him. And that’s my story.
