There she is

sitting at the bar a few stools down from you. It's a quiet night for your favorite bar. You think that fate is moving to let you meet this hot, sexy blond who has captured your eyes since you sat down and ordered a beer. This girl is nothing short of perfect. From how she sips her drink to how she sits on her stool in such a ladylike fashion.

You are mesmerized by her. She has dominated your thoughts since you entered the bar. Finally her eyes meets yours and you come near to fainting. She looks like a Playboy bunny or maybe a fashion model out for some "quiet time" away from the crowds and publicity.

A dream come true

is all you can think about meeting her. You even tell her after you introduce yourself that she is a living dream. She bats her long eyelashes and this sends chills up your spine. Yes, she is very special. Yes, she might be "the" one for you. You decide to "play it cool," and not get in a hurry. Pretty wise, my friend.

Months pass. Promises are made between you and her. You think while you are alone that you might be falling in love with this angel from beyond. Drunk with love is the best way to describe you. Your parents, siblings and coworkers have never seen you this happy with any girl you ever dated. Life is good.

Watch it!

Then she asks "the" loaded question

"Sweetie, would you mind if, uhhh, my "ex," had dinner with us this Friday night?"


For a few moments you swear that you are dreaming or maybe hearing things for the drinks she has made for you two are stronger than usual.

Newsflash. You are NOT dreaming or hearing things. She is totally-serious. Only minutes ago you were talking at 100 miles per hour for being so happy with "this" girl. Now your tongue is useless. Your mouth and mind are both numb as if you had taken a Novocaine injection.

You might as well be warned in the here and now. And this perfect girl did not mention this piece of priceless information to you that there are . . .

HER "EX" COULDshow-up for the free dinner and then whip your butt. What does he have to lose? His girlfriend is now your girlfriend, so you best get in some self-defense training.

YOU COULD EASILY let your tongue get yourself in a tight spot by exaggerating a bit about your yearly income and cause this "ex" to get angry and slap your jaws.

HER "EX" MIGHT GET IN your face immediately after being introduced to you and tell you off and humiliate you in front of his "ex" girlfriend.

YOU COULD ASK out of sheer diplomacy, a friendly question and he could burst the Oak dining table over your head.

THEN HE MIGHT TAKE A NOTION to show-off his massive biceps and pour an entire bottle of champagne over your head then do a "belly-to-belly suplex," a wrestling move, and knock you out cold.

THE "EX" MIGHT TAKE A WILD HAIR and make fun of you all evening just so his "ex" girlfriend will laugh at you so he will not grow angry.

YOU COULD MAKE A foolish move and sit with your arm around his "ex" on the living room couch after dinner. NOTE: she never told you that this was his favorite way to sit with her.

AND TO REALLY HACK YOU OFF her "ex" might ask his 'ex" to dance with him. Not that he is any dancer. He just did this to make you look weak.

HER "EX" MIGHT JUST sit and stare at you most of the night to make you nervous.

and this one that is called the "Big Guns"

HER "EX" WILL PROBABLY challenge you to an arm wrestling match knowing that you are not the physical type and beat you so easily that he gets bored.

Do you think that these tips will help you?

No? Okay. Then get in good physical shape and if things gets serious . . .run for your life. There are other gorgeous blondes in bars.


Ordinarily, the "ex," and the current boyfriend tolerate each other, but in some cases, both yell and scream when the girlfriend is not around

I do not know if you are talking from experience or not. However I have never been put in any of the situations envisaged, and at 62 I have plenty of Ex's. The only time I ever got in a confrontation was when I accidentally picked up a girl while her boyfriend was at the same club Ooops! I was 17 at the time.

It led to a physical confrontation, which I won easily (so I thought). Then he and a group of his friends mugged me on the way home. I was rescued by a passing stranger who beat them all off (I was lucky).

Dressage Husband,

Wow! This is a fantastic comment. Thank you so much. The situations listed in this hub ARE possible for I was privy to one years ago. An "Ex" met the boyfriend of his former girlfriend. It started off calm, and ended with one bloody fist fight which the "ex" won.

I am impressed at your comment and the adventure you shared. If I might give you some free advice, have you ever considered writing yourself a book about your adventures in "love land?" I tell you. I would buy a copy.

You tell this story with such a calculated humor it is hilarious.

I am serious.

And thank YOU for your lively comment. Visit with me anytime.

Ken this was very funny! I will say this, if my guy ever came and asked me if his x could join us for dinner, he would at that point be my x and those two could get back together.

Dana,

I am with you on this one. Now if they were to meet and I was there, fine. No use having friction and negativity, but to allow someone who should be forgotten as a love interest to intrude into a marital area . . .NO WAY.

Thanks, Dana for your friendship and comment.
