Young love: a horror story

I’ve blogged a couple of times about the love lives of some of my flatmates (all guys, slightly younger than me and T). No kidding, their dramas make me feel like a total grandma. And of course, grateful to be well past all that BS.

The youngest – let’s call him X – is a total pretty boy, and he’s had a tempestuous on/off relationship with GF1 for over a year. During one of their recent off periods, he got with GF2, and when he and GF1 reconciled, he kept seeing GF2 in secret. I’m talking coming around to the house, hanging out in the lounge, putting her hands all over him, but NEVER being allowed in his room because that’s where he kept photos of him and GF1.(And for some incomprehensible reason, she likes to bring over one of her equally skanky friends as well – is this a new thing, tagging along to your friend’s boyfriend’s house to watch them get it on? Where you don’t even know anyone else who lives there?)

At first we stood back and looked on, shaking our heads at his nerve and wondering when the house of cards was gonna come tumbling down.I mean, surely one day he was bound to have one of the girls turn up and catch him in the act. Especially when he went to a party where BOTH of them were in attendance and both knew the host.

And then I found out that BOTH girls knew about each other. And neither had pounded the other to death. In fact, they were both fine with it – they seemed happy to share.

I have nothing more to say. Just had to share. You’re welcome.

    Um, ew?? Can’t even be angry at the guy–the girls are letting him get away with this behavior!

    I was just watching the Girls Next Door; do they think that if it’s in a TV show, then it’s ok?

    I have so many questions as to how this works: if GF 1 has the bedroom arena, where do GF2 and X get it on? Ugh, please don’t say the couch…

    Yea, they actually do watch trash like Girls Next Door/The Hills – it’s tragic!

    Umm… they definitely do go beyond acceptable behaviour in the lounge…but I think of late (since they both found out about each other) the room is okay again. Or they may occasionally go out to who knows where?

    He’s moving out in two weeks, so at least we don’t have to witness the nasty!

    Drama drama drama. Circumstances like that are only good on MTV reality tv shows. And even then, come on, how good is it really? Thanks for the story because it made me appreciate my relationship all the more. 🙂

    […] A fascinating post from Rachel Hills: we all think other people are more promiscuous than we are. The thing is, at least out west, they actually are! Here, acquaintances will knowingly (drunkenly, but still) hit on your boyfriend. At your own party. Cheat while their other half is in another room at the same party. And so on. Hey, remember my old flatmate? […]

    […] came and went. One of the flatties literally had a walk in closet for a room. Another had a bit of casual polygamy going on. Lots of Naruto was […]
