My Worst First Date: “Getting to know all about my Valentine’s ex-wife”

It wasn’t my intention to initiate anything on Valentine’s Day. I just happened to be on my way home from the gym and I was bored. So I ventured on to Tinder and stumbled upon Asher’s profile. Ordinarily, I would wait for the man to text me first, but that day I decided to shake things up by starting the conversation.

Can you remain friends with your ex?

My very first relationship lasted for four years — from the time I was 17 until just before I turned 21.At that age, most of my romantic notions were shaped by sappy movies like A Walk to Remember (if nothing else, I’m sure the ladies remember Shane West) and Love Actually, as well as a generous dose of emo tunes by Green Day and Hoobastank. In short, I thought that my relationships would last a lifetime, and even if they didn’t, everyone involved would all still find it in themselves to get along. Because that’s what being mature is all about, right?
