There are a ton of annoying ass people your ex can start dating after you two break up:
-Their co-worker, who you used to go on double dates with.
-Their “platonic” female friend, who you always were suspicious of, but he made you feel paranoid about it.
-Their ex, who he insistedhe never saw anymore.
-Their best friend’s YOUNGER sister, who is in her 20s, and who metabolism hasn’t hit yet.
Really though, anyone you EVER knew when you two were dating is an annoying person to see your ex dating once you two break up.
But there’s annoying, and there’s just plain INNAPPROPRIATE.
I remember fondly a bizarre Toolbag Tuesday of old:
…where my friend’s ex-boyfriend began DATING HER STEPMOM when they broke up.
But I found a new one!!
A new inappropriate person for your ex to date that is equally as EFFED up as dating your stepmom.
Wait…no, not quite.
But a close second.
YOUR MARRIAGE COUNSELOR.
Yes, that is absolutely a breach of professional ethics.
And yes, this actually happened.
It was no secret that my friend Rebecca and her husband Charles didn’t have the best marriage. It was “open” at best.
They decided as a last ditch effort to go see a professional and work out their issues.
Rebecca said the counselor was in her health insurance network and she was young and pretty and they went to four sessions.
Rebecca remembers that this woman got Charles to really “open up” and “be vulnerable” with his feelings.
But after four hours in the tiny office, AT THE THERAPISTS’ CONVINCING, they realized they just didn’t like each other.
It was sort of a breakthrough.
They really didn’tlike each other. So they broke up.
It was sad and embarassing.
Made much worse by the fact that FOUR MONTHS LATER, Rebecca saw on FACEBOOK that Charles was now going out with their therapist.
He and the “professional” were tagged out on the town. At a nice dinner, on a romantic stroll uptown.
LIKING EACH OTHER’S PHOTO.
WHAT IS THE THERAPIST VERSION OF MALPRACTICE?!??!?!?!
CAN YOU SOMEHOW SUE BLUE CROSS FOR THIS????
There is absolutely no way to make someone feel better in this situation, no amount of therapist jokes (BOTH OF THEM ARE CRAZY!!!) that can possibly help.
At least it’s not your stepmom.
