My not-super-close friend Rivka (I know her through Heather) was at her high school reunion a few weekends ago. When she was there, she ran into a girl she went to high school with. Imagine that. This high school classmate happened to be the same high school classmate of hers who we ran into when we were out on St. Patrick's Day. She was out with Luke and his friends.

This girl - Brittany - knows Luke. And has since college. That night, I got the impression that she was in pretty tight with his group of friends. She seemed to know him (and his brother and his sister-in-law and his best friend) really well.

When I saw Rivka on Saturday, she asked me about Luke straight away. "You're not seeing him anymore, right?"

I laughed. "Definitely not."

"I ask because Brittany was at my reunion..."


"And she said 'warn your friend with the curly hair that Luke isn't a good guy. He doesn't treat women very well.'"

Of course, I don't know this girl or her history with Luke or if she's mentally stable or if she's overprotective of her guy friends or if she was just jealous of how stunning and beautiful and charming I am (hahahaha) or if she just likes to cause trouble, but still. Not what I expected to hear (especially since I'd been so sure that he was too good of a guy, too nice, too into me).

Luke isn't in the picture. He hasn't been for almost two months now. But I still can't stop thinking about what that girl said. Is it true? Do I have some sort of a sixth sense that smells out bad guys and pushes me far, far away from them? If I have this sixth sense, why hasn't it warned me about The Athlete? And why, by the way, can't I just quit The Athlete? And what is it about Luke that qualifies him for bad guy status? Would I have liked him more if I hadn't thought he was such a sickingly sweet, nice guy?

None of it means a thing, really, because I made my decision a long time ago.

I maybe I dodged a bullet with that one.

I would drive myself crazy wondering about the comment. Good for you for realizing that it doesn't really matter.

Hmm...I think I'd be skeptical that she has potential jealousy issues and is trying to mess something up she thinks might be there. BUT, since it fizzled out and you werent that into him anyway, like you said, it doesn't matter. Next! :o)
