I hesitated to look up this name on Facebook. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to see how he was doing. If I had another Ex married I would have to admit I would be a little crushed. I will begin with the story of how I met this man.
We will call him Bobby to protect his identify. I had just came back from visiting Atlanta. I had an email me in my inbox from a guy online. He happened to be in Atlanta. I was thinking damn I just left. I am not going back anytime soon. I was saving up to move but that wasn’t going to be for a year.
I started talking to this guy on the phone. Telephone love was real strong and I was into it. He said everything I wanted to hear and I was falling for every word. These calls were not free it was at a time when long distance cost.
I set up a trip to the ATL. Purely for this man. I stayed in a hotel instead of with my family, because I wanted some privacy with my new man. I rented a car and was off. Well his ass came over we had sex and he disappeared. I called he wouldn’t answer the phone. I called from a pay phone he answered said some bullshit and hung up on me. I being young and lonely in a hotel room started that nasty cry and eventually called a friend in Boston. She built me back up and said don’t let him win and go and have fun.
I called a girl I went to college with that I knew had moved to Atlanta. I dusted myself off got dressed and went out with her and her friends. I didn’t get back to five am in the next day. I was supposed to be leaving the room and it wasn’t the best motel. Actually Asshole pick it out which I will call him, because at this stage of my life I forgot his name completely. It was close to him that is why he picked the place.
I went to the office to pay for an additional day. I was supposed to hang at six flags with my family, but I was so tired that was not going to happen. I run to the office. I looked a hot mess hadn’t even washed my face or brushed my teeth.
I walk in the office. The guy was behind the desk and he was talking to another guy. So the guy behind the desk was hitting on me. I decided to work a discount since he clearly liked me. He gave me a little discount. The other guy was staring also. Here comes Bobby. Bobby wasn’t your standard handsome. Bobby had a thug boy kind of swag. I was feeling it. He asked me if I had eaten breakfast. I just dragged my ass out of bed about ten minutes before. He asked if he could buy me breakfast. I was down. I drove myself trying to be safe. Not even thinking I flew to another state to see a possible serial killer.
I went back to my room brushed my teeth and got myself together. We went to breakfast and hung out the whole day. I drove his car, which was a stick, we went shopping and he went with me to drop my car off at the airport and said bye to me at the gate. He said he would visit me in Boston. I thought it was bullshit.
To my surprised he did visit. I really didn’t believe it until he was at Logan international airport when I picked him up. We had a ball. We went to place in Boston. At the time my family had a summer home on Cape Cod. We spent a night there. This was a fun filled weekend. I was in love. Now I had plans to move in with him when I got to Atlanta.
Bobby backstory. He was in construction and traveled for work. He was staying in that hotel for work but was originally from another state in the south. So he was supposed to get an apartment and when I moved to Atlanta we would be together.
When he left Boston everything was good for a few months. Then a month before I was about to leave I couldn’t find him. Yet he got ghost, I had no idea what happened. I went back to plan A moved to Atlanta and in with my cousin. A year later, I got a letter from prison. I still to this day have no idea what he got locked up for. He has sense been out and moved back home to where he was from. We have communicated on and off for 15 years more off then on. Just writing this I realize how crazy my life was. I have many more crazy stories.
Oh can you believe Asshole hit me up online three years later, not realizing who I was. When I realized who he was I almost fell out. Life is stranger then fiction.
