"I found out that my ex was going to be at the New Year's party I was going to, and I was worried it would ruin my night. So I invited a crush from a nearby city to come, but he actually invited me to his city and said we could celebrate with his family. So I bought this killer outfit and packed my bags.
He picked me up at the bus station, and we had lunch at the mall because according to him, it would take too long for lunch to be ready at his house. Everything was running smoothly until he said, 'I have a lot of relatives staying in the house, so we won't be able to able alone for a while, but I want to get to know you better.'
Long story short: We went to a motel. And when we were done, he said: 'I got something to tell you. Don't be upset, OK? But there's no way you can spend New Year's with us. My whole family will be there, and they'll think you're my girlfriend. But don't worry, I'll take you to the bus station again.'
I've never felt SO STUPID in my entire life. He dropped me off at the bus station and, to avoid feeling like an even bigger loser, I called a friend in town and ended up spending New Year's with him. And it was one of the best New Year's ever! Strangely." - Bruna Lopez
