I’m sorry to have to bring this up on the second entry, but I felt this issue had to be addressed immediately, so we can get it out of the way. For your benefit, dear readers, I’ll keep this as short and painless as I can by sticking to the main points. It’ll be over before you know it.
Some months ago, one of my best friends and I were talking about a mutual friend. We’ve always known him to be a good guy, and he has never done anything to anyone for us to doubt that. But, more recently, word went around that he slept with a girl and she never heard from him again afterwards. Now, we all know that happens all the time, but we didn’t think this guy was capable of it. Upon the prodding of common friends, my friend decided to do some investigating of her own.
As it turns out, it didn’t have to be a lengthy, hardcore investigation at all. She caught him online, asked him pointblank, and he readily told her the whole story (Note: He’s really not an asshole. Mutual friend and my friend just happen to be very close).
- Guy met girl and was very interested in her. He thought she was pretty, and she was captivated by his charm and kindness. Guy made the moves and went all out—as in good morning texts, “Did you eat na?” lunchtime messages, saw her every chance he got, the works!
- Two weeks later, guy had to travel abroad for business. They spent the whole day together before he left. And, as goodbyes between kindred souls and the Air Supply song go, they also “shared the night together.” It didn’t go so smoothly.
- According to guy, everything was perfect…until he had to go down on her. Maybe it was an accumulation of the whole day’s sweat and grime, but guy was very much put off by girl’s feminine odor. He was so turned off that he lost all interest.
- Girl was devastated by guy’s disappearance, so she sought solace in the arms of comforting girlfriends who couldn’t provide her with an answer either.
- Luckily, one of her girlfriends knew my friend and asked my friend to investigate on her behalf.
- Unluckily, given the reasons behind guy’s disappearance, my friend didn’t know what to say, how to say it, or if she should just keep her mouth shut.
