#WhatTheHellHappened: To the Woman Who Wasn’t Sure If She Was an Asshole — or the Guy Was Just a Huge Egomaniac

For this week’s #WhatTheHellHappened, we caught up with Liz, who went on a couple of dates with this guy before realizing she just wasn’t into it and broke it off. He then sent her a long, dramatic text (which you can see below) that had her questioning whether or not she was the asshole or this guy was just a pathetic egomaniac. We obviously did not hold back our opinions. I said: “This is the crazy email you draft to your ex of several years, sleep on it, and then STILL decide not to send, because you’re not that pathetic,” while my mom added that, “He’s probably in his Mom’s basement right now, sticking pins in the voodoo doll he made of you. What a creep!” Overall, we thought she dodged a major bullet and had no reason to feel guilty.

So, #WhatTheHellHappened? Here’s a refresher on Liz’s original story, and an update from her below! 

“I went on a couple of dates with someone, and he seemed like a good guy, but I just wasn’t feeling it. Monday night we went out for dinner and the thought of kissing him again at the end of the evening just didn’t feel right to me. I didn’t want to do it, so I told him I just didn’t think it was working out. Didn’t hear from him throughout the day Tuesday, but right before bed he sent me this text:

“…I’m 27. I’m the last of my friends that’s still single. I know that I’m still young but the thought of being alone terrifies me. Is he right? Am I actually a terrible person?” – Liz

So, #WhatTheHellHappened to her?

I did run into him at the grocery store a few months back. I walked past him and completely missed him until he came to tap on my shoulder. He just wanted to let me know he’s married now and that he was taking his new wife some flowers. He said they got married exactly a year after him and I had our first date and he hoped I wasn’t too upset about it… can’t say I’ve thought about him at all since I submitted that story. Sorry dude!
