Once an ex, always an ex! That is the modern rule of dating; a fashion adopted by many lovers in today’s age. The rule entails being incommunicado with your ex-partner, at least for years, if not a lifetime.
Well, this phrase does not apply to one British lad named Tom who decided to initiate a conversation with four of his ex-lovers – all at the same time. He added them to a WhatsApp group and sent them a festive message wishing them a drunken ‘Merry EX-mas’.
Expectedly, the WhatsApp conversation was awkward, hilarious and full of mutual accusations.
For two of Tom’s ex-partners the conversation went down like a lead balloon. One left the conversation in revulsion without saying a word.
But one of them found the entire exchange hilarious – and even ended up agreeing to go on a date with courageous Tom.
He began the atypical conversation with a pert opener: “Merry Christmas girls I just thought you might want to share some memories of me with each other as am lonely this year and miss the lot of ya [sic].”
“I just thought I wanna get you all together in a group and say thanks for spending parts of your life with me even if it was a long time or a short time Bella lol (sic).”
Ex-girlfriend Gemma wrote back “wow” but Bella was a little more frank in her response: [expletive] off Tom, seriously. You really are a [expletive] disgusting [expletive].”
At that point ex-girlfriend Lisa left the chat without making a comment.
Bella added: “Do you really think this is funny? Putting me in a group with a girl I know you slept with while we were together?!”
At this point ex-girlfriend Steph joins the conversation: “Ok woah pet think what you want but Tom said you weren’t together after the holiday coz you [expletive] it (sic).’
An incensed Bella replies: “We were together ‘pet’ and Tom just lied to you like he does to everyone. He’s a pig.”
At this point Tom decides to set the record straight and writes: “Erm no Bella we weren’t together coz you went back up to Brid and just [expletive] me off and I sent you a message saying we were over (sic).”
An outraged Bella has clearly had enough and vehemently replies: “On Facebook which you should have known I never [expletive] check you [expletive].”
With the entire conversation descending into a circus Gemma mentions how hilarious she is finding the exchange, prompting an enraged Bella to direct her fury at her: “And who the [expletive] are you!?!?!?”
But an unruffled Gemma replies: “Me n Tom were together in school but we’re still mates find ur chill love (sic).”
Tom, who was clearly enjoying himself, added: “I just wanted to wish you all merry Christmas and Bella you’ve ruined it all again.”
After a few more choice swear words on their parts, an indignant Bella and Steph leave the conversation, leaving just a tipsy Tom and Gemma in the conversation.
