I thought about it for a while, but there really is just the one really bad one. Oh man. Here goes.....
When I was in college I may have been kind-of, sort-of, dating two guys at the same time.
It was long distance. Still, not really a excuse. I just liked them both.
Ok. But that isn't the worse part.
One December, while I was at school, I decided to send both "boyfriends" a package for Christmas.
Can you see where this is going?
After carefully selecting each personalized item and writing each a letter, I boxed the packages up.
Yes. I did. I SWITCHED the labels. I sent each boyfriend the WRONG PACKAGE.
I can say that now. But at the time. It was the most humiliating, horrible thing ever. I think I was on the phone with one boyfriend when he opened the package and was confused at one of the things I sent. I cannot express the mortification.
Now the worst part is still to come.
In the case of the boyfriends.... One boyfriend and I soon broke up. (Go figure.) But we weren't a good fit, so that worked out ok. The other boyfriend laughed at me and my total lameness, and we dated for a year or so more. We are still good friends.
Now for the bad part.
I kind-of, sort of, became famous for that incident. At my (very large) university, people would approach me all the time, asking if I was the girl who switched her boyfriends packages. Once someone heard my name, they would gasp and say, are you "that Natalie"????
I'm pretty sure what roommate spread the news, and I had to live with that rep for the next two years of school.
What would I re-do? Maybe not date two guys at the same time? Probably. Pay more attention to my mailing techniques? YES!
So there you go. Don't worry Shane, I've changed my ways. I'm as loyal as they come.
And speaking of avoiding do over moments...
