Have you ever gone to see a movie and sat there thinking the entire time, “Wow this is the story of my life?” Well, I never had until I saw Something Borrowed (Amazon) and sadly, it was like watching my love life flash before my eyes. (Minus the lawyer job, living in NYC and the age).
Movie plot: (Thanks to the back of my DVD case). Rachel is a generous and loyal pal to her engaged best friend Darcy. But after celebrating her 30 birthday, perpetual good girl Rachel unexpectedly ends up in the arms of Dex, the guys shes had a crush on since law school and who happens to be Darcy’s fiance. In the frantic weeks leading up to Darcy’s wedding, Rachel finds herself caught between her longtime friendship with Darcy and the prospect of losing the love of her life.
My love life: I met Aiden my sophomore year of high school. (I’m now a sophomore in college). We were best friends for a year and then started to date. Well we fell in love and then life got in the way, and we broke up. Senior year we became really close again and started talking, but we were both taken. Well this summer, the day before my birthday, we started talking and realized that we felt the same way about each other. Problem? I was engaged. Well we ended up acting on those feelings for three months. Then the day I went to tell him that I broke things off with fiance, I learned that he was now taken.
I’m not sure if I even have the right to be mad seeing as I was taken, but I was practically dating him at the same time. I feel terrible about what I did and my fiance and I are still very close friends. Aiden keeps acting like nothing has changed. He keeps telling me how much he misses me and then I see things on Facebook about how much fun he and his girlfriend are having.
What would you do if you were in my situation, Lovelies? Have you ever watched a movie that had a plot similar to your life?
