69. Well, not laughed at
but just about every adult with any sort of active social life has at one point or another felt rejected, dumped, let go, given their walkin' papers, whatever you want to call it.

A fellow I had a long-standing attraction to was be charming and flirty. He would talk with me at length on any given subject. It always seemed to me that we had fun when we spent time in one another's company. But he never gave any indication that there was more to it for him than the sort of light, meaningless flirtation that is standard in many social circles. So I summoned up my courage and told him point blank that I was interested in him, romantically. (I was afraid I'd crap my drawers, I was so nervous.)

In the spirit of that same honesty he assured me he could never find himself romantically attracted to me. He had a thing for big-breasted Amazon blondes, and dammit he "deserved one." This scrawny, underweight little brunette never felt so unenchanting in her whole life. I held it together nicely (I think) but I went home and cried for a week.

Jeff L., -wherever you maybe in this world: I'm sure your Lady Love has at least one big boob.

In the "you've been dumped" department, I think the most spectacular occasion was when the guy I'd been seeing for about 6 or 7 months just dropped off the radar. Quit calling, ceased stopping by, didn't seem to show up at any of the usual spots. Friends of his just looked uncomfortable, said he "wasn't in town right now and they didn't know when he'd be back."

He showed up to comfort me a few years later at the funeral for the man who'd been my lover for most of the intervening years. We're actually quite close friends now, but I still do not recommend the 'evaporation' method to anyone hoping to end a relationship. That's one ugly f*cker of a way to find out you're not necessary to someone's continued happiness.
