FIRST LOVE We sent two exes out for dinner and there were fireworks alright…

I met Zack in a club just over two years ago. The first thing I remember about him was how talkative and well-dressed he was. I was on a night out with some friends when he came over. We got chatting and it didn’t take long before we were kissing. At the end of the night we swapped numbers and started dating almost immediately afterwards.
At first we had a lot of fun. I’m quite a shy person, so I liked that he was confident and chatty, and my friends loved him: they thought he was really sweet. But things changed as time went on. He was so cute and polite when we first met, but the more I got to know him, it became clear he wasn’t that person. He was cocky and in-your-face, and he tried too hard to present a ‘cool’ image of himself when he was around his friends. Just before my 21st birthday, we broke it off by text. I didn’t want to do it in person. I wasn’t bothered when it ended – although when we’d met, I’d wondered if he could end up being my big first love, I know now that I never loved him. He was definitely more into it than I was.
When we met up, we barely mentioned our relationship – there’s nothing more to say. I thought the date could be a good chance for us to start a friendship, but I was surprised by the kind of person he turned out to be; he was laddish and image-obsessed. I was also annoyed when I left, as he was constantly trying to flirt with me – on the drive home I was stuck in traffic and he messaged me saying that I should have just stayed at his instead. I thought it was a sly thing to say, and I haven’t spoken to him since then.
