Are You A Fun Friend?

Your one-time BF is listed in your con­tacts as:

A TOTGA, for The One That Got Away.

B Douche Ca­noe or Dildo Bag­gins .... It tends to al­ter­nate be­tween pe­ri­ods of block­ing.

C Stan­dard firstie lastie, like pretty much ev­ery­one from your old boss to your fa­vorite der­ma­tol­o­gist.

A date sug­gests drinks at your for­mer BF’s haunt. You:

A Are to­tally in. You’ll take any op­por­tu­nity to “ac­ci­den­tally” run into him.

B Al­ready go there nightly. You claimed this spot im­me­di­ately af­ter the break-up, #Sor­ryNotSorry.

C Take the reins and steer your date else­where. You only do throw­backs with­out emo­tional bag­gage.

LinkedIn says your old flame got a pro­mo­tion. You:

A Check out his com­pany’s avail­able po­si­tions. How cute would you two be as co­work­ers?

B Find those in­ap­pro­pri­ate pics he texted you and send them straight to his new boss.

C Re­fresh your ne­go­ti­at­ing skills and map out a raise of your own. Thx for the in­spo!

Turns out, you’re in­vited to your ex’s wed­ding. You de­cide to:

A Rent a dress, Spin your butt off, book a blowout, and show up gor­geous.

B Track down the bride’s ex -boyfriend and con­vince him to be your date. Sav­age!

C Po­litely de­cline. You are flat­tered but don’t wanna steal any­one’s thun­der. (Cough, cough, Chelsy Davy.) Aqua­man trailer? Holy Mo­moa mus­cles.
