Mr. I Turn Into a Stunt Man When You Break Up With Me

I love 24 - I especially love it when Jack jumps out of moving vehicles. That is definitely my favorite signature move. I never expected to see it, however, in real life. I have since learned to always expect the unexpected.


We have all been there - at first the relationship is great and things look promising. Then after a few months you are thinking, "why am I spending all my time with this person when I don't feel anything?" But you drag your feet because you don't want to hurt them. Maybe if I had done it earlier he wouldn't have hurt himself in a 24-worthy stunt move.


After attending a bonfire with all our good friends, I drove my boyfriend home. While driving I had that urge - just do it. Just break up now and stop putting it off. I hesitated and then blurted it out - "I think you are a really great guy and I hope we can be friends but I just don't feel like this is right and I think we should stop seeing each other." All that in one quick breath. Then I tried to brace for the worst by looking away so I wouldn't see how much damage I had done. That didn't end up being a problem when all I heard was my car door open... I quickly looked over only to see my recent ex doing a body roll out of my moving vehicle! He didn't say anything - just jumped out of the car. I tried to convince him to get back in the car as he hobbled alongside the road to no avail.

Needless to say 24 has never been the same...

OMG!!! How fast were you driving? Was he injured? That is brave/scary thing to do!

I guess that answered the question I emailed you the even better thing is when you want to jump out of a moving vehicle to avoid the end of the date.
