Broken – This World is Too Small

As the spring turned into early summer I was kicking around talking to a few people and Jennifer. We had slept with each other a few times but it never progressed into true romance.

Broken is a story that is best read Chronologically to start from the beginning – Prologue

As the spring turned into early summer I was running like Forrest Gump and talking to a few people but mostly Jennifer. We had slept with each other a few times but it never progressed into true romance.

We spent so much time talking about or ex’s that it would be nearly impossible to forge our on romantic bond. We would talk about the amazing connections.. her with Gregg and mine with Hailey.

We would also talk about the problems in our relationships. They were very similar. Almost eerily so. We both found it so hard to reconcile our relationships. How do people tell us how great we are and love us so much but leave.

I warned her that I thought Gregg would return. I don’t know why I felt that way. I just had a strong intuition that he would. Even a time frame. The pattern seemed to be there and I was familiar with these patterns with Hailey. Even if I didn’t understand the root cause.

Sure enough one day I get a message from Jennifer… He texted me! Oh here we go. I knew right then and there it would be the end of mine and Jennifer’s sex. Or any slim hopes of romantic connection. But I was more than ok with it. At this point in my healing I needed a friend far more than a girlfriend.

She would tell me how he was re-engaging. She said that everything I predicted was almost true. I was almost living vicariously through her this time. She got to see this connection through. And I wanted to see how it would manifest in the real world.

It was then I asked more about Gregg. About who he was and what was his background. I was supportive of Jennifer but wanted to ensure he was a good guy. I was protecting her. I know this friendship will be around for a while.

When the conversation landed on his own situation with going through a divorce. She started to describe his dynamic with him and his ex wife I suddenly started to think. Where have I heard this story before. Then she mentioned something about his ex living with her mom and all their kids and where they lived the pieces came together… Holy SHIT!! It’s Tammy!! Tammy is Gregg’s soon to be ex-wife. How can this fucking be? Within in a matter of 2 months I slept with Gregg’s ex-wife and ex-girlfriend.

I honestly didn’t know whether to laugh hysterically or hang my head in shame. I could foresee Gregg coming back to Jennifer, but didn’t see that coming. WTF! Why is my life so comical in a sick and twisted way. It’s like an episode of Threes Company meets Californication. Do I tell Tammy… I mean Jennifer? lol.

Hi, I’m Matt. Just your average uneventful guy. Dedicated Dad, emapth, and nurturer. Going through something I couldn’t possible ever thought possible. My story is called Broken. About an affair at the end of a long marriage and how ultimately I experienced the worst heartbreak of my life. It's honest, raw, and a little bit entertaining. I hope to share my story so people can learn while being therapeutic for myself.

  1. I know someone who stopped looking at the general vicinity he lives in because he discovered that all the women he was interested in somehow knew the women in his life, past and present. “They all know each other” he said.. lol He now looks at a new geographical location. 🙂

    That’s too funny. You really do have to tune into your gut instinct when something like this comes up and trust that if you feel there’s something odd going on, there is.

    Anyway, I hope you and J can continue to stay friends. It sounds like you have a great connection and it would be sad all around to see it sever.

  2. First, Californication was a bad ass show.
    Two….we also live in a small town…and I feel a great deal of empathy for people who date in small towns. Everyone knows everyone…and everyone is connected.
    Three….damn, my friend! You must fill us in as to how Jennifer took this news….

    1. Loved Californication!!! Neither Gregg or Tammy are in my town. Or even the one next to me. I was stunned. Still am. You won’t have to wait long to find out.

    1. It’s funny I thought the same thing. How I could I incorporate the song. I was stuck on the Disney ride (which happens frequently I guess) for like 7 minutes one time and wanted to scream. Never Again!!
