Breaking Up Is Good

My girlfriend of two years, Gloria, said she was going out one night. I didn't think much of it at the time. However, when she came home, she had another man with her. She introduced him as Brad, her "date." Then she told me I could date others too, she wanted an "open" relationship. I couldn't believe it. I left that night and was heartbroken. However, I went out on a date with Ginny about two weeks later. She was a girl I knew in school and had always liked. We hit it off and ended up getting married about a year and a half later. You never know, sometimes breaking up is the best thing.
