Setting Up A Hollywood Romance

| Romantic | August 24, 2016

(My girlfriend and I have been dating for seven years. We’d known each other through a friends group for a while. Our friends had always thought we had a thing.)

Friend #1: *through group text* “We should go to a movie!”

Friend #2: “Ya! We should see [Popular New Movie].”

Friend #3: “Ya! Let’s go on [Day two days from now].”

Almost-Girlfriend: “Sounds fun!”

Me: “Sounds great!”

(The next day Friend #3 texts this.)

Friend #3: “Sorry, can’t go to movie! Going to my grandparents.”

(It’s one day away from the movie when Friend #2 texts.)

Friend #2: “Super sorry, it’s my mom’s birthday! Completely forgot; can’t go to movie.”

(It comes the day of the movie. My almost-girlfriend and I are there talking.)

Almost-Girlfriend: “Where’s [Friend #1]?”

Me: “I don’t know. Maybe there’s traffic?”

(We then get a text from my friend.)

Friend #1: “Got in a car accident; can’t get there. You two have fun. ;-)”

(We’re confused as for why he used a winky face, but see the movie together and forget about it. The next week we’re all together.)

Friend #1: “So, how was the movie, you two?”

(As he asks this he winks. My almost-girlfriend and I look at each other.)

Almost-Girlfriend: “Um, it was actually really good!”

Me: “It sucks you guys couldn’t come.”

(All three of our friends smirked and looked at each other, and then explained that they had planned to get us together. Not long after that we started dating. Thank god I made it to that movie, or I would have missed the most wonderful girl in the world.)
