I agree with 1 - 1) you didn't say hi to him either... He could've not noticed you. Also, were you at a restaurant by yourself? Another thing, you didn't mention the kind of place it was, but consider you were there without your boyfriend I'm guessing it wasn't a romantic type place... Guys do have females whom are simply friends, or family. Why do you automatically assume he was on a date?
You know, just because he is eating with a girl, doesn't mean he is on a date. It could have been family. He may not have even noticed you. You should talk to him before assuming.
Not seeing her from the table next to hers? Unless the guy has a very strong sight problem, I don't see how it is possible. So either he has a twin she has not heard of yet (which seems a bit far-fetched but why not) or he is just a douchebag. OP, it's a shame if you didn't confront him. Even getting up and say a friendly hello and a kiss could have been worth while to see his reaction. But I imagine you must have stunned. If he ignored you on purpose, simply count your blessings for not wasting more time with him.
The statement by the OP, "The guy I'm dating" lead me to believe that they were just starting out or weren't very serious yet because if they had been together for a while or were serious already, don't you think she would have said, "My boyfriend"? Who knows the truth, that's just my line of thought based on how the FML was written.
#13 and 27, I initially felt he'd at least have heard and recognized her voice from the next table over, even if he couldn't see her -- then I thought through that I've been in plenty of restaurants that are so loud I've had trouble hearing people at the SAME table, let alone at nearby ones. I'm guessing there were factors OP couldn't fit in the post limit that make it clear she was being ignored and/or that the boyfriend was on a date. Based only on what was included, though, it's still possible the situation was innocent.
Oh wow. If it is how it sounds, you can probably do better anyway.
26- Anytime! :D it's always a pleasure to know I put a smile on at least one person's face every day. 30- Thank you for your kind words, I wasn't sure how my comment would be received by the FML community, since most of the time when somebody says something like what I said people tend to thumb them down :( It's a shame really, shouldn't we encourage kind words? But I will admit there's been a lot of creepers saying vulgar and inappropriate things, which makes it difficult for truly nice people to comment for fear of being labeled as a 'creeper' or 'perv'. It's the same basic principle that causes an internal battle on wether or not someone should hold the door or any kind gesture for another person, male or female, for fear of being verbally, and sometimes physically, abused for being a 'sexist'. My main goal in life is just to help others and put smiles on as many faces as I can. And that's why I'm a nurse!
Before assuming your single again, ask him about it. Maybe it was a business meeting thing.
