Met boyfriend... at a lesbian party.

After driving 4 hours to find my now ex with another girl at his house and spending the entire night in tears on the arm of a friend, i then drove 4 hours home the next day and attended my friends 'lesbian party' just planning to get hammered and pass out. Turns out her guy roommate was there and us being the only 2 straight people in the joint, hit it off immediately and have been together over a year. They say it happens when you never expect it...and whoever "they" is, is exactly right.
