My Big Fat Greek Boyfriend: The End

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

Eventually, I took Stavro's phone calls and we met for coffee and he started coming around again.  I wouldn't say we were back together but we were keeping each other company and somehow I ended up giving him back the key to my apartment.

In early June, my parents came to visit and I was planning to meet them and my sister at Old Chicago's for dinner.  Bobbi had a new boyfriend and we were all going to be meeting him for the first time.  I was on my way to the restaurant when Stavros called me and asked what I was doing.  I invited him to dinner with us and he said no.  I could tell he was upset about something because he was being short with me.  He called back a few minutes later and said that he was coming.  Great.

Stavro's arrived after we had ordered our drinks and acted kind of huffy that we hadn't waited for him.  My family tried to make conversation with him and he was short with them too.  I couldn't for the life of me figure out what his problem was so I asked him.  He told me he was really angry with me for the way I'd treated his parents and that I'd ruined any chance we had at being together.  I kept trying to tell him that we were never going to really be together because of our cultural difference and the fact that his Mom didn't like me but he just kept harping on things that I was doing wrong.   This went on for 30 minutes...I kept telling him this wasn't the time or place to discuss this and he just kept at it.  I was so embarrassed and I asked him to leave.  He refused, so I ignored him.

Finally, he stomped out of the restaurant.  And then he came back...to give me my key.  Thanks!  Then he came back a second time with $1.79 for his soda that he had ordered.  Thanks. 

When I got home....I discovered my journal on the couch.  He had come to my apartment and read the entire thing.  This is why he was so angry....he had read all that I had written about Ike and Tina and what horrible people I thought they were.  I was furious that he had violated my privacy and I never spoke to him again.

~The End~

Three months later....I met the love of my life.  

*Keep us in your thoughts...a job opportunity is brewing.....

  4. Wow. He went into your apartment and when through your private stuff. What a creep. That really skeeves me out. I don't like my HUSBAND to read my email or text messages. Those are mine and they are private. If he wants to know what is there I would tell him, but he should ask first. That's weird. you lucked out getting rid of that weirdo.

  8. I hope I missed a previous post about this being turned into a book. You do know you're writing a book here, don't you?

    It's juicy, too!

  9. I am so glad you got rid of him! Ugh. Not okay to be going through your personal belongings like that. And what a jerk to meet up for dinner and then be confrontational right there in front of everyone.

  10. You know, those Mediterranean men who live with their parents have serious issues :) I'm glad you were well rid of him - funny that he came back with the money for his soda! Loser. And a job opportunity - how interesting! Def. in my thoughts :)

  11. LOL... not one, but TWO exits! Man, what a DIVA this Stavro's was! Going through your journal though, not so nice... but since he got got more than he bargained for whilst reading it, it's kind of divine justice don't you think. LOL! Besides, Greek men usually always marry Greek woman, right?! A friend of mine spent a few years with a nice Greek boy who dumped her a few weeks before their wedding because his father said he wouldn't inherit the family diners if he married her... Yes. She got dumped for a greasy spoon... sigh.

  22. What a colossal jerk!! I cannot believe he read your journal, my hubby, whom I have been married to for almost 13 years would NEVER read my journal!
    You are SO much better off without him. I read your story of meeting the love of your life and it was so beautiful! I am so happy for you and Calvin.
    Long live love!!
