Sex & the Single Woman: Jesse’s Girl

One of my roommates has hit rock bottom.

The other day she was mentioning her dating potential and dismally told me that in a worst-case scenario, she always has an ex’s ex-roommmate.

Let’s rewind.

Years back she dated a guy and his roommate was in love with her. So much that he would play the song “Jesse’s Girl” in her honor. Yes, guys actually do that. While I’m sure he will make some girl very happy some day … my roommate was not that girl. And there will never be her day. Suffice it to say, she was definitely not interested.

Now, years later, she is left with the confidence that if everything else falls through, at least she can go back to this guy. He will always care for her.

And if not, at least she has the song.
