Time Travel Lover

The ability to time travel can be dangerous if you alter anything in the past but this guy attempts to ward off future heartache.

An amorous couple walks into a dark apartment, lip-locked while stumbling across the living room and landing onto the couch. All of a sudden, the lights in the room turn on and another man seems to phase into our dimension – it’s the same guy on the couch but with a different sweater. Even though it’s a familiar face, it doesn’t stop both the man and the woman from screaming their heads off.

After calming them down, the duplicate guy explains that time travel gets invented the next day and that he’s the same guy but three weeks in the future. As they begin to understand the significance of the event, the woman states her amazement only to be met with an admonishment from the future guy and a warning to the present version, claiming that she’s crazy.

Appalled by his rudeness, the present version comes to her defense but the future guy explains that they have sex that night and she goes radio-silent for three weeks. While she sheepishly looks around, avoiding eye contact, the future guy continues by explaining the extent of his endeavor to make sure she wasn’t dead, by cyber-stalking of her Facebook friends. Embarrassed by his future self, the present guy passes judgment and expresses disappointment on his behavior.

Once she asks both versions of the same guy to leave her apartment, the present guy hesitates as if to express that he shouldn’t be held accountable for the future version of himself. Frustrated with the present guy’s resistance, the future guy exclaims that she’s seeing two other people – a bombshell for the present guy. She admits to the other, non-serious relationships but explains that it was because she was afraid she liked him more than he liked her – a bombshell for the future guy.
