He was my first date – ever.
“I kind of want to make out with you in the bathroom, though.”
You begin to want more. You knew you would have to wait for him to come around, but months have passed and everything is still superficial; something is just missing.
You have introduced each other to your friends.
It makes you trick yourself into believing that you really didn’t lose much. If you didn’t lose much, it’s easy to move on. So, you blame them. You demonize them.
I let down my guard, and let the chips fall where they may. Maybe I’ll end up hurt. Maybe he and I will eventually be together. But regardless, I took a risk.
These 10 little steps can change the way you look at life, love, and relationships.
I’m not an easy person to live with, that’s for sure. I have had six serious girlfriends in my life and I have loved maybe one of them – and it certainly wasn’t my baby’s mother. How long can a woman endure living with such a man before she begins to look for love elsewhere?
I can’t be your friend. You want everything to be fine, for us to continue on and be close but it won’t work for so many reasons. I’ll become the ghost who haunts your current relationship, the name that gets brought up when you fight, the point of contention you hate discussing every time she gets upset.
You start to blame everyone around you, because how could caring too much possibly let this happen repeatedly? Well that’s just it, you have to stop caring.
