Ex girlfriend tried to hit me with her car. Chased me down an alley that was enclosed in a high fence on one side condos on the other.
Proceeded to call me next day at work and tell me that I looked like a sexy cheetah running away from her car.

You relive every memory.

he never wanted love.
He only wanted attention.
He only wanted validation.
