“Fool for you”

clashes manners

It wasn’t over when: 1. She ran out crying to her friend’s home and left me with her teen son. 2. She told me that I should hide from her ex-husband so she wouldn’t be sued. 3. She introduced me as her friend. 4. She presumed that she knew more about me than me. 5. She belittled me in front of others. No. After years of enduring humiliations, it was over when she told me, “I’m not happy.” At which point I had a nuclear meltdown.

Aftermath: Love blinds a man from reality. Love makes a man a fool. I am now relieved and happily enjoying the company of someone that appreciates me.

“Financial support and not much else”

chemistry clashes manners

He told me that he’s too busy for a girlfriend and all my “needs”. I can stick around and he will support me financially but not to expect much else for at least the next couple years until he gets his business running smoothly.


Aftermath: Still trying to figure out how to extradite myself. I work in one of his businesses. Leaving him means being homeless AND jobless.

First date-went to a regular restaurant. She ordered the most expensive item on the menu. Later we stopped at a comedy club, and she ordered the highest liquor they had.


Aftermath: Took her home and never called again

“Schizophrenic? Bi-Polar?”

clashes manners weird

It should have been over when he sent me a text informing me that he’d been lying to me for a month about who he was – his name, everything. Being a forgiving person, I chose to look past it for his honesty, only to be dumped 2 days before Valentine’s Day because we’d “grown apart.”


Aftermath: The same night he dumped me, he called me because I hadn’t tried to contact him after, and said he missed me and that he can’t not talk to me. CHECK. MATE.

“Too Tired”


I was on my way home from his house and hit a deer. When I called to ask him to come get me, he said, “I’m too tired for this right now.”


Aftermath: We dated for a year after that.
