Default Girlfriend Left Me

So in other news.. lol

My girlfriend & I have been having all these messed up problems, we've been through a lot only to think of it as becoming stronger.

We've had a few scares this winter but the time has come.

I've been through breakups before & if I just think of myself in the future, I'll be laughing about this.

I feel awfully crappy right now, & it'll probably suck even more later on.

It's weird, it's seems as though when we patch up our differences, I get into this "comfortable" mode, & I least expect it when she goes all crazy again.

In a way I do see it as my fault. I bring all my frustrations from work right into my every day life. If I see something out of place it comes natural to me to just force it right, & I never take no for an answer.

I knew from the start she wasn't a very bright girl, the best thing I had going for me was the ability to teach her many new things which made me feel pretty damn good. She'd been babied through life & before I could try to have a good time, I'd be too busy giving her lessons which her brain could not handle. I was her biggest critic, & the only reason for that was so I wouldn't be so annoyed with her. I wanted her to change from a dreamer to a person in touch with reality.

My girlfriend had a lot in her that I liked, but I say that about every girl I date long term.

When we first started dating, I wasn't really interested or willing to "fall in love", I actually thought love was an evil spell, & I never wanted to feel insecure. After a year I thought about how I'd feel if she vanished & I changed my ways, & I started taking our relationship seriously. The sad part is, she'd always whine about how I wouldn't give her my heart, & when I finally did, she changed into a cold beast of a lady.

I like where I am right now, I feel like I didn't lose anything that couldn't be replaced. And I know that I have a habit of getting involved with the crazy ladies, though they are hot.

She called me 10 minutes ago & this is how our conversation went:

Scott: Hello?

Woman: Your going to hate me.

Scott: What now?

Woman: It isn't working.

Scott: Well that's too bad, I need your printer.

Woman: What?

Scott: The flyers have to go out soon.

Woman: I'm not happy, & I know your not happy.

Scott: No, I'm pretty happy.

Woman: I don't want to see you anymore, ever.

Scott: See, you need to understand that there is work to be done, & now is not a good time. If you don't want to be with me anymore, that's cool, but I need you as an employee this year.

Woman: You sound too happy, have you been cheating on me?

Scott: No, I'm far too lazy for that.

Woman: Well you should see other people.

Scott: I'm not really interested actually.

Woman: Well you should go hook up with xXXx

Scott: What's the rush? I have more important things to do right now.

Woman: I have to go.

Scott: Ok, good luck!

**** Best conversation ever. If I let her feel as if I'm not hurt = I win the emotional battle!

Annnnd now I learned my lesson. Still too damn young for this crap, & now I can go meet this other girl who's been dying to go out with me. I'm a horrible person.

As for now, I need to drink my sorrows away & avoid depressing music as I pack her bags.

I'm p'd off because I have all these new garden clients & I need 2 people to take care of them, she better not quit on me.

She was a damn good worker, I felt we could build a very good relationship by building a company together & just watch the money flow in so we could build a better future for the both of us. Though while I was with her, I hardly ever discussed Breeze with her.

Pros:

She's going to hate it when I start raking in the money. I hope she enjoys paying for her college & bills while working at a craft store part time making $5.00 a day (seriously). I gave her a suggestion to work at other places so she could at least make minimum wage, but she doesn't understand the difference. She quit being a slave at a car company cleaning toilets & dusting cars, only to get this crap job. She has no idea how valuable I was to her financially. She never paid for anything.

So when she sees my company grow & how I get away with sexual harassment with my new beautiful garden weeder, it will surely haunt her.


CONS: DUn Dunnn DUnnnn!

Well the fact is, I was with her for a long time so I have grown attached. It's the time in my life everyone starts getting pregnant & married, everyone is serious & it's time to prepare for the future. I really wanted to do well so that we could be happier in time, though I have always made an effort to focus on the present. I never got to the point of thinking about marriage or anything too crazy, but the fact is, you gotta work hard in this world to get nice things! She didn't understand the way I was thinking, she's one of those, "money grows on trees" type of people.

When we'd talk about money, it'd anger her. Only because she's the one spending all of it, while I'm here saying, "hey listen, we need to live off of that". So all in all, the last few months we just lounged around saving "my" money, not being luxurious as usual because of her spending habits.

I gotta make one thing clear, she understood our money issue, though the way she felt because of it was too strong/negative to think logically, so it's over.

So now that I am single, unless some sort of weird thing happens and we end up back together after a misunderstanding hug fest, these things do happen. When we broke up before, I let another girl know about it, but never told her I got back together with my ex, hahaha. So now it's date timeeee.

Party On.

Let this be a lesson to all of you. You are a warrior, sadness does not exist. We have hair on our chest for one reason, we are men. HOO-RAHH!

Live by the mower, die by the mower.


I think my brothers girlfriend has a sister.... keep it in the family... LMAO
