Really I'm hurt lmao, but I'm dealing with it. Went out and had a few beers with a friend & discussed positive things, like my other ex who has been calling me a lot recently (she was the one that got away, nice girl). Might go catch a movie with her if she's up for it, but deep down inside I know I don't like her that way, & if I tried she'd just be a rebound. Sucks.

My ex that just broke off with me had the nerve to call me back & say, "By the way I just wanted to tell you that I'm really happy! Bla bla bla" WTF, she's lucky I don't mulch her a55! It's ok though, two can play at this game. Man if it wasn't wrong to swear on this forum, i'd be full of creative words.


Just something I observed: most (not all, but most) !!HOT!! girls are also psycho. Like said, that does not apply to all HOT girls but it seems to apply to most of them. Demure girls tend to be more appreciative and sensible. Heck sometimes they are even down right smart and willing to work!!!

Hot girls are wacko, honestly I should have listened to my friends more. Every girlfriend of mine has fit the same category with their looks and personality, all ending up becoming psychos. I'm not even kidding. I can't remember one girlfriend NOT hitting me or throwing something heavy at me. One of them tried to kill me once, she was the hottest. I have scars!

I had a girlfriend who I broke off with because she was just gross. She turned all goth on me, and let's not forget she was a mute (she had a speech problem) which was something that struck my curiosity. The problem with her is... You have a woman who wears way too much black & she's white & can't talk.. I'm dating a damn mime. Not to mention she wore her B.O as perfume.


But what can I say, I just turned 29 (on the 25th), I am still single, and have not had a girl friend in like 4 years...... lol

I'm jealous, seriously I cannot stay single. For some reason I just get the ball rolling as soon as a breakup happens. I think every girlfriend of mine was a rebound & I forget to break it off, so I get stuck in a rut.

I honestly have no belief for this sort of love, but if I can manipulate a woman to be the one for me, that'll do nicely! I'll keep it simple & buy my next girlfriend romance movies she can watch alone. (some *cough*) woman take this stuff too seriously. I had to sit through this movie where a girl leaves her established fiancee for this other punk in Ireland who has nothing going for him. Every time a movie like that ends, all I can say is, "What happens to them in 2 years when the woman realizes this guy has no money, that the fun times faded away & your little romantic field trip in his Ireland becomes boring?"

Life is not a fantasy, the problem with my ex was patience. Sure we could have been romantic, if only I had given up on my company to go roll around in the damn snow. lol. What I tried to explain to her is, "let's secure ourselves a little more ($$$$$), so that we can do even BIGGER & BETTER things.

The worst thing too, because she was so babied growing up, she took everything I've done for her for granted & still to this day has no clue how much effort I put into our relationship.

Like common, every odd weekend with her costs me $300.00. She literally has no idea where this money comes from & when I tell her it's, "Yeah I know"... One time she said, "So don't spend money, we don't need it to be happy!" ...

Why did she break up with me? Because without money, laying in bed all day watching movies on the internet just didn't cut it.

Here is how our typical day used to go.

I pick her up & we drive (gas)
We go & buy movie tickets ($21.00)
We grab lunch ($40.00)
We watch the movie
We go to buy dvds, 6 because that's their sale ($40.00)
We buy snacks ($10.00)
We order out dinner ($50.00)
or we go out to dinner ($80.00)

So a minimum of $161.00 and a maximum of $191.00

So it gets expensive, though that's not the problem at all. In fact I love it, the problem is she lacks being grateful.

I remember I wanted to take her to get a massage before she had a big sports tournament. Let's say she wanted to go on Thursday.

On Monday she decides to flip out & tell me things aren't working out, I wasn't in the mood or ready at all to deal with this problem. So I offered to take her out so we could discuss all these problems. We had a very expensive & romantic night where she "fell in love all over again" with me...

Thursday comes along, I tell her, "I wont be able to get you that massage, taking you out the other day used up all I had"

She said, "Well wtf? I have a tournament Friday & I thought I'd be able to get one before then, my week is ruined"

Good lord man, the effort I have put into this girl had me laughing... Honestly I think she drove me a little insane.

I don't think I ever yelled at any person so much, or as loud as I have to her.


My problem as her boyfriend was HER. She caused me to get aggravated & impatient enough to yell at her every damn second.

A week before today, I actually said, "I don't mean anything by this, but do you know if you have any brain issues? Maybe we can go see a doctor" lol

I wasn't saying it to be mean, she really has me believing she's a tard.


I typed a lot... wow. I'm not even going to read what I wrote above, LOL.

Feels good to get it all out in the open, that's for sure.

A life lesson I follow:

If you argue in a relationship, keep it to yourselves. The more people you get involved, the harder the problem is to solve. No one understands your relationship other than the people in it, & other peoples opinions will always be negative when your partner or you are telling them how upset you are.

And marriage counseling, if it works that's great. If it doesn't, just imagine how depressing that must feel? People will surely break up if they are able to say, "we failed our counseling, isn't that enough?" getting people involved is silly. Suggestions are nice, but only if the person your telling them to isn't gullable or easy to manipulate.

I AM DONE.




I write too much
