I was tempted to turn the site over to Leilani because I was convinced I’d found a guy I’d be with for a long time. He was GORGEOUS, driven, a divorced dad, athletic, smart, funny, and said the absolutely RIGHT thing EVERY TIME. Boy, you could say he was too good to be true. Oh wait. That’s ’cause he was.
I fell for every line he threw at me. Compliments left and right. Told me he could see us together forever. That he’s never felt such an instant connection with any like this before. BLAH BLAH BLAH. HOOK, LINE, and SINKER.
I feel so stupid. I let my guard down for the first time in a very long time, and after 2 weeks of being fed this bullshit I told myself that I was starting to fall in love! I haven’t been “in love” in about 15 years, so needless to say, I was really freaking excited about this!
I invited him over to my house (don’t do that), cooked him a fabulous dinner (that either), and well, let him stay over. (sorry, no details are going to be shared this time)
The next morning around 9 am, I get a lengthy text message telling me that I just am not what he’s looking for, I’m wonderful, etc, but this isn’t going to work. Wished my ass luck. WHAT THE FUCK! How can someone go from saying you make me so happy, to eh, no thanks in 12 fucking hours???????
My theory? He went back to his ex-girlfriend. Oh yeah. The ex-girlfriend who he cheated on his wife with and moved in with when his wife kicked him out. Fucking asshole.
I lamented the end of that bullshit fest for a few hours and then decided I was better than that. I hopped back online, threw out a few emails on Match, and had 2 dates scheduled for the next day. I know that’s fast, but it was just a lunch date and afternoon coffee date. No biggie.
See, that’s what happens when you let your guard down, get kicked in the gut, and then decide to say Fuck you. You get your life back. I’m back in the saddle, baby!!
