"Everything’s going to be okay. That’s what you wanted to hear, isn’t it, Cancer?"
...it sure is.
@PotatoPotato You pun was bad and you should feel bad!
I approve of this whole thread (pun intended).
@punkahontas Time would fly!
I honestly don't understand why guys feel the need to be so pretentiously dramatic about a "breaking things off" kind of deal, especially when it's not that serious. Like, did you proofread your fucking email and realize how awful it is? Just say, "Hey listen, I'm not that interested." SIX WORDS NO MORE NEEDED.
at least, that's my opinion. "Ohhhh I hope I didn't lead you on" "I hope I'm not being a dick" "I hope your fragile little heart will be able to live without the blessing of my love"
even the compliments piss me off. I don't fucking need you to tell me I'm being courageous. I don't need your shitty ass pity validation. Get the fuck out of my life.
so how was everybody else's weekend?
This whole paragraph right here, we all need to live vicariously through you because it is THE BEST!
It backfired, of course, but once I got over the initial shock of Ely’s email, I was mad as hell. That’s important, too. My momentary aligning myself with my aggressor — and his hatred of me, when you get right down to it, not only for having the gall to be flawed but also for spotlighting his own tremendous shortcomings — gave way to what I know: that I am worthy of being loved. How dare Ely insinuate I’m not. How dare he think I am somehow not good enough for him. I never responded to his email, but I did see him at a local café once. He positioned himself behind a column so that he was partially concealed, and I liked knowing he was uncomfortable. I liked knowing that he was the one who felt the need to hide.
What kind of douchebag comments on his date's posture? I know that's the least of his douchiness, but it bugs the shit out of me.
Carla, you are so beautiful and brave! I'm glad you know it, too. Thank you for sharing this with us.
@dj pomegranate Best convo I ever had with my Ph.D. advisor:
Her: (blah blah blah breathing fumes on me)
Me (blinking): Would you like some gum?
Her: No, thank you.
Me: Yes you would.
Her: Oh. Ohhhh. Yes, please.
@WhiskeySour No banana should ever be that nonchalant. :-/
