I’ll Be Watching You

Post break-up, social media tools like Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Flickr, etc all have the ability to turn you into a stalker. You don’t need to call, email, text or God forbid go around your ex partner’s house to know what’s happening in their lives — all you need to do is remain friends through these social media channel. This of course delays the healing process which is not ideal. As such, I have cut ties to MrFixIt Guy through these various channels.

Never Date the Gardener

I’ve been getting perspective from a male friend who knows MrFixItGuy about the situation. And before telling me he didn’t want to talk about MrFixItGuy anymore after one too many conversations on the matter, he said: “well the last thing I’m going to say about this is that it’s like falling in love with your gardener.” No I wasn’t in love with him, but I knew exactly what he meant. Sure we were childhood friends, but our adult lives were extremely different and our paths never would have crossed — not socially and definitely not professionally. He — MrFixItGuy — […]
