Note to Self

Never call your best guy friend again in the middle of a cry storm. Not if it involves your feelings re failed romantic relationships. Oh he’ll be sympathetic all right, but not the way you want him to be. Partially because old history always comes up which while not completely bad, is never really good. Also, when already in a funk, do not read books like Man and Boy by Tony Parson. Oh sure its a brilliant read, that made you laugh out loud at various parts but other parts also made you cry even harder. Also, don’t go see […]

He Haunts Me

Last Wednesday came and went and no second date with ITGuy. Instead I went to a private shopping soiree at William Yeoward. I was totally relieved. Then Thursday, he sends a text message asking if I wanted to meet up on Friday. I didn’t respond. Then he sends another text message. I still didn’t answer. Then he phoned. I decided to answer but politely told him I’d call him back. After some thought, I decided just to send a text message back saying I didn’t want to go out with him again. Gave the somewhat lame excuse that I still […]
