Dating gave up
It was difficult to have a conversation of substance with him because he never gave a straight answer, constantly asked me if I missed him and picked at me for the smallest things.Texting him always led to arguments because he was so sensitive and when I would address something he did that I didn’t like he said I was talking about something “old” when it only happened the day before. I dated someone who didn’t have a college education and was still trying to figure out where he was going in life at 27.But when it would be time for us to meet up he would cancel. He re-emerged with an apology after a week and yet another excuse as to why he had been sending me to voicemail.I always accepted the excuses he gave me because they seemed legit. He promised to never do it again, but a few weeks after we finally met up he disappeared again. He tried to find his way back into my heart but I dismissed him. When I finally did speak to him and he decided to tell me why he cut me off, it didn’t ease the pain.
When I came across this guy, he made feel like my days of kissing frogs were over. He made me laugh, we both loved music, had thought provoking conversation, had great careers and supported each other. No “I think we should be friends.” Not even a cliche “it’s not you it’s me.” He just left. He broke my heart and I was left to pick up the pieces.
I had two heterosexual female friends who stopped dating men and became lesbians. So when a man with a cane followed me home one day, and not a hip young guy but a wizened senior hooked up to oxygen and dragging his deathbed behind him, I wanted to turn around and yell, “REALLY?
These two women were both pretty, had great careers, and were smart and interesting people. ”although it’s Los Angeles and anyone over 30 is a senior.
At first it was fun to surf through different profiles and get the pertinent details about a guy without asking.
The thought of my potential mate being a tap away was exciting.
