So I did. Sunday she invited me over for dinner. She’s also going to be my date to a new years eve party. All further proof that I do not understand the contrary nature of woman.
I want to give you some good, good lovin.
because I got played. The girlfriend of the last three years was using me, but now that’s over. Funny thing is, I don’t even think she actually even liked me all that much looking back over it. No more relationships for me for a while. I’m even thinking of taking the next year off from dating.
they get upset at me for changing my profile status to “single” on social networking sights? I’ve experienced this phenomenon twice now.
The first time came 3&1/2 years ago after a woman I was with for over 7 years decided that she wanted to try a whole new direction in life after I finally admitted to myself and the world that I was an atheist. She just couldn’t see herself with an atheist even though she’d been with one the whole time and I’d raised her two kids. She announced her intention to move to another state and ended the relationship. After a few months of me trying to change her mind I found out that she had been seeing someone else on the side for several months (It was the Christian thing to do I guess), so I took that as the definitive nail in the coffin. I changed my MySpace status to single and she totally kirked out on me. Go figure.
Now, It all feels like deja vu. I’d been seeing a woman for three years and things seemed to be going well. She knew up front that I was non religious, but occasionally it still seemed to bother her. As she once explained it, she wants to connect with my soul, but how can she if I don’t believe I have one? Disregarding the fact that I’ve always thought that such a statement should be metaphorical, I pointed out that if I did have a soul whether or not I believed in it wouldn’t stop it from being. A few weeks ago she takes me to dinner and says out of the blue that she needs a break and that we should go to an open relationship and see other people to be sure that we are the correct fit. She said that she wasn’t saying that she didn’t want to be with me, but she wasn’t sure that she wanted to long term. She valued our friendship and thought that a 1 to 2 year break would be ideal. I told her that what she was describing wasn’t an open relationship if we weren’t going to be romantically involved. She reiterated that it was what she needed and there was no way to change her mind. She was going to try the single life for a while. Two days later I went into my Facebook and hid my relationship status. I didn’t even change it to single -I just hid it from public view. She saw that she was then listed among my friends and not as someone I was in a relationship with and kirked out. She dumped me.
I don’t get it.
