A friend recently celebrated her news of not being single anymore. She followed this with a series of photos of happy dates with her handsome young man, holding hands, smooching, walking on the beach, hanging out at bars, walking the dog etc etc. Pictures of perfect domestic bliss. I felt happy for her. Everyone did.
Then, just as suddenly, the photos stopped coming. There was a short silence. And then this friend re-emerged. Only this time, it was a totally different story she was telling.
Apparently our two lovebirds had misunderstood the signals they’d been giving out. One evening over a romantic dinner She’d blurted out those three little words “I love you”.
The next morning He sent her a text saying “I don’t think we should see each other anymore”.
What makes a man run? What is it about the thought of commitment that gives him wings? I don’t think the fault lies in our hapless heroine. Whatever the case may be, He’s certainly proven by his cowardly actions that he doesn’t deserve her. Maybe we should say She had a lucky escape…if she’d continued down the path she was on with Him, no doubt she would have ended up being let down sooner or later, and the outcome would’ve still been the same. Better to nip it in the bud, or rather, better that the bud chose to fall off by itself.
I felt sorry for my friend, and I searched on Google Images to see what other people in the same boat as her thought. Turns out there are quite a few people who had been through similar disastrous relationships and break ups.
Here are some gems:
So girl, don’t sell yourself short. You deserve better than that sorry assed bozo. He’ll look back one day and kick himself for having let you go so easily, while he went chasing other skirts. Meanwhile, you just hold your head up high, girl, adjust your tiara and MOVE ON!
