Hello Ladies (and Gentlemen)!
Avalon asked me to post on here today so here goes…
I recently got out of a very intense but short relationship- 9.5 weeks- pun intended.
Yes, she’s a dancer, and no, I’m not telling where or any identifying details. If you take anything away from any relationship, you MUST take the LESSON you were supposed to learn, or you’re doomed to repeat it. I call it “Relationship Groundhog Day”- you know, like the movie with Bill Murray?
While our passion and connection were never in question, I kept thinking in the back of my mind that there were ever-increasing long term incompatibilities racking up. I appreciated the fact that she was so open and honest with me about her faults. You have to be if it’s going to work, right?
So the lesson I learned was to be more open and honest about my doubts and issue areas earlier on. If I had let my concerns be known earlier, the DRAMA that ensued would not have been so bad. I also learned that my lower floor for age difference was there for a reason and I violated it for the last time (sounds good on paper anyway).
So what was the drama? All was quiet for about 3 weeks, then let’s make this potentially long story a short one by saying out of the blue I got a very unflattering, immature Facebook posting that I caught within 30 seconds of it going onto my profile. Phew, right??
WRONG! Because several people posted responses to it, (my posting about Facebook’s incessant ads for singles) they all got a copy of this scathing email in their inboxes!! Not once, but twice before said ex-girlfriend-turned-scorned psycho posted it again before I could delete her out of my friends! So my mom, my sister, and my aunt, among others- got to read all of the drama. Now I have to do triage with all of them. Thanks, Facebook, and thanks drama queen.
Dancers are regular people before they are dancers, and we all have feelings. I just need to do a better job of stating my concerns earlier and defusing drama. True, with some people it doesn’t matter what you do because they thrive on the dramatic, but I saw it coming! Fool me once…I learned my lesson!
