into american idol, no appeal to me

him: it’s actually pretty stupid

him: i’m just killing my pain away

him: i just got out of relationship

me: was the spilt good?

him: i guess so

him: does not talking to the other a

good split?

me: well, it depends

him: his mother drove me away

me: but sometimes it takes time to

get back to even the friendship place

him: he was closeted and his mother

thought i was driving him to the devil

me: lol, his mother…sounds like a

straight person’s problem

him: so i think his mother broke up

with me and not him

me: lol

him: who knows, who cares

me: well, then what’s to say he wont

come back

him: he acts like he still sucks her teat

me: i was dating someone who was

not out to his family…i had to break it off in

the end because I really couldnt deal with

just being a friend if I met his parents

him: yeah

him: i once broke up with someone for

sucking on my toes

me: o did you!

me: lol

him: i was like, “no ma’am!”

him: broke up with him the next day

me: “the” ex tried to do that to me…i

freaked out. i have feet issues

him: lol

him: so how’s the dating life or r u

dating?

me: dating life

me: well, i try to meet people

me: i dont know what is going on

right now

him: with what?

me: lol, with me

him: u or the community at large?

him: ah

me: well, see this past summer I

was seeing this great guy and then he

went to france for six months, but I dont know

what we are…if we are

him: ah…the ambiguous relationship

him: been there done that

me: then while he was gone I was

“dating” this really nice guy, but I wasnt

trying to commit and i think he was upset

because I wasnt giving him direction as to

what I wanted from us

him: interesting

him: so you’re torn?

me: i couldnt commit, i didnt know

what was going on with the guy in france

me: no, i WAS torn

me: i am not anymore…

him: ah

me: since the guy i was “dating” was

upset we just stopped talking

him: well question…did he stop

talking or did you stop talking?

him: or both?

me: well, we talked about what was

going on, then I took time to think about

something he asked me…then we talked,

then we stopped talking, i think more so

on my part the last time than his.

him: but you had a sense of closure?

me: what I got/read was that he was

upset with me and really didnt seem like

he wanted to be engaged in any form of

relationship (using the term in the broad

sense).

me: and maybe i read it wrong, but

maybe it was/is better this way

him: yeah…how long did it last?

me: LOL, too much stuff here!

him: well i appreciate your candidness

😉

me: well, when people ask direct

questions, i try to answer them

me: i think we started seeing each

other in like aug and then kinda came to a

halt in dec

him: do u consider that long?

me: no, i consider it the beginning of

something…the time you take to get to

know someone

me: but that is me…

him: good point

him: i dated someone for about 5

months and we fell in love FAST!

him: and then sadly we fell out of love

even FASTER!

him: that’s what i get for dating a

younger guy!

me: lol, yes, that is what I say, but

that is all i keep ending up with

him: younger guys?

me: yeah

him: alright dude…i’m outta here

him: peace out

him: it was pleasant to chat with u

me: same here, enjoy the show!

him: again, sorry about your brother in

law

me: that’ really nice of you, thanks 🙂
