I swear, I know guys that either have been or are cheating on girls, girls that either have been or are cheating on guys, girls with guys that won't quit hounding them, and guys with unwanted girls claiming to be their girlfriend (much to the guy's chagrin). I've seen one guy who was hanging out with a platonic friend of the opposite sex, and the girl he actually did like and wanted to hit on caught them and thought they were an item. I've seen girls ho themselves out to one guy after the next, just looking for someone after a break up - doesn't matter who. I know underage couples that are about to have a baby. Plenty of love
And the worst part of it, I think, is seeing how drastically someone can change as a result of these curent/former problems. Folks that were once respectable are now raving lunatics. People who were once honest are lying and scheming to "get back" at the other side. Folks that once loved each other are at each other's throats like guard dogs. Broken hearts can turn even good people bad, if only for a short while. ::shrugs::
(Don't freak out, even if a few of the things abive might apply to you. I'm not talking about any one person in particular. Not pointing any fingers at anyone, but the more of these that do apply to you the more you need to really pause and think about where you are and what you're doing.)
Oy. Makes me damn glad to be single. I think I'm the one and only person I know that isn't in the middle of some sort of relationship crisis. Haven't heard anything from my ex or her friends and family for the past several months, and haven't said anything about her in nearly as long. Don't intend to, either. Meh. I swear, the older I get, the less I understand about these sorts of things. All I know is two cute college coeds were making eyes at me in IHOP tonight. Yeah, I couldn't be happier to be single right now. ::smirks::
I know V-day is coming up real soon. Hard not to think about it when every department store has been done up in hearts and cherubs since New Year's. And I know it's harsh on those of you that are single at the moment, whether it's because you haven't met the right person or if it's because of a recent breakup. But try to look at the bright side instead of letting the sight of pink sugar hearts break your real one. Sometimes it's good to be single, so enjoy it while you can.
And if you're one of the unlucky ones that currently are in a fight? Know yourself - that's the best piece of advice I can give you. No matter how stressful your particular situation might be, don't let it change who you are.
(Not goting to say more than that in a public forum, for the fear that someone may mistakenly think I'm talking about them when in actuality I was referring to another couple. But I do sincerely hope for the best in all of your individual situations, and I'll keep all of you in my prayers.)
