I bet you can’t guess what I’ve been up to…or have you already?
I fell for a douchebag.
I thought I was finally done dating douchebags and then this guy turned out to be just as bad as the others so I think I’m due for some venting.
What did I learn with the most recent douchebag?
Don’t even think about mentioning you like them. That’s where I went wrong. I showed my hand, you guys.
I told him I might have caught feelings and because of that I didn’t really want to talk anymore because…commitment issues.
Anyways, this is where it all started to crumble.
And I know what you’re thinking, “wait, you ended it. Why are you upset it ended?”
Well, because, uhh, I don’t really know. What I do know is that the second I told him I had actual feelings, he jumped off the train immediately.
Before, he was clearly the one who was more into it than I was and then BAM he got to be Beyonce and I was the backup dancer.
I have nothing against backup dancers but they just don’t wear the pants in the relationship, which is also true with most backup dancers on stage. (I’m feeling funny right now, guys)
Anyways, the biggest lesson I learned was to not, under any circumstances, be the first one to tell the other person you have feelings. The second they hear that or see that coming, they’re heading for the hills – even if they actually like you.
The thought of a girl actually liking a guy instantly triggers the idea of, “commitment.”
To a guy, commitment means three things:
- NO MORE FREEDOM
- NO MORE FUN
- NO MORE FRIENDS
Of course, we know commitment doesn’t mean those things but that’s just the way guys think. The sooner we learn this, the sooner we can trick them into saying they have feelings first and then deciding if we want to move forward or not but that sounds like a topic for the next blog post…
Happy to be back! Thanks for being here!
