In other news, I have discovered my ex is a commitmentphobe who displays nearly every classic textbook symptom. Lucky for me, there are lots of women who have been put through the same ringer I was, and I have made a new friend! One poor woman was with a guy 7 years and they broke up 15 times. And I thought I was a dumbass. My dad called today and though he has only met the fool 10 times at most, proclaimed him a nice feller. Umm. Ok you can date him! *rolls eyes*
I had a nice compliment today from another friend who told me she loved my stories so much that I really should consider writing a novel. I am seriously considering it. It would be semi-autobiographical and humorous of course. Names would be changed to protect the guilty. I will keep you posted.
