I’ve bounced back and forth on this issue a bit. When things fell apart with the last guy, I felt like I had to hurry up and get over it because he had warned that it was most likely going to be temporary, but I had hoped that he could be swayed because of how he seemed to feel about me.
I had promised him that it wouldn’t bother me if it was temporary, and on some level it didn’t. It was the end of an experience, and thus end of story.
On the other hand, he didn’t respect or understand or even care about how I felt about the situation. He couldn’t see it from my point of view and let me know rather quickly that my point of view was completely irrelevant to his life, or at the least to his decision making process. Because that has been a regular theme in my relationships with men, it became something I fixated on, and thus what could have been a relatively quick ending was dragged out for me emotionally.
We won’t even get into the physical loss that was attached to the whole mess…
When a friend of mine posted something on Facebook that felt a little too close to home, it made me realize a few things:

What Women Want seems to be the theme for this year’s International Woman’s Day. I’m assuming they’re not looking for the same type of thing as what was in that somewhat cheesy Mel Gibson movie from years back, but something slightly more substantial.

Today (or yesterday, depending on your tradition) is Imbolc, a Celtic Pagan holiday celebrating the sun’s return and the last of the snow. I’m fairly certain our (as in American) holiday of Groundhog’s Day comes from this holiday. Well, from the Christian appropriation of this holiday.
Christians took this holiday and called it Candlemas, and from there, they came up with a handy little poem to help determine the weather:
“If Candlemas Day be fair & bright Winter will have another flight But if Candlemas Day be clouds & rain Winter is gone & will not come again.”
The U.S. translated that into if a rodent in Philadelphia sees his shadow, we have, what is it, 6 more weeks of winter.

At some point it was decided that going to a movie was a bad idea for a date (especially a first date). With sites like HowAboutWe.com putting an emphasis on being creative with your dates, the simple “dinner and a movie” date seems a bit old fashioned.
But it doesn’t have to be.
And if you’re going to enjoy a movie as part of your date, then Jurassic World is a pretty good choice… if you do it right.

I love it when my faith in synchronistic events is reinforced. After the latest posts, this comic showed up in my Facebook newsfeed. It pretty much sums up my feelings on the correspondences with a certain someone, which finally seem to have stopped.
You can find this comic where I found it on Geek x Girls, or you can find it on it’s original site, Fudge that Sugar.
