Just like High School

So, mutual friend pulls me away from my facinating filing duties today to tell me something very exciting. I asked if I won the lottery, but she said no.

Apparently, Handsome Richard (the OTHER Handsome Richard, Rich) thinks I am just IT. But doesn't think he is of my caliber so he doesn't approach me. (My reply? I wander around tripping over my own feet and talking about farts, how can anyone not be of my caliber??)

Yes, he still has a girlfriend (they are breaking up) and yes, she is still pregnant.

What will I do about it? nothing. This is a man who leaves the room when I enter it because he is too shy to be around me. I am flattered and excited, but I have to refer back to my original feeling, "How am I supposed to get to know someone who won't talk to me?"

He asked mutual friend if he should approach me and suggested that perhaps he could do it at her wedding. (which she has told me about but not really invited me to. It'll be in Vegas. I love Vegas!) Her wedding is in August. It's April. yeah. He even asked if she thought I would bring a date. (um, based on current statisitics, the answer is no). Seems to me like August is really far away when you are as interested in someone as he professes to be with me.

In fact, when my ex comes on TV (yes, I have an ex who is sometimes on TV. I don't mention it very much because I say other stuff about that ex that is private) HR changes the channel. I think that's funny. But how would he react to my continued friendship with T, C, and D? Granted, if I had a boyfriend, the R rated conversations between T and I would end, but regardless, I still want his friendship, even though it is painful sometimes. But it would be less painful if I had someone else to ponder.

I don't know. I just thought I would share. Gotta go, Harbucks is calling and since I haven't eaten anything yet today (gobstoppers don't count) I need to make sure i have plenty of time to heat up a corn dog.

I think you ought to make a srtong move on him. Don't worry about what approach to use. Just do it. What have you got to lose?

GM, ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?

The guy is breaking up with a woman who is carrying his child. There is all kinds of baggage with that.

First, when the baby is born, it will get his attention, either willingly or forced by an angry vengeful ex and the law.

Second, you will feel a tinge of jealousy because the guy you are with cannot give you his full attention.

Third, and most importantly, this guy is a sperm donor and should be embarassed to even show his face in public. Actually, he is scum. Dating a slug would be above his level. Just because he is handsome on the outside does not make up for the disgusting vileness of his insides.

It does not matter how bad things are with his current girlfriend, short of unjustified threatened physical violent from her to him, a man of character would stay with her.

Come on, woman! You are worth more than you give yourself credit for. Wait for Mr. Right, not Mr. Right Now.

Oddly, I disagree with Sensei (note the sarcasm :) )

Anyway...sometimes people find themselves in situations where things happen. And staying together for the sake of children is NOT a good thing for anyone involved. If you see a possibility with him, you should explore it, Gina.

sensei ern: How do you REALLY feel? DON'T HOLD BACK!


Sensei Ern said...

Yeah, I did get upset at this.

Calling someone I don't know scum may be a little irrational.

I had just heard some incredible statistics about children growing up in broken homes. It pushed me wrong, at the wrong time.

Still, although many in this circle take sexual interaction lightly, I don't. Making the choice to have sex that potentially can create a child, before determining that your partner is not someone you will spend the rest of your life with is just stupid.

Of course people can change and become unbearable. Also, some people appear to be something they are not.

But, to break up with someone in less than nine months, there isn't enough time to even get to know anything about them.

The guy knocked up a woman and then left her. It is dumb to expect he won't do that again.

Of course, GM could cast a spell that causes his whacker to shrivel up and fall off, but she is sworn to do no harm...of course that is subjective as it would be good to prevent him from doing it to anyone else.

Yeah, these male sluts do make me angry because they feel no responsibility for the life they have created. Not that HR is a male slut, but as they say, "if the condom fits, wear it."

Ginamonster said...

Hee hee, Sensei, you have such passion about things.

I consider a broken family one that doesn't work properly. My family was broken-er when my dads were around. Than it was when my mom was single and raising us.

I would rather see a child with two loving households than one loveless one.

Seen both, lived both. like the first option.

Love to you all.

Sensei Ern said...

I agree, I just don't want to see you having to repair your own broken family.

Gina B said...

Just because parents cannot be "together" does not mean it is a broken home.

When Mike and I seperated, even with everything else that was exploading and going wrong, the kids had two loving homes to go to, and loved every second of it.

Ginamonster...I have to tell you though....a man with this kind of, no run fast.

The last 3 years of my life have been wrapped up in another man's baggage. I wish I had listened at the time to good advice.

Ginamonster said...

Sensei: Neither do I.

Gina: Yeah. I hear you loud and clear.
