Losing Weight; Finding Men

"Never make someone a priority in your life when you are just their option."

morning weight: h-e-a-v-y

Move over Kathy Griffin.

I've been d-listed, de-valued, de-friended.

Somehow I don't feel too shaken up about it.

Mr Listener (I can only hope he somehow found this blog because he was so bloody curious about the fact that I wouldn't share it with him), has removed himself from the structure that is my life.

Mr Loco, Mr Luuuuuser, Mr Lucky-I-Don't-Have-To-See-Him-Anymore. Mr-Only-Friend-in-Jersey.


I guess he did all that listening at the beginning so he could store up pieces of information to hurl at me when it was time to pick a fight. He seems to relish poking and prodding like a true stinging Scorpion; he told me several times about his biting email exchanges with his "stupid" ex-wife. Hmmm, noted.

Five hours after an evening watching a movie at my house, he emailed me a long detailed "dressing down" email to say that I have been cold and manipulative to him, increasingly so apparently, over the past weeks since we "agreed" to just be friends. This is particularly interesting as just a few days ago he'd commented on how less sensitive I've been and how refreshing it was.

Make up your mind asshole.

He listed 3 examples from our last evening together, including miscommunication over a phone takeout order, what movie we were going to watch, and how I demanded he handle my dog a certain way when playing.

In addition, he claims I was "constantly beating around the bush" on conversations meanwhile "expecting him to jump thru hoops" for me. OK drama boy.

And then he concluded that he was "withdrawing his offer of friendship."


Wow. I admit I'm not an "easy keeper" but....wow.

I appreciate honesty. Really. But waiting weeks for the right moment to sting me? That's not honesty. That's coiled up and waiting. And withdrawing his friendship like it was an application to medical school or a special club? Pffft. He couldn't get into the upper chambers of my heart.

My initial, visceral reaction?

Kotex his car.

1. Buy several packages of Kotex.
2. Go to his car.
3. Unpeel each pad.
4. Stick the pads all over the outside of his car.

Because clearly, ManBearPig is on the rag and needs to have a good cry.


(And no...I have no intention of feeding into his provoked ego-driven BS with an actual response.)

Note: I don't like breaking up the 60 minutes. I just get warmed up and hitting stride at 30 minutes. But I guess I will just get used to it again, because it is better to split the cardio on the nights I'm going to do the weights.

If you want to know the truth, he sounds like a GIRL to me. I think he needs some Midol!


PS The Kotex idea is brilliant.

Sarah said...

Wow. He's got serious control issues. First he wanted you and then when you started wanting him (and wanting him to actually make a fucking move because he was standing still!) he says he just wants to be friends. Then when you are friends and you don't behave EXACTLY they way he wants you to, he withdraws his friendship offer? He never wanted friendship. He wanted someone to control and to manipulate. And he succeeded for a while. No more. Done!

OMG! I just laughed SO loud! :-) I LOVE the Kotex idea. Sounds like exactly what he needs.... NEXT!!

Hi there! I'm just catching up on my fav blogs.

OMG! I can't believe that crap that Mr. L laid on you...what an AssHole with a capital A! I'm glad you are seeing him for who he truly is, and that he is the one with the problem, not you!

As for the Kotex idea...I'd suggest that NEW ones are too good for him...if you get my drift.

I still have faith that the right guy will come along...too bad you have to kiss a few froggy creeps along the way. You've definitely had more than your share of those unappealing types lately.

you're like butter to me

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
