Care to share what happend? If not, that's ok.
Where should I start...This is the short version:
It started with Christmas with him arriving 3 hours late. I told him we were eating at 1pm, but somehow, 1pm turned into 4pm. My family celebrates Christmas on the 24th and the actual day is usually spent visiting with friends or entertaining. This year, however, I ate alone. No problem I told myself because I wasn't going to let eating alone ruin my day. Anyway, he shows up at 4:00 and asked what there was to eat. I told him brunch was at 1pm so I didn't know what he was going to eat. Well, of course, I told him a bunch of other things that I can't repeat on this BB. He apologized a bunch of times and said he'd make it up to me, but at that point I wasn't in the mood to deal with him let alone stand the sight of him so I went to my sister's house.
Hadn't heard from him since the 25th so today he calls me to chit chat and to find out about New Year's Eve plans. We were supposed to go to a party my sister was throwing. I asked him if he and I were still going and he said, "I don't know. I have to see." ***** I took that to mean that he had to see if he got a better offer. Well, to make a long story short he just started acting like a complete a$$ threatening to hang up on me (mind you, he'll be 30 next month) and saying that he didn't want to be bothered right now because I was "annoying" him. He told me to call him tomorrow (Sunday) and we'd talk about it. At that point I was just totally over it and said, "Well, you're an a$$ today and tomorrow I'm sure you'll be an a$$ too so there's no point in calling you tomorrow. In fact, how about if I never call you again" I hung up before he could respond, but I'm sure in his callous way he would have just said, "ok". The whole thing was completely petty, but to me his whole attitude was just symbolic of something much deeper. Maybe I read too much into things, but he just had this attitude thing going on like he was doing me a favor by letting me breath the same air that he breathes. Whatever.
Anyway, I am not hurt because I know I have no one to blame but myself, but I just can't believe him. The whole time we were supposedly reconciling there was that nagging voice in the back of my mind that was whispering, "don't do it" and my best friend would get stone quiet whenever I mentioned his name, but I went ahead with it anyway.
You're right! I do go for the fixer upper guys. I seem to think they're okay in the beginning, but I soon find out otherwise. I think I'll swear off dating for a while.
