You Belong To Me

They say careful what you wish for cuz you just might get it.  Well I didn't wish it,  but I was bitchin' about it.

 

Thursday I got a call from Gerry letting me know he would be here for the wknd.  He said we had a lot to discuss.  Mainly why we should remain together.  That is a good question--Why should we remain together?

 

He hasn't convinced me yet.  Driving through a blizzard to get to me doesn't earn him points either.  He has 20 more hours to make me see his side.  I'm not playing hard to get either.  

 

His begging is flattering, but my mind goes to 'why would this man want me this bad.'  I am still the same person I was when he told me I was not the type of girl guys drop everything for.  I know what was meant---he implied I was only good for one thing.  And now he expects me to believe that he wants me forever??

 

Yeah, right. Keep talking...

    I know what was meant

    Damn when will women (& men) learn that they speak in 2 different languages because they think so totally different. For God sake don’t assume that you know what someone that’s a different sex meant by a comment.
    Break up or stay with the guy, that’s totally up to you. But don’t do either because you “assume” that you know what a comment meant that could have meant something totally different.

    As for his comment it certainly seems odd to me & not flattering. If I were a girl & a guy said that to me I would ask him exactly what he meant by it……No wait, I wouldn’t, I would be upset, put my own meaning to it, & then react to the meaning that I put on it, exactly what you have done. If a woman had said it to me I would have said “What do you mean by that” & let her explain.

    The truth is that guys often put their feet in their mouth. They get nervous talking to girls. Their minds are going 1,000 miles per minute & their mouths go 100 miles a minute & often the first sentence of a paragraph comes out & the rest of the paragraph gets skipped. Why does that happen? My best guess is that it’s either a form of mental panic or maybe a built it form of population control. Either way (or for whatever other reason) it does happen, I know because it’s happened to me. (& yes even I knew how stupid I sounded but I kept right on talking, panic does that to you).

    It would for me. No I might not take them back but endangering their lives, financial future (wreck that car & maybe them) & making the effort would sure enough earn some brownie points from me. I would at least plan to hear them out with an open mind & then do what I thought was best.
    .
    Just my thoughts & I’m a guy so they may not make sense to you & you may not agree with them. But they are worth what you paid for them (nothing).

      I’ve got to add a honest to God true story. My ex once accused me of cheating on her. What came out of my mouth in reply, well, even to me it sounded like a lie. I stammered, stuttered, & basically acted in every way like I was making up a story. Hell even I wouldn’t have believed me from what I said. That’s because I didn’t expect it, hadn’t cheated, had never thought about cheating, in other words I was total 100% innocent & wasn’t prepared to be accused of cheating. Had I done what she accused me of I would have had a story made up before hand with what would have sounded like facts to prove that I didn’t do it. After 4 (f******) hours of trying to defend myself about something that I didn’t do I finally gave & said “Yes I did it”. As a matter of fact I not only did it but I’m guilty of every single thing that you think I might have done & even more. Every girl you think I’ve slept with, I did plus her sister. I’m guilty of all of it. Now I’m going to sleep (why in the hell do some women only like to argue during prime sleeping hours?). Thirty minutes later she WOKE ME UP to say that she believed me (WTF?). Woman’s logic, he said that he didn’t do it so he must be guilty. Then he said he did do it so he must be innocent. So the final outcome was that she forgave me for something that I didn’t do & I got 3 hours of sleep & then had to go to work. So in the end she was kind of right, I did get screwed by a woman, her!

        This sounds like something I’d do.

      He’s not young, foot in mouth disease surely doesn’t happen to old guys.

      That comment that I bring up often enough—he’s apologized many times for it. But you know what, a thousand apologies doesn’t doesn’t undo what was said. He said it. And I think only another guy would suggest that there might have been another explanation for those words. Any woman reading this would know he was basically calling me a whore and most of those women would probably not even have him around after that.

      I’m not even sure what magical words I need to hear from him to take him back. I just know at this point I haven’t heard them.

        First off, I’m an old guy (I’m probably 30 years older than him) & happily married & every now & then my wife takes something that I say wrong. It happens. Second I didn’t get that he called you a whore AT ALL. Maybe other women would get it but I sure didn’t. Did it come across as not a good comment, yes it did.
        Maybe it sounded like that to you because you know what was said before & after the comment & I didn’t hear either the words or the tone. Anyway it’s all up to you & what I say doesn’t really matter. I was just adding my 2 cents in.
