Public announcement

I've never had my heart broken. Ever. And believe me ; I've went out or slept with way more people than I am willing to admit. But I am generally attracted to weirdos ... Crude and rude men... Artists with a very bad boy vibe... That definitely fulfill my needs for adventure and my needs to "save". But after a couple of weeks (or months, ahem...) I usually get my good senses back and run far, far away from them.

I was recently discussing the state of my love life with a good friend when he came to an abrupt conclusion : I will not find a truly good guy and settle until I get my heart broken. I've been cursed.


Will somebody please volunteer to be my boyfriend for the next couple of weeks and dump me ?
That might do the trick !

Please ??

I'm not sure I am appropriate boyfriend material. Not that I'm married - I'm not. Or that I have a girlfriend, I don't. And I'm not gay either - not that there's anything wrong with that!

I'm just not into gratuitous dumping - even for a good cause, sorry.

Michele sent me,

Um, I think you should try something else. It's not the dumping that makes you find someone better. It's the acceptance of who you are and not settling for anything less than the best. I have had my heart broken and wouldn't recommend it. Happily, I can say that I've also been married for 23 years. Good luck with the love life!

Michele sent me!

Some lessons just have to be learned the hard way, I guess. Good luck with the dumping?

Hi from Michele's.

I'm actually quite experienced in that capacity. Interesting theory.... I think I was about 10 and 1.

Here via Michele today.

Claire said...

I've been very similar to you, I've had my heart broken though...and still no boyfriend who sticks around so I disprove your friends theory!

When/if I find the cure I'll let you know!!

Here from Michele's! Good luck!

My worst heartbreak came when I wasn't expecting it. I was dating this guy and thought about dumping him, but he beat me to it. I was so shocked, I was down for the count for a week. Heartbreak just makes me wary. I don't know that it teaches much.

My first thought as I read your blod title was...Is there such a thing as "JUST A TRUMPET PLAYER"...I am sure that you have a a great gift for music.

As for your post...

What happened with me is that I broke my own heart. I didnt even know I could do that!

I was so disappointed in myself. I was in a place that my poor decisions had put me. I had let all the riff-raff into my life....and they decided to camp there for an indefinite amount of time.

I decided to refuse to go down the same road I aways had...which was straight to a relationship that was NO GOOD.

I don't think getting dumped is going to lead to meeting a great guy & settling down, after all, in order to break your heart the dumper has to be a great guy & capture your heart in the first place. The law of averages suggests it could be difficult to locate 2 great guys consecutively. Not that I'd know, all the great guys I've ever met were either married, gay or 'just friends'
Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

Anna said...

OK, I just posted here fot the first time and then went to Micheles and you had commented right above me! That is funny. Again...I like you blog and

HELLO! Have a great week!

Andrea said...

Honest. You dont want to be dumped. It stinks.

I'm trying to snag our local oldies radio station's morning far, I'm doing a lousy job of attracting his attention. :(

craziequeen said...

ah sweetie, this is not the way to go about this.

Sooner or later you will meet your man (I am reluctant to refer to him as 'Mr Right'), and you will be incredibly happy, if only for a set amount of time. Nothing is forever.....and you might well be the one to dump him!

I can't help, honey - this Queen is female....

Michele sent me to say hi - and thanks for the lovely comment :-)
