That’s from the Harry Nilsson song, Without You, recorded in 1972. Today is one of my former girlfriend’s birthday. Why mention this? Hey, I have had my share like all male homo sapiens I guess, and like some of you, with a breakup, at times I was bummed. And after the breakup with Emma, I took it pretty hard. I am not ashamed to say that. I was depressed and felt like crap. And like an idiot, I spent my time listening to all kinds of sad breakup songs on the internet, and obsessed with one, that song. Here are a few lyrics – No, I can’t forget this evening, On your face as you were leaving, But I guess that’s just the way the story goes. It was a tough deal.
But after acting like a moron for damn, maybe a whole month, I finally got over it, not completely after a month, but enough to know I was stupid for acting that way and that I was so much better off. I mean, hey, the girl was a bitch. Now I am not saying that because of what happened, but because she was, really. She was controlling, wouldn’t shut the hell up, had this terrible habit of picking her teeth a lot, and my family and friends hated her. I don’t necessarily think anyone, even my family and friends should have veto power on who I choose to date, but I don’t think anyone I knew who knew her, liked her, and that should have been a signal to me.
So after that month and when I finally came out of the fog, I started looking around and dating again. And it wasn’t long at all before I found someone. Or should I say ‘someones,’ plural, lol. I had been in this stagnant relationship for nearly 2 years and after the first few months it wasn’t so much fun anymore, just you know, a relationship. Well, I joined some sites and met some ladies, and then I got the best kind of job I could get – working for a company that looks at and reviews sites. I became an expert in this dating thing, if I may say so myself, and at the same time, I started really enjoying myself. And damn, life is too short, so why be miserable. Be happy, right?
So my advice to anyone reading this is, if you get screwed by your girlfriend or boyfriend or whoever, get over it. You are probably better off. Move on, join some personals sites like you see here on this review site, and start enjoying yourself. Move on, there really is a happier life out there for you. All you have to do is go get it. And today, with the internet, it’s easy.
