Today wasn’t a good day. Edith called it quits and left my heart shattered in a million irreparable pieces. She said that she wasn’t ready for a serious relationship just yet but I think there’s more to the story.

How could we be going steady for a good while and then, out of the blue, she decides it’s no longer working? Guys, I gave her everything. We wined, dined and live extravagantly together. Every time she called, I answered. When she had car trouble, it was me who got out of my bed at three o’clock in the morning to stand by her side on the side of the highway. I didn’t even need to be there since she has roadside assistance but wanted to calm her nerves that were in disarray as a result of a wrench literally being thrown in the road. And how does she repay me? With a breakup!

I curse the day that I ever met the nurse who works at the local hospital. She placed all of the blame for her failed marriage on her ex-husband and, like a fool, I believed her. How could Edith do this to me? Here I was thinking that our love would last, and she was only looking for a way out. Everything is all good, though. I know what I will do moving forward.

From here on out, I will focus on my job as a developer and stick close to my good friends. Jerrod and Lisa have never betrayed me and they love me for who I am. To think that I spent thousands on a girl who claimed not to be materialistic. Everyone knows that I’m a saver! Edith claimed to dislike shopping but I couldn’t keep her out of boutiques. She said that she hated liars. How could you despise a characteristic that you exhibit best? I don’t even want to talk about it anymore.
There are plenty of fish in the pool who deserve my love. Lisa just doesn’t know how good she had it! Still, I won’t lie, if she came to my flat today and apologized for everything I’d take her back in a heartbeat. What is wrong with me? Am I in love or am I just a fool?
