I was sitting at the diner this morning and I over heard a conversation that I had to listen too. I was quite irritated by the guy that sat behind me. I was looking thru the menu and I heard him talking to someone and I didn’t want to be rude and look back. He started off by saying how upset he was with his girlfriend. That they had gone out (didn’t say where probably a bar or a club because he sounded young) and that this other girl was hitting on him and has been for weeks before. She gave him his number and his girlfriend saw. Not only did she see them exchange numbers but she must have seen that this girl had texted him when they had got home from the bar/club. She flipped out, I don’t blame her. He was telling the person he was with how she was saying how disrespectful it was and how hurt she was. She was 100% right for being so upet. This moron then proceeded to say terrible things about her. So they must have fought about it for a few days. She must have left his sorry ass and thats why he was at the diner at 10 am on a snow day. So I looked back and he had to be around 22, 23. He was talking to a younger girl and Im guessing he was with his sister. He was saying that the girlfriend was saying “I feel like an idiot for even staying here with you, you don’t even have sex with me.” In the back of my mind I feel as if this wasn’t the first time. She knew what he was about. I listened to all his excuses. How she was always annoying him, and hasn’t been around because he was working so much. He said he didn’t have sex with her because she was a disgusting slob and wasn’t attracted to her. I wanted to turn around and just say you know she did the right thing by leaving your sorry ass, and your just mad because you got caught. He also was complaining about paying child support, and I am not sure if it was to her or another girl.
The reason I am writing this is because I recently had broken up with someone after 12 years on and off. I turned 30 a few weeks ago and decided I wasn’t going to live my life upset and i was determined to be happy. Lets just say it wasn’t a good relationship and I am sorry I dealt with it for so long. I guess since it was so recent and I am still heartbroken. Ive been hearing so many stories just like the one I heard at the diner. At work, from friends and over hearing others peoples stories of heartache. My parents have been married for 33 years and they have their fair share of fights but not disrespectful or hurtful in anyway. I don’t think I’ve ever seen them fight, bicker, yes and then laugh about it. It makes me so sad that people treat others this way and I feel as if its so hard to find someone I am compatible with. Ive been home and depressed and I’ve been watching a lot of Audrey Hepurn and Marilyn Monroe movies and it seems so simple and times have changed so much. Today things are more difficult then they are easy.
