So as of Friday night, I am a single girl. I'd been dating D for about 10 months before he freaked out about making our commitment a wee bit more serious. After a month off from each other (his idea, not mine) we parted ways. It was as mutual a breakup at any breakup could be, and ultimately it was the right decision. We clearly weren't on the same page about where we wanted the relationship to go, and I think everyone can agree that moving forward in a relationship when you're not on the same page with each other is a recipe for disaster.
That doesn't make the breakup any easier, though.
Well, okay, maybe a little. I mean, I did have a month away from him to realize that yes, I will be okay. I'm strong, and I'm young, and a New Year is right around the corner. But hot damn it's taking a lot of effort to do ANYTHING these few days immediately after. I'm happy I still have one more weekend day, today, before heading back to work. It's been a long time since I've had to deal with a breakup, and I forgot how draining those first few days can be. Geezalou. I'm happy I have caffeinated coffee. And wine. (But not together. Eww.) I think I'm going to need a few more minutes in the morning tomorrow to get myself ready to head to work. And way more coffee. Maybe I'll just make a pot at the office.
No, I can't do that. Everyone else will drink it.
I think I'm coping okay. I'm getting out of the house, if only for small amounts of time. I'm making plans. I'm listening to Cee-Lo's "Fuck You" over and over. (Side Note - how awesome is this song?) If any of you have suggestions on other fun ways to get over someone, send them my way. I'm sure I can put them to good use.
Thanks and love,
