Short-Lived Romance

In an effort for my brain to avoid sleep it decided to bombard me with memories. I was pleasantly surprised by the following.

Our little romance was only short-lived – perhaps two weeks long? It was after I had dated an abuser, a guy who bored me, and another who had cheated on me. He was the first guy to give me a taste of what it was like to be treated well.

We went to school together, he lived just down the street from me, and we hardly knew each other. I have no idea how we began talking, but things progressed quickly.

I suppose we talked, then talked some more, and then some more. Before I knew it I was over at his house watching movies, playing with his two lovable dogs, becoming friends with his house-mates, and making out in his bed. I was only seventeen but still felt too young to go further than making out (a feeling I’m glad I listened to).

After a couple weeks he broke it off because he just simply didn’t have feelings for me anymore. At the time, I didn’t understand. Was there something wrong with me? I later came to realise it is something that just happens, sometimes the feeling just disappears for no apparent reason.

Before I realised this, I was feeling pretty devastated. We hung out at a party a couple weeks later and somehow found ourselves making out once again. It was odd. Not the making out, but the feeling after. I knew it was a no-strings-attached kind of deal, and it almost gave me closure?

Anyway! Fast forward almost three years. He has now been with the loveliest of girls for two years, and I have been with the most wonderful guy for a year and a half.

What got me thinking last night in bed is I know nothing about this guy anymore. This isn’t an issue for me, I actually find it rather beautiful. We were so close and similar, yet now we are living completely different lives and almost seem a world apart. He has moved out with his girlfriend, they are both working full-time and have created a lovely little family (their babies being two dogs and a cat), while here I am, studying full time, working casually, and living 40 minutes from my boyfriends house.

I cant be the only one who finds it amazing that two people who were once so close chose different paths which has led them in completely opposite directions?

SOLD! Seems like I had everything go against me with these drawers - like being given the wrong paint colour and being assured it will "dry on darker". Swipe for a before and during photo. Very happy with the final result but am glad to be rid of them! #refurbishedfurniture #adelaide
