I'm Just Not That Into You - Day 2

Here's day two of my 30 day posting marathon. Today I'm going to talk about being with someone you are just not that into.

I've met many men over the years that I liked but was not really that into. They were nice enough in one way or another but for some reason just wasn't fitting the bill.

I remember one guy in particular. We had been dating for about 3 years. I had moments when I was into him but overall not so much. He was cool to hang out with and I think that's why I kept him around for as long as I did.

Toward the end of our relationship things were starting to get a little difficult though. I found that dealing with his jealousy was becoming more of an issue and sex was becoming unbearable. I had to do something. I would look at dude and wonder what in the world was I doing. Then his father got really sick and was terminal and I really couldn't drop him then. I can be mean but I'm not a cold hearted bitch.

We went on vacation to Hawaii and in the middle of our vacation his brother called him just to tell him that he was afraid for his father because he was looking a little worse for the wear. I was livid because after that phone call my BF was totally sad and preoccupied. You don't call someone and tell them crap like that while on vacation. I was livid. You couldn't wait until we got home to express your concern? Geesh!

We made the best of the remainder of the vacation and managed to have a good time. But clearly I couldn't drop him anytime soon. I was walking around everyday yelling "Give Us Free!"

So eventually months later I was able to cut ties and it was heart wrenching (for him) but we moved on and I was so glad I did it.

Now when I run into him in public he act as if he doesn't even know me. Oh well.

Bwahaha @ yelling "Give us free" everyday for the remainder of the vacation. Too funny! How petty of him to see you know and fail to even speak. Grow up dude, it's over.

I get that for sure. The last guy that I was with, ex Boo was finer than fine but I just didn't feel completely into him. For one, he lacked in being romantic and tender. He was polite and protective but didn't get my jokes and in fact, tended to be more "old man" in his thinking. It was either football or some detective show on tv and nothing in between.

I refused to settle and when the opportunity came, I took it.

Looking forward to tomorrow's post.

I totally can relate. I ended up breaking up with my bf and although it hurt like a bitch when he pretty much immediately shacked up with someone else, it was the best thing I did.

I've been single ever since, but I would rather be single for the rest of my life than to be with him.

And thank God, he moved back to the East Coast. We don't have to run into each other EVER.

Only guy I ever had something like that happen with was a trucker I went with for about 2 1/2 years or so. When he coughed up a small diamond ring is when my head really went spinning and about four months later, the relationship was history. I got the biggest set of cold feet you've ever seen when he gave me that ring. The really funny thing -to me anyway -is that about 6 weeks after I split up with him, he called to tell me he had just gotten married. Good luck with that relationship, ya know. Haven't seen or heard anything at all about him (or from him) in about 23-24 years now and I sure don't regret breaking things off either.
