The guy is pretty youthful looking, and the clues were all there, in the form of junk food, but it made him laugh.
This got me thinking about being dumped. It has happened to me in many different varieties.
Twenty-four years ago I was engaged to a great young man that had changed my life. We loved each other. We were happy. But he realized he needed more life experience, and I was not quite filling that bill. It was tough. I cried a lot. I questioned my now-open future. Then, 6 weeks later, I met Geo. I am crazy in love with him.
About 5 years ago I was dumped by a close friend. Personal healing on her part made it impossible to retain our friendship. I was somehow a glaring light on some of the things she was struggling with. I was in the way of her progress. After a few years of distance we are now reacquainted, and it is at a good pace. I have deep feelings for her.
Sometimes I even dump myself. When I don't get to bed on time. When I don't take enough time to meditate. When I don't listen to myself. When I don't read enough. When I don't exercise enough. When I don't sing enough. When I don't hug enough. When I don't cry enough. When I don't laugh enough.
Being dumped can be a great cause for reflection and circumspection.
So I now ask myself, Can we get back together? I miss you.
