I’m getting ready. I figured some things out and I feel like this new shift that all of us are supposed to have is happening for me as well. It’s like emergence. As there are no coincidences, it is fitting that I had the worse part of a mild flu last night and ran a high, shaking fever.
Everyone has patterns. So does my ex. She tends to be a grass is always greener kind of person, and that is where she and drunk are the same. What she does is she is with someone and misses stuff about her most recent ex. She used to miss sex with her ex who she had raised her other children with, and last Friday night she told me how she missed her most recent ex (besides me) because of the way she smelled and was such a woman in terms of having candles lit when she got home, etc. I felt like saying, “Sorry it was always just dinner when we were together,” but instead when she was going on and on about her, I said, “Candles lit, looked beautiful, and dinner made?” She said no that I was the only woman who ever cooked for her. But, because she is now in her pattern of missing her ex, she remembers all the good qualities that I don’t have. I can tell you that I’d rather have great, passionate sex!
The drunk was not exclusive with me until she moved six states away. That is grass is always greener for her too. She missed me and realized that she was in love with me when she and I went away to NM together for a weekend, but she was moving to the east coast in a month, so it was bad timing. She didn’t tell me that she loved me either until I had flown to see her once, and she had just made love to me after she had come for a trip and visit. At that point, the drunk had flown to visit my son and I about a month after I had visited her back east, and then she professed her love after we had a our first night together. Although, I did love her, I was never in love with her. I was slowly realizing that she had a problem with alcohol; honestly she loved the bottle way more than my son for sure. And I was a distant third.
My ex loves money. She says all the time that she is not materialistic, but she is. She hoards material things because she fears an early death and her beautiful little boy being without as she was. That I do get. I don’t want my son to feel poor. I work around the clock because of that issue of mine too. She and I both had periods in our childhoods with periods of significant poverty. My son has never known eating shitty food or living somewhere unsavory. Her son will never know these things either. So, in that way, we are driven by the same fear.
Grass is always greener and driven by desire for more. Me? I just want to find a sexy, bright woman who wants a resolution with me because she knows that I’m worth it. I’m the one that she wants to build a future with and doesn’t make her feel any longing. I’ll know when I meet her, and want to start off with let’s figure out what we both do in conflict and talk about it while we honeymoon. She and I can figure it out… Together.
