So this weekend has been a quiet weekend. After the drama of the other night it was much needed. He passed the "test," but I'm still restless because of the timing issue. I think its time for nicknames since 3 other will be mentioned in this post...so I'll call HIM "Mr. Perfect." And Mr. Perfect he is...except for that whole timing issue (that will hopefully be taken care of in July).
While I wait on Mr. Perfect to get his shit together, enter Big-X. Big-X broke my heart after a 3 year rollercoaster of a relationship that he chose to end [what seemed like out of the blue at the time] THE DAY WE STARTED BAR EXAM STUDYING. I was successful in cutting him completely out of my life until last November when he mistakenly heard I was shopping for a wedding dress and panicked. Now, despite his girlfriend of two years, I hear from him almost weekly. Sometimes its to just chat, but most of the time its in an attempt to "sext" and beg for dirty pictures. [I can't seem to make myself get rid of him, though I would cut him out completely for Mr. Perfect...]
Then there is College-Ex. C-E took my virginity, broke my heart in college, and was the one I looked up after the Bar Exam to boost my self esteem after Big-X shot it down. It worked, as College-Ex apologized for the way he treated me back then, took me as his date to a wedding, and had to listen to numerous people tell him he made a huge mistake in dumping me. [Just desserts, anyone?] He spends 1/2 the year in FL and looks me up whenever he is in the state and we try to catch up if I'm going to "happen" to be in his vicinity. Catch-up is always a lot of fun. ;) Honestly though, he's a great guy and the late-twenties me can assure the twenty-year-old me that we were never meant to be.
And finally, we have Mr. Thanksgiving or TG. I met him at a Thanksgiving "get-together" that my assistant invited me to because she felt sorry that I was going to get to see my family. We drank too much, flirted, and became facebook friends. About a year after that he was coming back into town for a conference and we met up for a drink. One thing led to another, and when he comes to town he's always a good time.
None of the above mentioned 3 have any long term potential, and ironically all three popped up since Thursday. (Some unexpectedly, but some rather unexpectedly) Regardless, they will serve as nice distracters -- from a distance -- while I wait on Mr. Perfect to get his shit together. Here's to hoping he doesn't break my heart in the end. [though he surely will...]
