True Confessions: “Someday I’ll Meet a Really Great Girl” … Said My Boyfriend!

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 9:14 am

truecircleDear Breakup Girl,

I am totally confused by my ex-boyfriend. I dated this guy for only a couple months, but fell head over heels for him almost immediately! He and I had everything in common, or so it seemed.

One of the greatest things about him was that every day when he got home from work, the first thing he would do was call me. I could practically set my watch- half an hour after he was scheduled to finish,he’d call me. It didn’t matter if it was 5pm or 11pm (he worked anywhere from 40-80 hours a week between two jobs).

He was also very affectionate, telling me how much he cared about me, etc. The only problem was, he would occasionally say things like “Some day I’ll meet a really great girl and get married.” Now, I’m a college student, and a realist, and I know that guys aren’t looking to marry someone they date at age 20. Even so, it bothered me to here him say that. It made me feel like I was just an amusement before the feature presentation or something.

Well, I went away on vacation for a week, and spoke with him on the phone a couple times while I was gone. The night that I got back we spent the whole evening snuggling and watching South Park episodes. Then, the next day, we went to his cabin and while we were sitting around, he made another one of his “Someday…” comments. I was so frustrated that I said “I don’t even know why I bother with this. I should just go meet someone else.” Well, I immediately regretted it and apologized, but he started in on this whole “As long as we know this relationship isn’t going anywhere, its fine for both of us right?” I said that under normal circumstances it might work out, but I told him that I hated knowing that as soon as he met someone even slightly more interesting than me he’d toss me out like yesterday’s underwear.

To make a long story short (ok, too late, how about shortER), we ended up breaking up, and when he drove me home he said he’d call me tomorrow, and I told him not to call me for a very long time. The next day, I regretted it, and called him back and apologized, at which time he shouted triumphantly into the phone “HA! I knew you still wanted me!” Then we started talking and agreed that the whole argument was a misunderstanding, but he didn’t want to get back together again, just be the same only “informal.”

Since then we had one more huge argument over a rude comment he made to one of my friends (he was joking but she made a huge deal out of it and I got caught in the middle) but made up AGAIN. After that, though, it seems like things aren’t as good as they were before, we hardly talked, if at all, but it seems like he is always WATCHING me. Every time I go to the club where we met, he’s there, and he just STARES at me. Now, normally this wouldn’t bother me, but I still care about him a lot, and it drives me crazy to always see him looking at me, because when I try to go talk to him, he looks at me with this appalled look, like I have bugs crawling out of my mouth or something. I can’t stand these mixed signals! I could be over this guy by now (it’s been almost two months since we broke up) but I can’t get it out of my head that he still cares about me, otherwise why would he always be watching me? When I dance with other guys he glares at me or takes off, yet if I ever try to joke around with him about something he usually gets very uncomfortable and ends the conversation. The last time I saw him, I didn’t notice him standing with some friends as I walked through a club, and he said hi to me while not turning to face me, then hid his head after he said it. I had no idea what that meant, so just said hi, smiled and kept walking.

What do you think? Does this guy still like me? Should I give up? Should I pour my heart out and see what happens?

— Bewildered

Dear Bewildered,

I don’t know what bothers me more, his “Someday…” refrain, or the fact that you “snuggled” to South Park. Either way, from what you tell me, this guy’s not coming through for you any time soon. He strikes me as, um, really weird and annoying. And how come YOU feel bad about calling him on it? That, actually, bothers me most of all. Next time, watch those bastards kill Kenny alone.

  4. I have a tiny bit of sympathy for him- I think his thought process might have gone something along the line of- if I can't leave my house, I can't help manage this emergency. No excuse, and I'm sure there was an alternative, but still. I can see how he thought it might be OK.

  9. There are quite a few softwares, I would suggest you to use Caliber. Its a very versatile software with many conversion options.PDF preserve formatting which is not supported in ePub / Mobi file systems. So, preserving the formatting would still be an issue. You can cobvert the PDF in to a word file, then remove the unnecessary formatting. Then you can convert into to ePub. +1Was this answer helpful?

  11. I really appreciate you sharing your sewing table idea for free motion quilting. I am going to try this. Also I purchased Compass Capers from you this past weekend at the quilt show in Oshkosh and I am so excited after having drafting it today, it was not as hard as it looked. You have a way of making things easier..thanks so much

  12. Pat,I liked your response, especially the concluding riff on our reliable Scots-Irishman. Does he ever not appear in chivalrous defense of our eternally persecuted friends? And even pre-emptively this time. He’s like the Deep Blue chess computer: he anticipates anti-semitism 17 moves in advance and is already blocking its rook with his anti-Irish catholic bishop. Unfortunately it appears your comments have been shitcanned—though Mary’s response above seemed to indicate she could see them? Maybe my area of the Interwebs is slow to update today.

  14. I agree with Chase, your method for building models is very similar to the scientific method. Understanding the problem, time period, and different variables makes sense. I look forward to hearing about the different models you have constructed, and which ones were successful and which ones were not, and your conclusions why

  16. 王逸2012 年 10 月 10 日游戏渠道:pp助手版幻想精灵区服:闪耀平原账号:gghollyID号:12160角色名:星空我的建议/想法:我觉得这个游戏的乐趣应该在于让玩家不停地探索不同精灵的搭配,技能的搭配等等,诸如练级,抓宠之类特别耗时间的还是尽量缩短些吧,可以考虑回复活力值的时间加长一点,打怪的经验和金钱大幅增加。像亲亲客服组之类的副本最好能让队长设置进入加入队伍等级限制,自动开始战斗和自动再次创建,然后创建了以后也能切出来干点别的。网友搜索里建议能加入占领搜索,自动过滤掉无法占领的人,比如等级过低的,然后最好能筛选出未被占领的,以提高占领的效率。卖掉已经升级过的装备最好能直接卖,而不用先降级到0级。带上的装备可以不占仓库位子,缓解仓位紧张的压力。另外,由于扩展了生命泉,所以一天十次的机会不如集中到一起好了。还有,更新以后一开任务栏就弹出,希望尽快解决这个Bug。

  19. I have realized that of all sorts of insurance, health insurance is the most debatable because of the conflict between the insurance cover company’s necessity to remain adrift and the customer’s need to have insurance plan. Insurance companies’ profits on overall health plans are extremely low, as a result some businesses struggle to earn profits. Thanks for the thoughts you share through your blog.

  26. If you have an XP license, you could get XP running under VirtualBox and keep using your old copy on your new Win7 box. I did that for an ancient copy of Visio when I couldn't get the company I worked for at the time to spring for a newer version. Amazingly, they sprang for an MSDN license (complete with access to all the XP images).

  36. I am probably in the minority when I say this economic downturn may be a good thing in the long run. I think we avoided several downturns over the last few decades, or minimized them, and that will make this one more severe. But we need it. Sometimes, pain is necessary (as in your birthing metaphor) and the long term reward is great. Now, everyone, breathe!
