But sometimes the right words are not only listened to but obsessed over for 25 years with rage & vengeance. What a wingnut! All I said was, "There's The Door - *USE IT!* Get over it 25 years later, creep.
Trying to handle things differently this time. Trying to not get attached or hopes up, no matter what enticing words or gestures a guy uses. Only time & consistency will take my walls down. No matter how genuine they seem, i need to stop letting guys into my circles b4 they've earned it consistently, & not let my other amazing options go. Either a guy is all in, or it's not real until it's real. Gotta be compassionate, respectful, but also smart.
