City Girl,
Chin up. I've been where you've been and worse (Good god, one break-up had me on crying jags, Xanax, living on icecream and not bothering to bathe... :eek:and I'm vain, so the bathing thing...wow. ). I came to my senses once I realized no guy is worth becoming a smelly, pill popping, icecream devouring head case surrounded by clouds of snotty tissues...Not pretty. :nono: ). Needless to say, I felt pretty bad about myself, and pretty devastated over the break up. HOWEVER, as time has passed, you know what I think now? WHAT THE HELL DID I EVER SEE IN THIS GUY ANYWAY??? I mean, really, some guys are just not worth the price of a box of Kleenex (or a prescription, or a pint of icecream, or a liter of Vodka... :D ). It just takes you a while to realize it. I'm *significantly* older than you, and I'm just realizing it now. (Hey, I never claimed to be the brightest bulb in the box... :) )
I can't say I've found my Prince Charming, but I can say that I'm dating a really sweet guy who treats me like a human being. (Sheesh, it's about damn time!) Don't give up. I mean, I've definitely got a thicker skin now, so I can weather a break up, rejection better than I used to, but I'm still vulnerable, and I'm pushing 40! (Although, I like to think I'm not pushing it very hard...). It sucks, but you have to force yourself to trust again, to believe that you deserve respect, to believe in love and to have the courage to find it ALL. And it takes courage!
