How to activate your brain's superpowers.
Verified by Psychology Today
I was told by an ex in 2011 that I was staring at him. I was infatuated and I would stare at his clothing, his eyes, his shoes and so on. He got very upset one day, but I left before finding out what he was upset at me for.
I knew that I couldn't stand a man with anger issues, but he inspired the most intense feelings that I ever experienced in my life. He still can't stand getting an e-mail from me because he thinks that people shouldn't have friends. He doesn't want me to think of him as my friend, but he was always there to motivate me and make me feel better. His name start with R.
Online dating was easier for me since I won't stare at the man. It gets the ball rolling and we get to see if we like the way we act. It was a lot of fun, but I want the man that I can be family with and none of those guys nor I really wanted to move 1,000 miles to be with each other. Maybe we just weren't in love or had a lack of experience in moving. It was just good companionship.
I don't even think about bad dates, but the funniest one was when a guy thought I was his ex-girlfriend's friend trying to make a practical joke on him. Or, the workaholic that wanted to give me business advice rather than date me. Those were very funny, but of course, not really what I was hoping for.
It's been difficult to forget R. Just being in the same room with him would bring oxygen back to my lungs. He just doesn't love me any more and I have to respect his wishes.
