The Dating Diaries ~ Just Some Thoughts
After 2 failed marriages and getting my heart broken more times than I care to recall, I take a whole new approach when it comes to relationships. It’s about ME. Oh there will be plenty of me that is all about him too, but I have to watch out for me and my now very fragile heart. I am far too special and precious of a person to just settle.
When I give someone my heart I give them all of me. If they abuse it in any way I will retreat behind my walls and pull the drawbridge up again and good luck gaining entrance, I’m just not that forgiving for any additional cracks added to my already scarred heart. And if you suddenly retreat from me over something small like what happened between me and the Count, and have ‘rethink’ us…well I will do the rethinking for you, it’s OVER. See, when I commit to a relationship, it is 100% find a way to work through the crap that is bound to come up, and retreat is not an option. If you have to retreat and rethink, you didn’t want this that bad and you were not committed.
I don’t do second chances either, if you walk away once, you are gone for good and dead to me. Harsh? Perhaps it is, but I have to protect what is left of me if I am going to be special to anyone and able to open up completely and commit totally for life.
