single.. at long last.

For the first time in close to 8 years I am truly a 'free' man.. For me it is a moment of retrospection, I have a lot of regrets and guilt about the path of destruction and the hurt that I leave behind. There is also a sense of loss at the thought that I will most probably never again see or talk to the person who loved me so much, almost w/o condition - even after she had been put through hell and lost so much. Now, it seems she is finally ready to move on and let go.. c'est la vie man. Welcome, such is the life.

I find it interesting at our relatively (a bit of an understatement i suspect) similar situation, yet our completely different views on the matter.

I feel more like my life has stopped.

I wish you luck, you crazy bastage.

I find comfort in knowing there'll be plenty of folks to commiserate with when/if I find myself single again...

In the past month I've lost two women from my life.. both were unhealthy relationships - but both were in many ways very difficult to lose. I will miss her, -this my gf whom I've known for 8 years. She was my first.. she was often times difficult and fustrating for me to be around, but her heart was the purest and most lovong I've every known. All she wanted was to settle down with me and be loved 'completely' and w/o reservation by me.. But I am digressing, because like Charles I am rather drunk right now.. No, I am ready to stop living a Bukowski life style now, thanks.. I am 'free' - no more need for the booze and all that. Praise Jeebus.

Actually RH, I thought maybe Bukowski might cheer you up because his life was so absolutey f'd up that almost any other life would seem wholesome by comparison.

Maybe you'll just be envious. Read something recommended by Oprah instead.

I just called her up after four or five days w/o speaking - and she claimed that her stuff came.. and that I had 'no business' w/her any longer. The last time we hung out one week ago I invited her over for dinner - and fed her some healthy home cooked food (incase she was eating for two) - and I was hoping that the two of us could just 'get along' and have a good time .. I asked her what kind of computer she had bought recently - and then joked with her about whether her new laptop computer had a broken caps lock key - becz she had kept on sending me angry/irate e-mails written ENTIRELY IN UPPER CASE LETTERS - even after I had asked that she not do that anymore. I was just 'joking' (haha) about the caps lock key being broken though.. but she used it as an excuse to go on, and on, (and on) about everything in the past that I had done that hurt her.. I kept waiting for it to come to an end... but she would not stop. She ended up sleeping alone in my room that night... until she took a cab home, (which I refused to pay for). . when she got home and got cab money from her mom, she apparently proceeded to tell her mom enough about me so that now her mom and her family ppl hate me.. so yeah. it's over, for good.

Mr. Noriega, your regrets in these personal matters pale in comparison to the self-loathing you should feel for your years of cocaine trafficking, racketeering and money laundering.

No man.. I am bumbed. It is a mourning process, you know? It's part of life.. but for every dark day there is also a bright side. We are both 'free' to meet new ppl, Timmy - w/o potential harmful reprocussions to other's.

My current baggage is only slightly related to her, you can only pretend to be happy for so long before it just gets old

I find comfort in being God's gift to women. Sort of the fruitcake sort of gift version, but a gift nonetheless. Somewhere out there some confused broad is pounding fruitcakes like chicklets. That's where I'd be.
