The sooner I move out, the better!

` I hate living here. Though I do my best to tune it out, I hate it so very, very much. Why? Angry former boyfriend. Though Phil's been saving my neck left and right, he's also been making nasty remarks about me left and right. Sure, he was sarcastic when we were together - which I didn't like - but not like this!
` Do I deserve it for not telling him I was still interested in him when I was only trying to be? Probably. I guess it all evens out, then....
` Thankfully, I've found two more potential apartments around here that are fairly cheap - one is $325, the other is $375 per month. I haven't been able to get ahold of the managers of either one, so I don't know what they're like.

` Just think... I'll be able to live someplace where there's nobody to pick on me. I actually like being alone. What's'erface at the Co-Op said that there's nothing like living by yourself.
` At the moment, Phil is actually out at a Boeing dance class, hoping to meet another girl, so I don't have to deal with him now. Luckily, he told me he'd be doing this kind of thing a lot, so we won't be interacting very often as long as I'm here.

` Well, I'm off. Gotta go put the clothes in the dryer. (That's one thing I'll miss in my new apartment - a personal washer and dryer!)

That is pretty cheap for an apartment. I hope you find something, having crappy living situations can make life really shitty.
Good luck!
And remember not having your own washer and dryer means you have to go to the laundromat where you can meet hot studs who like clean clothes and smell like dryer sheets

` Thanks. Actually, I'm on the phone with the manager of one of the other apartments.
` She's telling me that she can't take me because of my low income, that grabbing the $400 apartment is a good idea and that finding housing based on income is an even better idea.

` I hope I meet a guy myself. Hopefully not someone who smells like dryer sheets because I can't stand those things!!
` ...And to think, less than three weeks ago I was majorly depressed because a big, scary engagement ring made me fess up before I was ready.

He gave you a ring? And he's looking for girls already??!

heather said...

He's only looking for girls because he feels betrayed and rejected. Anyone he mets is ot going to result in a long lasting relationship, but more a rebound to cover up the loss. Ha...I should become a relationship counselor!!!

(sigh) well amen for being alone though. I enjoy it a great deal.

Amber said...

I didn't even know you were involved like that. I thought he was your roomie.

Aaron said...

Good luck with your move Spoony. Those apartments are really cheap.

Amb-o, I've been to the laundromat because I am one of those hot studs who likes clean clothes and smells like dryer sheets. I don't go there to meet women though, because most women there smell like baby vomit and are not interested in talking to hot studs while folding their underwear.

Amber said...

Well, A-ron, that is what you get when you're still hanging at the laundromat!

Galtron said...

Well, yes, you're right. I'd have elaborated if I didn't have to leave my computer right then: It's just that if it were me I think I'd be too depressed to find girls for longer than three weeks.
That's just me, though.

` I know, I've tended to refer to Phil as my roommate because that is how we've interacted since we moved in together.
` I think he mainly got me the ring because I haven't been able to tolerate any physical contact for the longest time and he wanted to know whether or not I wanted to stay with him.

that sucks. i must've missed some posts since my NYC trip -
i didn't know he gave you a RING!!! Haven't you been dating him since high school?

Do you think you two will retain a friendship in time? or do you think this will be a bad break in which a friendship won't recover?

that sounded hokey, but you know what i mean....

S E E Quine said...

` It's hard to say. He's awfully bitter now because he still loves me.
` Who knows how he'll feel in a couple of years?

Laura said...

I figure it's better that a person know now they aren't loved than later! Men are very sensitive (way more sensitive than women) so it takes them a little longer to get over something they still wanted. Let him pout like a baby for a while... he'll get over it. If he wasn't right for you; you weren't right for him. You really just did him a favor!

` Hey, I wouldn't have done it if I hadn't thought that.
` Also, I guess it's good that I told him just before we went to Ohio so that he he could get away from both myself and his job.

` I guess this is what happens when you don't understand the difference between 'friends' and 'more than friends'.
` Well, what can I say? For the first eighteen years of my life I was constantly forced to numb my emotions. I didn't learn much about them until more recently.
