Greetings fellow members!! I am new to the group as of yesterday and just wanted to say "hi" and introduce myself a bit, or rather, let you know what's up with me at the moment. I'm smarting in a big way from being on the receiving end of a break up of a ten month relationship, a very rocky relationship and I'm wondering why I attracted this dude into my life. I know there are reasons and that I have lessons to learn from the experience, just not sure what they are yet. He left just over 3 weeks ago and we've communicated ONCE since he left. When he left, we left things open ended re: the future of our relationship. When we communicated a couple weeks ago (via IM on Yahoo), he said he was committed to finding out if we had a future together. I've not heard a single word from him since and day before yesterday, I wrote a short, polite, nonconfrontational email asking him to explain his silence. I've still not received any reply and that hurts. Something's up and he's closed me out of his life completely. It's a really immature way of dealing with things if you ask me and I guess I'm going to need to get closure on this by myself and with trusted friends. Anyway, I'm a nice guy and deserve THE BEST partner for me. Someday he'll come along. I'm very glad that I can vent here and cry here and moan here and create here and intend here and be supported here. Perhaps my ideal mate is one of you in this group. Wouldn't that be just like the Universe? In any case, there's a lot to me and I look forward to posting often. And I want to hear from all of you. Wishing everyone peace and serenity this evening.
