I could fall in love at a red light

That’s what my friend Al told us in an AA meeting the other day, and I chuckled as I heard him say it because it aptly described me.

Well at least that’s how it feels when I do fall in love.   It happens so fast, so forcefully.   The way “normal” people describe it, they tell their story of how they fell in love….as if they met at some random place and over many many times get to know each other.  Seems normal yanno.

Me, I end up finding my suitor at said random place but then end up telling them my life story in under 5 minutes and then falling completely madly in love in the next 5.

Yeah, I’m so relationship material.

I have such excellent fucking boundaries don’t cha know.

Then two weeks later when the guy cold calls me at 3 am to pick him up and rescue him from some dramatic crazy situation?

You guessed it, I am right there with my fucked up cape on, driving to east overshoe in some contorted Mother Teresa-esque fashion hoping to “save” him from himself.

And this would describe the “good part” of the relationship, if it even gets off the ground.

It usually only gets worse from there….consisting of me taking verbal abuse or worse.

nuff said.

****

think I need drivers-ed, or maybe a total license suspension to drive on the highway of love.

SIDE BAR:  Mother Teresa is one of the greatest people who ever lived…….an awesome inspiration to me.  A real life modern day heroine.

    Lol I love the way you think and then manage to put it into words. So often you hit on exactly what I’ve done or thought.
    When I first met JC he called saying some guys took a baseball bat to him. “they did a good job this time babe”. That should have tipped me off right there the “this time” part. If a person gets the shit kicked out of him on a regular basis he’s doing something to piss people off and probably not someone you
    want to hang with. But what do I do? Drive the 1 1/2 hrs to play nursemaid. You know where that got me.

    • Exactly! The obvious “red flags” for some reason in my brain don’t seem red flaggy to me. They seem like distress signals from some kitten stuck up a tree.

      go figure….but then it’s me we are talking about~

      • I think “you” are refreshingly honest and say what alot of people think but never admit. OR you are totally unique and that’s cool too.

        My brother used to say they should have a reality show “Who Wants to Marry a Loser” and I could star in it. I’m sure we could find 10 more women hell!, men can play too!! We could each marry a Loser abuser the first season and the next season we could all get abused and dumped, the last one standing wins; well not really …. We all lose. Lol
