About A Woman

Posted on: Wednesday 03/28/2018 12:09:07

Call me Mr. Blindsided. Related to she whom will now be referred to "That Woman", right before she ditched me I ordered a somewhat expensive bracelet for her. I take that back, it was expensive- solid silver with six small diamonds on either side of the clasp. I thought what the biggest way to surprise her would be to have it sent right to her from the jewelry company from which I ordered it. 

She would receive a small package from "Hildebrand & Solomon", and not have a clue. Wrong. I spoke to someone from Fed Ex today when the online tracking showed it as not delivered, five days overdue. They apparently are having a hard time gaining access to her apartment building to deliver it. It's sitting in a delivery terminal. I am going to freak the fuck out if they lose it.

Yes, way-too-kind-hearted-Don. As soon as she crushed me I should have immediately stopped delivery, and had it returned to me. But, still the fool, it was meant for her, only her, I still wanted her to have it, so I didn't have it returned. 

However, though I still have my feelings for her, and am hurt, I'm determined to not make a repeat of my infamous error. I'm not going to pine for this woman or let mourning an abruptly ended relationship eat my time like I did with my ex. This was months, not the 2 years I had with my ex.

You know, with this and other things, I just want someone to sit down and talk with for a while, mutual sharing of dog shit piles. Due to no fault of my own I assure you, I only have one set of friends left. He suffers sever depression, so doesn't need to hear my nonsense. His wife works with the mentally ill for the state, so same there. She deals with something from strangers all day, the goes home at night to do the same with her husband. A saint in my book. I would be, and would feel selfish looking to them for support.

    Surely it an item cannot be delivered, and you are registered as the sender, you can request for it to be returned to you after a reasonable time? If I understand correctly she will not be expecting it, and will presumably be downright embarrassed to receive it when she realises who sent it. Hell, she may even send it back to you herself.

    As to your predicament, like I say, I’ve never been in such a situation, so the answer seems simple to me: stop trying if it just causes you grief. There again, I’ve always been happy to be alone, something that evidently doesn’t appeal to you. Perhaps ordinary friends? My brother, also a somewhat solitary type, joined a local group of ramblers where he went to live after his retirement. It gives him like-minded people to talk to every other weekend. Something like that, perhaps? /homepage

    Dude! Get it sent to you immediately.

    Stop being a god damn clown.

    Maybe it's because it's the end of the month and funds are running low, but Lerm is right: contact FedEx today and get it sent to you, or sent back to the store for a refund. Are there any Humane organizations near you that do activities? If so, you could probably take Bosco with you as an ice-breaker / moral support, and perhaps find some friends who are as caring and compassionate as you. I'm like Simon as far as human companionship. I can only take people in homeopathic doses (and I mean that figuratively. I don't drown them in 6 million times their weight in water first). /homepage

    ^ That is a relief because I live in a desert, and that sounds like a really irresponsible use of water. Unless I am THAT bad of a person, in which case, who needs to water their rosebushes anydamnway?

    I KNOW it's hard but giving your heart away so easily, so fast, is bound to cause heartbreak. Of course, I'm not sure being cold like me is the answer, either. I just hate to see you so sad :(

  • Fritz The Bootlegger Says:
    Yeah man you really need to get it returned to you.

  • H3OsMama Says:
    Get returned to you. Today!
    I don't know what advice I can offer. You are a romantic at heart, and I'm the opposite..burn me once, I'm not going there again. /homepage

  • kittenheel Says:
    Maybe it's because of the women I end up being friends with, but my experience is that if anyone is "the romantic one" in a relationship, it's the guy. Olivia's still a little bit of a romantic, but I am confident that by the time she's 30, she'll be asking for things like belt sanders and weed whackers for her birthday.

  • H3OsMama Says:
    Jon is waaaaaayyy more romantic than I am. I guess someone has to be, right? /homepage

  • knifeboy Says:
    Belt sanders and weed whackers. I love that, Mary. Thanks for the smirk it gave me. Everyone, thank you for the support. Yes, I'm a romantic, curse me. Yes, it's been too long on the delivery. Due to circumstances I won't go into, her 19-year-old is literally always there. I'm having it sent back.

  • Fritz The Bootlegger Says:
    Nothing wrong with being a romantic but there’s a fine line between being a romantic and, well, this. Getting it returned is the right thing.
