Well, what u want is to do a better job of identifying a "good" person. I cannot beleeeeeeeve how many signs I overlooked with this one. Trust is not only borne of having faith in someone's motives; in my case, it's also borne of the refusal to grasp the mindset of unnecessary, over-the-top scheisty-ness. Ironically, it's almost an intentional, knowing naivete.quote:Originally posted by shulamite:quote:Originally posted by FireFly:that people come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime... but always a reason.
Yeah, but it doesn't make the pain any easier. After a point, you want good people to stop exiting your life, no?
I do not want my life to be a carousel...
Clearly, logic is NOT a sound basis for trusting someone.
And Firefly, I should point out that this is not quite the "hell" you may have gone through, because fortunately this got nipped in the bud fairly quickly, less than 3 months in. It's just terribly disappointing. In the long run, the worst part of this is the women I didn't go out with or pursue while messing with this one, and the constructive things I could have done instead of wasting valuable time with this one.
And, of course, that dumb and blind feeling.
