Bag of Tricks

Yeah, I know. It's been a while since I posted. Well, lots and nothing have happened since my last post if that makes sense. All I know is that I feel like I'm in the twilight zone and what I needed most is familiarity. So what does a girl do when still nursing a broken heart? Stay home and be sad? Absolutely not! You dig into your bag of tricks and pull out the guys from the past who are always good for a drink and conversation. While I am not a fan of small, trivial talk, there are times when I just need that. And ladies, you know who I mean. The guys you neglected when you were "involved". They're always happy to see you and you're genuinely happy to see them too. The interaction is easy, familiar, comfortable. And they seem to care, even if somewhat superficially. Even the flirting is kind of sweet and minimal enough not to be annoying. The funny thing is that they do it to us too. I just got a call the other day from a guy I hadn't heard from in a year. I didn't ask but I knew it was totally about him being out of a relationship and needing to hang out with a familiar face. Nothing wrong with that. That's what being single is all about.

Ding Ding Ding... I am in this state as we speak. Whenever I break up, I swear the stars realign and all my psuedo ex's come back and we are friends again... How does that work? And yes, its the familiarity and comfort that makes it all work. I also hang with those guys I neglected, but it all depends. Because often the neglected men are needy and the last thing I need when I am in the midst of a break up is neediness.
