So I'm back on the market now. Not that I was ever really off the market. Not officially. I just kinda sorta felt like being exclusive. You know, just in case.
This morning I went and met WeirdGirl at work, and told her that I didn't think we should see each other anymore.
She looked surprised for a second, then smiled and said, "That's fine."
I think that those two words pretty much sum up her entire personality. The girl's never been hurt, never had to climb her way out of anything, especially not a pit of despair. And she certainly wasn't about to fall into one over me.
I asked her if she wanted to know why, and she said, "Not really. It doesn't matter. It's not like we were going to get married or anything."
So that was painless.
Now all I've got to deal with is the possibility that I've turned into an asshole. I've been dealing with that possibility for years. You'd think I'd be better at it by now.
