Dude, here'* a little story for you. About 20 years ago I met this girl named Karen. Dated her for about 2 years. Really thought that she was the one for me. One day she writes me a nice little letter to tell me she doesn't feel the same way about me, doesn't want to see me any more, and, "oh, by the way I joined the army." Spent a few months completely devastated. I kept thinking she would change her mind. Ended up hanging out with an old friend from High School. Well a year later I get a phone call to tell me she was getting married...end of the line.
Me, I ended up married to my old friend from High School...and I've been that way for the past 18 years.
Did I still think about Karen...yeah, every now and then over the years I would run across something that would remind me of her. Swore off any film that had Molly Ringwald in it...bad memories. So yeah, ya never really get over the first "right" one.
But things have a way of working themselves out. I will not say they always work out for the best, but happiness is something you make for yourself..not something someone gives to you.
So, what happened to Karen? Four kids, two deadbeat husbands who left her, hospitalized for mental illness more than once, charged for neglect, on the brink of financial ruin, no career, no prospects. What a waste, but she did it to herself.
