well, it sounds like you are handling things better than expected. She is making a HUGE mistake and she knows it deep down. I don't know why women get attracted to the biggest jerks?? You seem like a very nice guy and you will find yourself a very nice lady that will know how to appreciate the man you are.

It is a fact of life that women want to date bad boys, and settle down with good guys. She hasn't experienced the bad boy yet and she isn't going to like it when she gets hurt. Some people don't know what they have until its gone.

All I can say is I don't' know if she is the "right person" or not. We were VERY compatible, since we are so very similar and I can read her and she can read me, we just had to look at each other and know what the other was thinking. I know I should probably break it off completely but I am going to be selfish here and try to see her as much as possible before I leave for 2 weeks, make sure all she has is good memories of me.


On the other hand, I now have to start to concentrate on WCBF. My plan is to leave Saturday morning to get there in good time, and to try and get some sleep, before the trip. I think I will start to pack today or at least make a list of what I need. Things to remember, my new camera, possibly my old camera ( that I took back yesterday from Renee), my laptop with my GPS receiver, leave my OBDII scanner in my laptop case, LABEL ALL MY ELECTRONIC STUFF, etc.....



All I have to say is she will definitely be missed and IF my phone works down there don't be surprised if she calls me. I told her that she can call anytime but that I am going to TRY and NOT call her. Even though we broke up, she really wanted to come on the trip since it was something we always talked about and I told her that I kinda feel bad that she will not get this experience and that will. Just like I was able to go to the Toronto Grand Prix and she had to work. BUT on the other hand this is good, cause if she was still with me she COULD have come with me, but then again, I wouldn't have even thought of going cause $$$ is always an issue, which is why we have put all our travel plans on hold cause we could never afford it.

That is sad that you would rather be woken up by a mans voice than a womans

Mike- you need to give her the space that she wants so that she can realize what a mistake she has made. How can she miss you if you won't go away (besides the meet)? I wouldn't take her calls or see her. She asked for this to happen, give her what she asks for. You didn't ask for this and you sure don't deserve it but you need to show her how things are now that she has done this- you're not a doormat for someone to walk on. Time will tell if you both can remain friends but she needs to feel what it is like to not have you to fall back on or to run to for advice.

Yes she is the one that asked for this to get it out of her system. On the other hand she is the one asking if she can still call me cause she doesn't wanna lose me as a friend and in case she needs help. I told her I WILL draw the line somewhere in the help department, but that my phone is always on.


I AM setting limits and now I have to stick with them, as hard as it is going to be.

Well another day almost done. I got the $$$ for the line of credit just as she promised, she even came to the bank with me, I had asked her to come, cause I know she feels better knowing that one of "our" bills got paid off.

It was a bit less than what she gave me, so with what was left and a bit of my own $$$ I got 200$ in US for the trip to WCBF. So she is actually paying for my trip, hehe.

We also took the opportunity to take this last picture together( yes that is a BC shirt I have on). She is getting a copy of this picture for herself cause she wanted one. Of course we had to have a good background for it so we used the car, lol.

So today was a good day, got to spend more time with her, and it seems that the more time I get to spend with her talking things over and just being with her, makes it easier to get over her. I guess I can count myself lucky I have the chance to talk to her and spend a bit of time with her before my 2 week trip that I am expecting to change both of us, whether for the good or bad ( as in her missing me ALOT, or getting over me, and me getting over her).

The Bonneville goes in tomorrow to get the AC fixed. I told her I will pick her up at the garage in the morning so she can go home and wait for it to be done. Funny thing she told me is that this guy wanted to spend the day with her and she wouldn't cause we had the bank to deal with and here is the kicker. When she got home last night, the male cat ( which I named dumbass) had peed everywhere and would not come close to her, he was MAJORLY pissed at her. They know when something is up. As I was grabbing the computer and a few other things from her place, he did his usual, lay down in front of me so I can pet him, and I told him ( yes I talked to the cat) that this would be the last time I pet him and to remember that I named him dumbass. Then she came home to that. THAT'* MY BOY, LMFAO. She had to laugh at it too, she said he ( the cat) will make damn sure that she doesn't forget me.

The breakup w/my husband was very similar to this...eerily calm, civilized, etc... Others here may never have experienced such a situation and may think you are being "way to nice"...but I understand.... too much so.

Rock on there buddy... see you in 48 hours....

Me & Jeff'* dad remained friends during the divorce and I even drove him to the court for the final decree, afterwards we went out drinking together. We stayed friends until the day he died. We were better friends than husband & wife.

For some reason, I find that terribly sad.
