So, I got dumped.

And im here to tell you all about it
But I shall skip the boring postmortems
Explaining why and what and how many gallons of ice cream are currently being consumed.

Ive never like being dumped, never.
It’s happened to me three times, the first
Because I cheated (fair enough)
The second
They took it back after 20 minutes and begged for forgiveness
And now the third
Because I deserve better (ha!)

Anyway, it’s embarrassing because of so many trivial meaningless things
My myspace status says ‘in a relationship’
Everyone in school knew about us and constantly likes to ask “how’s what’s-her-face?”
I had just told my close friends I was finally in love
And to everyone else, ‘oh im very very happy with her. She’s great – perfect. I’m so frickin’ happy’

Being dumped
Oh yes, it’s depressing
Makes me want to CRY
Because my ipod is filled with love songs
My plans for the next couple of weeks all involve her
It’s not my fault apparently, but I can’t see how it is at all hers either

I know what I want to do right now
Wrap myself in a blanket
One made of corny American teen clichés
Bring on the family sized chocolate blocks
Put on ‘Tom Jones 20 great love songs’
Sob into my weights worth of pillows
Use a couple of million tissues
Shuffle in Ugg boots
Sport knotted hair
Wear mens sized jumpers
And my granny undies

I don’t know how im going to deal with it this time
The first time I was dumped
It seemed a bit unreal
And I got over it quickly
The second
Oh god it went on and on and on and we never got over each other and spent about a year in total falling in and out of love
Now, I just don’t know.

Ive been told I don’t like to let go of things
And I think it’s true
Friends, lovers, objects… Everything that ever meant something to me
I feel like im betraying the past, going back on everything that happened
Belittling it in a way
By just moving on, falling out love easily, ending bad friendships.. even throwing out junk!
Its probably not good for me
If I can never truly move on
Then I’m never going to get anywhere

I have all the answers to all my troubles
But I just got dumped and am distraught
And will have forgotten by the morning

The good news is
We are still going to be friends
That’s what i tried with Mr. 2 boyfriend
But he was different, sex obsessed.
She’s not
We get along because of our interests, and personalities etc.
Oh and theres that sexual chemistry
But unlike Mr. 2, we both know how to get over that
And focus on friendship
I know we will stay friends; we had a try at it today
She overcompensated a bit maybe
But i like when she’s happy and friendly anyway

Thank you for listening to my vent
You can comment and wish me the best
But a bear hug, kiss on the forehead
And a giant toblerone would also be welcome.
