He Says/She Says
He says, I love you and I can't live without you.
She says, But you're married.
He says, My love, my darling, my sweetheart, you're the girl for me.
She says, What about your wife?
He says, You are the love of my life. I don't love anyone else the way I love you.
She says, Why don't you leave your wife then?
He says, I want more than anything to hear your voice and see your face every day and hold you in my arms.
She says, If you love me so much how about leaving your wife and getting a divorce?
He says, I know we're meant to be together. I feel it. I feel so wonderful around you.
She says, So, when are you leaving your wife?
He says, My darling, I love everything you say to me.
She says, So how about a divorce?
He says, She isn't willing to give me a divorce.
She says, I love you very much, but I need someone who is free to be with me.
He says, I will be free someday soon.
She says, When is soon?
He says, She is willing to give me a divorce, but she won't pay for it, and as you know I can't afford it.
She says, Why don't you borrow some money?
He says, You are so lovely, so beautiful, a joy, a wonder.
She says, Listen, I've found some firms that can grant you a cheap and quick divorce.
He says, You mean the world to me and the thought of being without you just really tears me up and makes me feel empty.
She says, I found you places where you can get a cheap divorce and I'm also sending you the number of someone who has a cheap apartment available, so you can move out.
He says, Oh darling, you are such a sweet delightful creature, and I love all your sweet communications.
She says, Listen buddy, I've done everything I can for you. You can get a quick and cheap divorce and I have found you a place to live. Please don't contact me until you're free to be with me.
He says, Oh my darling, oh my dear, oh sweet love of my life, etc.
He goes on and on and on in this vein, but the one thing he can never do is face reality and take responsibility and just be honest with himself, with his wife and with the other woman.
Does this sound familiar to anyone?
