Women have long been told men are simple. Communicate simply, feed 'em and f' em and it will all work out. Yet I continue to imagine I mustn't have read the fine print in the owner's manual. I treat men like I treat my girlfriends - with infinite patience, kindness and delicate communication.

Apparently, I should use a baseball bat instead.

Mr Smith called late last night and asked me if I was free on 1/28.

Mr. Smith must be an unbelievable egotist to think that he could tell you that he was still closely involved w/ his ex but that you should still be available when he is around.

You know, Free, I never saw it that way. But I can see your point now.

He's already emailed me back to say, "I know you've been unhappy for months with the way this is going."

That sounds like a much better plan.

I tihnk its a much better plan. Eliminate the negative energy around you, and take care of yourself first.
