Breaking Up

One of my biggest pet peeves is when you tell me you are going to do something and you don’t actually follow through with it. This is happened to me twice this weekend.

As I previously wrote Ms. Ineedacheeseburger and Mr. Breadstick had split sighting religious differences. Well they got back together to “work things out” on Easter. Here’s the deal. Ms. Ineedacheeseburger is an Eastern Orthodox Catholic. Mr. Breadstick is either Baptist or Methodist (I can’t recall). So there are some difference in the way the Christian religion is practiced between the two. What their argument boiled down to is Ms. Ineedacheeseburger wants their children (if they get married and have them) to be raised like she was and Mr. Breadstick disagrees.

Now speaking from experience, this is an issue that Pig and I had. He was Catholic and I am a Southern Baptist. We did the same thing. We talked about our differences of practice and tried to gain a basic understanding of each other’s religions. Blah blah blah. So on and so forth. But in the end it came down to him wanting our children to be Catholic and I didn’t. It was one of the reasons we parted ways. Hindsight is 20-20, I know, but looking back Pig and I held on to a failing relationship for longer than we should have simply because we didn’t want to admit that our religious differences were a deal breaker. Sadly, I believe that this is what Mr. Breadstick and Ms. Ineedacheeseburger are doing as well. Nevertheless, time will tell and they will both learn something about themselves in the end.

As Ms. EatsPlentyOfCheeseburgers pointed out to me, Patti Stanger says, “Religion…is a deal-breaker. Can’t take a Jew and mix it with a Baptist. Not gonna make it happen in a million years.”

The second split of the weekend that turned out to hold no water was between Mr. Delicious and TF. This relationship is honestly worse than beating a dead horse. I mean really. They have been over their issues time and time again and yet they still keep riding a quickly sinking ship. I don’t really get it. Why would you waste your time? Either way, Mr. Delicious told me on Thursday that TF punched him five times (closed fist) because she is has PMS. She demanded a massage  and then claimed Mr. Delicious was hurting her, which I can personally say that Mr. Delicious gives excellent massages, so that cannot possibly be true. Fucking ridiculous. This is not the first time she has hit him either. Personally, if he hit her back, I wouldn’t blame him one bit. Whatever. They apparently worked it out and spent Easter together.

Either way, I believe both of these relationships are complete horseshit and they need to end.  Learn something about yourself. Move on. Unfortunately, they can see what I see because they are blinded by “love”. But I can promise you when the bottom does fall out, I’ll be there to help pick up the pieces.

Friends Versus Girlfriends

Yep. Definitely a lazy Sunday. Out to a late lunch and beer. Home for a movie and bed as soon as I finish this. But in the mean time I’m going to catch you up on some recent occurrences.

Situation #1: Mr. Delicious, as I previously told you, has a girlfriend. We are still friends. No big deal (now). But here within the past few days he has been asking me for relationship advice. HA! So ironic. I mean think about he is ask me, the girl he was playing, for advice on the girl he picked over me. Once again, HA! So the story goes like this: (Now I edited some because I hate shorthand text and I’m not going to reveal anyone’s real name.)

Mr. Delicious-I love great girlfriend’s (sarcasm)
Nelson-Oh no. What’s up?
D-I’ll have to explain it but long story short (his girlfriend who we will call TF) went to “dinner ” with an old friend and got drunk with him. She got mad when I said why can’t you just make it lunch ….not to happy right now.
N-Oh. I see. You are basically asking for a compromise and it didn’t go over well?
D-I trust her but I’m not an idiot. I don’t know why I always get screwed by chicks I fall for. I’m a very honest guy in a relationship and my bigggggest pet peeve is when someone lies to not ” hurt” the other person, and she’s doing that tonight.
N-Oh I see. I’m going to side with you on this. You never lie ever in a relationship. Its better to tell the truth and hurt them D-She’s still at the bar. It’s 11:30 here. She’s been there since 6. N-Ummm. Ok. So she’s with the “old friend” right?
N-Does she think you’re playing the “jealous boyfriend” card?
D-She accused me of it or the “you won’t let me be with friends” card when I asked her what was wrong with doing lunch. N-Um. Ok. So now she’s mad and probably out just to spite you. Thoughts? D-What should I do? I don’t think she’s out like that but you never know.
N-I would let it be for the night. Tell her to have a good time and calmly explain to her tomorrow how you feel. She’s might take it well or she’ll flip out. I don’t know her well enough to know what she’s going to do but I’m going to guess that she’s going to get mad. But the important thing is that you addressed it the right way.

A little while later…

N-Playing devils advocate here, do you think you are reading too much into it?
D-I’m sure I am a little but I wouldn’t be if I wasn’t given doubt or reason to. N-Fair point. Just checking to make sure you’re thinking the right way. D-I am.
N-So, are you still chatting with TF?
D-It’s on and off texting. I said goodnight and she keeps saying she’ll call but hasn’t. N-She isn’t going to call you until she gets home.
D-Figures. Why is that?
N-Ha. Just saying. That’s what I’d do. I’d be too drunk to drive and talk on the phone so I’d call when I got home.

The next day…

N-Talk to TF yet?
D-We argued last night. It’s whatever. I need a break.
N-That’s unfortunate.
D-It happens.
N-Yeah but for me I get really frustrated when they are being irrational and won’t communicate with me. D-We talked but we agreed for space.
N-Space or break? There’s a big difference.
D-We are debating on the break but I don’t know. We’ll see.

So, now that I have him confiding in me, I’m going to him a favor and be his friend with advice. I hate to witness break ups because they remind me too much of other things but he doesn’t realize what he his dealing with. TF is lovely to some, but, or so I have been told, she’s a raging douchebag to some people. Regardless, I’m playing the fence. I’ll be friend her if necessary, but in the end I always side with my boys (or my super close girlfriends). Always.

Situation #2: Mr. Breadsticks has been talking to me every day. I find this to be weird, but nice that we are back to being friends. However, I have a strange feeling that when Ms. Ineedacheeseburger returns to the US (She went to Egypt for a school trip. So legit!), he’ll stop talking to me. Which, frankly, will piss me off because you never ever choose your significant other over your friends. I guess time will tell!

Off to bed now, and off to Mississippi tomorrow.
