Great post. We're living parallel lives right now. I just wrote all this out for myself (more or less) this morning and am trekking south to get the punishment of finding the specific reasons. Good advice for being on the other side...and as Susan noted, we've all been there.
Loved the line "In other words, she was totally wrong for me...."
If only we could will our hearts to love the ones who show up and do every last perfect thing we've always wanted, and not the totally wrong one, v2.0, or 3.0 et al.
An A'Cote cheers to you, my friend. I'm right there with ya.

Eric, the replay is certainly the worst! The way you can actually feel the embarrassment of each interaction you doubt...the way those moments sneak up on you when you least expect it... Way to take the summer approach! Stew is definitely too hot for now. You rock.


This is a great post Eric and I can't tell you how many times I've done the replay too. This post was like you were in my head.

The best advice a good friend of mine gave me this past January, that you mentioned here as well, was to stop looking for the one and enjoy the dates I was going on and just be open for possibilities. I did just that, went on a few dates, enjoyed myself and then a few weeks later met the guy I am still with now by pure accident. It will happen for you too. That girl is out there...and she'll find you.
