“The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for.” — Maureen Dowd

It astounds me what people will settle for in a personal “relationship.” Blows my mind even further what great things they give up to hold on to so very little.

I’d say I’m the “great things” to which I refer, but since my heart really did turn into a paperweight at some point, my give-a-fuck-o-meter refuses to actually turn over and feel any amount of joy at this fact.

Dear men, we know everything on your mind … everything you’re up to … everything you’re even THINKING of doing before you ever do it.

Even if it isn’t me. I’m OK with that. I just know he can do so much better and it kills me to see him being happy with absolutely nothing. (At least, as far as I can tell from a copious amount of Facebook stalking. And, hell, knowing what I know.)

Maybe he sees something I don’t. Or maybe it’s time to take someone to the eye doctor. 😉

When I said yesterday about the car that no one will love it like I would have, but it’s time to let someone else try, I wasn’t talking about the car. And I certainly wasn’t talking about her. …
