The Text Message at 1:43am...

The Mess Ex
It was Daylight Savings & 3am or 4am...I was dressed as little red riding hood 3 Halloweens ago and he was dressed as an 80's cartoon character. We walked about two mile up the road to where our cars were waiting for us. I told him I was upset that he didn't visit me at home after I had my gall bladder removal surgery, even when he works less than a minute from my house. He said he'd been busy. I knew what that meant, even if I didn't want to admit it. When we reached our cars I took off my red corset with his help and he grazed his fingers seductively over my back. His girlfriend wasn't there this night so I thought I still had a chance with him...but when I watched his car in my rear view mirror turn off for his exit, I knew. That would be the last day we would ever hang out together on purpose...

The Gray-Eyed Spanish Boy Ex
It was our 3rd date and we were crawling all over each other in my car. He kissed me so hard because I bit his lip just the way he liked it. We fumbled some more to be comfortable in our little make-out session that was rapidly becoming something else. Right before the passion overcame our judgements, he moaned a name. "Emily." I felt like I was hit with a thousand bricks and then set on fire. I froze & released my hands in his hair causing him to hit his head against my passenger side window. I opened my closed eyes and said, "I'm Chloe." He looked at me puzzled but then the realization of what he did crept up him slowly. That was the last time I ever saw him...

The Drummer Boy Ex
He had called me out of the blue to apologize for being a jerk to me years before. I couldn't understand why he would call because our barely relationship was too long ago and not deep enough to re-kindle. I pondered this thought all night as we ate at this little pizza place he had invited me to. I went back to his house afterwards and when he said, "Would you like to come up to my bedroom and we can watch a movie?". Reality crashed forward and I looked at his come hither look. I knew then I would NEVER step foot in that house again...I made some lame excuse that I was tired. It was the last time I ever saw him.

Why share these little stories of my past with you?

I got a text message at 1:43am yesterday morning letting me know that my best friend and her boyfriend ended their 6 year relationship. Her phone is broken and she can only talk to me through it on speaker phone. She didn't have the time today to talk so I couldn't find out the details...I knew things were not working out with her boyfriend and her...but I didn't expect that she was having an emotional affair with someone in Chicago over an Xbox 360 multi-player game or she could have just been looking for a way out of her relationship? I have to find out...When did she know it was over? They live together and her boyfriend doesn't have a job or enough savings to move out...This is big...Horribly big... =/

Breakups are never easy...but I got my listening ears on & my shoulder  ready to be cried on...I hope she finds a moment to call...I hope she reaches out for help if she needs it...


  1. You are such a good friend to be there for her. Breakups are hard, even the slightest tiff with my husband throws me through a terrible emotional spiral. I hope everything works out for the best.

  2. It is so nice that you shared parts of your past like that. I love your blog...it's so real. And it's so nice that you are so caring of your friend.

  3. Yikes! Sounds like your friend is going through such a tough time right now. It's great that she has you available to talk to. :)

  4. Actually, it sounds like your friend is about to set herself free. Confusing, yes but liberating just the same. In reference to your break-ups - I can relate. I love that you had the strength and self respect to walk away from them. Annnddddd there is nothing worse (okay, maybe a few things) than being called another woman's name.

    I hope everything works out for your friend!

  5. You move blogs and then I lose you. I actually thought about you the other day and wondered how you were doing. Hahaha. I'm following again.

  6. I love how you shared your stories in this post. You have a wonderful blog!

  7. Oh girl ! Definitley following you on gfc.
    You are my new daily does of Carrie Bradshaw !

  8. whao!!! seriously,felt i was reading a novel i didnt want it to end at all. oh my wholly world this makes me rewind back to when i was single until i met Mr Right, oh jezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz i hate relationships it makes me feel like little alice in the wonder world, huh!? the love, hates, breakups,sneaking, faking and hideouts is enough to give one a heart attack lol.

  9. Oh wow. breakups are never easy, I guess you can just be the listening ear for her until she's ready to tell all of the facts. :)

  10. Good for you for being able to be so open and honest on your blog! I am always afraid to delve much deeper than surface level stuff, sounds like you'll be a good friend to her!

  11. My heart goes out to your friend! 6 years is such a long time - her heart must be breaking but it sounds like she is lucky to have you for support!

  12. Having ended a marriage that was part of a 6 year relationship I can tell you that it's probably very, very messy.

    Lend an ear and a shoulder to cry on. She'll need it.
