A few weeks ago, a very promising relationship ended. I won't go into a lot of the details but, I will make two important notes. 1) It was through no fault of my own (98% was on him). 2) It went down horribly and hugely betrayed my trust. To answer your next question, it was a Rules relationship. However, I still feel manipulated and like there were some ulterior motives there. Break ups suck and sometimes they happen in Rules relationships. Why? Usually, the relationship wasn't meant to be. If there's a break up now, it's usually for the best. I'm not going into a lot of detail about my situation besides the fact that it wasn't on me (those privy to the situation will tell you the same).
Needless to say, the last few weeks have been rough. Part of me still wonders how something that seemed so perfect turned to a steaming pile of crap- despite doing The Rules. Let's get one thing straight though: I would never take him back in a million years (or any ex for that matter). But, I've had a lot of huge wins- scoring collaborations that will help my coaching business, passing the dreaded accounting class I was terrified of failing (again), and finally having some time to focus on blogging again. Life is good, God is good- no complaints here.
Within an hour of breaking up, I asked seven friends to set me up (none panned out) and set up FOUR online dating profiles. My best friend and I also went to one of the cat cafes downtown and had a blast. Two weeks later, I have a date this weekend. I also got asked out by three different guys last weekend but, it was too late in the week and we had a freak snow storm. Case in point: no one was going anywhere. I also started researching the Law of Attraction and, despite being a Rules Coach, vowed to be even stricter than I was when we met. If something smells like crap, it probably is and I won't get treated this way again.
For men, the best looking woman on the planet is their ex on another man's arm. Usually, men really start regretting a break up- especially if they realize that the woman was out of their league. So, I'm twice as determined now to keep working towards my health, weight loss, and fitness goals.
The Rules tell us to move on ASAP. On top of that, they weed out men that aren't right for us (usually early on) and, down the road Mr. Wonderful won't seem quite so wonderful anymore. So, to help you feel like the Creature Unlike Any Other that you are, I put together the ultimate playlist to recover from your break up.
Rules girls: don't let a break up get you down! Pull yourself together, have fun, and move on! Easier said than done but, you can do it. And when he begs you back? Just laugh and leave it alone- no need for contact.
