Closer Than You Think

Well, that's it! I have had my heartbroken for the last time. I give up on love. I'm sick and tired of women. One minute they love you and the next minute they don't. I just don't get it, so I give up.

I have thought about this for a long time. Who needs this garbage? Well, I did, but not anymore. Thanks to everyone I gave my heart to and who threw it in the trash.

If it is meant to be that I spend the rest of my life alone, then so be it. Being alone and happy with myself has to be better than being with someone and knowing sooner or later she will break my heart. So I give up!


Ray, I hear your anger and frustration loud and clear. I've been there. Everywhere you go you see happy couples. It seems like you're the only guy in the world who doesn't have someone.

Let's go to the pub and have a brew. Just you and me. Good riddance to women! Who needs 'em! We'll talk sports and politics and bore ourselves silly because deep down we know what we really want and need is love. Deep down we know we'll never give up because to give up on love is to give up on life.

You talk about falling out of love. You fall out of boats, but you don't fall out of love. You fall out of like. Like is that temporary thing, the feeling of newness, infatuation, and sexual attraction. It feels great while it lasts, but when the negatives outweigh the positives, it's over. And when it's over, it feels like you fell out of a boat.

The real deal isn't like that. When you get to the point where you're not playing games with anyone on any level. When you get to the point where you've had it. When you get to the point where you are just living your life, doing what's in you to do. That's when the right person can finally see you and you can see them. That's when you find the love that lasts a lifetime.

That's where you are right now. That's how it happened for me.
