Taking A Look Back - Part 5|
Some of my friends had come to me, concerned about the current guy I was dating. Apparently, while Jay was visiting me, and I was introducing him to my friends here in Toronto, he had given them “dirty looks” and would come up behind me and wrap his arms around me possessively. At least, that’s the way they took it. I hadn’t really noticed. O.o But, I asked Jay nevertheless, because I just wanted everything to be out in the open, if there were any misunderstandings.
Jay seemed very surprised and a bit taken aback, as _he_ thought that he had gotten along with my friends just fine, and didn’t remember giving anyone any dirty looks, at least not intentionally.
That does seem to s ound familiar. I have noticed that people can be so defensive and thye can easily take something for "a dirty look"
As for this relationship...yeah it probably was too soon. I went about 6 years before having another boyfriend. That was all because I was in trainwreck relationship after trainwreck relationship after trainwreck relationship. Sure, six years was a bit long (I never looked back to my non-single status) but I think there needs to be a buffer between relationships. Gives you time to sort out the baggage left over (because everyone has baggage left over) and then maybe move on to someone new. You are dead in the water if you have baggage with you.
