BetsyG reflects on a dream, alcholism, and matchmaking.
I write about my past relationships with men. How can I do that without worrying about hurting them? And what kind of silly man would date me, a writer?
What do you do at the end of the affair? I clear out nearly every reminder of the guy who broke up with me. I just can’t help myself. But I took it a step further with a recent breakup.
BetsyG thought she was out of things to write about, but it turns out she had plenty to say about Mike, a birthday present, and a dilemma. What do you think I should have done?
Mike had broken up with me to go back to his ex-wife, to see if he could make his marriage work. Should I contact him one more time before I start dating? There were some surprising reasons why not, as it turns out.
If you’ve ever had your heart broken, you know it’s not easy to put your heart out there again. This essay is about BetsyG’s experience with heartbreak and the fear with which she faced the next potential love.
