oops, i did it again

They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

Somebody get the straitjacket.

I think today my friends are probably wishing that I’d finally learn to play it safe, not be so open, and definitely not be so trusting.  I’m beginning to wish the same thing, frankly.

I have done it again:  allowed a man to convince me that he is other than he appears.  The sting is too fresh to relate here now, and there is a possibility he will see this, so I think it best to sum it up this way:  this sucks.

I offer this post, quite simply, to my friends and readers who have felt foolish to have trusted.

You are not alone.

    You know what? I”m assuming your a woman … yes? Listen… there’s a definite gift in your experience here. It hurts, I know, at the same time… you now have an idea what NOT to accept and what to look for and be wary of.

    I know it sucks… and I”m sorry you’ve been through something like this. Hold onto the fact that not all men are like this. You’re not foolish for wanting to believe, the other person is an A$$ for taking advantage of your good nature.

    I’m sorry I must have not clicked the comment box to send me an email. I just got this message now. You are most welcome and I sincerely appreciate the compliment on my blog. I think it’s excellent practice for learning about myself and defining things and lately I’ve met you and some other people on here and it’s very interesting to see all of the exchanges.

    I do my best to have a good head on my shoulders but I’m allowed the nutty days too LOL 🙂 For sure! 🙂
