I need a new laundromat


I'm a realist. I've said it before. I'll say it again. I'm a realist. I know a red flag when I see it. I recognize the sting as it bitch slaps me across the face. The laundromance hit a spin cycle that can only get out of control.
For the sake of protecting myself I will not go into details. However, I know when I'm not compatible with a person. I'll cite lifestyle as the cause for hanging this romance out to dry.
I am not an authority on relationships. Nor do I fully understand the proper protocol for dating. Perhaps there isn't a rule book. I have never been inclined to play by anyone's rules. I make them up as I go. However, I do have a stern set of expectations. I know what I need. And what I don't need is for someone create drama for me. What I don't need is to get lectured on maturity. What I don't need is for someone to change their demeanor on a dime.
That all being said, you can all return to your regularly scheduled programming. This laundromance has been preempted with reality: sponsored by Red Flag "The gut feeling you should always trust."

  1. Many of us shoot ourselves in the foot. We constantly undermine and sabotage ourselves just when life APPEARS to be going in the right direction. There are myriad reasons for that and I invented all of them.

    BUT, when it comes to gut feelings about personal safety, you have no choice but to react.

    If you need, I have some cousins that are quite adept at rearranging kneecaps. "Just sayin'"

    Take care
    me

  2. Yeah, this laundromance got way off course last week. There've been things I kept to myself as a means to keep positive, but the gut overrules what my heart yearns

  3. In the words of Dr. Seuss:

    “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own.
    And you know what you know. You are the GAL who'll decide where to go.”

    I'm glad you followed your "gut instinct."
