I am not going to lie - this week has been rough but I'm gradually feeling better and better every day. I am slowly recovering from the painful heartbreak and though I know I am not over mrX just yet, I will get there soon. Meanwhile, there have been two major developments in my personal life this week that sped up my healing process, so to speak - one I planned out and the other one happened completely spontaneously.
The first development I am talking about is taking control of the ugly situation and getting revenge. Ah, that sweet revenge on the douchebag who dared to play with my heart. Of course, I wasn't going to do anything over the top like going over to mrX's house in the middle of the night and vandalizing his car with my keys. However, after I realized that not only did he blocked me on Instant Messenger but he also de-friended me and my friend on Facebook, I knew that I just had to do something.
That evening, upon returning home from work, I sat down with my laptop, ready to execute my plan. I went to craigslist.com and without thinking twice proceeded to the Casual Encounters - m4m (male for male) section.
"Hey guys, I am home all alone and so bored. I would love for a hot sexy dude to call me up, because I am ready for some hot phone action. Reply to this ad and I will email you my phone number."
Well, frankly after I posted the ad, I was expecting all the horny gay men in the city to start emailing me back right away but I only got four responses, all of which were hours apart from one another. Of course, revenge is never easy, and I was happy with whatever responses I got. My reply to each and every email was:
"You sound like fun. My number is xxx-xxx-xxxx and my name is mrX... I will be expecting your call ;)"
Bottom line is: I got my revenge (at least I think I did), I didn't do any damage to any property in the process, and now mrX knows that he can't just fuck me over like that and get away. I'd pay money to see the look on his face when he received those phone calls from bored horny men. Maybe next time he's getting ready to pull his wam-bam-thank-you-ma'am act on an unsuspecting girl, he'll think twice.
Another development happened to me on Wednesday, while I was stuck in traffic on the way to work. It was a hot, humid morning, and I was sitting in my car in the middle of a highway, surrounded by a sea of other cars, not moving an inch. The morning commute is simply a bitch sometimes and I was feeling its bitchiness in its fullest. But then something happened that pretty much made my Wednesday.
"Hey, your tail light is out."
The voice was coming from a car next to me, on my left. I cautiously looked over and was pleasantly surprised to see an attractive man who seemed concerned enough to point out the problem with my car.
"Oh thank you... I didn't even realize that. Thanks."
And then we started up a conversation. For the first time in my life, I was actually happy that the cars in front of me weren't moving. I was enjoying making small talk with this guy and judging from a flirtatious smile on his face, he felt the same way. So when he asked me if I was single and if I am then could he have my number, I said yes to both.
As a matter of fact, I just got back from a lovely low-key date with this man (let's call him Jersey Guy). Now, I did not really feel the same type of a connection that I felt on my first date with mrX, but I still had a great time and I won't be too surprised if Jersey Guy asks me out on a second date in the very near future.
Maybe he'll grow on me. Maybe the best is yet to come.
