The Modern Day Fairy Godmother has reached its 100th post! Thank you to everyone who has been there during this journey.
It has been almost 8 months since my breakup with Doug. That’s 8 months of growth that I truly needed.
From having some rough times trying to find the guy for me recently, I have taken a hard look at why it hasn’t worked out with people. Usually, one would think that their ex would be the only person for them if it wasn’t working with anyone else. However, I know that this guy wasn’t the one for me for one main reason:
Doug and I forced something that wasn’t there.
It’s strange for me to say but I have realized that it was true. He and I started out as friends but I think that we both wanted a relationship so badly that we took the qualities we admired as friends to be something that was to be admired for a relationship.
Doug and I both wanted the same things from a relationship but did we have anything truly in common? Barely. He was a more outdoorsy guy who was about eating grub while I am a city girl who knows the value of table manners. It seemed great at the beginning because he and I got swept up in being in a relationship that when the initial months settled, it was hard to accept the fact that we were two very different people wanting very different things. Our priorities were polar opposite and our ideals no longer matched.
So, when that fairytale ended, it was like waking up from a vivid dream. It seemed so real but yet, it wasn’t.
Now, I know that I need someone who has enough differences to keep it interesting but enough similarities to be able to relate to me.
It’s fun being The Modern Day Fairy Godmother but it’s annoying to be patient in order to be Cinderella.
