Waiting For The Other Shoe

Some people have been hurt so badly in relationships both romantic and non-romantic throughout their lives that they are constantly in a state of waiting for the other shoe to drop.  This is an idiom that means to await a seemingly inevitable event.  A person may not enter into a relationship wanting  it to go bad, but they prepare themselves for what they feel will be a most certain end to a connection.  Subconsciously performing early preparation for such a time will make the pain almost bearable.

Dinner For One: The Follow Up

A reader, that shall remain anonymous expressed to me that in my last post titled "Dinner For One" that I came across as being perhaps smug in my Valentine's Day experience. I stated in the post that I "took myself out" and made reference to having "options" that could have taken me out.  My reasoning for dining solo was that I wanted to have a new experience and break away from the tedious repetition that Valentine's Day brings.
