Ex BF (4:00:23 AM): DO you think McCain stands a chance?
Me (4:00:48 AM): honestly, it’s any man’s chance now.
Me (4:00:57 AM): either way, this country is screwed
Ex BF (4:01:17 AM): LOL That’s a pessimistic way of seeing things
Me (4:01:34 AM): well, I never claimed to be little miss sunshine
Ex BF (4:01:47 AM): LOL I see
Me (4:02:05 AM): you act like this is shocking news

Ex BF (4:04:45 AM): I do
Ex BF (4:04:58 AM): LOL I remember you hate walking
Me (4:05:04 AM): you bastard
Me (4:05:38 AM): I think you did it on purpose last time
Me (4:05:41 AM): but whatever.
Ex BF (4:05:48 AM): I didn’t do it on purpose
Ex BF (4:05:58 AM): I really had no place in particular to go to
Ex BF (4:06:11 AM): I just wanted to hang out since I haven’t seen you in a while
Me (4:06:46 AM): You got me at a bad time. I had been working 7 days a week for 14+ hours during the week
Me (4:06:56 AM): I was tired
Me (4:07:00 AM): and it was hot
Me (4:07:08 AM): and I got really irritated
Ex BF (4:07:17 AM): I could see that
Ex BF (4:07:31 AM): You kpet going on and on about the food too
Ex BF (4:07:35 AM): *kept
Me (4:07:48 AM): ugh, that terrible restaraunt
Ex BF (4:07:59 AM): lol It was just a diner
Ex BF (4:08:07 AM): I never really expect much from diner food
Me (4:08:11 AM): wouldn’t buy a bottle of water from them
Me (4:08:49 AM): but not expensive diner food! shit. I could have went to my fave thai restaraunt for those prices
Ex BF (4:09:34 AM): lol You’re such a queen about things
Me (4:09:55 AM): and your point?
Me (4:10:08 AM): I like to be comfortable
Me (4:10:18 AM): nothing wrong with that
Ex BF (4:10:49 AM): Would you be comfortable anywhere in the world or does it take a lot for you to be comfortable?
Me (4:11:12 AM): it depends on how you figure “a lot”
Ex BF (4:11:29 AM): lol Admit it, you’re high maintenance
Me (4:11:32 AM): I know there are places I will never be comfortable
Me (4:11:46 AM): ha, you haven’t seen high maintenance
Me (4:11:51 AM): truuuust me.
Me (4:11:56 AM): I am so far from that
Ex BF (4:12:17 AM): I went out with Nicole for 3 years. I know high maintenance enough
Me (4:12:29 AM): don’t compare me to her
Me (4:12:35 AM): we are two different people
Me (4:12:44 AM): sorry to disappoint you.
Ex BF (4:13:13 AM): I’m not comparing anyone. What I’m saying is that I know what high maintenance is
Me (4:14:08 AM): LOL if you think that I’m high maintenance, then you really have no clue
Ex BF (4:14:50 AM): And why’s that? Just because you know people worse than yourself?
Me (4:14:56 AM): I am really laid back and chill…I just hate to be uncomfortable. I don’t demand to eat at the best places or dress in the most expensive clothes
Me (4:15:25 AM): I will go outside in rollers and pjs
Me (4:15:33 AM): lol
Ex BF (4:15:46 AM): LOL That’s nothing to be bragging about
Me (4:16:17 AM): I don’t give a fuck
Me (4:16:18 AM): lol
Me (4:16:29 AM): that is my point
Ex BF (4:16:56 AM): lol Yeah, but how much does it take for you to be comfortable though?
Me (4:17:20 AM): a high maitenance girl would never do that, wouldn’t be caught dead without every perfect hair in place, and every daub of makeup juust right (don’t even wear makeup)
Me (4:17:31 AM): depends on the situation
Ex BF (4:18:06 AM): That’s not true. It’s not about how you look; it’s about how much you can deal with not having things done your way
Me (4:18:33 AM): that just makes one a spoiled brat, and I am.
Me (4:19:09 AM): that is one thing I cannot deny.
Ex BF (4:19:13 AM): lol That also makes you high maintenance– sorry to break it to ya
Me (4:19:41 AM): I like things to be done my way—which is usually in the best interest of all involved
Me (4:19:46 AM): LOL ok, sure
Ex BF (4:20:01 AM): Okay. You don’t have to believe me
Me (4:22:55 AM): whatever, doesn’t matter
Me (4:23:28 AM): well, I googled “high maintenance woman”
Me (4:23:45 AM): while being fussy is one aspect of it, it is not the say all end all
Me (4:24:06 AM): and it seems to be up for individual interpretation
Ex BF (4:25:08 AM): LOL Deena. It’s cool. Everybody answers has no one to answer to but themselves
Me (4:25:39 AM): it just irks me you would call me that when i know i’m not
Me (4:25:53 AM): I hate when people have all kinds of assumptions about me
Me (4:26:09 AM): you’re the first person ever to say that
Ex BF (4:26:16 AM): If you know it’s not true, why are you stressing it?
Me (4:26:17 AM): and I have been called way worse than that
Me (4:26:24 AM): lol
Me (4:26:28 AM): like I said
Me (4:26:33 AM): it annoyed me
Me (4:26:40 AM): so I needed to get to the bottom of it
Ex BF (4:26:44 AM): It annoys you because there’s some truth to it
Me (4:26:55 AM): ok Dr. Phil
Me (4:26:58 AM): lol
Ex BF (4:27:22 AM): DOn’t Dr Phil me. I said you can believe what you want
Me (4:28:00 AM): I know it
Me (4:28:28 AM): which is why I am a proud member of “save the unicorns”
Me (4:28:28 AM): lol
Ex BF (4:28:40 AM): lol okay
Me (4:29:25 AM): and calling me names must make you feel good, huh? what is the problem, really?
Ex BF (4:29:50 AM): I’m not calling you names. I think you’re cool, but I still think you’re high maintenance
Me (4:30:31 AM): ok, and that means what exactly in relation to me…?
Me (4:31:14 AM): if I am cool overall, why does that one thing make such a difference?
Ex BF (4:31:36 AM): That I’d enjoy your comapny a lot more if you didn’t complain so much.
Me (4:32:32 AM): well, if you feel that way, you’re not in any way obligated to hang out with me.
Horacian7 (4:32:49 AM): *company
Ex BF (4:33:07 AM): I’m not. You think I’m trying to put you down and I’m not
Ex BF (4:33:17 AM): It’s cool. I’m sorry if I upset you
Me (4:34:34 AM): it’s fine; I’m so over it.
Me (4:35:56 AM): the whole situation just annyoed me, mostly because of how you approached it. I hate people tellling me things about myself with such finality. You really don’t know me as well as you may think you do.
Me (4:36:03 AM): *annoyed
Ex BF (4:36:21 AM): Dude, I didn’t claim to know anything
Me (4:36:35 AM): that’s the attitude you have
Ex BF (4:37:03 AM): NO, I’m just saying forget it. I’m sorry I said anything
Me (4:37:19 AM): LOL
Me (4:38:08 AM): no, you’re not sorry. Or rather you’re sorry I made such a fuss about it, but I suppose you expected that and all.
Ex BF (4:39:16 AM): I just said what I had to say. Nobody has to take anything I say for gospel truth. You think it’s bullshit and that’s your right
Me (4:40:57 AM): well, you’re entitled to your opinion. I just don’t have to like it.
Ex BF (4:41:50 AM): Okay
Me (4:43:55 AM): urrgh. why do ya have to be so difficult??
Ex BF (4:44:18 AM): I’m not being difficult. I’m just chillin
Me (4:44:36 AM): lol ok
Ex BF (4:50:20 AM): K, Goodnight, Deena
Me (4:50:27 AM): night
Ex BF (4:50:27 AM): I’ll catch you later
Me (4:50:31 AM): maybe
Me (4:50:38 AM): see ya on the flip side
Ex BF (4:51:36 AM): Girl, if you were ever on that side, you wouldn’t be talking to me the way you do. Later
Ex BF went away at 4:51:45 AM.
Mother fucker went away before I could respond.
I’m sure there will be more conversations with this ex, so stary tuned.
