I just saw on Facebook that Jasper's girlfriend went to Colorado with him this weekend. This was a trip for school that has been booked since last fall. I'm sitting at the airport waiting to leave for Vegas and am trying not to cry. And failing. Damnit I was doing better! But was afraid of getting blindsided by something like this.
Damn, I'm sorry.

My only other long term relationship--we broke up like 8 years ago (holy crap...) after 7 years together--had a pic of a woman on his profile recently and I gotta say, I still was taken aback a little. Even though I'm freaking married.

We're not fb friends. He tried to add me in '08 when I joined. Nope. Nope. Nope.

Been an interesting weekend with my houseguests. We started talking to them about wedding planning and all that goes into it and how much stuff costs and my SIL ended up crying. I don't think they have considered much at all realistically.

Now they want to switch schools b/c they hate ONU. What it actually is, is *she* hates it because she gets along with nobody. Sounds like she's the floor b1tch that freaks out when anyone makes noise. She's isolated herself because she has no roommate and spends all her time with the fiance. Socially, she's never been stable. Doesn't seem to get that the problem is her.

Holy cow, did I have one crazy, freaky night! Some tequila, a bon-fire... we've done things I've NEVER... well, never mind. Happy Saturday!
So I have been out in River North for dinner and drinks with girl friends. Craft cocktails by mixologists. The neighborhood is swarming with 20-30 somethings in green and very drunk and rowdy.
So upon reflection ( somewhat drunken but still...), it occurred to me that what you were talking about with the bon-fire was singing Kumbaya and making s'mores?

She's not trying to distance herself. She doesn't seem interested to respond to your rant. My take. Sure sounds like a rant. Accusing, veering off subject from gays to the military, etc.
Free country and all that.
I guess if you spout it you think it means you're on subject.
Seems that if he were talking gay stuff you would be all over that.

She is so NOT ready to get married. So what's the plan for after they do the deed? They going to move in to your spare room and live while they go to school locally then?

Maybe she should start (now) applying for school elsewhere, like maybe in another state (maybe a couple states away) for the fall semester. Seriously, I'm not being a smarta$$ now, I think it would do her (anyone really) to get far enough away from home that they can't return easily/often.

It pretty much forces them to grow the hell up and deal with real life (as real as college gets) and do stuff like make friends, compromise, learn to work with others, get a job and earn money...and on and on.

Hey guys. So I'm in Vegas! I had a great time last night playing craps with my boss and her husband. Today had its ups and downs both at the tables and in general, but the weather here is BEAUTIFUL and I had a beer at Serendipity 3 (no, it's not just ice cream! at least not here) and sat outside and people-watched and cheered myself up. Getting ready to go out tonight and see some old friends. Happy St. P's Day!

So I saw something on Facebook today that made me trace back a timeline.

Former classmate:

1st date: 2/2
Status "In a relationship": 2/4
Last post mentioning her name: 2/16
Post addressing another chick as "baby": 2/26
As of today, neither one is on his friend list.
As of today, he's checking chicks out on a site called MeetMe(and its getting auto-posted to Facebook)

I recognize this. It is the Social media version of ADHD.

Woooo!! Vegas is a great place to forget about stuff...unless you live/have a history there, then you just kinda avoid it. Don't ask me how I know this.:D

Yeah, I hear you... it's both for me. But I've been pretty good about putting the memories/history in the past. I had a good time tonight, even though it's WAY too late and I'm going to wish I'd gone to sleep hours ago when the alarm goes off.

Re: TOnka's post. It really isn't about social media, I think. Imagine how this guy probably is in real life -- all jazzed about his new girlfriend (calling her "Girlfriend" after two days of knowing her, let's say), telling friends about her, maybe introducing them, and two weeks later, it's over and he's onto another woman, and repeates the exact same behavior.
