Yeah, yeah. I have been an asshole as of late. No, really! It's true! I have been alouf, distant, isolating myself, uncaring, unsympatheic, selfish (yes, I too was shocked at this one), stuborn, passive, self-centered, blah, blah, blah.
You know, guy stuff.
So anyway, I have unwittingly created a huge distance between my girlfriend(?) and I, and it took me almost a month to realise this. We haven't talked to each other during that time. I don't even know if she remembers my name anymore. There was no fight. No argument. No unreasonable demands. No fight for the remote. Nadda. It was more or less, something that just happened (Yeah, that sounds lame to me too, but it is what happened). I mean, we have gone days without talking (we live pretty far apart from each other), so it was no biggie at first... then it became a situation where I just didn't care if I spoke to her or not. Complacent, ya know? So...... a couple of weeks later, she calls and I missed it. Didn't call back (Asshole = Me). She tried once more by email, and this time I replied "I'm just not feeling talkitive, is all" (You ever have one of those momments when your reply to something seems to be so perfect/rational/sensitive/informative, only to mull it over later and realise "whoops"?).
So, with foot firmly planted in mouth, I am busting my brain trying to figure out how in the hell am I going to fix this mess?
(Ladies... I'm countin' on ya! Married guys...c'mon, you have LOTS of experience in this. Help a guy out.)
