Remember when I broke up with my hairdresser several months ago?
I had another breakup this weekend. But this time I was the dumpee.
My manicurist left me. For that "other woman" known as college.
When we were saying goodbye, Anth gave me a big bear hug and said he'd miss me and would let me know when he's back in town. And I almost started crying.
(And it wasn't just because my jeans are all currently so tight that they're literally making me want to cry.)
In retrospect, I think the welling up was because Anthony has been the most consistent man in my life for the past several years.
(Is that sad or sweet? I still haven't decided.)
Every week when I'd see Anthony, he was excited to see me. He'd call me pet names. Tell me how pretty I looked. Compliment a new sweater. Ask about my family and friends. Write "I heart U” in lotion.
(And, no, I did not pay extra for that.)
But now he's gone. So I'm hoping the cosmos decides to do its thing and replace the one consistent guy in my life with another (but this time, one in the form of a boyfriend).
Are you listening, cosmos? I need a new guy in my life. Cuz mama's got really pretty hands just waiting to show off a ring someday soon.
