Catch Me Elsewhere
I’ve been going back and forth about writing this every since you first posted that you were accepting submissions for your “Single Because” series. No one wants to put themselves out there, especially when it is to admit fault, however, I think that my “Single Because” story is the same as that of many women, who are to afraid to say that they are single because they are
That felt like a weight has been taken off of my shoulders. Yes, I am single because I am crazy and I do way too much in relationships. Let me explain what I mean.
In relationships, I want to spend all my time with my man. I mean, all of it. I have lost jobs because I would rather stay home with him on his off days, take him lunch every day and just be all up under him 24/7. Now I know that some of you may say, “why don’t you just make him lunch?” Yes, that sounds like the logical answer but I need to see what is going on with my man at work and make sure that any woman who may think she wants to get with him, knows that he has a woman.
Besides being under my man 24/7, I check his phone, email and social media. I am that girl, who will inbox any woman who likes too many of my man’s pics and by too many, I mean, more than 2. Hell, I really don’t think that he should have any female friends on his social media pages at all but that has never worked in any relationship that I have been in.
I make sure that my man always looks good, which has included me laying out his clothes every day or buying what I want him to wear. I have also been guilty of throwing out one of my exes complete wardrobe and buying all new everythang. It may seem extreme but he was appreciative…at the time. When he broke up with me, I made sure that he wasn’t leaving with anything that I bought, which meant that I cut one pants leg off of every pair of pants and jeans, one sleeve off of every shirt, the ass out of every pair of underwear and the toes out of every pair of socks. You can leave me but you will never leave with anything that I have receipts for and I keep the receipts to everything.
If I even have an inkling that my man may have something else going on, I have been known to follow him, show up when he’s out with his friends and confront women who are around or who are smiling too much in his face.
I know, I am a bit excessive but I just can’t help myself. They say that the first step is to admit that you have a problem and I know what my problem is and I have even seen a therapist, thus the reason why I am single. I am single because I become a crazy woman when I am in relationships and until I can figure out the reason why I become so obsessed, it is better that I just stay by myself.
