Michelle's T.G.I.Fridays: Another Layer Of Bullshit Added To The Relationship

***Michelle is a girl that grew up next door to me and we attended the same church. Now she's in her early 20s and living the single life. She goes on these dates that are either lovely or horrific. She's slightly terrified at the thought of committing to someone any time soon. And of course, she has the occasional man who really catches her eye and her heart.***

Hello blog readers! I usually don't actually request comments on this blog.

Why would I? What would you comment on? You don't know these people, you only get a glimpse into part of their lives one day a week every couple of weeks.

But I'm going to tell you what happened with Terrence and Michelle and I need to know if anyone ele's bullshit meter goes off.

Last week, I posted about how Terrence had a girlfriend. He had just fit the first girl to say yes into this idea of what he thinks he wanted.

Turns out that was wrong. He doesn't have a girlfriend.

That's what he told Michelle when he re-surfaced after not speaking to her or responding to texts for like the entire week between Christmas and New Year's Eve.

He explained that the other chick who he said was now giving a chance to see what could be had a really strong crazy streak (no surprise there, she wanted to be your girlfriend even though she had no existing relationship with you).

And then he explained that he had been dealing with her craziness for all those days and didn't want to have to deal with two women while he handled that.

Apparently, when he sent Michelle the text saying he felt he and she should stop talking, he did that out of anger. Towards the other chick. Yes, he said that with a straight face.

He was frustrated with the crazy chick and took it out on Michelle.

He cut Michelle off for a couple of days. To talk to the crazy chick for a couple of  days.

When he re-surfaced, there was no discussion of how he got rid of the crazy chick. He never said, "don't worry, she's gone."

The good news in all of this is that Michelle is pretty furious with Terrence. She's not just giving him the benefit of the doubt.

A tiny part of me wonders if she should give him the benefit of the doubt.

My mom says that you'll be alone forever if you never give a man a second chance.

But Michelle and Terrence have some years of history behind them so they are way past a second chance.

I guess we'll see what happens now. Terrence heads back out to his Armed Forces gig soon if he hasnt' already left.

And Michelle heads back to school on Sunday. I'm sure she would rather focus on her last semester of college rather than all this bullshit she's been through with these men over the last couple of weeks.

Heck, she may even be glad there's only the one guy to hang out with in Charleston.
