Michelle's T.G.I.Fridays: Another Story, Another Fuck Up

***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.***

Last week, I told an interesting story about Michelle from New Year's Eve in an effort to avoid talking about Terrence. I'd love to avoid it again by linkng to some article from The Frisky, but there is information about her love life that I need to go ahead and post about so it's done and recorded.

I wrote a post about Darren being out of the picture back in December. I was glad to welcome in Terrence because Darren had been so terrible. What he put Michelle through was very similar to what happened between Easy and I back in August, but they were very unlikely to have a happy ending.

Believe it or not, the same thing has happened with Terrence. Seriously, the same thing. He had this other chick he was talking to because he and Michelle were not exclusive. But in the meantime, he was talking to Michelle about the future he saw himself having with her. He expressed to her that if she were into it, they could be together and be so happy and blah blah blah.

Terrence told Michelle he wanted a girlfriend. He didn't want to be the only guy in his Army unit without a girlfriend/fiancee/spouse. While she was considering entering a long-term relationship with this guy and weighing the pros and cons, things didn't end well.  I wrote a post at the beginning of last month about what happened with that. Long story short, he had a girlfriend, he didn't, he expressed an interest in sorting things out with my girl Michelle.

So what happened next? Well, he was full of shit! He didn't have a girlfriend then, but he has one now. That other chick is his girlfriend. After expressing some seriously nutty behavior, he decided that she wasn't crazy per se, she was just crazy for him.

He didn't even tell Michelle he had made this decision with the other girl. He just disappeared. I mean, he had already headed back to his unit, but he was suddenly unable to be reached. And then there was the unfortunate repeat performance of her seeing on Facebook that he was now in a relationship.

So now... they are just friends. Or something horrible like that. And Terrence has a girlfriend. And it's not Michelle. Boy do I know how she feels. Man after man comes to her and tells her all these wonderful things. And even though she fights against the possibility, as soon as she begins to consider it, the rug is pulled from beneath her and they turn out to be full of shit.

And it really sucks that this happened so soon. A guy she was kind of into doing it sucks. A guy that she has loved for years doing the same thing only a month later is even worse. But Michelle is resilient and she will bounce back.

It will be interesting to see exactly how she does that though. She has complained about how there's no one of worth to date or whatever else in Charleston. But she recently decided to stay another year. Yes, Michelle will graduate with her Bachelor's Degree in May, but then she will join a one year Master's Program and stay until May 2012.

I don't know what that means for her love life. But she certainly gets into enough situations even with that fact of graduating soon. But now you know the whole basic story with Terrence, and hopefully we won't hear much about him for a while.
