I never did like breaking up with people. You see, I have a problem with rejection. I do not like to be rejected. Who does, right? It makes me feel small, unimportant and unwanted. Yuck. Rejection is bad. I do not like to reject others because I know how it feels (I take the "do unto others" thing VERY seriously!). As a result, I often get stuck in relationships with men, women, long distance providers and can never get out of them.
In fact, before the German, the majority of my relationships ended with either a mutual acknowledgement that the relationship was over or I was dumped (which is why I don't like rejection!). Wait . . . is it strange that I would rather be rejected than reject others . . .?
Anyway, I am now really in agony because I have to break up with someone . . . my realtor. He is a great guy but . . . well it is not just not working.
I think Realtor Guy knows that it is not working. He keeps calling and no one picks up the phone. The German and I look at the phone, "You pick it up! No you!" When I finally broke down, answered the phone and spoke with him last week, he made an off-handed comment, "I thought you were angry with me!" Then, he made that nervous laugh we all make when we are afraid that we have spoken the truth.
Realtor Guy, you are really nice and funny. You build beautiful kitchens, and I would love to keep this relationship going, but I just can't. It's not you, its me. We are in very different places right now. You are in a place where you want me to spend a lot of money and I am in place where I have no money. Do you see the problem?
