Way back in April 2010, I found and lost Mr Buble in the Husband Department.
We never actually got married, infact, his agent never did respond to my phone, cell, email or written invitations for pre engagement – pre marriage – pre sex dates!
Ofcourse, the lack of response really isn’t suprising considering he was engaged to be married.
Following the age old principle that we all use to help ourselves recover in times of romantic challenge ‘life must go on, go catch another fish’, (cause theres so many of them in the sea) I turned my eyes to Shemar Moore.
Turns out hes probably Gay.
When we choose our partner, how do we do it?
Do our personal preferences sometimes lead us to failure in the romance department?
Once we realise we messed up, (like the times we walk away from almost every conversation feeling worse about ourselves) how long does it take us to correct our mistakes?
Do we hang on for dear life fearing the end, digging a deeper, more difficult hole to climb out of?
Do we let go, grieve and allow our experience to reshape our priorities and preferences in future ‘partner picking’?
That doesnt sound quite right. ‘Partner picking’, as if you are in a field, trolloping about taste testing the fruit off trees.
That’s absolutely not how I mean it to sound.
It’s a fine line, the Romance Department. Selection, Checkout, Returns, Warranty, the sometimes dreaded Consumer Feedback. There aren’t too many of us that get excited hearing about how we could be functioning more efficiently – especially for purposes we weren’t created for. (In my case cooking.)
It seems spending more time defining what it is we’re looking for, and then researching the product a little more before investing is probably a good way to go.
