Lived with them on and off for years. I had a lot of different apartments, but their house was always home base.
I went to NYC and tried to set up house at least 3 times during this time frame.
Messed the eff UP. He made me laugh. He was an outsider too.
Charming. Tight family. Hard worker and romantic. He broke up with me and I lost it.
An actOr. And... mime. (Wow.) Extremely religious. Seriously odd family dynamic. He broke up with me and I lost. it.
He was married/separated. 21 years my senior. Mutual separation. I walked out the door one day and another girl was standing there about to knock on it. I left, she came in. End of story.
I had nowhere else to go. I never loved him. He'd been a great friend, but he wanted more, and I felt guilty for mooching off him for so long, so... relationship. Bleh. Ew. Yuck. I broke up with him and he lost it.
