Don’t Become Another One Of The Statistics! (Part 2)

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Don’t Become Another One Of The Statistics!


It’s that time of year again.

But this time for me?

It’s much more painful.

In Part 1 I told you how hard I find it congratulating friends who “take the plunge.” Given what I tell you all the time here, I’m sure you understand my consternation.

But this season?

It’s even worse.

This time one of my romantic friends did it.

And did it at the worst time possible.

While every emotional influence was wrong for her.

Of course this is very hard for me to watch, because being with me as long as she was, she should have known better. But as I always say, none of my lovers are my disciples.

Being in a relationship with me?

It doesn’t make you a Romantic Friendships groupie.

Naturally, since I hope the best for you though?

I still desire to save you from yourself if possible.

In this particular case though, extenuating circumstances got the better of her. A whole confluence of influences were brought to bear on her at the same time.

She had recently broken up with me.

She was being messed with by a medical condition.

Though she barely even knew this guy?

Their relationship started in the midst of stressful circumstances.

Remember how Keanu Reeve’s character in the movie Speed falls in love with Sandra Bullock’s character? The stressful circumstances they face as the plot thickens, actually cause them to “fall in love.”

My romantic friend and her new partner?

I can just imagine how he was “there for her.”

With that kind of powerful emotions in play?

It was almost inevitable they would bond.

It has been said when you first “fall in love,” 50% of your intelligence leaves your body. The last thing you want to do when that’s the case, is make major life decisions during it.

What happened by Speed 2?

The lovers’ relationship was in shambles.

While I wish my romantic friend better than this?

Statistically I don’t have my fingers crossed for her.

How about you? Do you struggle when you see friends of yours tie the knot like this, or are you still naïve enough to think everything will work out alright for them?
