Hookup a man who has been hurt

opinion

My current girlfriend is beautiful, smart, and generous.

One day I was at my buddies house and his wife was putting on this princess act, like he had to be her servant. It made me realize that my girl was rare and a catch and that I wanted to lock that down. I want to be in my own space. We would stay in bed for a long time and just talk and laugh.

She was kind of acting like a girlfriend already, and I liked it, so I went with it. I had a health scare. There was no difference for me. Finally, she ended it because she wanted to focus on finding someone who wanted more.

One girl I was seeing really had her life together — she was classy, she owned a home on her own and was responsible with her life. She always listened when I talked about my day instead of having that glazed over look. It was nice to have someone really care a lot about me, even the boring stuff. She was the first girl I really wanted more from. She was wife material.

For me it was when I met her coworkers. I caught her at the tail end of a work happy hour and we were going to hang out that night, but I ended up staying and talking to a lot of them. It was clear from all their conversations that she was very well-liked and respected.
