Dating ex boyfriend

Then I noticed how he would speak to the servers and cab drivers; everything was on his terms. He had almost charmed me into believing that he was respecting me, so close!

That brought me back to the realization that money can’t buy class, and a good man treats everyone he meets with equal respect no matter their profession.

I’ve always shied away from the "finance guy." New York City is filled with them; suits tailored perfectly, cologne permeating the nostrils from 7 feet away, hair coifed entirely too much for comfort…need I say more?

I get it, the whole sweet and simple way of life can be enticing—but it’s not realistic.

Life is not all flowers and sunshine, and when the going gets tough, these guys often freeze, deer in the headlights style.

His mysterious persona read to them as bored and unapproachable. I told my ex that I was really into camping, and next thing I knew, we were packing a tent, kitchen supplies, and sleeping bags into my trunk on our way toward Michigan.

I soon discovered that his brooding ways meant I could no longer have fun at any social function. My sisters snickered, they didn’t think I could last.

Just as things heated up, he received a job opportunity in Chicago.

Fast forward to his departure, a tearful goodbye at the subway stop in Brooklyn and the confusion of “what we would be” still lingering in the air.

Lesson learned: if you’re going to go the distance with a man, find that man who will drop everything to come visit you, because you are worth it.

If he doesn’t see that then he isn’t the right man for you!

He took me to all the hip fancy restaurants and always gave the server his card before I could catch him.

I had never had anyone spoil me in this way before; I felt like a princess!

The boyfriend’s mom is a tricky beast to tame; you have to be warm and complimentary, while showing that you can stand your own ground.
