#16 – Jesse

I could write way more than a few lines on this man. He was the man who taught me how to fall in love. He also then took that fragile love, stomped on it a few million times, and then played keep-away with it. In all fairness, he was a nice guy who didn’t have the heart to tell me that I never had a real chance and thus, kept me hanging for years. Our first date was to a Smashing Pumpkins laser show and I still can’t listen to the band without thinking of him.

  1. I think too many hearbreaks come from men being wimpy or too “nice”. Take, for example, all the guys who decide to break up with a women by not returning her calls or e-mails, letting her eventually figure out that he’s decided not to be in the relationship anymore. Not that I minded. Really. Not at all…

  2. Toni- No, but I think he was conflicted to. He was genuinely attracted to me, but not enough to commit to me. Which doesn’t make it okay, but at 17 and 18, what do we know about these things, right?

    Bex- Oh yeah, I was a sucker for guys who couldn’t love me like I wanted them to love me.

    Caryn- I agree. It’s so much easier to move on from somebody when you hate them. 🙂

  3. I specifically remember a post on a board where Courtney talked about Jesse. I’ll find it.

    “Talking drunk is THE BEST. I used to do it with my first love, Jesse. Ah. Jesse. I loved him. “
