I am many things, but one thing I am not is someone who goes back to any past relationship, be it friendship, lover, or casual fling. You see, when I am done, I am done.
There is no friendship after a love affair, no knocking on my door after a friendship has been squashed, no “hey, I am here to see what’s up again” after a casual tryst.
This isn’t about holding grudges or being stubborn, nor is it about not understanding why things didn’t work out. It is quite the opposite, it is about having understood why things didn’t work out, about learning the lessons, doing the work required to heal, and then finally moving on.
Yes, people change, but by the time my relationships are over, people have gotten a second chance, and sometimes even a third. The way I see it is we had our time, we parted for reasons known to both of us, and now we move forward separately. Life is too short to repeat anything, especially patterns.
So you see, it all comes full circle: when I am done, I am done, nothing more, nothing less. -tM
When couples fight, hilarity ensues. What brilliant comedic timing. -tM
What ever happened to the creative pick-up? I remember when I used to roll my eyes at these little gimmicky approaches, and now I would welcome them in a society so full of social avoidance and its lack lustre approach to dating. -tM

I always examine the way people choose to leave my life, their exit conveys a lot about who they are, and what qualities they exhibit as human beings. I feel that exits say more about you then entrances. and oddly enough that is how people end up remembering you.
I always make a conscious effort to leave with dignity and grace. And when I do leave, I leave for good. There is no going back. I never revisit what I left behind. -tM
The cynic in me thinks that these words are just a ploy to have you take off all your clothes, yet the romantic in me wants to believe in this kind of forever after. -tM

"Where there is passion, intelligence, and generosity, there is always chemistry." - Luca Guadagnino
I would have never thought of describing chemistry as such. I like it. -tM
