Ok, so I just found out a really good friend just got back with her ex. Though some people might actually consider this a moment to celebrate, I find myself slapping my forehead at the decisions of some people. Why do good people, worthwhile people, nice people, attractive people insist on getting back with people that aren't worth the semen laced booger of a hooker. Really, people have been hurt and by hurt, I mean cheated on numerous times, not respected and actually told so to their faces. Really, apparently society is addicted to misery or maybe it's the sense of hope and second, third, fourth, and fifth chances that seem so appealing. I mean seriously. I've seen a trend of good people making bad decisions and yes this is a judgment call and guess what, like the last times with these particular persons, I'm betting on me because trends and the phenomenon of a vicious cycle dictates that this shit won't work, ESPECIALLY when you've already gotten past that little thing called a second chance and the person fucked up anyways.
Some people say love is blind and that may be true, but I'd add that love can have learning deficiencies, doesn't study history or market trends and definitely has a severe case of denial. Oh, and might I point out that I'm referring to the love people in dysfunctional relationships refer to. Call me new school, but I'm one to thin that if it didn't work the first time, odds are it won't work the second time either. Getting back with someone who cheated on you is giving that person a get out of jail free card. It's telling them they fucked up, but not enough for there to be consequences so go ahead and fuck up again. You could make a case that these people are weak and that they have become dependant on the positive aspects of their relationships but staying in said situations is just asking for more bitch slaps courtesy of Mr. Reality Check. Here's the best part though, since these people are getting cheated on continuously, that means that they're pretty much flirting with VD even if they are monogamous. Imagine that, all the fun of herpes or clamidia without having to do all that fucking around, isn't that convenient?
I dunno, maybe I just need a massive dose of chill pills or maybe I just won't ever understand good people staying in shitty situations and deciding to do so because of love, because last I checked, that's ignorance, not love. I wish them the best though and may they prove me way fucking wrong, but as with boxing matches, I may root for one side, but that doesn't mean I'll bet for that same side.
