The Vortex


The cosmos know just when it's finally ok for the smurfs of dating hell to return. You know what I mean... you've firmly decided that he's not a threat, so much so that you don't even think about him. In just this past week the cosmos have reminded me of a lot of douchebags via technology. I suppose that's to be expected with all of this social interconnectedness. My only conclusion is that these are some of my tests. Yes, the cosmos are testing my sanity to see if I will do the same things over again expecting the same results. You decide:

Smurf who I dated briefly over the summer "tagged" me in a photo and then must have changed his mind because I couldn't find the picture. This is odd for many reasons, but my reaction was to remove him from my friends. Deleted.

Buble smurf started to chat me up on FB for no apparent reason. Deleted.

My First Smurf found me on FB and wanted to add me as a friend. Now this requires just a bit of background... He was my first and he was older, had his shit together, I really liked him. Then, out of the blue, he just stopped communicating with me at all. It was over. I found out through a mutual friend that, unfortunately, he liked someone else just as much. He cheated on me through the whole thing and he was going to be with her. I haven't seen or heard from him since and now he wants to be my friend?! ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? Delete.

Now you may be thinking, "Hanna, you made the same decision for each of these instances. Isn't that the first part of the definition of insanity? What are you expecting?" I'm expecting to never hear from any of these guys again. And that feels good. I'm also considering getting rid of FB....
