you know this guy is a disaster. so why keep seeing him? can you say ‘train wreck?” Still something keeps you there. Loneliness. Physical attraction. You know this is over. So what is it?
what happened? he was drinking Jim beam, like your ex. Something to do with that whole picture… he said things like “I’m done.” and “If I had that this would be over…” or “there’s a firestation up in the mtns with really old fire engines, I’m just going to close the garage doors, start the motors, sit back.”
and what caused all that? his job, the end of his marriage, his lack of friends…? why do you care? it’s his life to throw away. how difficult to try to make him see value in it.
