I’m 27 and I finally understand country music.
My high school sweetheart and I broke up over four years ago, yet she’s all I can think about. I have dated tons of girls since we broke up and I’ve had several serious girlfriends, but nobody compares to Brooke…the one that got away. Every night, I think of her sweet embrace as I drift off. I reminisce of the days I woke up to her sweet kiss when she left for work. She loved me selflessly and I managed to ruin the best thing that ever happened to me. Now I’m left wondering if I will ever love again. I know it can happen…she has since married someone else. I recently heard that the average woman dates 24 guys before finding the one. Well, I’ve probably gone out with at least 50 girls since I broke up with the love of my life and so far it’s all been in vain. I’m thankful for the five years of my life when I experienced true love, but now I’m left with a void that may never be filled. I constantly daydream of running away to some exotic destination in South America or maybe some less traveled Eastern European destination. However, I know that what I am seeking will not be found there. I am simply running away from my problem, rather than confronting it. Every weekend, I go out drinking with my friends, who all happened to be married or in serious relationships. I’m the last man standing. I have so much love to give…so many experiences I want to share. Am I doomed to live a lonely existence? I guess only time will tell. To everyone out there who has lost “the one”…I feel your pain. After all, I am writing this because my ex’s bday is May 3rd. I guess some people never drift far from your thoughts…
