oh babe, I really hate to go…

13 May 2009

What do you do when you find yourself being attracted to someone who’s leaving in two weeks?
I don’t mean moving to a different neighborhood or anything, I mean moving.  Packing everything up and moving hundreds of miles away.  You’re just getting to know someone, to really enjoy them… and then before you can catch your breath and place your feet back on the ground, they’re gone.

I spent a very enjoyable evening last night with one of my bandmates.  A small group of us had decided to go out together… He and I danced a bit, and continued our giggling and flirting from practice.  He’s got a relaxed energy to him that just draws me in. … maybe it’s his smile, or his eyes… Or maybe it’s the way he dances.  Regardless.  I’m becoming smitten with this handsome fellow.

Normally this is when I’d swell up with joy and hope and pink fluffy brain goo…  As awesome as I think this guy is, it doesn’t change the fact that in two short weeks, at the end of this month, he’ll be leaving the Second City and moving to the Capital (and I’m not talking a couple hours away, I’m talking chumming up with Mr. Obama singing “won’t you be my neighbor?”)…  My mind just wants to reach out and go “but, but.. no.. that’s not enough time…”  It wants to search out any and every way to keep him here so I can continue on this twitterpated path.

There’s really nothing I can do in this situation — at least in regards to convincing him to stay.  I’m going to enjoy the time I have with him, which really isn’t hard to do… And when the time comes, I’m going to wish him all the best with the move.  Hopefully we’ll keep in touch.

  • Sadly, I think your entire last paragraph sums up what I would’ve said anyway. It’s a crappy situation, but enjoy the moments you have left.

    I’m of the belief that what is meant to happen in your life, will. So if it’s supposed to turn into something more, distance won’t stop that.

  • True. I generally have that idea too. I think once the pink fluffy brain goo settled some it helped too. One of those post-make out highs… gets ya every time.

    He is a pretty awesome guy, but also really busy too… Hopefully I’ll see him a few more times before he leaves… if not, best of luck on his journey then!

  • Every relationship has its expiration date…sadly, I think it is often sooner than we’d like it to be.

    I am going through something similar, and our impending expiration is not as soon, but it is sooner than I’d like it to be, and it hurts my heart a lot. 🙁

    Anyway, I’m with MinD, enjoy it while you can, and what is meant to be, will be. 🙂

  • Well, it wasn’t a relationship…
    He’s just a guy I like, I enjoy hanging out with… who has too much to do/people to see in too little time.

    It sucks, but yeah. I think I was being just a bit too hopeful in that post…
