The grass is greener on the other side

After a set of long drawn out discussions Noodle and I are officially dunzo. I am no relationship expert but as far as I'm concerned we were not compatible due to the DR. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde persona she took on in the few weeks preceding our demise. The complaints, resentment, disappointment and bitterness she directed towards me made it clear what needed to be done.

She is normally a very nice girl though so in trying to make sense of her changes into Mr. Hyde I imagined the following explanation so as to not get dirty with details: Maybe she expected a knight in shining armour riding a stallion to come and whisk her away to a pampered life of luxury and no worries but instead she got me, Shrek, an ogre in rags who throws her on his donkey's back and carries her to a life of hard work for her to earn her keep.

Now this ogre was as entertaining as a rock, he thoroughly enjoyed sitting back and watching the grass grow. Tired of life in the forest, working for her supper and watching grass grow his fair maiden longed to go to the royal balls in the town and be treated as a princess should. To further complicate things there was a line of prince charmings with promises to fill said void in her life. Infuriated that all of her grooming and kisses wasn't turning her stubborn ogre into a prince she started unleash Mr. Hyde upon the ogre's humble forest life.

The ogre realizing he was the cause of all the fair maiden's distress surrendered his hold on her and released her back to her village where she can pursue her dream life with the prince of her choice. It was a hard decision to make but the ogre realizes he will never be a prince nor expect his maiden to live the ogre lifestyle and be happy but she seems to be afraid of change forgetting all of her problems she had with the ogre and wants to come back to the forest. The water is always wetter when the well runs dry.

She will be missed.. This song Ralph Tresvant - do what I gotta do seems most appropriate

Adrian you made me out to sound like a real miserable, high life, love when people do things for me kind of person, thats not true. i might complain alot, but who doesn't, you complain as much as i do. one of the things you hate most is me telling you you are not gentleman enough, because you are not helpful. as far as you concern, you shouldn't help someone until they ask. my problem is this as your girlfriend, i shouldn't have to ask everytime i need you to help me with a heavy bag/container or whatever it is. i would need your help with something and you just stand there watching, and you don't see anything wrong with that. its not just about me, if you were in another relationship with this mentality, you going to get the same result. its comforting to a girl to know her boyfriend got her back, he is always willing. thats all i was saying before you took my advice as me trying to change you. what your little effort in the relationship means to me is, you don't take "US" seriously. i might have gone about handling you not serious the wrong way but there, it happen, and you wanted out just like that...which makes me think even more that you didn't want this, you were just burning time. i will try not to be bitter about this break up because its a part of life...we just have to deal with it the best way possible. i wish you all the best. i would be lying if i said, i hope you find someone soon...so in closing.....take care. love.

Good luck ogre.... I have lots of really nice single friends so let me know if you are looking for a new fair maiden... and I could probably even find some who like watching the grass grow!

Adrian said...

@kg: thanks for the offer but I'll be staying away from fair maidens for a while.

Leon said...

Lemme guess. You're chick was high maintenance. More than likely she was brown, long haired with a big bosom, right? Tell me I'm right.

Adrian said...

sounds like an unfair generalization there leon.. non-brown, short haired with a small bosom girls cam be high maintenance too :d

not that noodle was any of those though :p I would say she was regular mainenance.

Ann (MobayDP) said...
