Can you unbreak a heart?

I wish there was a way to corral all the bad girls in Atlanta together and make them face the trail of broken hearts they left behind. There are so any wounded men walking around this city. Talk about The Walking Dead – dead inside!

I have heard a lot of horror stories from men who are left bitter, scorned, gun-shy. They tell me they are in no hurry to take a leap of faith on another “pathetic broad” – (That’s right, women often become broads or females post bad breakups).

I have personally had to listen to a man call his ex Satan on our first date. Another, said his ex-wife had no soul. Of course, I sympathize and empathize with broken-hearted men. I have been there before too! I just don’t know if I can handle the challenge of un-breaking a guy’s heart, restoring his faith in women again. It just sounds exhausting! (I’m lazy, I know)

What can you do when you meet someone great but they are not open to anything meaningful because of what the last person did to them? Do you think waiting it out and proving you are different then their ex is a smart move?

Have you ever met someone who is suffering from a heartbreak, yet they want still want to date you and see where it goes?

Did you ever go through a bitter phase? How did you get through it? Did you put dating on the back burner or were you actively seeking a rebound person?

Golden Corral has the best salad bar in my area. I can eat very clean there, and get my salad my way.

LOL @ Uncle Foote and C.

@HST: That might be the first time I’ve seen or heard Golden Corral and clean in the same sentence. Just kidding, but seriously, after the E.Coli outbreak, I avoid it like, well, the plague.

Sorry I missed out on the convo, but I had to grab some food. (All that talk made me hungry!) ;) Leggs is correct though, you get your JD when you finish law school. After the passing of the bar, some lawyers use Esq. after their names to denote that they have, in fact, passed the Bar and are licensed to practice.

HST~ I believe that you are thinking of a Doctor of Laws or an LL which would be the Doctorate level of law.

ITL~ Don’t laugh at the Corral. My parents have done pretty well and that’s my mother’s favorite place to go eat for “fast” food. Personally, I throw up in my mouth a little every time someone suggests we go there but I think that is conditioning from YEARS of cafeteria food. Blech! :D

Gotcha.

The Golden Corral by my house always has an A or A+. If it’s not busy, I drive right on by, but right now all the retirees are going there, and the food is fresh. I only eat a salad, and drink water when I go.

Blackfoote – I didn’t get in the whole discussion of crazies earlier but you would think with all these letters flying around some of that stuff would help steer and guide a person’s life.

But I’m not judging nor am I trying to be offensive…just say :)

Comon ~ not the way I want to be. Been in the legal field my entire life. Bachelor’s in Criminal Law, took LSAT twice. Passed 2nd time around with a good enough score to be accepted to Georgia State College of Law, then isht started happening in my life that “I” used to hinder me from attending. Never left my soul so once I get lil leggs squared, I believe I’m going back.

C~ I think that it guides me in my professional life. However, I know a lot of people I went to school with and some professionally whose personal lives are train wrecks (mine included). No offense taken. Hopefully, I have grown up and moved past the mistakes I made at a really bleak time in my life. Contrary to what HST suggests, I don’t blame anyone for the position I am in; I made that bed and therefore I must sleep in it. I would also find it noteworthy that when I was at Emory the joint degree I pursued was a Master’s of Divinity (MDiv). While Candler is a very liberal school, I don’t think that my lifestyle for that period is what they had in mind. :D In fact, I have laughed about that very thing with some of my friends. But in my experience, people with degrees are generally no smarter than people without them. We just proved that we could stick with someting beyond high school for however many years. (9 for my post-high school, but I think it’s longer for an MD. Correct HST?)

BF – big country, sophisticated citified world knowledge? what you know about that? lol.

ITL – I am bringing Sunday dinners back. I know for most folks they never went anywhere but I admit my cooking fell way off after the offspring left the house. thing is, with just me, Sunday dinner lasts forever.

Slim – DL from DMV. now that’s what I’m talking about.

If you eat clean (salad, grilled chicken, water) at the Corral then it’s OK, but the other food is an atrocity to health.

Leggs, IDK how well you did on the LSAT, but I know that GSU has relaxed their curriculum a lot in the past couple of years and they are working with a much more flexible schedule to accomodate working adults. You may want to look into their program. Also, because they are a state school, they have some EXCELLENT funding opportunities to help pay for it. If I had it to go back and do over again, I would look into their program because that bill from Emory was OUTLANDISH!!!
