Live Your Life 2

Do you ever think you attract a certain type of person? My one and only boyfriend was the emotionally abusive type who told me how to live my life and what to do. He had no clue about the reality of what I was like, and instead tried to mold me into the perfect version of what his ex-wife had been for him. I don’t really consider him to be a boyfriend, because he never officially asked me on a date. He, instead, hung out with me at a couple of restaurants with groups of friends. He would call me incessantly. Then, he called to let me know that we had to break up when he had to move across country for school.

He’s not the only creepy one to be in my life.

I had a stalker…a real life stalker. He worked at A&M and he knew all kinds of crap about me that no one should have known. (Stuff he could have only known by watching me.) He would go into my dorm room and mess with my stuff. He wasn’t really dangerous, I guess, but he scared me a lot. I hated him knowing where I would be and when I would be there.

Then, of course, there are the cyber-stalkers. I’ve had a few of those. One threatened people I know. It’s creepy that someone can try to hold so much power over you when they don’t even know you personally.

I think it’s so weird that people talk about there being something demented about me when it seems like sometimes I’m more normal than the kind of people who are drawn to me.

    I know exactly what you mean. I seem to attract really dickheaded, egotistical guys. Even when I think this ones different, he always ends up the same.
