Nothing is about me, but this post is.

Nothing is about me, but this post is.

I just got wind that a former girlfriend, my first girlfriend, is married and her husband is dying in a hospital in Niagara Falls. I didn't know she was married. I haven't seen her in 20 years. Last time I saw her was in a plant nursery and she ninja-ed me faster than I ducked out on her. I know nothing about her because she is the sort to eschew Facebook and/or block exes. Why am I drawn to mega-intelligent, beautiful women who want nothing to do with me afterward? Dr C is a ghost online, too, and we're married!

My co-worker's ex, the father of her children, was found dead on his bathroom floor yesterday. He lived in another town. She had to tell her kids a second time that their father has left them. She is far less nostalgic.

I've actually considered reaching out to her, but I don't know why, and it wouldn't do any good. Maybe she'll like to hear a kind word, but not at risk of the awkwardness.

That is a horrible thing to have to tell one's kids. Peace to them.

She was pretty stoic, then finally cut out. You can only be sarcastic in grief for so long.

"Why am I drawn to mega-intelligent, beautiful women who want nothing to do with me afterward?" Duh, precisely because they are mega-intelligent.

On the sunny side be thankfull of that, otherwise you could had been her husband and be now dying in Niagara Falls...

Re: mega-inteligents and good luck

So, what you're saying is by the nature of being super-intelligent, they know to avoid me? I can't argue with the evidence.

Dying in Niagara Falls literally *is* worse than death.
