Why haven't I been able to find Mr. Right instead of always settling with Mr. Right Now?
Why do I get so hung up on Mr. Right Now?
Am I REALLY psycho-chick that most men typically avoid?
...and the list goes on.
I realized that I've always been lacking one key component of my life. An attentive father. Don't get me wrong, I know my dad has a great heart and I know he loves me...he just has a HORRIBLE way of showing it (as far as I'm concerned).
A little bit about him (since I can tell you're all DYING to know)...
- He's a Vietnam vet, where he did a few tours, and drove a tank
- His own father died of a heart attack when my dad was seven
- He's a twin (paternal)
- I'm fairly certain he has OCD, and it always takes mysterious forms like photography, golf, tai kwon do, etc.
- He is the first man in his family (along with his twin) to live to see his 60th birthday
- He used to be obsessed with being a great father...then he moved onto to something else.
My father has a difficult time expressing his emotions. I think that's why I'm so darn emotional! I've felt compelled to spew emotion in the hopes of getting something back in return (which I think is kind of sad, I digress).
SO...Fast forward to present day....Along comes a man. He seems interested in me, and I give him the "do me eyes" and it's a done deal....for one night. I really need to work on forcing a man to work. I need to have more confidence that all men are NOT like my father. Some men actually will talk to me for more than just one night...I know it to be true because I've seen it happen with other girlfriends of mine...girlfriends who are now married.
So yeah..that's probably more about my mentally effed up mind than you would care to know...since when am I one to hold back? Never.
