I'm either an extreme ball buster or just incredibly rough on people.
One of my friends (I guess we're friends?) is being completely used by a guy (who looks like Dopey from Snow White & the Seven Dwarves), and it's one of the most pathetic things I've seen. Here is this college educated woman who would rather run around, doe eyed, letting a man treat her like shit, than to be alone.
The thing is, I don't think she realizes he's treating her like shit. (I seriously think she wipes his ass for him, hence the whole "shit" thing being said twice.) She's in love. And she thinks he loves her (um, from what I've seen, he definitely doesn't.)
I'd rather have ridiculously high expectations that never get met - and yes, be single forever - then to be like that.
But that's just my opinion. Maybe the truth is that, if she's happy, then there's no problem with the way he treats her.
