After reading about the listen project, i was dying to blog about Jessie.
Jessie and i used to volunteer at a women shelter, she came off as an eloquent and confident woman. Jessie had a fair understanding of herself and often reminded me of a walking self-help section at the bookstore. In the summer of 2☼☼7, she decided to reinvent her dating life by trying out online dating. She went through a series of unsuccessful dates but none of this men were ready to instantly commit to and dreaded her ” I’m looking for longterm speech”
she !!! she!! she!! ¯\..(•.̮ • )../¯
Then matt came along, he had a father who sucked at being a dad! Matt & Jessie had two things in common 1) daddy trouble 2) a similar approach of life. They believed that + = <— misleading, You can’t give what you don’t have. She loved him, but feared her family’s reaction, he was a high school drop-out and worked at the grocery store. Little did she know that a bigger storm ☁☂ was brewing. That morning, he left without living a word ☹☹☹☹. Every fibre of pain had resurfaced, she re-lived the day she saw her dad drive away with a woman other than her mom, the day her first boyfriend cheated on her with her best friend. Jessie went about her adult life, longing for longterm relationships, hating every weekend she spent alone, expecting an undivided attention and 100% commitment from her friends and lovers. It wasn’t about finding the right guy, it was about finding that man who would have been an exemplary spouse to her mother and a father to little Jessie.
