Storms in teacups

I have a term for them: they're called the One Month Jitters. It happens, without fail. Get into a relationship: the first weeks are amazing, you feel like you're floating on cotton candy clouds, and all's right with the world, but come the fourth week, aka the one-month headline, and there are jitters inthe air. The questions come then: where are we headed to? do you think this will work? maybe we should take it easy now, back off a bit? I'm not sure I can take it so serious... yadayadayada.

One Month Jitters.

We've all been there. Happened to me. Happened to friends of mine. Is happening to another friend of mine. It's a cycle of sorts.

So, what's the trick? Varying degrees of separation? The trick is to let them know you're interested, but not that interested! The trick is to let them know you could be falling - but not in love.. that's a dirty word, and that comes askance on you when you're expecting it the least!

Damn, I sound like an Oprah clone. The Blogoprah. Sheesh. I'm all jittery, I guess.

1 month jitters happen all the time. Most of my "relationships" end about then.

C'est la vie. La Fucking Sucking Vie.

Maybe some of us were meant to be alone...the longer I think about it, I feel I was meant to be terminally single. Ever thought about that?
