Better The Idea Than The Man

He was by far the most beautiful man I had ever laid my eyes on, and that remains true to this day. He had a way with words and a deep voice that made my toes curl. We went out a couple of times and we spoke on the phone often, until one day he didn't return my call. Though, now I know his words were empty and that he is no good for me, I can't help but think about what might have been if his personality was as perfect as his physical attributes. I wish I could get the idea of him out of my mind...

we are all in the same boat. in love with the idea of what we would like that person to be and not the actual person.

We've all been there sweetie. Hang in there. Enjoy the fantasy!


there is woman in my life just like your man. How is it they get under our skin?

In my case, it is like being eternally (or at least for the foreseeable future) star struck. He didn't stick around long enough for his personality to mar his beauty in my eyes. My imagination just likes to take advantage of the lack of reality that didn't get a chance to set in. It created its own Limbo in a way.
