He wrote a poem about a SQUIRREL??? OMFG. That is one of the saddest things I've ever heard. I would have hit him with my car... honestly... had him open the hood to check something, and just run him over FLAT.
I know EXACTLY how you feel. I've wasted a lot of time waiting for a man (more like, men) to live up to some expectation I had, and it's a horrible thing. Especially when it would require so LITTLE effort on their parts... Like, LIE to me and say, We'll be together forever, death can't part us... but they're mean, yes. Most of them are just downright mean. It's like they enjoy it.
