What Did I Do?

That's the question the guy I've been dating just posed to me. Three weeks ago my answer might have, "Everything right." Now, my answer's more, "Showed me that you're no different than most guys."

Somewhere along the way with this guy, some things got tangled. Things were misunderstood or allowed to go with discussion and suddenly the steady communication got shaky. I didn't know what had gone wrong, but I knew something had. I brought it up and we had a discussion that resolved very little and that seemed to pretty much seal the fate of whatever we'd had.

So what did he do? He made me think there was a lot of potential, where now I see little. He convinced me that he was more evolved and more open than it turns out he is. He got me all excited about the idea of spending time with someone you really like, only to remind me that liking someone is a small part of things working out.

What did he do? He sent me back to the drawing board to sketch out someone new.
