I have a terrible answer for this. Honestly, I had to go see other girls.

I hope there was 23+ girls at this other place you went to...

No... just the one I loved most and her friends. A couple years later she'd write an album in which she said I sucked the green right out of the grass. Amazing how things turn.

Though decades later, I wrote her a letter of apology two months ago. No response, but then I didn't expect one.

Oh no, you make me laugh quite often, this might just be the first time I've posted about it. You tend to provoke more wry grins than outright laughs, but you definitely bring teh funny.

She told me she still carries a torch - she just doesn't know where you live to burn it down.

That's probably about the size of it.

Nothing crueler than a world with no time machines.

I hear that.

Huh....The Zazulas released her last CD? I thought they were more metal oriented. Go figure.

I don't keep up with her music, but she wasn't a metal player (though she listened to Slayer and Sabbath on down to metal cheez like Bang Tango). I thought I saw she released something through Megaforce. Is that even possible?

She used to sit on my drummer's bed while my hard rock band at the time practiced... and everyone seemed to think it was cute the way she picked up the guitar and played Metallica... well sorta. Fingers all stretched out awkwardly and playing it a little too slow. Couple years later and she's out there doing it, man. Joke's on us.

We started to collaborate way back in the day, hoping to perform together in the same outfit, but she never had lyrics or gave much input. Not until I figuratively lit everything aflame, that is. After that she was a wellspring of ideas. I'm sincerely glad she got something out of the deal.

You were her muse-after-the-fact.

Yep, and just like Urizen said... I was her Bullwinkle impersonator.

Yeah but, it was a long time ago. If she's still writing songs of hate based on what you did (you bastard!) then either you really are the biggest a-hole in the world or she's a bit obsessive. Move on, my man - it didn't happen for a reason. If that reason was you, hopefully you have learnt better. If it was her, lucky escape.

The only reason I would get a time machine would be to go back and stop a younger me lending a certain female someone some money. She subsequently wanted to pay me back in kind, but I preferred the cash. After all, why pay for what I was getting for free? She didn't see it like like, so no sex and no money. Lousy investment that was.

A sincere thanks for your reply, Aubrey.

A-hole is just insulting for a man of my damage. I was the demigod of WTF.

I. Blew. People's. Minds.

I didn't say Patti was still writing songs about me. Just that first album as far as I know. I haven't a clue what she's singing about these days. I just want to go back to undo the cataclysmic level of damage I was known for during a certain two year period of my life. Since there's no such gizmo, I'll just go on remembering what sort of BS I was once capable of and be amazed at how far I've come since then. Different animal altogether.

I'm not hung up on a single ex girlfriend, although she was the one I was most crazy for and her for me. I've had to send out a few such amends. No 12 step group to guide me... just a painfully clear memory and some justifiable regret. Hell of a letter to receive, I'd imagine. They admit guilt where guilt was denied. They give insight into what I was thinking versus what I was feeling. Oh, and they apologize for the inherent selfishness of their arrival.

Since I've been on social media sites women from decades ago often track me down to say hi. So whatever I did left a mark one way or the other. I know people are supposed to just move on, but when I've finally explained or apologized over the phone (in cases where that's merited) I've heard them weep softly with relief and admit gratitude for the effort. I believe it's a purge that has to happen. True or not, I feel like I have to make things right.

How bad could it have been? Epically and originally bad. A few of the people in the know back then thought it would have made for a bestselling book, especially my friends' girlfriends who found my exploits beyond mortal comprehension and grinned at me like a two legged car wreck. My reply, "Yeah but someone would put out a hit on me. Matter of fact, hitmen would probably be called in in such numbers that they'd get in each other's crosshairs and my death would look like a small part of a mass murder."

I've been doing it all the right way since age 24, and not a moment too soon.

I feel for ya. I really do. I didn't turn around my car-wreck a-hole crap until after I lost that "one" myself. Hell, in some ways I'm still learning how to act right, and I'm 24 right now.

Thanks, Chris.

I guess the good news is that I got and you're getting over yourself young. It often takes crisis for man to change, and for a man brimming with calamitous BS, losing The One is probably the only possible thing that could fuel a personal reinvention. My guess is that you're well on your way to being the man you want to be because you're stopping to examine where you lost the path in a self-honest way.

Only gets easier from here.

I only hope I can find someone as amazing as her again someday. I find myself having a hard time really connecting with any of my girlfriends since her, and it's because I keep looking for someone that can light my fire like that again.

At least I'm lucky enough that she's friendly to me (if not exactly my friend). She says she's willing to be friends, but it's kinda hard to build a friendship when she moved a couple hundred miles away.

Thanks for lettin' me know it gets easier though, that honestly really helps.

We should totally go back in time... like twenty of us... and when she asks you for money we'll all jump out from closets laughing at her and pointing the finger of ridicule. Once the shock wears off we'll show her a bit of future technology, explain we're from 2010, and that in the future it's well known that she never pays anyone back. Long way to go for justice, but it would be fun.

Thank you! I could've googled it, but I found it funny in an ironic way that I couldn't remember :-)
