SOS: My Super Hopeless Romance

Okay, I've just spent an absurd amount of time reading a new blog. (Just look at what time I actually posted this!)

It's called My Super Hopeless Romance. The writer, Cordy, is completely in love with her best friend. And since he is a typical guy, he has NO CLUE!! Go and read it and feel a little of her heartbreak. And possibly the over-whelming urge to smack this guy upside the head...

She doesn't allow comments but I just desperately want to tell her "Cordy, I've been there!"

I loved him. In fact, he was my first love. For years, I focused a lot of attention on him, playing the role of "the good buddy," being there whenever he wanted me. I finally found the guts and I told him, one fateful night on my front porch. And what happened? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. It was business as usual, like I'd never said a thing, never laid my heart bare, never said anything other than "see ya tomorrow!" A part of me died and I've never gotten it back.

Soon, I was hundreds of miles away from him, with only emails and the occasional phone call to ease the feeling of rejection. But even that changed. He fell in love. And suddenly, he was saying those words...but not to me. Not to me. (And Cordy, I know you will know the reference on that one...I have to think that there's a reason why he asks you to sing that song.)

It took a lame rebound relationship and a few casual ones until finally, finally, I found him, the ONE. Of course, he wasn't going down without a fight, either. But I won in the end.

So go and read about Cordy and the man she loves. Try to do it when you have some time because if you've ever had a taste of unrequited love, you'll be reading into the wee hours of the morning, too.

I can't imagine what my dating life would have been like without an endless stream of those unrequited Buddy Romances. Pure pain. But at least there's someone to love!

Oooooh, I'm so reading that blog tomorrow when I'm bored. Thanks for sharing!

Oy vey! I'm so sorry you had to go through that!
I'm glad you found the "one" though!
Thanks for playing along and I LOVE the title of your blog!

Ah-so sad...so familiar! And was that song a Les Mis reference? (If it's the song I'm thinking of, yes- maybe I have sung it a million times while nursing a sad case of unrequited love.)

You got me hooked. That is a great blog. I think it will work out. Then again I'm a sucker for unrequited love. Hello, every guy I dated or was in love with all through high school, was Gay. That is until I met the most wonderful man on the planet, Kalani.

You know that it is Sue from Nazel Gazing that writes My Super Hopeless Romance, right? It's totally obvious--she posts on each blog on a different day (Mon on Super Hopeless, Tues on Navel Gazing...) which is much easier to maintain that way--and on the days when she posts on both blogs, they are always around the same time--both in the AM or both late at night. And the style is TOTALLY the same--conversations written out with who is speaking, funny sense of humor, they both (Cordy and Sue) got their haircut the same weekend, they both are good writers (Sue was just writing and instruction manual and Cordy editing Seth's paper)...and the list goes on and on. But I still think it is a fun blog and something we've all experienced--she is a great writer for coming up with it!! Hey--its a great way to make a little extra money!

I don't know - how would she make money off of it? It doesn't have any ads and doesn't link anywhere? But if she or someone else is writing it I just hope they keep going.

I hope it's real, I'm totally addicted.

Sue came clean on her blog today: she write for Cordy. I have to say that once bailey commented, I took a closer look and agreed that the writing style is identical. Still...I craved the next stage in the story!
