Why is there nothing in this first aid kit for my wounded pride?

Just when I had congratulated myself on finding a real grown-up guy with a real grown-up job (works for the State Department), it turns out that he's 26, and lives with his mother. 

Then I got unceremoniously dumped. After two dates. By a 26 year-old, who lives with his mother. Also, a terrible kisser.

I hate everything.

No, don't even look at me, I'm hideous. Just go away. No, seriously.

  1. Oh jeez!

    I'm so sorry.

    Although when I read this I was like 26 and lives at home - what's wrong with that, and that's when I realised I've been in Australia for tooooo long.

  2. So sorry. But it doesn't seem like you lost much with this guy.

  3. Sorry for his loss. Having worked a lot with the Federal government, I can attest to the general lack of good judgment enjoyed by their employees.

  4. This is very reassuring. I'm nearly 35 and recently got dumped after three dates by a 27 year old, who was also a terrible kisser. As I've never thought there was anything wrong with you, this might mean that I'm alright too.

  5. Oh, getting dumped by people who weren't good enough for you anyway is the worst. Stupid mama's boy.

  7. Look at the bright side, if he didn't dump you then you'd have to endure his terrible kisses. I dated a terrible kisser for two years. His personality made up for it somewhat, but there's really no teaching someone over the age of 21 how to kiss. They have already developed their own "style" and will stick to it.

  8. He just figured out you are so much more awesome than him and he didn't want you to find out how un-awesome he is.

    Don't feel bad for being super awesome.

  9. Life is too short for terrible kissers. His loss, not yours.

    P.S. So are you gonna get a dog? :)

  10. Sorry. I know the feeling of rejection sucks. That said...terrible kisser?! Girl, he did you a favor. I agree, his loss.

    And now? You're one guy closer to the man with whom you're supposed to end up.
