I have been holding my breath for as long as possible about this one, but I really need someone to talk to about this. *loud sigh* lol
My sister, who is about 40, is currently in the dating field. She has met some of the most “Colorful-language having, dysfuntional, inconsiderate” beings I have ever heard of. I love her so much. She’s so beautiful. My big sister is my best friend. However, she keeps settling and having to rant to me about it and I don’t really know what to tell her.
This weekend, she called me and was very upset. She had gotten dressed up (when she dresses, the woman looks like a bombshell. Who would do what i’m about to say next, I dont know, but here goes…) and he STOOD HER UP. The guy didn’t even call or anything. She said that she wouldn’t be giving him another chance and that it was the last time he would be doing this to her.
Today, she called me. Guess who came to her house at 8am, crying, whining, and kissing her hand, stating that he’s been “stressed” and “busy with court” and couldn’t call her because he fell asleep? You’ve got it. And come to find out, this guy is an alcoholic felon, who smokes until he passes out.
And as for my sis? She is actually ALLOWING this man to try to take her out again. Oops, I mean stand her up for the FOURTH time. (Yes, he has done this to her 3 times before this past weekend)
I don’t want to be mean and just abolish my sister like that, but I really can’t take hearing someone hurting her or her being masochistic when it comes to how men treat her. We talk everyday and I have to hear about this….Everyday. Even when I ask not to hear about it.
Its almost as if she relishes on the idea of pain from these guys and relishes the idea of ranting to me about it later.
She and I suspect that my SO is proposing soon, as he just left my hometown where she and my dad and other siblings are, to ask for my hand in marriage (he’s really traditional lol). So I don’t know how I would handle her behavior if I were to get engaged soon; since I’m now considering making her my Maid/Matron of Honor in the event of marriage.
Suggestions on how to stay close with my sister in her time of dating turmoils? lol
