What came next was an embarrassing display of desperation. From constantly calling him, drunk texting, going to his place of work, stalking, even repeatedly asking his and my friends about him. I was relentless.
I couldn’t conceive how something that felt so right could be gone so fast, which meant in my head that it was a mistake. There was no other explanation.
Little did I know at the time, I was the one making a huge mistake. In fact, due to my relentless need to be in his line of sight, I was effectively pushing him away for good.
You see, I was convinced I was in love, but in truth, I was extremely lovesick.
