One of the last things I told S was why can’t you be my Aladdin and I am Jasmine and we fly away on a magic carpet and live happily ever after. Ok, totally ridiculous, but what can I say. I am who I am.
It’s definitely hard to sit and wonder how in a relationship one person can love another so much and not feel like it is not reciprocated. Also, how could I be so blind? And everyone deserves to be loved.
Since college, I have always attracted Middle Eastern men for some reason, when I dated only Caucasians all my life. For better or for worst, it all changed in MBA School with one particular person.
I went on a date with another Middle Eastern I met out actually on another date when he went to get me a drink. All is fair in love and war, right?
Anyways, he told me I have Jasmine hair…so I said I’ve always wanted to find my Aladdin, no matter how lame that sounds. He said…its ok we can fly off on a magic carpet. Yep…he literally said that. I kept thinking…how real is this guy? I think I need to pinch him? My response…Only if it is a Persian carpet and he laughed and said of course. He even asked to have him saved in my phone as Aladdin.
Again…Life gives you lemons to make lemonade.
