Heartbreak by Design

The other day one of my girlfriends saw me with a male friend (totally innocent friendship) and said, “Don't break my friend’s heart,” I looked around to make sure she was speaking to me. After it became clear that she was talking to me, I asked her what she meant. She said “you know how you do...” and gave me a sinister looking smile. I was completely taken aback by her statement. She may have said it in jest but it got me thinking, seriously.

After we finished chatting I wondered if I did have a pattern of “breaking hearts” and I came to a very quick conclusion, no! I ended several relationships in the past because they were not fulfilling in one way or another; but I think the only heart I have successfully broken is my own. If I date a person and they can’t recognize my awesomeness or think I am too awesome (like there really is such a thing), then they force me to move on. Even though they may not want a breakup at the time, it cannot be classified as my fault or a “heart break” simply because the other party is afraid or unwilling to move forward. Though I am pure awesomeness, I am not without flaws. I've had several relationship missteps but that is not why we are here today (sorry). Bottom line - I’m not a heartbreaker, unless provoked.
