There are times in my life I think I am undateable. Seriously! I didn’t have a serious boyfriend for five years between the time I broke up with my last one and met the shit eating chimp. For some reason I never think about my dating track record before the last serious boyfriend. I actually did okay then. I didn’t pick the best guys but I generally had a boyfriend. Then I hit 21, broke up with D and never had another serious boyfriend until I met Zack five years later. It was the same month even. Oh, I went out with guys but it usually lasted about a month and was never an exclusive type of thing.
Then I watch ID TV and I see something like I did the other night. Meet Tracie Andrews. She was featured on a segment called, “Deadly Women”. That bitch be crazy! This show has an FBI profiler that talks about the various murderers. Tracie was classified as a narcissist who would fly into a rage whenever her boyfriend du jour didn’t have his attention focused 100% on her. I’m talking trying-to-stab-him-with-whatever-object-she-could-find rage.
She gets engaged despite these rages! It wasn’t like her fiancé didn’t know she was crazy and violent. Oh no! He knew. She had slashed his face with a beer bottle. She was restrained from stabbing him another time. STILL the man continues to date her. One day they get into a fight, he exits the car, and as his back is turned she stabs him over forty times! She goes to prison for a mere fourteen years (this was in Australia).
Now, because I’m nosy I wanted to know what this crazy bitch was up to. Turns out she’s engaged. To the married man she worked with at a bar. Who left his SANE wife to be with crazy bitch.
WTF? I haven’t even had another man flirt with me in years. The future is not looking any brighter, and I haven’t killed anyone! Not only does she kill her fiancé, go to prison, and then get engaged after she gets out, she has an affair with a married man and he leaves his wife for her!
I would say, “Oh, that poor sap,” but the reality is I don’t feel sorry for him at all. According to the articles I could find (and true, they were very gossipy) he was intrigued by this murderess. He knows what she’s done and he doesn’t care. He left a wife and four kids to hook up with this crazy bitch. Narcissists don’t change. She has, in the past, demanded all attention be on her. He’ll be lucky if he makes it to their five year anniversary. She’ll probably fly into a jealous rage way before then and stab him. After all, he has an ex-wife and four kids. At some point he’s going to have to deal with one or more of those five people and it’s going to set dear Tracie off. She’ll smash a beer bottle and go after him, or take a knife and plunge it into his back when his back is turned.
Then she’ll go to prison a second time and once she gets out I’m sure she’ll find yet another idiot willing to take a chance on her, convinced that he’s “the one”, her “soul mate”, and that only he understands her and can love her the way she needs to be loved.
And here I sit, writing a blog and playing Candy Crush. I have convinced myself I am not dating material because I’m middle aged, living with my mom, soon to be divorced with 2 teens and no decent job. The bitch KILLED A MAN and it didn’t stop her from finding someone new! I’m not sure if I need to re-evaluate my own desirability or if I just need to go out and stab someone! Bitch might be crazy but men seem to like crazy bitches!
