Meet My Boyfriend: Food
I know I am married but I would like you to meet my boyfriend. Naughty me, I know. Food, come on out, its time people knew about us. You see, food has been my boyfriend long before my husband was around. Food is the one "person" who was always there for me. Other boys would come and go but food never left me. He also knew just what to say in any situation. When I was depressed he comforted me with sweets and salty snacks. When I was celebrating a great moment in life he was always there and he usually brought cake. He was at all social gatherings so I didn't ever have to go alone. If I felt out of place he would feed me so I didn't have to talk so much. He always knew how to make the pain go away, at least for a little while. He is a very loyal boyfriend however, I need to take a step back from this relationship. I am not saying we can't still be friends, I mean I need you techincially to live, but we can never have the intimacy we once shared. You can no longer have a hold on every part of my life. I want to spend more time with my other friends: exercise, family, writing, & reading. Those have been relationships I have long neglected. So, food, please bow out gracefully, we will still see each other from time to time, but it will never be the same, It's better for both of us. I would say its not you it's me, but truly....its you.
