I want to get all the negative stuff out of the way first. I made some very big mistakes with Cody. I have thought about what I did wrong for a long time, and I have to live with the pain. I really screwed up with Cody. The pain hurt my heart for months. I really do love him. No matter what happens in life, I will always have a place in my heart for him. It seems like in my life every time I get into a relationship that might work out, it just falls apart.
After Cody broke my heart you all saw me cry. I have never cried over a man like that before ever in my life. I was hurting so badly after Cody left the restaurant. I didn't know what to do, but I was so grateful that Tara and Daylon were there for me. They rushed over to me at the last minute. Seriously, I don't know what I would do without them. During the next couple of hours I was a mess. Tara was a complete saint. She called everyday to check on me. She knew I was hurt and even made sure I was eating. For the next couple of months it was really hard for me to get back into dating. It really felt like an incredible mountain to climb.
You are an awesome guy, and seem to be an amazing friend. If I still lived in FW I'd definitely want you to be my best friend. Love watching you!
Drew i know how you feel. I'm glad to see a show that show how hard it is for alcholics, and to let people see your struggles with it. Thanks..With Cody you're inlove with him,and with him moving. You were just trying to show him what he's missing. love,love you, but that was the wrong way to do things., but can see why you did it. We all make mistakes,but hopefully we as a person can learn from it.. and hope you do find true love. thanks for a good season, i don't think i would watch next season without you or Glenn,. Maybe you two should have your on show ,Glenn and Drew taken, not taking LA.. FINDING LOVE, cause you guys are so different, but alike somehow..
drew, if he was the one you would of not done what you did..... your heart was telling you he is not the one..........
Congratulations on so many things. Your weight loss, wow I just saw a picture the other day of the larger size you! You should be so proud of yourself! Becoming a recovering alcoholic, bless you. I wish you only continued success in these areas and the rest of your life. I think you need to consider that others offering you a drink is more a testament to them seeing you as more than being a recovering alcoholic, and that they see all of you, not just that portion of you.
I do think you sabotaged your relationship with Cody intentionally, whether you can admit to it or not. You made that kiss happen and if you were really ready to commit to Cody it would never have happened.
I'm sorry for your pain, your sorrow but so glad you had good friends to be there for you.
I wish you every blessing, and sincerely hope you find someone to love in a healthy way.
Drew, To be honest, I hadn't watched any episodes until I caught the marathon yesterday. ( I know, BAD GIRL!) You seem to be a really good person.. however, I have to say, I didn't feel sorry for you when you were speaking to Cody about kissing someone else- I know how it feels to be cheated on, and it totally kills you. When I heard your conversation with Cody, I was blown away because it wasn't the first time you'd done this to him! If you TRULY love someone, you don't even THINK about cheating- and drinking is NOT an excuse to use either. Even if you're drunk you still know what you're doing! Come on... Anyway, I like the show, and I hope that you learned from what happened with Cody... as the saying goes, "you can't make the same mistake twice. the second time you make it, it isn't a mistake... it's a CHOICE."
So about your problems with Cody, each of us need to learn from our own problems. You will become a better person having dealt with this problem becuse you are a honest, likeable guy that wants to find that right person. You will find your man, be patient and it will happen. It hurts me that you are in such pain and I do not know you personally. Would be nice to have you as a friend because you are so honest, people that I know are not true to themselves and even though are my friends per say, it husrts that they are not really friends.
You have good people around you that care, and just know that I care even though you do not know me. I would consider it a great honor to have a true friend such as yourself. It does not matter if you have money or not because that it not what counts, what counts is that you are true to yourself and to others. If people are your friend only because you have money then they are really not a good friend to you or true to themselves.
Take care and be happy.....
You see totally genuine and sweet; however, you also see a slave to being a victim. I just watched your confession to Cody about loving him and seemed to make it more about you than him. You could have said that you were vulnerable because you were concerned about him leaving, you could have bared your soul and said you loved him and were sad about the loss of the relationship, but instead you made out with another guy in front of him and made it all about you! Love is not like that. You had a chance, and it seems like he loves you too. Please learn from this experience and quit being a victim! You are stronger than you think and the victim mode will put more people off than attract them because relationships are not based on pity, but compromise. I can totally relate with how you felt when you made out with that guy, but love is not based on jealousy, and clearly Cody knew that. Please help yourself to love unconditionally and without being a victim!!
Drew, I have a friend from Texas who I want to set you up with.......seriously....you two would be perfect.....how do I get in contact with you to hook you two up? Michelle
Drew, I have a friend that I want to hook you up with.....he's from Texas, currently working on his PhD, your age, from Texas, goood match.....how do I get you two hooked up? Michelle
Firstly, you broke Cody's heart. What you got in response to your actions, was well deserved.
That being said, I think that you and Tara have a lot in common. You set yourselves up for a bad outcome in your relationships.
Get some counseling to figure out why you have these self destructive habits in your relationships.
If anyone can do it, you can! You have already accomplished so much!
