What an episode! This blog is dedicated to all women out there who has had their heart broken by a man!
I still can't believe I had my heart so broken, especially on national television! Now that was one of the toughest and most raw moments I ever had to go through! I was heartbroken once before by the first love of my life, who I met in college! Ever since we broke it off, I always told myself I would never allow my heart to be broken again. But what I am learning is, you can't control falling in love.
It was really hard to let go of my relationship with Mike and face the fact that he wasn't in love with me anymore and left me for a younger woman. I think that was one of the hardest parts of the break-up -- feeling not good enough for him. I am already having issues with my age, so it's devastating to feel like one of those women who has been left for a younger woman! Ouch! that doesn't feel good.
I know I am only 28, but in my community it's like being an old maid! Everyone who I know from my community has gotten married at age 22, and they have babies by age 25. Not to mention that my baby sister is getting married, which doesn't help ease the pressure.
I feel like I needed to get to know who I was before I committed myself to someone else for a lifetime. Thank G-d I didn't marry Mike because I would have been miserable, and it would have been a huge mistake. Everything does happen for a reason, and I know I will meet the "one" when the time is right.
"I should have known better than to go for a younger guy. Note to self: never date a younger guy no matter how mature he is -- ha! "
Not necessarily.... The love of my life is 5 years younger and he has given me love and respect since the day I met him. It's been the best year and half of my life! We have accomplished so much together already, and we are really looking forward to the future. (He is jewish and I am catholic by the way)
You just know when I guy really wants you for the right reasons. My advice is to just go with your instincts. Older or younger, bad habits are hard to break. Pay attention to the red flags. :)
It wasn't easy to find the one, but after a few disappointments, you (us) eally learn to put yourself first. Then you have the clarity to recognize quality when it comes to you. "Find someone when you are ready, not when you are lonely" (love this quote) Focus on yourself, find your balance and the rest will come to you. Positive energy!!
Love you Coco
Chanel, you make the show. That low life scum did not deserve you. Out of the whole cast, you are the most grounded. You deserve all the happiness in the world. So, keep dancing! Mr. Right is around the corner. Good luck! ;)
You truly are the only one in this group that I like. You feel completely genuine compassionate and genuine in your care for others to me. You are so funny and I love your impressions. You and Amanda together doing your moms was totally awesome!
Chanel.....you are one of the only redeeming individuals on this show. I think you are funny, pretty, and real. Even though you grew up with "money", and for all intents and purposes could be as big as snob as some of the others on this show, you are amazingly down to earth. I wish you nothing but the best and will pray that God helps you find whatever (or whoever wink, wink) makes you happy.
Chanel, say boruch hagomel and move on. Mike is a dufus. And if being 28 means being an old maid in your community get a new community.
Loved the mom impersonations! You are very nice and very entertaining....that guy isn't nearly sophisticated enough for you! Let it for and you will find a MAN, not a boy!
Good for you! Your ex has no respect for you or your beliefs. "I'm waiting for you outside your house." How creepy! He sounds like a stalker. So blocking him on your phone may not be enough. Take a Krav Maga class. Lots of NJB's there, and you can put your ex in the dirt the next time you see him.
You are smart-gorgeous-funny & can dance girl! Keep your head high & remember happiness is the best revenge.
I don't even what to say...first I think nothing could be more of a train wreck than these women on the show, and then I read their blogs. This one is 28 going on 15. All this living with their parents in childlike roles stunts their emotional development. Who would want to hook up with someone who thinks they're a "princess"? I mean, who are you, Barbie?? Men want an equal partner, someone who will pitch in when the going gets tough, be a helpmate, a confidant, a PARTNER. Who would want to marry someone --with the emotional depth and experience of a 15 year old-- who wants to be kept on a gilded princess pedestal, constantly whining (omg...the WHINING on this show), kvetching, comparing, and acting entitled, entitled, entitled every single day. Seven blog pages on some guy who dumped you? Good grief.
