Change inertia

It was once said, "People don't really change, they just get better at it."  It's true.  I tried to change to pursue this one girl, tried to convince myself that I was OK with just dating her and trying to mold her little by little conform her to my wonts; but then I realized, she won't change and I won't change.

I'm a relationship guy with the ultimate goal of a family (wife, kids, the whole ball of wax), when I realized she was uninterested in long-term thinking, that's all she wrote, bye-bye Birdie, I sent her an SMS that would act as a Litmus test.  She broke it off, strangest thing, I don't feel bad about it in the least; a little disappointed, sure, but not even wrought, let alone over-wrought.  As Freddy Mercury sang, "Any way the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me."

Nothing ventured, nothing gained; 'twas worth a roll of the dice.
