The Curse of the "Super-Chick"

Ladies, we all know her. That super-chick (credits to DD for the term) inside all of us. She rears her ugly, needy, emotional, over-analytical head every once in a while and no matter how hard we try to push her out of the way, take a step back and look at things (read: relationships) objectively, she always seems to make an appearance when the stakes, meaning your heart getting broken, get a little bit higher. Suddenly, everything your unsuspecting partner says or writes in an e-mail gets broken down piece by piece like you're a CSI. You start to question why he waited an extra day to call you. "He usually calls me every day" you may say to yourself..."perhaps this is his way of 'pulling away'??" And that brings me to another topic altogether, this concept of men "pulling away" (not to be mistaken with *ahem* "pulling out" ha ha ha ha ha ha ha SORRY MOM!!). Why do men seem to always "pull away" when the relationship gets a little more serious, when everything is almost perfect, when you feel like you could actually find yourself falling in love with them...? It's when you feel or "sense" this "pulling away" that you transform into that somewhat crazy version of yourself that cries when he says he's spending the night with "the boys", that cries when he doesn't return an e-mail, that cries when you see puppies...errr...anyways, I'm sick of it. But, for now, I'm just going to smile because faking a smile produces the same happy effect that a real smile does... "oh the shark has great big teeth dear and he shows them. . .pearly white!"
