The Plan

What The Plan is cannot be stated. A secret it must remain; although I can hint at its outlines.

Admittedly there are some details still to be thrashed out. And I leave myself a generous amount of flexibility to allow for unforeseen developments. But, in essence, it's all there. After months (years?) of Planlessness, finally I have a Plan.

It involves giving up - at least temporarily - on Madame X, who has (probably without realising it!) broken my heart and trampled on the pieces over the past few weeks. It involves giving myself some recovery time from that ordeal. It involves exploring some other options. It involves reassessing my romantic situation in the light of that exploration.

It will probably then result in returning to the mire of being-miserably-unregarded-by-X. But at least I will have tried to escape.

Wish me luck. I'm going to need it.

Ooo. I love Plans. and Lists. do you have a List, too? then you can check things off.

Good Luck.

p.s. it's perfectly acceptable to add things to your List that you've already accomplished so that you can officially check them off.

Yes, I have A List - of women I might try and ask out. I was thinking of rolling a die to decide.... but I didn't have that many candidates, so I've ended up putting X on it twice. This is not perhaps the best way to get over her.
