In other words, superficial reasons to end a relationship. I dated someone in my past that started out looking great. He had a clean-cut haircut and a smooth face. Then slowly he started to change his appearance. He stopped shaving, and grew out his facial hair. Then started to grow his hair.
Then it got worse.
He took on one of the latest trends, the MB aka the Man Bun.
I don’t think I need to explain it so if you don’t know what I am talking about Google it and get yourself a nice display of pics. So, enough became enough. Once that happened, I had to end it. Yes, it was superficial, but, there are some deal breakers in a relationship and, for me, this was one of them.
Of course there were other major reasons that forced me to end the relationship, he started to stalk me, he lied a lot, he lost his job and stopped looking for another one, he sat in my bed all day watching Netflix on my computer while I went to the gym or the dentist or work, but, it was his hair that really got to me.
Now I see them everywhere. I live in Downtown Los Angeles around hipsters with their MB’s and I want to walk up to them and literally cut them right off. And the reminder of this troubled guy I dated (he was a rebound btw so give me a break for bad judgment) when I see it, only makes it worse.
Yesterday I stepped onto the elevator and there was the new latest hipster thing: The Small Man Bun. I wanted to barf. And as the elevator rose to my floor, I felt the grossness grow inside me. So, here I was stuck in an elevator with a SMB and when I got out, I breathed a sigh of relief and came to a realization. On top of major other issues, there may be superficial things that can drive you crazy when you are in a relationship enough to end it.
And that is okay.
