A Mistake? Probably.

A lot of you remember the first time that Drew broke up with me.
I was devastated, and for days I just didn't feel happy.
But then over time I healed, got over it, and moved on.

A few more of you remember the second time he broke up with me.
I was... less than devastated, and really got over it within the next day.

Well last night Drew confessed something to me, and once again changed the way things are going to go.
He told me he's in love with me, that he misses me.
So what did I do?
I took him back.

I know what you're thinking. "What is she thinking? Is she stupid?"
Maybe I am, but I know something that a lot of people my age don't realize.
I'm young, so if this goes down the drain again, I have plenty of time to get over it and move on with my life.
But I've cared about him for so long that I can't help but think "If I don't do this, will I regret it in the long run?"
If he breaks up with me again, so be it. I got over it really easily last time, so I'm not worried.
But this time is different.
The last time, I pressured him into dating me again.
This time he came out and asked me back with no pressure.

I think it's a lovely birthday present if you ask me.
(I still want a real present, Drew. You aren't getting off that easy!)

So guys, lay it on me. Tell me how big of a mistake I'm making. But I'm happy, and I'm willing to give it another shot.
But 3 strikes you're out. If it doesn't work this time, it's never going to work and I'm not going to be one of those girls that goes back to the same guy a thousand times.
3 strikes.

So yep, that's my interesting event for the day.
Tonight I'm going to see Lance Burton with my dad.
IT'S NOT ILLUSIONS. MAGIC IS REAL. I KNOW IT.
Tomorrow Izzy's coming over to blow up balloons.
What a great friend I am, making my best friend blow out her lungs just so my party can be nice and balloony.
Friday my dad comes over for his weekly dad time, and then Saturday is the big party.
I'm excited, it's going to be AWESOME.
But we all know that anything I plan is awesome anyway.
I am the epitome of awesomeness.

You are crazy! CRAZY! But at 17, you have time to live & learn...

Well, I'll just say that I hope it works out this time.

And if he's mean to you, I will kick his arse.

I think...that I hope things work out for you.
People might have thought it was a mistake for me to take back the boyfriend who once told me "I just don't love you as much as you love me," but thing seem to have worked out well for us, what with being married and all.
But I'm with Kristina P. just by the way.

Personally I think people that have the "ex" before their name have it there for a reason. However, another shot isn't a bad thing - I do agree with the 3 strikes and he is out deal though. You are young and so is he so no biggie if it doesn't work out. :) You are going to have a great time at your party! Also, look in the mail for something coming your way! :)

Is he your first love? It seems like we never really forget about our first love, and if they want to get back together with us we are happy to. Good luck, and I can't wait to see pictures of the party and balloons!

I love your perspective. You are so wise. Congrats on getting back together. I am certainly not one to point fingers. Me and my ex were apart and back together more times than I could remember. Everyone always said 'why are you back with him??' and that didn't really help me at all, it made me feel alienated. You love who you love and people who love you can either support that or move on with their life.
Does Drew get along with Izzy?

I like your idea of THREE strikes and he is out. He came to you with his feelings and that shows promise. If he is smart he will be a good BF if he is not, sump his behind! LOL!

I think that if you are happy it is o.k. But stick with the 3 strikes thing--good plan.

And I am with Kristina--if he hurts you....I will kick his arse too. I am only 6 hours away!!

Lee,

I think all that really matters is that it's what you want and that you are happy. I wish you lots of luck with this relationship!
