Remember this thing?  The most expensive mistake I ever made?  The physical representation of the woman who, a week before me proposing, broke my heart and left me stranded a few days before my 29th birthday, right before my grandfather became terminally ill and died, and left me alone to deal with everything while she up and left, took the dog, and bought a house.  Well, I am so fucking happy to say that I sold it!  I never have to have the reminder of that horrible person and time in my life sitting on my shelf mocking me and being a constant reminder to worst heartbreak I have ever suffered.  The best thing is, it went to a great couple from SF who work at Google, who loved my awesome custom design and drove down to pick it up!  I wish them nothing but the best, and I can finally rest easy just knowing that at least someone will get the joy and happiness from that ring that I originally intended.  I wish it could have been the woman I loved…but I learned the hard way that I’ll never buy a ring again.


Oh and after all she did to me (did you hear about the change incident where she barged in my house and left me a bag of $10 in pennies to pay for the remainder of the bills she owed me?  I went public on Facebook with that, and it felt damn good, too) I receive an email from her.


Hey Ian.

I dont know if u got my text or not so I want to send this by email so I know you get it.

I just wanted to say I’m sorry for leaving you the change. I’m sorry I handled lots of things immaturely. I was so hurt and angry from the blog posts and what u emailed my family, that I acted out of anger and it was wrong. And I’m sorry.

And I’m so sorry to hear about your grandfather. I know how close you were to him, and I’m so sorry for your loss.

I really do wish you happiness and wish you the best in life. I know both of us were hurt and angered by lots of things
But I hope we can put that behind us and move on with our lives.

I wish you all the best.


Sorry I didn’t have a chance to respond, I was too busy burying my grandfather.  Thanks for leaving me when I needed you most.  Leave me alone for life.
