We’ve all found ourselves saying that at one time or another, right? I’ve been silently thinking that quite a bit lately. Recently, Kiwi has been talking about a boy she met at work, CNG (Cute New Guy). He’s a year older than her, he’s tall, has a vehicle, a job, goes to college and knows what he wants to do with his life. He seems to be a nice guy, he’s a cutie. Since he’s Hispanic, I’m hoping she’ll learn a little Spanish from him here and there also. She says she loves his accent. I told her if I was 18, I’d probably have the hots for him too lol. Now, let’s take a look at KLB (Kiwi’s Loser Boyfriend). He’s about 5’…a munchkin, wimpy (he uses guilt trips on her more often than not), has no job, he spends all his spare time playing Xbox 360, he comes from 2 loser (and I mean L-O-S-E-R) parents, he doesn’t treat her anywhere near the way she deserves to be treated, never has. He monopolizes her time, making sure she has no time for her friends at school. She has to go see him if she wants to see him, he doesn’t lift a finger to do anything for her, never has. All take and no give with him. He has no vehicle, clearly no ambition. Everyone in her life, friends and family alike, can’t stand him. We all see how he treats her, she doesn’t.
Now on the radar, CNG. She’s been talking to him for a little over a month now. They text each other all the time, talk on the phone, he also has a gf. Kiwi and CNG have an agreement that if things don’t work out with the others, they’ll more than likely be together. A couple of days after I found out that Kiwi had secretly stayed overnight at KLB’s house (she never slept with him thank goodness!), she invited CNG over to the house to watch movies. Needless to say, I was very surprised, and very pleased! So far, I like CNG and more importantly, he’s not KLB. I found out a few days later that she let him kiss her. Yay! She’s been saying for the longest that KLB was the one she’s meant to be with. (Puke) But here lately, she’s seeing things in a different light…even before CNG came along, she’s jsut not willing to admit that yet. A couple of days ago, she went to see KLB to study. A couple of hours after she got home, CNG came over to watch a movie with her again. Me and Tater were both very happy to see that! Kiwi had the biggest smile on her face when she brought him in the house 🙂
Kiwi’s told her best friend (KBFF) that she really likes CNG, but she loves KLB (gag me). KBFF, who also works for me, told me she wanted to punch KLB in the throat yesterday. I asked her what he did, she said nothing… she jsut doesn’t like him. Even though I don’t agree with Kiwi running around behind anyone’s back, for now I’ll keep silent until KLB is no longer a factor in her life. Then I’ll have the ‘that wasn’t the right way to handle things’ talk. In almost all cases, I’m against two-timing. But having said that, KLB is a piece of shit and she’s not married to him (thank God) and obviously no longer all that committed. And I also feel that CNG is helping her break away from KLB’s grasp. SO and I talk about this often, he thinks she’s going to get caught. I’m hoping she dumps KLB before that happens. I don’t want her over-ridden with guilt. She doesn’t need that. She jsut needs a clean break. I told SO that I feel that part of the reason she stays with KLB for now, is because she knows she needs to get her grades up in math and he’s helping her. I’m hoping that after school is out, KLB will get the boot, for good. Three more weeks til school is out, I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
