Warning: warn possible harm
I remember *Tade. His boyish charm, his innocent face and welcoming smile, his laughter that rang soft and musical like a child's, his cheeky chuckle... Those little things that fell me in love with him. In the months that followed my broken heart I found myself wishing just one thing; if only Tade had come with a warning...
If Tade came with a warning his warning would have been *Warning! Commitment Phobe!* and that would have saved me the stress, the agony and the heartache.
Don't you just wish people came with warnings, an alert, a caveat if you will, so that at least you know what to expect. On the one hand life might be rather boring and devoid of adventure, yet on the other you'll be spared that heart break, that partnership with an unscrupulous business associate, that business deal gone sore, that betrayal by persons who only look out for themselves, that marriage to the mouse-turned-monster, that sexual assault by the man who should have come with a big *Warning! Rapist* warning... All the unpleasant stuff that other people have caused us to deal with.
That aside, let me ask you guys, I know we all like to think of ourselves as perfect harmless creatures but in truth none of us are. So if people came with Warnings what will your warnings read?
I think mine for potential lovers would be: *Warning! Emotional, Loves Hard, Occasionally Paranoid*
But generally this might be my warning: *Warning! My silence might bore you to death*,seeing as I've been told by two or three people in the last month that I'm terrible company. If I had this warning at least you don't form a bond with me and expect much. I'm sometimes as quiet as a mouse. As in, you can literally be in a room with me all day and forget I'm there, it's that bad. *Sobs*
If people came with warnings what would your warning read?
What would your Ex's/Partner's warning read?
