The perils of oversensitivity

The past blind items are now all closed. Please forgive me but if we don’t move on, I won’t be able to keep up with your guesses. And seeing how many of you try to sneak in more than one try, I’m need to stay on top of the pile. Sorry smutters. I hope you’ll understand.

Here’s the next installment.

Remember when we talked about Dealbreakers?

Looks like I’m not the only one who has issues with oversensitivity….

He has had his fair share of past success. And he has been through the love chain several times. But in spite of his ordinary good looks and his sense of humour, our subject has never been able to hold on to a long term relationship.

However, unlike his Hollywood contemporaries, it isn’t philandering and slutting that has led to his poor track record. It’s actually his emotional tendencies that drive the ladies away.

Take his last girlfriend for example. It started harmlessly enough with long, profound, therapeutic conversations that lasted all night. She thought it was refreshing that a dude could talk about his feelings for so long without being distracted by other more immature pursuits. But then the lengthy discussions escalated into everyday lengthy discussions and these resulted in lengthy letters and even lengthier emails. And then, instead of going out to party, “holding each other” all night became the norm.

She was alarmed but not enough to bolt. After all, she thought to herself, most celebrities have their quirks…right? And so she stuck with it. Until that fateful night. His birthday, when they celebrated privately and then capped it off with what she thought was a standard session of lovemaking. Except that afterwards he claimed that he was so moved by their connection that He.

Actually.Started.Weeping. And I’m sure I don’t have to tell you what happened next. She was outta there within a couple of weeks.

I’m telling you. Sensitivity is really overrated. Let’s hope he’s figured this out by now. Otherwise his current romantic entanglement is not going to last very long.

One guess only. You have til Thursday. Good luck.

If you missed Part 1 of this blind item, catch up here before taking a look at the 2nd clue.

So you know about the sensitivity problems. And you also know why he got dumped. But would it surprise you to learn that he's not above burning an 'our songs' cd just to get her back? Complete with a written description of why each song was selected and the emotions that were brought to the surface when he listened to them??? Delivered in a handbound diary??? Sure…some of you might consider this sweet and endearing. Needless to say, the girlfriend didn't. She let him down lightly and had to endure more tears and more endless soliloquies about feelings and emptiness and blah blah blah. But after about a week, he sought support elsewhere, and I'm happy to tell you she's finally cut the cord.
