myPod Shuffle #4 - Father Figure
I was not a big Wham! fan, but when George Michael came out with his solo album "Faith" in early 1988, I was hooked on the music. I loved this entire album. This song in particular spoke of obsessive love and desire. Something I well understood as I finished my third year of college and looked forward to turning 21 that summer. Something you'd too understand if you've ever experienced unrequited love.
While starting off the year so promisingly, Unrequited Love 2 (UL2) completely and utterly destroyed all my fantasies and delusions within the next several months by sleeping with the most unlikely person and then telling me about it. That act also played heavily on my own insecurities as I began to seriously ponder what was wrong with me that he would chose her over me. I was so confident and sure of myself, and it all fell apart that spring.
Looking back now, I think I became more aggressive and not so passive in future relationships. I don't know that I ever dated anyone again for any particular length of time until I met my now DH. I also think it started a bit of a possessive streak sometimes leaning on the edge of obsessiveness as well. Something that didn't change for several years until I met OF4.
But that's a different story... and a whole different set of songs...
