He was not a fan:


Cajuns are an emotional people. We can pretend that things don't bother us, but goddamn it if they do. I will try to put into words what has transpired. My five year relationship is over with E.Shrew. For good.

It is no secret that we have had bumps in the road. Our relationship would pause, stop, and restart again. Sometimes 8 1/2 months later. There was always something pulling us back together. Was it simply a case of better than nothing? I don't know.

What I do know is that life is too short to not be happy. You will not find me jumping for joy or doing cartwheels. I am pretty bummed about the event. I'll be far happier in the long run however.

Before you ask, I have not met anyone. It will just be me and my dogs Boudreaux and Pierre for quite some time. I'll focus hard on sparing my friends from any excessive whining. I think the term for that is atariageism.

Being single is not something that I relish. It seems foreign and places me completely out of my comfort zone. If you see me walking down the street with a pouty lip out, a hug and fub would be nice. I do look forward to happier times.

zeitzeuging - that's a pretty big word for a Cajun! ;)

Seriously, sorry to read about calling it quits with your partner. Life happens. Not in the ways we'd always like it to turn out, but one should find their happiness.

Now, go do, that voodoo, that you do, so well.

Sometimes being out of your comfort zone can really bring your true strengths to light.

You're a total catch, and deserve to be happy. It sounds like you're on the right path to finding that happiness :)

Damn it, I'm really sorry! But I can't imagine guys not queueing secretly to be partners of such a hot man. It's good to treat your fame with a grain of salt but fame also helps - you just get known. For some time, enjoy the advantages of being single (doesn't mean "alone" - just look how many friends you have!). Spend some time with yourself, listen to yourself. Avoid going from love to hate. A lot of guys do it but it's unproductive and unhealthy. Maybe try reflecting on what you could have been doing wrong. You can count me in the number of your spiritual supporters. Hang in there. Big hug!

P.S. Try googling for atariageism. Only one site showed up to me ;-)

Sorry bud.

But don't remain single too long. Remember, you have a greater statistical chance of getting struck by lightning than finding a boyfriend when you are 40...

Brett, you're gonna be OK. You're obviously a resilient guy with a good attitide. Just take it one day at a time and enjoy the experience. And be sad or bummed out -- or slutty -- when you need to be. Everything changes and your feelings about this will too. Be a good boy....

Your an attractive guy... seem sweet... funny, albeit a little strange... and that's just what I've picked up on in the short time I've been reading your blog... Allow yourself to grieve, embrace it, then look for the positives, learn from this experience... take time for yourself, do nice things for you... then come find me... just sayin'

Mon ami, I'm sorry you're hurting. But you have a lot of gumpf inside, and if anything--you're a survivor. I think it's your zest for life, and your ability to see the humor in it (not to mention your ability to make fun of yourself)which will see you through. If you need anything, holler.
