🐓💪🏼🖐🏼😓😁

2. Tell us about your baes day with words.

He met with his dissertation chair during lunch. Aaaaand we texted a few times back and forth about plans and neither of us set up a time to FaceTime each other, so we didn't. I did tell him in relationship coaching yesterday that if we were in a relationship outside of TDB that I would have broken up with him last Thursday after coaching. I think that has maaaaybe put a damper on things.

 

3. What did you learn about your bae today?

That he meets with his dissertation chair during lunch...and that he thought Tuesday was Wednesday this week.

 

4. Scale from 1-10 how excited are you for TDB to be over?

Hahaha...uuuuuhm. I was really really excited for TDB and I still love the idea and love the TDB team, for real. But I am really ready for it to be over.

 

5. What is a character trait of your bae you wish you had?

He is able to be intrinsically motivated to work on things and seems to be able to just get things done when he needs to. Whereas I take a long time on things that don't have due dates.

Readers: if you have made it this far in my logs, props to you! For real. Especially since my logs have been a bit of a dud the past few days. I'm sorry about that.

2. Tell us about your baes day with words.

Uh... I texted Alicia Tuesday night after relationship coaching. When we were talking about our plans for the week, I had thought it was Wednesday, so I made plans thinking today was Thursday. So I tried to clear that up. Didn't hear back from her until the middle of the day today. It seemed like a positive text and that things were normal, but after that I didn't hear from her for the rest of the day...

3. What did you learn about your bae today?

From the texts she sent me, that she also sometimes confuses the days of the week, but I think that one is a standard occurrence for humans across the board. So I'm not sure that's something I learned about her.

I've really enjoyed this experience as a whole. It's unfortunate that things between me and Alicia haven't gone the best, but so much was learned! I'm excited for TDB to be over for two reasons: 1. Alicia and I are in this prolonged breakup stage. We know we're not going to continue dating after this, but we're committed to dating each other for a few more days. So that's kinda awkward. 2. I'm excited to take what I learned from TDB and apply it to future relationships. I think this has helped me learn how to navigate the commitment part of dating a little better.

5. What is a character trait of your bae you wish you had?

As a therapist, you get to hear a lot about people's problems. Whenever I'm in a situation like that, I tend to take on too much responsibility for their emotions and struggles. I don't compartmentalize well. Alicia seems to have that skill and I think it's super useful. So I wish I could do that better like she does.
