Songs on Saturday ~ Sting

when a man’s in love, nothing else matters

I can sail a yacht, ride a horse, build a car, write poetry with gorgeous calligraphy, and take great photographs ~ but no matter how hard I’ve tried I haven’t always been able to keep the affections of someone I loved.

Trying to be perfect is perhaps the biggest mistake a man can ever make.

Please listen with understanding.

  1. Jack be strong and you deserve love. Try and let it go. It is hard…I admit getting rid of MR EX was hard but he was not worthy of me and I was silly to think he caredπŸ™„

    1. We all have those failed relationships in our past. As soon as we show unworthy and toxic people that we really care, they stop caring about us. That’s why they’re unworthy, toxic, poisonous, unfaithful liars. Ah well. Garfield, Marmaduke, and I love you. ❀ ❀ ❀

  2. Oh honey, I can totally relate… Why is it so damn difficult to keep the affections of someone you love? Is because we’re desperate? Not good enough? Try too hard? I don’t get it. If my soon to be ex husband wanted a wife that was loyal no matter what, willing to do anything in the world to make him happy and just absolutely crazy desperately in love with him even after 10 years of marriage… I would’ve been perfect.. But clearly I was not what he wanted.. Not at all. Now I feel like a dog without a master… And I’m wondering what’s wrong with the world or me because I would kill for someone to love me like I love(d) him….

    1. It might be that we try too hard, and then we get taken for granted. I have realised that I am worth much more than to give everything I have to a woman who just isn’t worth it, There’s nothing wrong with me, nor with the world, but it turns out there is a hell of a lot wrong with her. It’s time I moved on.
      Don’t feel like a dog without a master, you are much, much better than that. ❀ ❀ ❀

  3. Love that song! Sting is one of my favorites. Too bad he doesn’t crank them out like he used to. I think he got isolated and experimented with different types of music.

  4. Very nice Jack. If I were u I would stop trying to reach out. U have tried and now it’s time to just stop. For ur own sanity and dignity. We both have tried and still they havnt tried back.

    1. Maybe I’m just an irrepressible optimist. And maybe I don’t have much sanity left anyway ❀❀❀

      1. I just hate to see u suffer Jack. I am an optimist as well but I have tried and no response. So I figure these childish actions r not healthy for me. I am so stressed out and I’ll feeling I must think about myself right now. Remember the old saying ” if u love something set it free,
        If it was meant to be urs they will come back”. I’m just worried ’bout u. I totally understand what ur feeling. πŸ™πŸ’™
