lovesick girl…

I’ve dated real “winners” in my day, and I’ll tell you all about each of these precious beings in future posts so be sure to keep an eye out for them, for now I’m going to focus on how my whole roller coaster ride of relationships began. Now keep in mind, I was what I self-diagnosed myself as “Love-sick”. What I mean by that is, all I ever wanted out of life, was to find my one true love. To get married, and be happy (notice I didn’t mention kids!!!). I don’t know why I was this way to be honest. I think it may have to do with the fact that I was brought up to believe that I wasn’t allowed to move out of the house unless I was married, so I associated being married with the freedom to live my own life.
So off course, this gal sets herself on a mission to find her “one true love” (when I say that in my head, I think it’s important you know that I have Ursula’s voice from The Little Mermaid saying “the kiss of true love” and then it breaks off into the whole “you’ll have your looks, your pretty face” song, don’t ask). I didn’t know what qualities I wanted in my future husband, I just knew that I wanted to be married and out of the house by the age of 20. Being 16 at the time, I figured 4 years would have been plenty of time to meet someone and get to know them, but I had to act fast. Meeting someone in school wasn’t very promising, I mean I had my crushes, believe me I did. I never talked to them though, in fact they never even knew I existed. I was in “love” with them from afar. I would doodle their names on pieces of paper, I would figure out their schedule and just sort of casually meet my friends in the same areas and sneak glances, and I never DARED tell anyone who I liked. If I did my crush might find out, and I just couldn’t risk it. In fact, I went as far as telling my friends I was crushing on someone else, just to steer them away from the truth. Yes, I was that terrified. Now I could be wrong, but I feel like younger generations may not actually understand what personal anguish it was to have your crush find out you like them, and them not like you back. It ruined the whole fantasy because then it was almost like you couldn’t like them anymore, because you lost the hope that they would like you back. That’s a shitty fantasy, and to a girl like younger me, it was downright terrifying, because how the hell was I going to make a wedding happen at this rate?!?! This was going to be the beginning of what at the time seemed to be an endless search. I barely even started.
Needless to say, I never met my one true love in high school, and I never got married at the age of 20 like I had planned, or 25…or even 30…hell, I’m still not married. I did meet the love of my life though, and I learned things about myself along the way. Important things, that everyone should learn about themselves before getting married. So if I had to go back now, to the age of 16, I would definitely have a different set of priorities, and if someone would have actually proposed to me, at that age, well they’d get a hard no, but thanks for playing.

Happy New Year to all my fellow readers! I am truly sorry that I have not posted for a while. I have had quite a busy year though! For those of you who have not joined the facebook group “From the nuthouse, With love” I have two things to say, the first is…JOIN THE GROUP! I need more people in there!…the second is that it has been decided, the nuthouse will be on youtube this year! I’m super excited to make videos for all of you. The videos will consist of me, your friendly neighbourhood nutball talking/venting/ranting, as well as skits! and some other pretty random things…yes, I am conjuring up a team of dedicated actors/actresses (ok maybe not dedicated…and probably not even actors or actresses, just anyone willing to be on youtube really) to make fools of themselves for the purpose of making the nuthouse even more awesome 🙂
Because this is a new year, let’s all take a moment to reflect on some amazing things that have happened to us in 2013, and share it with your fellow inmates here! or on twitter…or in the facebook group! I will go first.
For me 2013 was full of amazing surprises, I’ve always been a big believer in love, but I never expected it to actually happen to me, I met the most amazing man. I would say he was the man of my dreams but in all honesty, even my dreams couldn’t conjure up someone as amazing as he is. In August we adopted a 3 month old Doberman/Lab/Sheppard/Husky puppy. She has the look of a Doberman with Lab ears and gorgeous blueish/white eyes (pix of her will be posted on twitter today so if you’re not following me yet, get to it! @casadelnutso), this was a super big deal to me because I’ve never owned a dog before but have wanted one my whole life. She’s freaking crazy, but I mean what do you expect when your mummy is not only the president of a nuthouse, but also a client, and daddy…well he’s crazy enough to date a gal who is a president/client of a nuthouse so…it’s safe to say we’re hilariously crazy little family now. Also, in mid-November El-Boyfriendo and I moved in together and now live in an amazing apartment together. So if you have all be wondering where the heck I have been, I’ve been going crazy!!! In the very best way possible!
Now that you’ve gotten a look at my 2013…Let us know what your best moments were in your world! I look forward to hearing from you all!

Dear Cupid…

Posted in Love and Relations with tags , , , , , on February 14, 2013 by fromthenuthousewithlove

When I first began my dating career, and yes I’m calling it a career because it’s starting to feel like a chore these days. “Vitamin P! Professional Dater Extraordinaire! Here’s my card, call me!”. I accepted the position you offered with high hopes, I was young and apparently foolish. I’m starting to feel like it was one of those scam jobs now though. You know the ones I’m talking about, where they promise you all these perks, like a benefit package, vacation days and all that, plus a pay raise after a 3 month probation. Then one day you wake up and you realize you’ve been there for 6 months and nothing has kicked in. It’s like that with me, except the benefit package would be a husband (or at least a life mate), and instead of 6 months, I’m lookin at a good 15 years of service. What I’m saying is, I’m taking you to the labour board, and I’m going to sue you for loss, damages caused by loss and false promises.
I’m sorry it has come down to this Cupid, I truly am. It’s not that I hate you or anything, but quite frankly I think that someone who makes a living out of setting people up by shooting them with an arrow should probably have better aim. It’s not like this is your first day on the job. For cryin’ out loud people in dart tournaments have better aim, and some of them have only been doing that for a few months! You’re well over 1000 years old from what I’ve heard, I don’t know how long you’ve been matchmaking, but it’s definitely been longer than I’ve been alive, which by default should give you more training and experience then people who make a living as a sniper. I would contact them myself and have them shoot me a potential mate, but I fear I’d end up at a funeral instead.
With that being said, I am hereby resigning from my position with you at Valentine’s Day Inc. We had a few laughs, very few…well, once. You told me you hated me actually, and I laughed awkwardly, because at the time, I didn’t know if you were drunk, or sober. That’s ok, I’ve gotten over it, it’s all water under the bridge. I have actually contacted the armed forces myself, and asked them if they had any openings in sniper training, I start tomorrow! So, you should probably watch your ass, you know, just in case I miss…

two lefts don’t make a right…

Posted in Life, Love and Relations, Random Thoughts with tags , , , , on February 11, 2013 by fromthenuthousewithlove

With Valentine’s day around the corner, I have been doing quite a bit of thinking about my love life, and how non-existent it actually is. As a matter of fact, it’s on the list of endangered species. A large majority of this is my own fault. I have actually made the decision to be single, with the “if the right man comes along I’ll go for it” intention. As noble as this statement is, I feel it may have been the wrong approach, because when you wait for the “Right” man, you are embarking on a journey that leaves you with an entire series of “Left” men. Men that have tried to conquer the obstacle courses which lead to the path of their possible future with me, apparently my course is too difficult and they have been “Left” behind unable to keep up. For you gamers out there, that would be the equivalent of playing God of War with a difficulty level of “Dare you to at least get half way through” if there was such a level.
In writing this, I am not saying that these Left Men are horrible people, I myself have been a “Left Girl” to…well, everyone I have dated that didn’t end up wanting me, and it’s a learning experience. Two left’s don’t make a right…they make a down…as in your relationship is going downhill. However, if you have a “Left Man/Woman” and they find the “Right Man/Woman” logic clearly states that, if you go left, then right you are moving forward, it’s going upward…movin on up…and that’s precisely why, as much as it sucks waiting around for this alleged right character, I cannot abandon the intention that I have stated at the beginning of this post. See Diagram below for a clearer interpretation.


I will however say this, to the one that does manage to get through. You will have completed something that no other was able to accomplish, you have powered through with endless strength and effort, broken down walls, taken out guards, survived traps and pitfalls, and you managed to do it with a positive attitude and a smile on your face at the end. You are a hero, and will forever be treated as one.

why are you still single???….

Posted in Love and Relations, Random Thoughts with tags , , , , , , on September 28, 2012 by fromthenuthousewithlove

I have been in the dating game for quite some time, during this time I’ve been asked the question “why are you still single?” I’ve never really known how to answer this, nor have I ever really cared to. However one night I was in one of my over analytical moods, and the question popped up in my head, and I felt compelled to break it down so that the next time someone asks me this question, I can direct them here. Not to toot my own horn or anything but I am astounded that in a city with millions of people there is not one person out there that I deem as “dateable”. In speaking with some friends, I have heard the ol “you’re just too picky” response. I entertained that idea for a while, until I came to the conclusion that no, I’m not. I have my reasons for why things don’t work out with people and many people may think my reasons are absurd, and I suppose from someone else’s perspective I am, from my own I feel everything I say and do is justified to who I am.  For example if I were to meet someone named “Frejlic” my first instinct would be, to not date him because the “j” and the “i” really fuck with my eyes. Realistically how am I suppose to write his name with hearts if I can’t even look at his name?? Also, do you pronounce the J or is it silent? Which leads me to assume Frejlic may have an accent. Most girls love a man with an accent, I on the other hand am forbidden to love a man with an accent. In fact, with the exception of Australian, English and Irish accents, I believe I am quite allergic to them. I haven’t ever had an allergy test but I am quite certain if I were to be tested, you would find accents right there on the top of the list, along with brussel sprouts, curry, and mushrooms. In other words dating Frejlic would actually be hazardous to my health, which is equal to a valid reason in my books, and I’m sure you will all agree.

With that out-of-the-way, let’s assume I met someone else named Dave. Dave is attractive, has no accent, his name is not complicated, score! However, Dave knows this about himself and becomes cocky, and thinks “well, I’m the cat’s meow, so why should I have to settle with one woman, when I can have my pick of the litter any night I want” and he becomes one of those “I’m too good to settle down” type of guys and ends up being single til he’s 47, and then ends up married to someone who makes him miserable because he’s frustrated at himself for not settling down when he had the chance. This quality found in a majority of men these days I am also, deathly allergic to.

So, in answer to the question “why are you still single?” It’s because I choose to be, to avoid the torture of living my last moments on earth with hives, a swollen face, followed by a slow gruelling death.
