Mount Everest Trip Analogy

I've noticed something wrong with the male race. See, I don't notice these things often but, when I notice them and i ain't got nothing to do with them, I feel that they must be addressed. Well, I've noticed a lot of bitterness towards ex-girlfriends. This really makes no since, I mean I'm sure there's certain situations that dictate something like this, but what a lot of dudes do, really ain't right. It's like a tourist being angry at their tour guide of Mount Everest just because the tour ended.

So, you and the tour guide struggle to get up the mountain together, both of y'all working together to get to what's at top. Yea, their might be some disagreements on the way their, some stalling, and some second thoughts. But, nonetheless, the two of y'all make it to the destination, the peak of Mount Everest. Once their you really enjoy it, both of y'all. It's just a feeling of accomplishment, and a feeling of being on top of the world, it is Everest after all. You think that that's were you want to be. But than, the guide decides to back down. Of course you follow slowly, not wanting to leave. But, your guide goes down alone. You take your time hoping that the guide will turn around and lead you back up to the mountain, but through the blizzard you can't see the guide, but still you hope and continue to descend the rocky slope as slowly as possible. Once on the ground you can decide to thank your guide for the trip, and stay in touch, secretly hoping that you'll be invited back again. Or, you can complain that the trip was to short and demand a refund, holding an internal grudge, telling your friends to avoid that guide service if at all possible.

I know that this may or may not make since, yea, its a stretch of analogy. But really, it's true. I really hope that if you have feelings like that toward an ex that this helps you put how wrong what your doing into perspective.
