been seeing this girl. like her. like her alot. perhaps love.
sure, i say 'i love you' but it was because i thought it's what she wanted to hear.
a couple of weeks ago, something just struck while i was with her. i felt like we really connected on one day, and i'm falling for her.
been feeling like this around her since. and i've been in love before, so i know what this shit is. a highway to irrational selfless decisions.
i should note, i didn't let those 3 words slip out for about the first 2 months i was dating her. pretty sure she was hinting towards it one day, so i went through with it
i called it.
i ended up falling for her. last night she dumped me on her birthday when i drove out to the other side of the city to just see her. a really long and depressing drive home.
i had forgotten it was her birthday, but she said she wasn't mad. also i'd gotten her a good present earlier.
hey, at least you went out with her for a time. some people (like me) have never even gone out with anyone yet
a couple of my friends have been telling me that same thing. i kind of wish i had stayed single. i havn't been able to eat anything since she told me. it feels really fucking lonely. worse than i did girlfriendless previously. and i don't have many friends, or any other girls im interested in. i work too much to meet other girls.
i sent her the obligatory 'friends with benefits' offer, but it sounded alot more desperate than intended and i never heared back. she said she wants to stay friends and hang out, but i think i may have just lost an awesome friend with this.
also from start to finish i cannot recall a single arguement while we were dating. drama-free significant others are next to impossible to come by.
I don't know for "drama", but argument-free relationship almost never last long.
Arguments are an important part of relationship communication. Skip that part, and you start holding grudges.
>>8 old wives tale to make people with imperfect relationships feel superior to people with better ones.
It is possible to disagree without argument.
Hey, I never said "violent argument with plates flying everywhere".
OP here on a different computer.
i havn't been able to eat since she told me a couple of days ago. both food and porn make me feel really sick.
she texted me last night asking for my AIM, so maybe she feels like talking about some things - or at least is serious about wanting to keep me as a friend (either i'd feel great about at this point).
If you have the courage to, tell her exactly how you are feeling. She'll help you keep your distances, and it most probably will help you recovering faster.
i think i'm doing a little better today. early this morning i ate some cherries. bought something small for my dinner at work, for later.
i think if i see her online tonight, i'm gonna just tell her some things that've been bugging me. how bad i feel for forgetting her birthday. how bad i feel for drinking around her, when i could tell she didn't like my drunken company. that i shouldn't have told her i loved her before i actually did (though i fell for her just weeks later). and i wish i'd gotten to spend more time out of the week with her. thats all i can think of right now. these things are just gonna keep bugging me until i actually say it to her. think this might be a bad idea?
At the point you're at, I'm not sure what is a good or a bad idea. Your call on that one.
i ended up doing it(typing out almost exactly what was above). she said she was gonna call me later. she already called but i had my ringer off, so i left her a message to call again - oops.
i hope she didn't take this as i'm blaming myself for the breakup, rather than just a sencere apology for things i really feel bad about doing.
she ended up taking it kinda of as me blaming myself for things, i think. not sure though.
seems everythings somewhat cool with us though, and she wants to hang out sometime. both of us are busy for a couple of weeks tho :|
success..of a sort. still miss her :/
we're talking like normal now online. still not eating well.
if any females are reading, what do you think is going through her mind? she dumped me, but how is this affecting her? after 5 months and sharing a bed many times, how do you think shes feeling over this?
well i guess i know how she feels now. talking on aim she told me the guy shes interested in is moving in with her. an invitation which was never even hinted at for me.
so she must have offered her room to him weeks ago. surely he wouldn't move here without a certain place to stay.
i feel betrayed. and this is /JUST/ as i was starting to feel alright again. i was even considering going bowling with her and other people tonight.
Man, I feel for you. Not really the same circumstances but I bet I kinda feel the same. Clench your fists and hold on. It's all I can say to you...
six ----- ----- all in a row
thanks. having the support of my very few IRL friends, and people who took the time to read my problem and sympathize helps a little
some more has happened. i cried, first of all. which i have some shame of, being 21. then today i got online and she asked if i was there. i ended up unloading everything demanding the facts, telling her how fucked up what she did is, and even told her about my (not) eating.
> i sent her the obligatory 'friends with benefits' offer
How is that obligatory? What the fuck? "I know you just broke up with me, but we can still have sex if you want." Do people actually do that?? Is that actually customary??
