Bartok Posted April 30, 2010 Share Posted April 30, 2010 So I've been seeing this girl for half a year. Everything's great, until the past few weeks. These past few weeks I've been swamped with schoolwork. I'm working on projects for graduate school. To give you an idea of how busy I am, yesterday I started working at 8AM and stopped at 3AM this morning, then woke up again at 8AM this morning to get right back at it. Due to the nature of what I do (film), there are occasionally times when I'm just completely swamped with work. This is one of those times. She knows this, and knows that things will clear up soon, but she's still being so... crazy. I still try to see my girlfriend when I can - I've seen her three times this week despite barely having time for it, usually when I go out for lunch/dinner because I'm stepping away from my work anyway. She, however, is not handling it well. She constantly complains about "hating this", referring to how we can't spend that much time together at the moment. She says she feels like she's the only one making any effort to see eachother - which is not only untrue, but completely unreasonable considering I was working 19 hours yesterday and simply cannot see her outside of meal breaks. She also feels she's the only one who tries to initiate contact (even though I text/facebook her off and on throughout the day, calling her when I have a few minutes, and I start the conversations at least as often as she does). This is... concerning. She's been great so far, but recently she's been so whiny and needy. She acts like I need to make more time for her, when I simply cannot, and when I turn the tables and ask her to do something when she's busy, she does the exact same thing I'm doing now. Difference is, I understand and I'm cool with it because we're both busy people in school, while she whines and tries to blame me for everything. I might be rambling now, but this is putting a huge strain on me. I have to get this project done tomorrow, this drama is hurting my work, and I just don't know how to tell her to... well... take a damn chill pill. I love her but she almost seems like a completely different person these past few weeks. Unreasonable, not laid-back, very different from the woman I fell in love with. I'm hoping it's just a phase, but dear god, it's driving me insane right now. As if I don't have enough stress on my plate as it is. Link to comment
