lillady898 Posted November 15, 2004 Share Posted November 15, 2004 I overreacted on my boyfriend who's away at college, again. Everything got so perfect, yet I always ruin it and give him doubts. Here is how I have been ruining things after everything got so perfect for the past 2 weeks. First, he tells me to call him at 2 am. I fall asleep and sleep through the alarm I set to wake me up just in case that happened. Now, he thinks I just forgot and this is another one of my excuses. (I admit... I do have that terrible habit of making excuse. I am trying to break it, though). Another day, he told me to get on instant messanger at a certain time (3 am). I feel asleep and slept through the alarm again. Again, he thinks that is another excuse for forgetting. Okay, and then yesterday I overreacted. I called him a few times throughout the day. He was busy so couldn't answer. Yesterday was a busy day for me as well, so when he tried calling me back I couldn't answer either. So, I finally get a hold of him at night while I'm driving and try to have a conversation with him. He is doing something else and is only slightly listening to me, but is listening nevertheless. I freak out because he's not listening and say, "Fine. Why don't you just call me when you actually want to talk to me." Expecting him to say that he does want to talk, he just says alright, and we hang up. I call him back, freaking out that he doesn't ever want to talk. He says, "I've tried calling you all day!" We get in an argument and I hang up on him. I call him at 2 am and he says he's too tired to talk. I get angry and yell at him, hanging up on him again. (Another bad habit when I'm angry). Ok, now today I try calling him but he was studying. So he couldn't answer. I finally get a hold of him and try to have a nice conversation. But, I flip out when he says he has to go study so quickly, after we've only talked for less than 5 minutes the past 2 days. I say "F* it" and hang up on him yet again. I call him back later after I'm done doing what I'm doing, and we get in an awful argument after I ask him if he still loves me or not. Yet, anotehr problem. I am so upset about stuff lately for some reason and I can't help but overreacting. I feel bad, but when I tried apologizing, he said, "I don't mean to sound rude, but I really have to study. Don't call me anymore when I say I have to study." That got me upset, but what made it worse was this. He said if I can't handle that, then we'll just have to break up. I hate those words so much. THEN, he said one of his friends told him that this is why he'll never have a girlfriend during college. Takes up too much time. That scares me that he'd even bring that up. I don't know how I ruin things so easily. I just have been overreacting. He's calling me tonight. Has anyone ever overreacted about things as bad as I do? What should I have done differently? How can I make things better and STOP overreacting? Thanks! I feel like a psycho girlfriend right now. I annoy myself sometimes. Quote Link to comment
