Marcus522 Posted April 10, 2017 Share Posted April 10, 2017 My girlfriend and I are graduate students and 25 years old. My girlfriend of 6 months says I lost her trust, and thinks that there is no way she will feel like I can get her trust back again. I was out with her and friends, and I had my hand on her friend's lower back for 5 seconds. She got really pissed, told me she needed time. 24 hours later, she then proceeded to breaking up with me. I was able to convince her to rethink the situation, and she said she needed no contact for a month. I was able to convince her to let me send her hand-written notes 2-3 times a week. Still, when I asked her when we could see each other normally again and be a couple, she says she really doesn't know. I did something stupid, where I said something I did not mean. I told her that I would hurt myself, and she explained to me that this really scared her. She now thinks that I may hurt her as well and is scared of me. I explained to her that I did not mean it, that I wouldn't do that because I have a loving family, and that I would go into counseling. Still, she's too fearful. We love each other, but she's just scared and lost trust in me for such a small thing, and I don't know what to do to regain her trust again. I know people are saying break up, but I would at least like to try before doing that. If I gave up, I would regret a lot, because I really do love this woman. If it matters, she's a conservative christian Korean girl. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
