Hason Posted August 24, 2017 Share Posted August 24, 2017 My girlfriend and I recently broke up. Just for a bit of context we were together for just under a year. We got along really well humor wise and loved going out together but didn't have all the same interests - she loved getting drunk a lot more than i did, i'm more of an intellect, but we made it work. All in all, our conversations were really good and interesting. It was really complicated early on because she lived with her ex for the first 3 months of our relationship. It was horribly uncivil between them two, they are not on the greatest terms. She had high expectations when he moved out and we started spending a lot more time together. Also just for context, I am from a higher socio-economic demographic than she is, with a very safe white collar job whereas she is studying not the greatest degree at university. The reason for her breaking up with me was: "i always feel like i'm disappointing you, you're always angry at me when i don't do something right and i hate that i'm not able to make you happy. also there wasn't enough time between me/my ex's and our relationship for me to be emotionally ready. it's not that i want to get back together with him you know how much i hate him. but i haven't been single for over 5 years and i don't know how to live by myself. i know i've gotten too attached to you and i can't live my life relying on other people. like look at the way i acted when you went back to (enter my hometown), i ing went off at you for visiting your friends and family and ditching me. i just need time to learn how to live without being dependent on somebody. I really really think we have potential and the next time we date, if we date, it's going to be for real." As somebody who hasn't been in her situation, I'm trying to be empathetic but it is very difficult for me to understand her perspective. Do you all think she's talking sh*t, or do you think she's telling the truth? Honestly I'm just very confused and sad because I don't understand her rationale, I'd just like some insight (preferably from people who have been in similar situations) on what this actually means?
