The Break-up

heartbreakI have been with my boyfriend for over 5 & 1/2 years. That is more than half a decade. That is a long time.

Today he broke up with me, saying we should “go our separate ways.” In a TEXT message. 5 & 1/2 years and I get a text message.

When he came home I cried some more – a lot more. I don’t cry pretty so it wasn’t a selling point. But the fact that he doesn’t want to get married is what ended it. I wanted someone who would commit to me and provide me with security; he wanted a girlfriend.


The sad fact is that he will find a “non-crazy” girl and marry her. I am just not enough.

I am so sad.
