Daily PFFT! - Girlfriends
My PFFT! for the day is Girlfriends. I just broke up with mine this week. The bad part about it is that I have spent the better (and worse) part of almost four years with her. I loved her as much as I possibly thought I could, and told her this every day.
Just recently, I started thinking about proposing to this fine woman. I felt that she was the one I wanted to spend the rest of my life with, but she apparently didn't feel the same. The weekend after I talked to her seriously about it, she started acting strange. After finally talking to her about it, I found out that I scared her about talking about marriage because she wasn't ready to take that step. And because of that, we mutually decided to break up. We agreed to stay good friends, but I wonder how long that will last.
The marriage idea wasn't the only reason for breaking up. She also told me that I was "suffocating" her and she didn't have time to worry about me with everything else she was doing (which is ok... she's a sophomore in college, an RA, involved in a sorority, and a cheerleader). I understood this completely and agreed with her.
What makes me go PFFT! is that she sent an email today replying to one I sent her. She said that she was upset one night and went to talk to one of her male friends about it. She stated that she talked to him for over an hour about everything that was pissing her off, and he actually listened to her. What pisses me off about this is that she would NEVER talk to me about what was making her mad or what was wrong with her. Her reasoning? Because the one time she was upset, I acted like I didn't care. Nevermind I had just finished working one of the worst nights at work and was ready for bed.
So for you ladies out there that have boyfriends, I can only say that I hope you tell your man everything that you don't like or makes you mad. If you don't, then PFFT you! If you do and he doesn't listen or acts like he cares, then PFFT to him.
