My girlfriend (now ex) and I have been dating just shy of two years. Hey, two years
for high schoolers is nothing to feel bad about! We currently hold the award for
least awkward and least painful break up out of anyone, ever. It'll be a take a LOT
for someone to rob us of that title.
Emily and I just haven't been getting along as a couple the past week or so. Part of
that might just be PMS, but it's worth mentioning.
After dating almost two years, we'd yet to make it to first base properly. It sort of
bothered me, to be honest. We were dating without romance or intimacy beyond a quick
peck or holding hands.
Emily never stopped feeling a little bit awkward, since I was the first person she
ever dated, and recently (and this more than PMS is probably why we stopped getting
along as a couple) she started getting a crush on another girl and she said it
bothered her how diffferently she feels about the two of us. (She told me this post
Basically, the thought of ending it has been dancing around my mind for months, but
mostly it was just L'appel du Vide. Recently it's been more serious plans, but I was
going to sit her down and try to work things out before even mentioning a break up,
and I told her so.
We went to the Lion King 3 with a group of friends without seeing much of each other,
nothing all weekend except one text from her, but it was after midnight and I was at
a friends house so I ignored it, figuring "It's probably a break up text, and why
would she do that when she knows I'm with Tess?"
Then today she was like "We have to talk about stuff at lunch" and I thought "Hm.
That's no good, I have homework to finish up in lunch." so I said "Just to be
clear, are you going to break up with me? I'd rather just know now." she was thrown
off by me cutting off what was surely a well gone over explanation and said "I...
Well, sorta, I... I wanna be your BEST friend, you know?" so I said "Okay." and linkd
arms with her while assuring her it actually was while we walked to English.
We talked a little bit more about it on the way to lunch, but that was pretty much
So yeah. I'm not dating anyone now.
