I don’t beleive in standard. A relationship can be better if we are just friends, and an honest answer should not have to be without emotion.
I broke up with my girlfriend, or rather, she broke up with me, because I joked about her dating a good friend of hers. She never forgets to make clear her love for this girl, and her preference for girls over boys. After taking the joke in, she dumped me, and started ‘dating’ her girlfriend. Only to shut me up. I made the joke before, and she laughed right along with me about it. Saying over and over she didn’t mind.
After explaining to me, she was saddened, and wanted to get back together, I declined. I didn’t think she should have acted on impluse and done something like that. She agreed, and shrugged it off.
Today she came to me crying, saying how she wanted to date me because I was her best relationship and she didn’t want me with anyone else. This offended me, not because it was untrue, but because it was greed.
'I love you, yeah, but also, no one can have you.'
Its a bit too much for me, so after asking if we’d ever be a thing, I asked her why? If I care more about you than I do any other girl, and you obviously have loved people before me and will love people after me, why just sit in the rut? Her answer again, was because only i wanna be with you.
This isn’t my thing. I don’t often engage in relationships, because I cannot really accept the idea that a relationship must be a boyfriend/girlfriend dynamic to make either of us happy with each other.
I don’t feel bad, but I think I should…I don’t know.
