Eventually, he just became so emotionally distant that I had to break up with him. It’s only been a few weeks and he’s already gone and deleted all evidence of our relationship on Facebook (we’re still Facebook friends), probably so the next woman can’t see it. It seems like yesterday we were talking about our future together. She sees him occasionally, but doesn’t make him feel loved or appreciated or safe.It breaks my heart that while I was investing more and more into the relationship (for instance, slowly forming a bond with his young daughter), he was checking out and didn’t bother to tell me about it. She doesn’t have the conviction to either give him a chance or to let him go. Eventually – eventually – Jennifer does the slow fade, and hopes that John finally gets the hint – although she never told him anything directly.
Your boyfriend or fiancé shouldn’t avoid having a conflict with you, even if he loves you deeply.
The coward today isn’t somebody who backed down from a fight, refused to walk into a haunted house or said no to facing the dragon. We don’t live in a Game of Throne-esque world where going to a bar means getting into a fight.
The coward today can be dressed in a suit, speaks a little too well, shows the world that he can fit in and above all else, makes sure that he doesn’t do anything different for fear of upsetting people with who he really is.
I think we’re all victim to this and we’ve met such people. It’s a gloomy fact of life, but a fact nonetheless.
I was with my most recent boyfriend for seven months. We were at the meeting friends, parents and (his) kid’s stage.
