My girlfriend and I of 2 and a half years are parting ways. Combination of things with her trusting me, somewhat smothering, and a alot of pressure. I just couldn't do it anymore but did I make the right decision? I know I loved her but I don't know if I was in love with her. We talked about our future, house, marriage, etc often.
Things that have steered me away is she would always ask "are you sure I am not just a comfort?" or "I love you more than you love me" And I hated those statements.
I'm not one who talks a lot about my emotions. I have had a rough life growing up and I've learned to deal with them so I tend to keep things inside. It kills me to hurt her, but I just don't feel as happy as I could be.
We are very different from each other. I am very outgoing, I make friends easily, I love sports, beer and just hanging out with my friends. She is very quiet, doesn't talk much around my other friends and not nearly as outgoing at all. And if I go out with some friends I would feel guilty cuz I didn't stay home with her, yet she doesn't want to go but still seems sad I left. Which by the way was once a week I would go out and be back by 1230 per her request.
I just hope I made the right decision. It kills me that I hurt her and I promised I wouldn't. She's gonna stay with her mom this weekend and we'll figure out how we are splitting things which isn't too hard considering she has much more than me.
Just wanted to get this out in the open and I know there are a lot of you that have been through what I am going through. I just don't want to second guess myself for breaking up with her. I know she hurts as do I. But I think I can get through this. Thanks for listening.
