If you arrived here from dumpthatjerk.hannahjoypublishing.com, its because we've changed our name. It was okay to vent about men for a while, but now we felt the need to come up with a solution: share from a woman's point of view about relationship issues that concern men.
Some of My Breakup Stories-Ones that Give You Laughs, and/or Ones that Leave Scars (or Both)
I call this Guy "The Runaway"
In high school, I was dating a guy for
two weeks, who out of those 14 days had been gone for about
eight-because he had stolen an ATV vehicle and had run away from
He technically broke up with me first,
through another person. However, I was really thinking of breaking up
with him, so it didn’t matter, but here is how it happened.
Someone came up to me at the place
where we were supposed to meet. I was an hour late (couldn’t find a
ride, had to walk to where I was going), and as soon as I arrived
someone had told me “[The Runaway] wants to break up with you.”
All I could think of to say was
“great!” and was relieved. But, truthfully, I was a little disappointed that he beat me to it. I
mean, that was the only reason I had just walked an hour to get to
where we were supposed to meet.
It would have given me great
satisfaction to tell him I was dumping him because he had ran away
from home-something I would never had done (at least not at
that time). On the other hand, I was enthralled that he
did the dirty work, so I got “off the hook” pretty easily. I didn't have to worry much about whether or not he wanted to be with me.
An Aside-From Today's Perspective: Now I shouldn't judge, I know....for any teen today who runs away from home...
I would urge you to seek help as soon as possible. Call a hotline, talk to a teach, call a friend's family or someone. However, if you come from a good family and still are running away call home and try to talk to your parents because they love you.
