I was too much of a coward to tell my ex I had lost interest. Instead, I started to send signals about my change of heart.
I showed up late on dates. I took a while before replying to her messages. I even flirted with other girls right in front of her. I’d talk about plans that clearly didn’t involve her. And when we were alone together, I’d dream out loud about how I wanted to travel, to experience more than “just this” from life.
But we’d still hook up. I couldn’t help that. She was too hot!
My friends told me I was a player. I guess I am…. But it’s not my fault that she wasn’t catching my hints!
Eventually, I just started to avoid her completely. I didn’t answer her texts or take her calls. I caught a lucky break at the end of the term and changed schools. I didn’t have to see her again.
She eventually stopped texting me, so I guess she finally got the message...
BadBoy disrespected his girl instead of telling her straight that it was over.
When it comes to relationships, hints are not enough... If it’s over, say it directly. Leaving the other person guessing wastes your time and theirs.
