Late one night I was checking messages on this social app and I met this girl. She lived a few towns away/ We started chatting online. We started messaging every day. Soon I knew I had started to fall in love with her. It was a jackpot! A match made in heaven!
Even though we hadn’t met, I knew how I felt about her. I asked her to be my girlfriend and she said yes!
It all went really well for a month. We even managed to meet up once when I was visiting my aunt in her town. It was the best day ever.
But then everything changed. Out of the blue she stopped messaging me. First, she wouldn’t text unless I did. Then she would just reply with just a one liner. Then she would read my message, but she wouldn’t message me back.
I kept asking her to meet up again. But each time she gave me a different excuse. I felt like I was forcing her to make a conversation. Like she had better things to do that speak to me.
I asked her if she wanted us to break up. But she cried and told me that I am all she wants. But I don't get it. Is what we have love? Does she regret loving me but can’t find a way to tell me? Or is she lying to me and seeing someone else?
Conducting a relationship over messages can lead to confusing and mixed messages. It is hard to know what a person is thinking over text. A long lasting relationship requires you to spend time together. And a relationship should make you feel loved and safe. If you’re always feeling confused and mixed up, this might not be the person for you.
