I'm 24, so is she, to preface. My 2nd ltr, her 4th or 5th. So I've been with this girl about 10 months, and have been living with her for the past 5. I realize now that we moved in too soon, but please bear with me. For a variety of reasons, I would find myself upset at her. I now think that the majority of the time, I was sublimating my mommy-daddy bullshit into our relationship. My mother and father got divorced when I was 4, but I was aware of their constant fighting to the point that I think I have modeled my relationships with women on that. Late June, my girlfriend almost broke up with me, saying she felt like she was solely responsible for my happiness. I talked things out with her, and made efforts to pursue my own goals in school and my own time with friends. My girlfriend left me on thursday the 12th. She says that she's sick of fighting all the time, sick of walking on eggshells around me (moreso sick of feeling like that's the only time we're happy). I find it incredibly hard to believe her, considering the past 3 weeks have felt like a dream, we've constantly been doing lovey dovey stuff, and she'd told me herself that she felt like our communication skills had really improved. Things that would have caused tiffs that turned into blowouts, were glazed over and loviness prevailed. We'd talked about our future in the past, and forever We've yet to sit down face to face. Do you all think that illustrating my desire and efforts to change will have any impact, or should I just give up and move on?
