You know those nice cheery diaries where I smugly say everything is right with my life?

This isn't one of them.

Update [2015-12-30 13:27:51 by anonimouse]: finished off from where my tablet died in the bath... :). With fun poll.

Just prior to Christmas my oldest living relative passed away so we had her funeral on the 23rd. She'd got the Telegram from the Queen earlier in the year, so she did have a long life and even the local MP turned up for the funeral as he was a family acquaintance.

Also just before Christmas Curvygirl had been going through one of those weeks where she acted quite distant to me, and on the 22nd announced she wanted to break up from me, mainly as a result of peer pressure. I thought I resolved that one but on the 23rd I got accused of reading her email.

Whilst I may be guilty of many things I wasn't guilty of that because a large amount of self interest results in mutual respect of privacy. Well there is that and the fact I was at a funeral and if I had done it I would have done the job more professionally.

Anyway my time apart from her over Christmas was cool (not in the good sense); text messages and phone calls went frequently unanswered. On Boxing Day I went to see Disney on Ice at the O2 with Mrs Mouse and Miss MiniMouse, and almost decided to use my apartment as a stopover. It's a good job I didn't as CurvyGirl was staying over the break instead of going home as I believed.

I came back on the Sunday night, completely forgetting that Monday was a Bank Holiday, and CurvyGirl told me that she was back to Plan A. I accepted this and said she could stay till 14th as we'd originally discussed just before Christmas. There then followed one of the weirdest discussions I've had where she asked if she could stay (as a paying tenant), to which I said "No, because I like my space, will need to get over this, and I don't think a new girlfriend will appreciate me living with the previous one." She then raised other ideas such as finding a new girlfriend for me who'd be comfortable with this arrangement, and variations on this theme. I'm still not 100% sure if she was serious or doing this for the lulz. Some of the suggestions were tempting, and would have ticked more than a few boxes on my sexual bucket list, but I think my life is complex enough.

Anyway later the next night, she comes into my room and apologises asking if we can forget about the last two weeks. I won't go into the exact way she apologises but lets just say I'm a little weary after the activities of the last 24 hours.

I have got through a lot of Nurofen and Paracetamol over the last week. I don't mean I've been eating them like sweets, but I've had to take 2 or 4 every day to get rid of a headache. I believe its due to an inherited susceptibility to migraines, but I don't think the events have helped.

Last night we went to go see Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I get the impression she's not a convert to epic Sci Fi, but I think she liked the movie a little more than she expected. Personally I really enjoyed the movie, and privately thanked God it was nothing like Episodes 1-3, but I think it played a little too safe in being too similar to A New Hope.

At the moment, I'm hopefully accepting her change of heart, but not without some nervousness about the future.

Did she at least pay off the macbook? by marvin (4.00 / 2) #1 Wed Dec 30, 2015 at 12:42:41 AM EST
You must be gutted to have lost such a paragon of stability and maturity.

I've given it to her as an Christmas present. by anonimouse (4.00 / 1) #3 Wed Dec 30, 2015 at 08:41:33 AM EST
I don't really believe in owing each other money in or out of a relationship, unless it's unavoidable. If a relationship is over, its best to not have anything which could make life awkward afterwards, and if it isn't then it's best to limit the subjects you could be arguing or having issues over

Peer pressure?? by ammoniacal (4.00 / 1) #4 Thu Dec 31, 2015 at 12:47:03 AM EST
That's the most reliable indicator that you were dating a child.

She does have some justification by anonimouse (2.00 / 0) #5 Sun Jan 03, 2016 at 09:50:15 AM EST
 She told her closest friend everything and her friend flipped out to  the point where she had to cut her out of her life, so she's afraid of v being burned again.

Uhm hmmm by yankeehack (4.00 / 1) #6 Sun Jan 03, 2016 at 05:45:56 PM EST
So, basically, Curvygirl has figured out she can use you for stuff.

C'mon, she's gonna need an expensive gift soon, you know, to keep her interest up.

That's a win - win situation here if they're both getting what they want
