So, the boy and I had a discussion of sorts last night about why things aren’t working lately. We have (kinda) sorted things out, but in the public interest, I’ve decided to let you all know some really dumb things that you just shouldn’t say (which I always thought were kinda self evidently stupid, but apparently not)
Me: “You don’t listen to me"
Him: “You need to learn to deal with your problems differently instead of complaining to me about them”
(Because I’m no longer allowed to vent if I have a bad day. This was followed with “Find someone else to talk to”. Yeah, I could probably complain a little less. However, things have been super stressful right now, and I have no one else to talk to about it. Gah!)
Me: You don’t appear to even care about me. I don’t think there’s even anything you like about me
Him: There’s plenty of things I like about you. You can cook, you can clean, you have a job…
(Oh yeah. He said that. In all seriousness. And didn’t even add anything else.)
Me: When was the last time we spent time together?
Both of us:… *silence*
5 minutes later…
Him: Oh, and I’ll be having dinner with the boys tomorrow night.
So after we both worked out a major issue is we don’t talk or spend time together anymore, he tells me he’s not even going to bother being home the next night. Right.
He’s not usually a total asshole. But my goodness, he did not do well last night. He did not do well at all!
