Well its simple our communication just sucks and I couldn't handle it anymore so I broke up with him. I know that we love each other and we have a great time with each other. But when you have had more than one arguments over a communication problem its really time to call it quits.
I basically had breakfast with him and he and I decided that he would just go do his laundry at his home and I would stay at my home and wash my car and wash my neighbors (girlfriend's) car and her husband's truck (military duty) As he was leaving he looked at me as he has before and said, "I will see ya later." I then say okay, and thinking in the back of my mind as he drives away... I hope "later" means tonight. So I
worked hard all day and "later" finally arrives in my
mind and he contacts me and
Im happy he has but I haven't ate and he has...well there goes the eating out with him. I just thought okay, I guess I'm not seeing him tonight. And then you think... What does see ya later mean? So I try and forget about it but I'm out eating alone and I think to myself, I will just go and see him...and I did but he's not home and it's 9:00pm and your still thinking WOW I'll see ya later just means next weekend. UGH!
I just wish after dating a year that he could have gotten what "I'll see you later" means to me. I would have liked for it to have worked out but life is to short reading someone else's mind. And let me add, he and I went through this once before. I know he feels he didn't do anything wrong and I didn't either. I just wasn't happy with the outcome and I just found myself frustrated and knew in my heart that this man isn't changing.
Its really sad that two people have a great time with each other but can't do the simple things like communicate.

It is common... I have had the same problem recently, I find that it goes both ways. You could have said OK I will see you tonight, or O.K, I'll be ready at 7 or something to that effect.
I am having trouble with the same thing myself and can see I am to blame some ogf the time. I have found it hard to talk to my Girlfriend at times. especially when she is not being receptive to my feelings, the current situation of just isn't listening... it makes communication harder. Makes me feel like she doesn't care, not interested or just wants things her way. That makes it difficult to open up later.0
