It's Not You, It's Me - A Short Story About Break Up

Why don’t you love me anymore? I’m such a kind person! I don’t deserve any of this happening to me!

I can see tears running down your pretty face. What used to make my heart ache no longer does. I don’t believe it anymore, but I won’t tell you that. You wouldn’t believe me anyway. It’s a waste of breath, it will just make you hate me more and start a new argument.

The truth is, you are not kind. You are only nice when it suits you. You’re nice to get what you want. It’s taken me a long time to realise that I’ve been deceived. You wanted me, because I did everything you wanted me to do. I wanted to make you happy and for you to become my girlfriend. In fact, seeing you happy used to make me happy too. What you demanded from me was in line with what I was willing to do.

However, it is no longer the case. The more I gave you, the more you expected from me, to the point where making you happy is no longer making me happy. So here’s the real reason why I don’t love you anymore: „I love myself more!“

Your last point, yes, I can agree with it. Nobody deserves bad things happening to them, it’s just bad luck, and maybe poor judgement on both parts too. You didn’t think that my paying for all our dates was just an act of courtship to get the girl, and it would cease the moment I had you. I didn’t think your kindness was contingent on my willingness to the things you want from me.

I won’t see this relationship as a mistake, but a lesson learned. Never pay for all the dates to get the girl unless I’m willing to continue with the paying when we’re in a relationship. I guess I’m not as kind of a person as you and I’ve thought either, only being nice when it suits me.

And now I’m going to be nice to you, because it suits me. I want to end things on a good note, without hate or drama. So I say:

I’m sorry. You don’t deserve any of this. You are a good girl. I know I’m stupid and mean, but I just realised that I’m not ready yet to commit and settle down. It wouldn’t be fair to you to be with someone who longs to have a single’s life. I’m sorry I didn’t realise it sooner, but I’m very sure you will find someone better. I have no doubt about this.
