She said, “When I can’t sleep, I want you to stay up with me.”
“I can’t do that. I have to get some sleep for work.”
It was 3:00 AM and I had to leave for work in a few hours. The girl I’d been seeing for a couple months was an insomniac.
“Well I don’t care, as long I’m your girlfriend then I expect you to stay awake.” She snapped.
That was it for me. I lost it.
“Get out of my bed and get your stuff. I’m taking you home.”
We drove 20 minutes to her house in silence. I dropped her off and the only thing I said was, “I’m sorry but this isn’t working. I don’t think we should see each other anymore.”
She muttered, “Okay,” and left. I think she was shocked at how abruptly I kicked her out into the cold night and broke off our relationship.
I never spoke to her again.
I’m not proud of the way I handled the situation. I was young, immature, and an asshole.
