Single Life Sucks

Fiancé is gone.pablo-67

Left with an overnight bag to an hotel. I can’t believe it. It is all so incredibly surreal. I never expected him to leave for real.

J. is SO not worth all this. He doesn’t mean anything to me. I realise that now. It was all attention seeking on my part. Nothing more. Fiancé is the one I want to grow old with. What did I do? I ruined everything for a bit of excitement. I am such an idiot.

I call friend E. Luckily she is not judging me. She even comes over with two enormous bars of chocolate and an overnight bag. E. gives me a big hug and then a stern look. ‘Did you end things with J. For good?’

I give an affirmative nod.

‘Good. Now, give your sweet fiancé a call to tell him how much you miss him. And afterwards join me on the couch, before I eat all the chocolate.’
