Don't Start Something You Can't Finish

Posted on Mon, Mar 28, 2011 at 2:12 PM

I hope your girlfriend knows she's going to be left behind when you leave this town. You're here for a few more years, but when you're done your studies you'll fly back home, and she'll be heartbroken.

Did you tell her about how it's a sin in your religion? Did you tell her that you're parents would blame her for leading you astray? How about that marriage with a foreigner is only recognized in your country after you turn 35? You pursued her when you knew all this—that she could never meet your family, that she couldn't even be known to them! She's your little Canadian secret. She loves you, damn it! And this is how you repay that love? If you really loved her you'd grow a pair and either leave her now so she could move on to someone she can have a future with, or actually DO SOMETHING so that you CAN have a future together. Don't give her false hope, if there is nothing to hope for. I don't care if you love her or not. She loves you, and you're being selfish. —Friend of the Delinquent Heart
