Broke up with my girlfriend. She did not handle it well.


Strongly seconded.


You say it wasn’t a manipulative thing, but it is. Whether it’s consciously manipulative or not, I couldn’t say, but somewhere in her head is a little voice that’s telling her if she’s making statements that are extreme enough, you just might come back to “Save” her.

I have to agree with Sierra Indigo. I had an ex who used the same tactic on me.

For your own good, stay away from her.
