Horrible. Ladies, what would you do in this situation?
This was our first V-Day together. I wasn’t expecting a proposal, but I was expecting a nice evening out. I never had a SO celebrate V-Day before, and when I told him this, he joked that he was “old fashioned like that” and usually got flowers, chocolates, etc — over a month ago, he told me he made reservations at a really nice restaurant in town. I was so excited. We had plans to see a comedy show after, too.
Ladies, I’ve been looking forward to this day for WEEKS.
Well, yesterday rolls around and we head over to a friends house in the middle of the day for a few drinks — it ended up that the show was postponed to a later date (due to weather) — so SO asked me if we could move our reservations to later in the evening given that we weren’t going to the show. So I called the place and had our reservations changed to later.
SO got drunk and passed out — and we ended up missing dinner. He left me alone with his friends at his friend’s apartment.
At around 11pm, he still wasn’t awake, so I made sure he was OK then I drove his car back home because there was a parking ban and he would have got towed.
I cried and cried and cried so hard. It surprised me, because I thought I was just angry — but I was really upset.
The thing is – I wouldn’t have cared had he not built it up — then he just let me down. I’m thinking back now, and SO didn’t have any plans for my birthday…. and got me a last minute gift on Christmas Eve (I was even there when he got it and he wrapped it in front of me!)
…. ladies, my mother is THOROUGHLY unimpressed with him at this point, and I’m starting to lose patience, too. When he got home last night, I told him I deserved so much better. What’s worse is there was nothing else. I went out and bought myself chocolates today, which is super depressing. He told me last night “I was going to get you a card.. to tell you how much I love you, but you know I’m just not good at that stuff.”
He just ordered pizza hut and is eating it in bed. He doesn’t seem to care that I’ve been so upset all day.
What would you do????
