We went on a few dates, and I liked Joe a lot. It was the summer so I had trips planned with my girlfriends, which he got really upset about. In my head I was thinking I’ve only been seeing this guy for a few weeks, what’s his damage?
I went to the beach for a week, and he was blowing up my phone the entire time. I was so annoyed I would just turn my phone off. When I wouldn’t respond he would message me on Facebook. Crazy, right?
When I got back, Joe asked me to be his girlfriend. I said yes but was worried about how he had acted while I was out of town. I had to leave for another week to go to cheerleading camp with my squad, and he got mad that I wasn’t going to be around again. I didn’t understand why he was so upset that I had my own life.
Joe came over the night I got back from camp and insisted on seeing me basically every day for the rest of the summer because he was leaving for college soon. I’m someone who needs space on the reg, so this was not cool with me. I told him I had plans with my friends and family too, but we could hang out other than that. He wasn’t happy.
I went to dinner with my brother and while we were eating, I got like six calls and a ton of texts from Joe accusing me of cheating on him and freaking out that I wasn’t responding. I was furious and texted him back that I was with my brother and I’d call him later.
And I did. To break up with him. I told Joe that his behavior was absolutely ridiculous and that I couldn’t be with someone that overbearing and jealous. Homeboy needed to get a grip and maybe see a therapist about that jealousy.
He sent me a Facebook message a few days later telling me that my stubbornness got the best of me and if we never saw each other that there was no point to us dating. And I was all “Dude, I already broke up with you.”
