*A wild Mutay appears*
You kind of have to watch my newest vlog, to understand why I’m writing about this after all this time.
For regular readers of my blog, you may already know this story but for those that don’t know – I’ll start from the beginning.
When I first started university, I got my first serious boyfriend. When I say serious, I mean I actually brought him home to meet my parents. Now for some people that may not be a big deal, but for me it is because my parents are pretty strict. Anyway, my mum was pretty cool with it and my dad – well, he’s just overprotective is all I’m going to say but he didn’t do anything, so.
Anyway, we dated for almost a year and that I got news that I got onto a study trip to go to China. (Side story: I went to China for nearly 5 months with a bunch of other people from my university. It bloody amazing!) We decided that we should move in together for the next year of uni because you know, at the time it was pretty serious and so, when I came back from China I’d have somewhere to stay as well.
Unfortunately, what I didn’t expect was for him to dump me the day before I flew off to China. I was pretty devastated at the time because seriously, who likes getting dumped? For the first couple of weeks in China, I held up but I was secretly hurting like a motherb*tch inside. He kept emailing me during this time, so that made matters worse. Sure, I get that he wanted to be friends but it was too soon – and I don’t think you can immediately become friends with your ex like nothing happened between the two of you. After about a month, I got an email from Mutay saying that he got a new girlfriend. It was the first time I had cried in a month, and it was in front of my roommate so I was very embarrassed. Still, it was nice to have somewhere there to comfort me and during this state of distress I may have sent a very angry email.
I get that he doesn’t have to tell me jacksh*t because we weren’t going out anymore, but where the hell is the respect?
He kept coming off as patronising in his emails, as well, so I used to never reply to them or reply really late. Also, he kept questioning me about my religion like it was any of his business. Then all of a sudden he turns around and proclaims he is now Catholic. He had always believed in God and Jesus but he’d always said that he didn’t like the teachings of the Catholic, and how it was all stuffy and boring, etc. I just left him to his own business, because really it’s not mine.
After an exchange of angry emails, he decided to call me out on the fact that I was too immature in the relationship and that I was always on my phone, etc. That is /not/ true. I’m sorry that me watching TV shows all the time and liking f*cking Lego wasn’t mature enough for you. I had the impression that you’d accepted that part of me from the beginning. Everyone that knows me, KNOWS that I am the biggest TV fanatic – it doesn’t matter what it is; kids TV, crime dramas, drama, etc. I will watch it.
Anyway, we haven’t spoke that much since we split up and apparently he’s already been with 3 girls since me. He also keeps talking to Mutay. The only problem I have with this is the fact that they were never really friends when we were dating in the first place. Mutay is thoroughly confused as to why he keeps bugging her as well – he kept asking her to meet up for coffee or go iceskating, etc. I’m not saying he liked her like that, but you do not move to your ex’s best friend like that. It’s weird.
When Mutay commented that he got a new girlfriend, he actually texted back “No point in wasting time. What’s it to you, anyway?” Mutay didn’t mean anything by it, it was just an offhand comment. What time are you wasting? You’re 22 – it’s not like you’re getting old. Jeeze.
So, yeah – that’s the more coherent version. I may have been slightly tipsy toward the end of that vlog – I had a Tiki Tai from Hard Rock Café and it was freaking massive. Yet, tasty. Mmmm.
Ask me some questions, so I can answer them in my next vlog!
