Why can’t I be happy?

20 10 2007

So, I am now (apparently) in a relationship. I thought that simply by virtue of being in a relationship I would be happy. But guess what: I’m not. Something is not right, I feel like I am being smothered – I don’t like all the “I miss you”s I get, even though I realise it is a sweet gesture. I feel like I am expected to give up a piece of myself to compete the transaction of the relationship. I feel like I have to sacrifice something, and I don’t like it.

What is wrong with me, why must I always find some reason to be unhappy? Am I just not ready for a relationship, and if this is the case, when will I be ready? I’m in the prime of my life right now, so the way I see it, it’s now or never. Am I doomed to be single for the rest of the life, or worse, in a relationship that I am not happy in? That’s not to say that I am not happy in this relationship, if it is even a relationship,but maybe we are a bit too close, too soon in the relationship, if that makes sense.

I mean, we see each other basically every day, and we are chatting to each other on Mxit the rest of the time. Is that too much pressure on a new relationship? I mean, there is that saying that familiarity breeds contempt, but come on, surely that is a sign that something is wrong? Or maybe I just have a problem with commitment. Maybe I truly am destined to be a bachelor my whole life.

Oh when you comment please enter your real name, I don’t like having to guess who posted which comment. Thanks. Oh yes another thing, there should be a review of Resident Evil: Extinction up on my review blog pretty soon. As in I’m going to go write it now after I post this. Go read it and comment and let me know what you think. OK here’s the link for those who still don’t know where it is … http://betthisisoriginalreviews.wordpress.com

Well i dont know. I think you are still trying to get used to it. But if you are feeling smothered then maybe speak to her about it. Its a dumb thing to break up over, or better i think just dont be so intense about it. Just let her say what she wants and
