People Explain Why Their Last Serious Relationship Fell Apart

Trending

Sometimes, love just ends.

Brace yourselves. Love may not always be forever. It's true. You can love and lose. And lose BIG! And often times though it may not feel like it.... it can be for the best. Love is fragile and sometimes fleeting. So listen up and try to figure when it's most healthy, worth it and able to save.

Redditor u/meowmeowtime89 wanted to know who was willing to discuss the origin of their heartache by asking.... What was the final straw that made you end your last serious relationship?


Knives Out. 

Giphy

While we were arguing over a stupid thing, she took two knives from the kitchen and started to hone them by grinding them at each other. Whatsthematterwithu

The Recipes....

She told me that I was a "cheap fool" because I wanted to cook for her instead of taking her to Texas Roadhouse. I was so excited about a new recipe I wanted to try out. pls_send_sexy_pics

I'd always choose the food offered by someone who cooks out of love rather than for money. lostandrandom

FREESTYLE RAPPING 4 THE WIN! 

Boyfriend when i first met him was sweet and full of potential. Towards the end of our relationship, he became toxic, rude, and lazy. He dropped out of college to focus on being a sound cloud rapper. (God how I cringe at my choices.) Him dropping out put me on the fence, and I eventually discovered he was cheating. The final straw you ask? I confronted him about said cheating, and he started FREESTYLE RAPPING to me about how sorry he was mid argument. And it was TERRIBLE. On the bright side, I lost all feelings I had for him dead on the spot and walked away laughing. bloodybay

 "money is tight right now"... 

I was dying of the flu and asked him to get me some soup. He came back with 1 can of $0.69 soup, venmo requested me for $1 because "money is tight right now", then bought an $80 bottle of scotch 3 days later on Election Day, and the fool didn't vote because he got too drunk. Noturmothershandle

Bye Girl....

Giphy

She tried to manipulate me by threatening to break up, so the next day when i went to pick her up i dropped off all her crap and ended it right then and there. FdlMWEI

He stopped trying......

He stopped trying, I couldn't even remember the last time we went on a real date. All he wanted to do was sit and do nothing. He stopped caring and so did I. questionablemotives3

I chose the dog!!!

Married 9 years, two kids. He cheated on me at least twice. He confessed the first time, which occurred a week after we got married. I forgave him out of fear of being alone and pregnant. Second time, he didn't confess. He just came up with some wacko excuse. We had two kids by then. Then he was on WestPac. I know full well he cheated on me, gut feeling. But I had no proof. After all that, we continued. I finally woke up and realized that I didn't need him anymore. The straw that broke the camel's back was him threatening to kill my dog. I chose the dog over him.

Health Issues... 

I was having a health episode and since it wasn't an emergency, I texted him (I figured he was asleep.) my best friend was up with me all night, taking care of me. When I called him in the morning and asked why he did not call or text me in the morning he said "your health isn't my problem". And I knew it was over and never could fix that. Naynaytacos

Valentine's Peace Out. 

His brother was rude to me at the table, and I said "I'm not sure I agree with that, let's leave it there" to which his brother stormed off. I was then banished from the house until I apologized to the father, and all the brothers for "disrespecting" a man in the house. My boyfriend told me I had to do this. Didn't want to, so he ambushed me on Valentine's Day (4 months later) for a 'special night in' and locked me in a room with his brother until I apologized. I apologized and got the heck out of that room and relationship. numptydumptyPhD

No Sex Please....

Giphy

She started ignoring what I said and only wanting sexual advances from me, if I tried to spark a conversation I was either ignored, spoken over, or cut off. I wasn't okay with that and she got mad when I mentioned it, and went insane when I left her and wouldn't stop texting me. I blocked her number so she used her siblings, the parents, then cousins phones to keep calling and texting me. I have blocked all the numbers so far and she has stopped for now. Also recently found out I wasn't even her main girl so that's great. SweetCakeShy

Time flies when you're having fun - but the opposite is also true.

Every one of us knows what it is to look at a clock and then wonder if it's broken because there's no way that's al the time that's passed. The last few minutes before the school bell rang or before you could clock out; the "doctor needs to speak with you" minutes; those excruciating moments before they got home - you know what I mean.
