Things are changing
This afternoon I had another strange conversation with my partner. These things happen quite often lately. I started to wonder if there is something wrong and if I should be worrying about it. I don’t really understand what’s happening right now. Some days everything seems to be working perfectly fine, whereas other days I have no idea what’s going on. I feel lost. I am afraid we are loosing the connection, or whatever is bonding us.
From day one we both agreed to be completely honest with each other even that could have hurt the other. We decided to keep our friendship even if we would not be together, in case that would ever happen. We considered ourselves mature enough to say things bluntly, speak the truth, shake hands in end and go separate ways.
Both of us had our fair share of drama in our lives and we were tired of fighting. We wanted to enjoyed each other’s company and feel loved, cared, nurtured. I think that during one of the first times we went out, at the beginning of our relationship, we had a serious conversation about our intentions and wants.
We came clean and spoke our minds freely, drawing a sort of plan for our future together. We had no intention of marrying. We both agreed that marriage was that a piece of paper. Its only power was to make things more complicated or messier in case of separation. Maybe because we saw our parents’ marriage crumble and we learnt what it meant to live and grow up in a broken home. Throughout our lives we tried to avoid committing the same mistakes as our parents. We wished to be different, but in a good away.
Today, while I was out shopping for awindow awnings Longueuil, I got a call from my real estate agent who seemed to be a bit in distress. When I asked what had happened, he mentioned that my partner told him that we changed our mind about selling the condo. The agent was supposed to pass by with some potential buyers but when he did, my partner refused to open the door for him. Thus he had to cancel the showing and apologize to his clients for wasting their time. No doubt, that this incident made him look unprofessional.
I was convinced the agent got the wrong condo; my Joan would never do such a thing. Well, he did.
