Greetings to all the party peoples in the house. 'Kay, with that out of the way, onto the thread at large. My girlfriend of two and a half years started acting really strange toward me about two weeks ago. Since then, the relationship got more and more tense, until at last she said something to the effect of "I feel like you don't care about me, you don't pay attention." Granted, at times I have the attention span of a retarded fruit fly, so I did my best. I've cut my daily sugar intake by half, I'm working on finding a doctor so I can find out if I have adult ADD, etc. etc. Cut to last night. I call her, we talk for about 12 seconds and her phone dies. So I get on World of Warcraft to chat with her, since that's our only reliable mode of communication any more. This is where the request for femmespeak translation comes in to play. To sum up, she said: "I want to be alone. The back of my mind has known this for about a year, I've only really known for about a month. If I knew why, I'd do something about it. I want to live alone and I want to die alone. I'm not going to consider giving us another chance right now. I don't want to hurt you, and I'm afraid you'll hurt me." As for that last part, I've never laid a finger on her. From the few times she's been able to open up to me, she's told me that I hurt her when it feels like I ignore her. At the same time, every time I try to get in touch with her, she tells me it feels like I'm being clingy. And the only time I feel hurt is when she won't be forthcoming with me. Anyway, people who know what any/all of this means: I'm 20 years old. This is my first relationship. I have no experience in decoding femmespeak. Please, please, PLEASE help me out here. I've been sick for the past few days worrying about what would happen, and last night it did.
