I Want Her Back
A month after I ended things with my girlfriend I realized: I want her back. The worst thing I ever did was let her go. I broke up with Cassie in the heat of the moment, we were having a fight, I can’t even remember what started it. As soon as the words came out of my mouth I regretted them.
I sat at home for the next month feeling terrible but not knowing what to do. That was when it dawned on me that I want her back. The times I spent with Cassie were the happiest of my life. We had dated for a year but only lived together for three months. Everything between us was great until we shared the same roof.
It wasn’t until after I broke up with Cassie and I realized that I want her back, I also came to the realization that I had been a jerk to her. We pretty much started fighting a couple of weeks after she moved in. She said that I didn’t pull my weight around the house and never got off the couch. My arguments was that I was tired from working. After we broke up I realized that she was tired too, but making an effort so we could have a nice home together.
I called Cassie and confessed how I felt. I told her that I want her back. She that that she loved me but that she thought we were not compatible enough to last long term as a couple. It seemed trivial, but she hated picking up my dirty clothes, cleaning up after me, she said she felt like she was my mom. The worst thing was that I never once thanked her. I said I was sorry, but I didn’t know if it would be enough.
All night I pondered my relationship with Cassie. No matter how I approached it, the only answer I could find was that I want her back. She was everything to me. Cassie made me laugh all the time. She was kind and also beautiful. I found some ebooks about making relationships work. They all cost between $15 to $50. They really helped me see what I had to do to make things work.
I knew that there would be a lot of work ahead of us and that I was going to have to swallow my pride, but still I thought to myself: I want her back no matter what. I started that day making an effort to do some work around the house, even though Cassie was not there to see it.
I rang Cassie the next day and told her I was prepared to change my attitude towards her and the dynamics of our relationship. I asked her to move back in and also suggested we see a counselor. I said the only thought that had been running through my mind was, I want her back. She agreed to move back in for another three months and see how things went.
That was six months ago, and so far things are great. The things I did to show Cassie I want her back have been working. It has been hard work but I have learnt a lot about the compromise and hard work you have to put into a relationship to make it work.
