He decided to push his flight home back and spend an additional couple of weeks with his girlfriend so he could be there to support her through her grief.
Eventually, he had no choice but to return home, so he did, but he did not follow through with the breakup before leaving.
“I’ve been as supportive as possible over the phone since I’ve gotten back home,” he said. “And my will to break things off has faded significantly.”
“I can’t really see myself doing it at all now. She really relies on me for support, as she only really has me and her sister, and her sister is a resident physician working 80+ hrs a week. So most of the support falls to me.”
“None of my reasons for why we aren’t right for each other or why I won’t be happy with her have changed. If anything, they’ve become more obvious as I’ve gotten some space from her. But I don’t want her to have to lose me now after having lost her parents.”
He’s really not sure how to move forward with dumping his girlfriend, as it does need to happen, but he feels sympathetic to her situation.
When do you think he should dump his girlfriend; should he just rip the bandaid off and do it now, or should he wait?
