Understandably, he was crushed. While he didn’t have any doubt about wanting to be with his girlfriend forever, she rejected his marriage proposal for a second time.
“I asked her why, and she told me the same thing as last year,” he explained. “I asked her if someone was holding her back, maybe family or friends, and she just said, ‘I just want to make sure that this will work.’ This hurt me more than the two rejections.”
“I told her if after four years she isn’t sure, then what the heck will make her sure? She asked me to give her time, and I told her no.”
“I told her that I was not going to keep wasting my time and love if she was going to keep saying no. I told her that I couldn’t do this anymore. She began begging me not to leave and said, ‘Fine, I’ll marry you; just please don’t go.’ That made me mad, but I didn’t say anything. I left.”
Since the failed second proposal, his girlfriend’s parents, mutual friends, and his girlfriend have all been calling and texting him to say that he’s a jerk for breaking up with his girlfriend. They even called him “a big baby” for reacting the way he did after his girlfriend rejected his marriage proposal.
Also, they claimed that he was too harsh because she was just asking for more time before getting engaged. The rest of his and his girlfriend’s mutual friend group aren’t taking anyone’s side in the situation.
Do you think he was right for breaking up with his girlfriend after she rejected his second marriage proposal?
