Relationships: Is It Alright To Retaliate?
So here's the story. I was dating this girl for about 2 years. What happened through the course of it, i realised the constant negativity she emanated was getting too stressful for me. The constant "need" to be in touch, be on the phone for hours together, talking about nothing other than "mushy-i love you crap" Not that Im not against any of it, but in due moderation suits me better perhaps?:p Over the course of two years, you obviously share and exchange secrets that you would never tell anybody else, and in my opinion.. i think its lowly up to go around sharing it with other people, just because the relationship didnt pan out. I'd broken up with her, and she didnt take to it very well. Its been over a year since we broke up, and i still hear stories from mutual people we know, that she was saying this or that about you. As a guy, i always thought its better to be the 'better man' that another person talking bad of you shows a reflection of them, and that sooner or later people are going to realise that. Problem is, its all saintly sounding in theory, but it doesnt work jack **** in real life. Lol to the point that some of my original friends are moving away from me because of her. While i always clarify the wrong things shes said about me, i never ***** behind her back. She was medically bi-polar, and had to take medication after relationships to deal with it. Its sad really. But this constant back-bitting's really getting to me. She's spreading word that i only used her for sex, that my parents we not in a financially in a good spot and would have a laugh about it. Like i said its all saintly sounding in theory, but just because i stay quiet doesnt mean i have nothing to say against her. I just let by-gones be just that. But just to set her right, should i let the truth about her out? That what a damn retard she actually is?
