FML - The follow-up

Today, I finished polishing a song I was working on for my girlfriend. The next words out of her mouth when we next spoke: "I want to break up." FML

HobblinGoblin Say more :
to clarify, she never heard the song. I practiced maybe a half hour a day for about a week, usually at night after she'd gone home.

Been there, slightly rewrote that song for the next girlfriend, married that girlfriend 27 years ago, still play her that song on occasion, still know the lyrics by heart. It's not the song - it's the girl.

I didn't devote that much time to it. I planned it across maybe a week and practiced on nights we either weren't going to see each other or after she'd go home. /okayillstopwhining

Why is it that if something doesn't go the OP's way (in any relationship on FML) apparently they can 'do better'? How do you know? Maybe the other person is magnificent. Or maybe, they just didn't LIKE OP anymore and wanted to break up. Breaking up with someone doesn't make you worth less than someone else. Automatically saying 'you can do better' is just a dumb assumption

Rebecca, I am with you. I'm not saying I was mistreated, it's just a bummer that it happened? I actually am still friends with her. And no, I'm not related to Gandhi? I am confused.

It's not exactly degrading anyone's worth when someone tells someone else they deserve better. It's more of saying that they deserve to find someone who will treat them better or they can do better for themselves.
