Ice cold break-up

By Ice cold - 22/11/2012 05:35 - Australia - Cheltenham

Today, my girlfriend decided to break the news that she wanted us to be "just friends." However, she did it not in just any old way - while ice-skating. I'm currently in hospital getting stitches in my arm after I tripped in shock and she ran me over. FML

That was cruel of her. Is she the Ice Queen by any chance?

So, the Friend Zone looks a lot like the Penalty Box.

#12 - whereabouts did it happen? I'm also from Victoria, Aus.

She's as cold as ice, willing to sacrifice their love.

She'll never take advice, someday she'll pay the price: I know.

#13 Icehouse in the Docklands, I think

I've seen it before, it happens all the time...

....time to cancel my ice skating plans for today!

What a bitch. You deserve better OP. get better soon :)

I love how whenever somebody tells a one-sided breakup story on here someone calls the gf/bf a bitch/asshole and says they deserve better. How do you know OP isn't a total dickwad who deserved it?

#27- They just go off of what the OP tells us, I suppose.

OP may have deserved the breakup, but it's hard to imagine anyone deserving to have their arm sliced open by an ice skate (or any other implement, for that matter).

I'm pretty sure they have universal health care in Australia.

I believe Australia has a public healthcare system, meaning hospital bills equate to $0.

There should never be any such thing as "hospital bills." What a disgusting way to have to live. (I'm Canadian. This poster is obviously American. Poor sap.)

Hospital bills don't even exist in communist countries. Yet America which is supposed to be the best will charge you $20,000 to put a finger back on and if you don't have the money that sucks because you'll just loose it. They really don't treat their people that well.

yea I hate when I take a girl on a romantic date and then don't have the common decency to at least wait for the date to end to break bad news, I feel your pain brah, real talk.

And where do you read that the OP took her on a date*? Maybe she initiated the ice-skating, who knows. Also, I don't see why you have to wait with bad news. Waiting doesn't make it any better, an unwanted break-up will always be painful. Maybe OP's girlfriend thought that was the best time, doesn't make her a cruel bitch imo. *sidenote, do you take someone on a date when (s)he is already your partner?

Of course partners date! Why stop putting in the effort just because you have what you want?

Euhm, you misunderstood me, it was just a vocabulary question. We Belgians often use 'date' only for the... dates you have when you're not yet together with that person. When you are, we use different words, like 'een afspraakje'. I just thought Native Englishspeakers did the same thing and I was curious which words would replace 'date'.

17 - Bij ons in Nederland heet het ook nog gewoon daten als je al een relatie hebt :).

It was a cultural misunderstanding, FML community, give DjeePee a break!

I agree. It's good to ask questions. I'd be more annoyed with someone trying to be stupid than asking something to learn.

I just don't get why she ran over you. You could call her a 'dump truck' if you will.

I'm just taking a wild guess that she didn't mean to. But hey, maybe inflicting injuries is a new form of solidifying the break up. You just never know nowadays.

Inflicting injuries ... hmmm ... Well, there was Chris Brown and Rhianna ... Touché I know.

Ouch op, and now you will have a nice scare to remember her for. Sorry op.

This must have been at Ice House in Melbourne, its the only ice skating joint I know of. You should have thrown her in front of the City Circle tram meanwhile chowing on some Nandos and getting some of that good old Peri Peri in ya wound. That would have shown her.

#14, It could have been the Ice Walkabout in Gold Coast. You could have given her a Vegemite sandwich, driven her out to the outback in a fried-out combie, chundered, let a dingo eat her baby and ditch her to let her deal with the pommie bastards, abbos and creamies. No worries, mate, g'day!

Man, good thing I don't live in AU. Dafuq does all that even mean?

If you lived in Australia you'd know what that stuff means.
