looks like it was a good thing you dumped her if she's that senssitive
Damn cut the boy some slack... you learn through mistakes. Although I'm sure the choice of venue for the break-up isn't the reason she stabbed him. The lesson to take here is if you feel you might get stabbed, head somewhere public that you don't mind never visiting again. If she's seemingly stable, always opt for privacy (and cross your fingers)
Wait why would you get banned if she stabbed you if they were actually watching the camera footage then they wouldve seen that that's not how it went down! Yah I agree if she's gonna be that way then it's good you broke up with her now how long were you going out with her?? I never cry over someone unless it's for a year or longer anything less than that I'm not sure if it's long enough
I disagree, #110. If OP had dumped the psycho via text, she could've gone crazy and sought out some revenge. Hopefully she got everything out of her system and can now move on. I think a public place wasn't a bad choice at all. You still get to talk face to face but it takes away the intimacy. Just make sure you have separate rides home.
*sigh* Why do so many people think it's a good idea to break up in a mall? How can you ever get a good talk face to face about a serious subject if there is no intimacy? It's on the same level as breaking-up through a phone call. I would be so pissed off if my boyfriend broke up with me on a public spot. Maybe it's because I think OP's girlfriend isn't such a psycho as you think she is. My guess is that she's very, very sensitive and emotional unstable, but not that much to call her a psycho. I mean, OP didn't even expect this reaction, he thought it was a good idea. Maybe, just maybe his girlfriend reacted like this because she didn't like the way they broke up.
94, as ridiculous as 28's claim that she might have killed him was, it is very easy to kill someone with a biro. I can think of quite a few ways right now, and a few more that would devastatingly maim but not kill. Secondly, 28 was not claiming she'd kill him with a biro per se, however if that is how she acts in public could you imagine how she would with no witnesses. Correct me if I'm wrong 28, but that's what I took from it.
@#125 I have the sneaking suspicion that the OP did expect some kind of bad reaction and that is why they chose a public place. People choose a public place because they are hoping that the sheer volume of people that can see them will keep the other person from going ballistic. I would say what shocked the OP here was probably the fact that the reaction was this bad in a public situation. I have to agree with the many other commentators who have said it, if her reaction was this bad in a public area imagine what she might have done with no witnesses.
Because, even if she was caught doing it, nothing would happen to her. Basically what im trying to say is that if a cop saw, he'd kick the OP out of the mall because of 'Disturbing the Peace.' The cops in this country are extremely sexist towards guys because they assume that women are too weak to attack a man.
I guess it depends how you let her know. Were you direct about it, or gave hints?
Dumping her seems like the best thing you could've done, judging by the way she reacted.
I don't understand how dumping someone at the mall would be your best idea?
That's what I was thinking too... Breaking up with someone over text isn't cool either, just sayin'. It happened to me. And the person that did it to me dated me for over a year... It's one of the most horrible ways to break up with someone. But in this situation with phsyco, I wouldn't blame him if he broke up with her over text, haha.
It was probably a good idea because he thought she would have caused a big scene if it was any other place and embarassed herself (which she already did here), and he didn't expect her to go off like a rocket.
I love your explanation, but I doubt OP's girlfriend would have killed him. For Christ's sake, she poked him with a pen, she didn't even dare to use her bare hands for a good old slap-in-the-face. What would you prefer: being dumped in the mall, where you cannot talk properly and have absolutely no pivacy, or being dumped at home. I know what to choose. I don't think the reaction of the girlfriend was appropriate or mature, but neither was the decision of OP to dump her in a public place. That was actually a very jerkish thing to do.
I've had a conversation with a guy that he didn't like in a public place and he still tried shit... if we had been alone he would have raped, killed or put me in a hospital because he was unstable. as it was the cops had to show up and put his bitchass in jail until his mommy or daddy bailed him out.
Given enough force a ballpoint pen can actually do a hell of a lot of damage. They are pointed enough that they can be driven in to the flesh pretty damn deep. That having been said if she had been dumped at home she probably would have had access to things a hell of a lot sharper than a ballpoint pen.
