Today, my girlfriend found a letter I'd written to myself for moral support while we were broken up, in which I explained why we would never work out. Apparently I made a convincing argument. FML

Why would you keep that ?

YDI for having it somewhere she could find it even though you are back together. A place in your life like that should be put behind you unless you hadn't moved on from that part of you that didn't want to be with her. If you did want to be with her and were attached to the letter still, you should have known to get rid of it lest this happen.

Hide your things better :)

Or become a lawyer?

Or throw the damn thing away

Except maybe he needs to be reminded again so he should probably keep it.

Why would you keep that ?

That's exactly what I was thinking... What would be the point of keeping that if you got back together?

Just in case they broke up again I'm assuming.

#42, couldn't he just make another one? I know if that was me I'd have gotten rid of it.

Maybe he just put it somewhere and forgot about it? Bottom of a pile of papers or something

I have a feeling that "letter to myself" is code for "diary".

^yea, and fears such as these are what made me tear out the pages of my diary and permanently shelve it.

You should have thrown it out :P

And, That's How I Met Your Mother

i don't get it. is it the one with place being put somewhere?

Still, the girlfriend could realize that he wrote it to help himself in a time of need and that he very much probably doesn't mean what he said. But of course, like you said, he could still be attached to the letter. I'd like to think that maybe he just forgot or misplaced the letter and so couldn't get rid of it once he changed his mind though.

You should have written a letter about the importance of blowjobs and steak.

At least you're a good writer. Capitalize on it! With your girlfriend, though, explain that you were full of emotions and such- try to work it out!

You don't know that. maybe she broke up with him for his bad writing!

Neither of your comments make much sense, her breaking up with him had nothing to do with either his penmanship or the content of his writing, it was probably the fact that he had a paper stating why their relationship wouldn't have worked out in the first place

And maybe, just maybe they're not being 100% serious.

Well atleast you still have the letter to make you feel better.

And can I just say, 'a wrote'? Proofread anyone?

That's not the only grammatical error, but it's definitely the most glaring.

And you kept it because...?

I'm more curious to why he went back to her if he knew they wouldn't work out.

Some people try to justify to themselves why it's a good thing they're not in a relationship with their ex. But on the sperm of the moment, getting back together can be great (makeup sex, etc).

I'm wondering if 'sperm of the moment' was intended as a pun or was just a typo. Either way, it's funny.

Yes, 29. My thoughts exactly. Op convinced himself it wouldn't work out but tried again anyway?

sperm of the moment was an intentional but not original pun

I wonder if its grammar was as terrible as is in this FML.

You mean spelling right? It's a typo.

You gotta remove evidence man! Or follow your own opinion through and don't get back with her.

Correct me if I'm wrong, PenguinBitch, but doesn't saying "get BACK with her" mean the same as "get with her AGAIN"? Or am I just missing something?

Pretty sure he means because they'd already broken up and got back together. So they would be getting back together /again/ after this breakup.
