Oblivious Misunderstanding: Her-Him 1



Contrary to what he might tell you, it didn’t take too long for me to fall in love with him. His smile, his adorable ways of making me laugh, the cringe he makes when he concentrates were all that took to make me fall so deeply for him. It was great, the two years we were together. We didn’t have much, but we always managed to find fun in everything we did, and all that mattered was that we were next to each other. We could spend the whole day at home, in our pajamas, cooking, baking, and watching our favorite movies over and over again. It wasn’t until he got that job that everything started to fall apart. It just wasn’t the same any more. He started getting so busy that penciling in a simple dinner together was becoming difficult to do. I know he still loves me, and that I should be more patient as he’s only just getting used to his new job. The only problem is that I don’t feel like a priority anymore. I feel like an option that can be postponed until all his important, more urgent needs are taken care of. What he doesn’t know is that, I’m slowly getting used to his absence. Being in a relationship shouldn’t feel this lonely… Yeah, I really can’t do this anymore.


It’s been six months since I got hired at the company I longed for the longest time. The workload is immense, but slowly achieving my dream is exciting beyond words. And really, having such a supportive, lovely girlfriend does help a lot. I know we haven’t been able to spend much time together lately, but she knows I’m working hard for our future. Did you know that I had to chase her for two years to finally get her to notice me? Man, I knew I had to get her the first time we met eyes. She was so beautiful, and she still is. I really hope she knows how much I appreciate her understanding. You know what? I’ll plan a getaway trip for us next weekend. It’ll be great! I can’t wait to tell her about this. She’s going to love this! Wait, my girlfriend’s calling.
