I Broke Up For What She Did To Me, But Revenge Was Never On My Mind

Anonymous Anonymous in Your Story on 21 October, 2017

We were in the 2nd year of college when a girl shifted to my friend’s PG room. My friend told me that she had recently broken up with her boyfriend. This bothered me because whenever I called my friend, I could hear her sobbing.

When I saw her for the first time in college after her breakup, my heart melted. All the pain and all the memories of my own breakup flashed through my mind and heart. I realized immediately that I had to help her out of it.

We became good friends because she was the roommate of our mutual friend. She shared everything with me and I would do the same with her. After some time I stopped talking with her because I was scared to ruin our friendship. But a couple of months later, she convinced me to continue with our friendship. I liked her and she too liked me. But I never wanted to be in any kind of relationship with her.


But I could not stick to my decision for long and soon we were in a relationship. Three years later, I was placed in an MNC and she was still preparing for her GATE exam in another city.

She started getting frustrated with everything that I did. But I stood by her and helped her out in every possible way.

She then quit preparing for her GATE exam and started appearing for interviews. I helped her out with all my savings because her father did not want her to quit preparing for GATE. She was placed in an MNC and was posted in the same city as I was.

I got to know that she had made friends with a guy during the interviews. I was okay with it. But the guy would keep texting her throughout the day. He did this even when she was around me. I never complained about it though. Things changed drastically soon after this.

She would always quarrel with me for no reason at all. I don't know what happened but one day I told her that we needed to take a break from each other for a week so that we could start afresh.

She went to Goa with that guy during that week. I did not know about it. I tried calling her but she did not pick up the phone. I got to know that she was in Goa from her Facebook tags. She returned from Goa and called me. We had a good conversation after a long while.

I did not say anything to her as I knew she did not want to discuss things with me.

The fights started again and we eventually broke up. She then texted me and said she wanted to confess something. I became very impatient.

She told me that she had sex with her friend in Goa several times. She also told me that she had kissed him a few months back. I was shattered but eventually made up my mind and decided never to call or text her. I cared for her so I never bothered her again.

I got a text from her after 4-5 months and she said, “Why have you sent our intimate pictures to *****?” I was shocked because I had never sent anything to anyone. My laptop had a password lock and I never shared it with anyone. She eventually broke up with the guy but I never got to know the identity of the person who sent the pictures.

I called her again after 8 months to check if she was okay. But again, she just said that you should not have sent those pictures. I requested her to send me those pictures or send me screenshots of the pictures. But she never did this. We never talked again. She still thinks that I had sent those pictures. And this always bothers me.

I don’t know why I still care for her. I don’t know why it still bothers me so much.

Often we love a person so much that we want them to realize our true worth.  We justify ourselves repeatedly with the hope that they will understand us better. Share this wonderful young man’s story if you too believe that such experiences add a beautiful dimension to our personality.
