According to you: Career > Love

Posted on Tue, Jan 31, 2012 at 9:49 AM

We were dating for 4 1/2 years, and got engaged 6 months ago. You got a business degree last year and now you break the news to me that you accepted a job offer... in Toronto! Now you're leaving me and starting a new life out there. I told you that I couldn't afford to relocate, but you're still going. On top of that, you break off our engagement. What the fuck! Couldn't start your career here? Nope, you insisted the good jobs were too scarce here and you were willing to move. There are good jobs here, and *I'M* here! Why couldn't you have stuck it out in NS until I saved enough money bagging people's groceries for a living, and then I could move with you? I never felt for another woman the way I feel for you! I thought we were gonna get married and start a family. Almost 5 amazing years together and you want to throw it all away for a career in a big unfriendly city. Did our time together mean nothing to you?! Obviously money is more important to you than someone who has loved you and cared for you all these years. I wish I had known this about you earlier. —Man Left Behind
