real talk you dodged a bullet there.
also you live in Denver go smoke some legal weed.
also don't think of things like relationships as "the final piece" of your life. Life isn't some to-do list.
Or she had anxiety issues and couldn't face him?
I had a brief thing with a chick I met online, she was super cool but suffered from severe anxiety and depression, to the point where she struggled to even get out of the house or to go see me, despite being able to chat on the phone for hours.
Sounds like she's just not in a good spot in her life, for whatever reason and took the easy way out.
Not to laugh about your situation, but I find it a compliment you value our work so much that you want your scarf back in the middle of a greater issue existing here........
but on the more serious side, be happy she broke the relationship off now, rather than if you had a child together several years down the road or even was married where you had to share half of your shit with her because some court of justice system decided you have to when it wasn't you who decided you wanted out.
Most young women nowadays are out of touch with reality to the point where its scary. there is almost no incentive today for men to get into relationships or get married because the deck is almost stacked against you.
One of the ugly secrets of break ups and divorce is that since the 1980's 90% of all divorces are filed by women and usually not for reasons we would expect.
Had you sent her a breakup email or any kind of correspondence the way she did you would be the biggest jerk around.
Feminism might have given women empowerment and opportunities to be treated "equally' with men, but it has also destroyed and continue to destroy many young women with the bullshit notion that they can have it all and dont have to settle. it has many many young women narcissistic egomaniacs who cannot know or appreciate a good man when she sees one, simply because she is often distrustful of all men.
God bless lucky women who still exist who are not caught up in the unrealistic projections that will only lead to depression and unhappiness for many later on in life............
