As I was walking to the mall with my friends, I couldn’t stop admiring their boyfriend’s car.
I had been dating my boyfriend for three months and he had just gotten the car last week. I was so proud of him for working hard and getting it.
But when we got to the mall, my friends started talking about their boyfriends’ cars. Suddenly, my happiness was gone. My friends’ boyfriends all had Mercedes, while my boyfriend’s car was just a regular Toyota.
At first, I didn’t say anything. But then I couldn’t help but compare our cars. I asked my friends why their boyfriends had such nice cars, while mine didn’t. I wasn’t trying to be mean or anything but I just wanted to know the difference.
My friends didn’t really answer my question, which only made me angrier. I started complaining to my boyfriend, saying that it wasn’t fair that our cars were different.
My boyfriend exploded.
He told me that it wasn’t about the car but about the effort he put into getting it. He said that he was proud of the car he had and that I should be too.
He also said that I should stop comparing our cars to my friends and start being thankful for what we have. He encouraged me to be more supportive and understanding, instead of constantly complaining.
He told me “Sponsor lah talk so much keep ask me get better car”
At first, I wasn’t sure what to think. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized he was wrong.
He expected me to be more ungrateful for what we had, and I should be thankful instead.
I waited for 3 months before breaking up with him as I do not want it to be so obvious. So I can find a boyfriend who drives a better car.
Am I wrong for doing this?
