It was one of those moments when I realized I had outgrown my relationship.
I had been with my boyfriend for a year, and when it was time for our first holiday, I had fully expected us to fly business class like how I always did.
I was brought up with the belief that you should always travel in style, and I had been flying business class since I was a child.
It was something I had grown up with, and I didn’t think twice about it.
But my boyfriend, on the other hand, was from a more humble background and had never been able to afford to fly in such luxury.
When the tickets were booked, I was shocked to see that he had only booked us economy class. I felt a wave of disappointment wash over me.
I had always expected that he would be able to provide me with the standard of travel I was used to, and this was a huge let down.
I tried to be understanding. He had worked hard to pay for our trip and he had done his best to make sure we could still go away.
But I couldn’t help feeling a little bit resentful. I was being asked to make a huge compromise, and it just didn’t feel right.
The flight was a long one, and by the time we landed I had made up my mind. It was time to end the relationship.
I think I deserve better, and I was no longer willing to settle for anything less than the best.
Call me pampered or whatever you want, but it was the right choice for me.
I knew that I deserved to be treated with the same level of respect and luxury I had been used to all my life.
It was time for me to find someone who could provide that for me.
