It all started when my girlfriend and I were discussing our future, and she said that we should think about buying a house.
I had been thinking about buying a car for a while now, and I thought that it would make more sense to purchase a car than a house because it was more affordable.
I told my girlfriend that buying a car was more important than buying a house because it would be more affordable.
She didn’t agree with me and thought that buying a house was the better option. She said that it would be a good investment, and we could use it as a home down the line.
She tried to explain to me that buying a car is just like buying a depreciating asset and since public transport is so accessible now there is not point in owning a car.
She also said that it is more possible to sell a house for a profit.
I didn’t see the point, and I argued that a car would be more practical and cost less.
My girlfriend didn’t understand why I was so adamant about buying a car over a house. She kept saying that a house was a better investment, while I kept saying that a car was more practical and would be more affordable.
We went back and forth, and it became clear that we weren’t going to reach a conclusion.
Finally, I had enough. I told my girlfriend that it was my decision to make, and I was going to buy a car. I told her that she could either accept it or not, but I was going to do it regardless.
I was so adamant about buying a car that I didn’t even think about how this might make her feel.
My girlfriend was so upset that she got up and left. She said she couldn’t believe that I would choose a car over her.
I tried to explain that I was only thinking about practicality and affordability, but she didn’t want to hear it. She said that she thought I cared about her opinions more than having a car and that I should’ve taken her feelings into account because my words about a car does not make any sense.
The next morning, my girlfriend still hadn’t come home. I called her multiple times, but she never answered.
After a few days, I finally got a text from her saying that she was done. She said that she couldn’t be with someone who put a car before her and that she was leaving.
I was devastated. I thought that buying a car was the right decision, but now I realize that I should’ve taken my girlfriend’s feelings into account.
I was so focused on the practicality and affordability of the car that I didn’t think about how it would affect her.
I regret not listening to my girlfriend more, and I hope that one day we can get back together.
But for now, I’m stuck with an expensive car that I can’t even enjoy, because I know it cost me the love of my life.
