Let me start off by saying that I love my roommate. She’s my best friend and has been for years.
Now, even when you love someone you can grow apart and begin to resent certain things about that person.
For instance, I resent that ever since she started dating, he’ll call him Kyle, our relationship has been tossed by the wayside. Now, I get it, it happens, but it still hurts to know that if Kyle is around, she couldn’t give 2 about me being there or not. She never answers my texts anymore, our work schedules have us barely seeing each other and when we are home at the same time if Kyle isn’t here she’s in her room facetiming him. This is my house too, but I constantly feel in the way when Kyle is here. I feel like I’m interrupting their dates and their time together, I feel uncomfortable and out of place in my own home.
I’m very excited to live on my own in a few months when our lease is up and RM moves closer to Kyle to prepare for their impending nuptials. But until then it would be nice to have a friend around, it would be nice to have someone to talk to when I come home at the end of the day.
But I’ve been replaced. It’s happened before and it will happen again and I’m sure I’ll do the same to someone when I find my own Kyle, but until then it just sucks.
