This story has been circulating around the internet for a little while now. It’s about a woman who decided to put her relationship to the test and in the process learned an important lesson from it. It might make some of us chuckle.
After the spark in her relationship had faded a little, a woman came up with, what in her opinion was, a brilliant idea: She wanted to test how seriously her boyfriend felt about their relationship and about her; what his reaction would be if she left him and; what he thought about her feelings for him?
To get some answers to these questions, she wrote her boyfriend a letter saying that the relationship was over, that she’d had enough, and that she didn’t see any sense in continuing the relationship. Really all she wanted was a reaction from him, but didn’t actually want to leave him.
Finally her boyfriend came home. She was nervous and excited, lying tensely under the bed. He entered the room and started to read the letter. When he finished reading, the woman couldn’t believe her ears. What on earth? He was whistling and grabbed his phone. This couldn’t be happening. She heard her boyfriend say:
“Hello darling, I’m coming over. The dummy finally got the drift that I’ve been cheating. She’s finally left. What a mistake, that relationship. I’m so happy to be free of her. I wish I’d met you earlier. See you soon!”
The woman was stunned. How could this be? She really had no idea. She lay there in shock for a few minutes. Her boyfriend seemed to be collecting a few things. Once he left the apartment, her tears started to pour down her face. She slowly crawled out from her hiding place.
She pulled herself together and looked around the room. There was a second letter on the desk. It was from her boyfriend, addressed to her. She picked it up and started to read it. When she was finished, she felt so ashamed, but seriously relieved. How stupid could she be? The letter read:
“You buffoon, next time you want to trick me, make sure your feet aren’t hanging out from under the bed. Just gone to the store. See you soon Love.”
