This boyfriend had his vacation with friends which was turned upside down when he received a call from his girlfriend saying her mother had tragically suffered a stroke. Now acting as her mother’s carer, she feels the boyfriend didn’t do enough to support her through such a tough time.
A Promising Love Turned Upside Down
Jenny and Mike had been dating for about a year and everything seemed perfect until a terrible thing happened out of nowhere.
An Unexpected Tragedy
Jenny’s mum had a stroke, leaving the whole family devastated with Jenny taking responsibility for looking after her.
Boyfriend Adding to the Heartache
While Mike was away on vacation in a remote place with friends, he received the news.
Being physically distant and having limited ways to communicate, Mike tried to console Jenny, express his love, and offer help.
He Didn’t Support Her
He explains, “I thought I was doing enough, but it turns out she needed more.”
Shocking Admission Proves His Disloyalty
Shockingly, he said, “I didn’t know what kind of support she wanted and how much of it to give since she didn’t tell me, and in any event I was away with friends and wanted to be present with them.”
Make It Right
Mike wanted to know if Jenny was upset, hoping to make things right.
Tearful Response Adds to Drama
But her response hit him hard, she felt hurt, thinking he hadn’t supported her enough.
He Just Didn’t Know What to Do
Mike tried to explain himself to Jenny, arguing that he did check in with her but struggled to know how much support she wanted.
It Was the End
The argument intensified, with both of them pointing fingers. Mike defended his actions, saying he never valued his friends more than her.
But both of them knew that this was probably the end, “I can’t handle all the anger directed at me,” he confessed before storming out.
Heartbroken and Seeking Advice
Now, Mike has turned to Reddit to seek advice and ask what he did wrong, with users not backing him at all, “Hopefully the good news is that she now sees you more clearly and will avoid you as a potential husband/future father/partner,” one user boldly stated.
“I hope she finds someone worth her time and effort, you sure don’t,” Another user said, giving Mike a clear answer.
