DD's bf of 5 months just broke up with her last night and she cried for an hour loudly, then on and off until she fell asleep. I gave her lots of hugs and said take on day at a time. She did talk to a friend and got lots of supportive texts from her girlfriends during this time. She was upset because he said he still loves her and she, him, but he said it's too stressful a time right now, and he wants to focus on school, which is perhaps not the truth. We think he is upset because he foresees the summer as not being the sweeping romance he thinks it should be. She is in the process of getting her license and a job, and is a merit scholar, who will be busy volunteering if she doesn't find a job. His Mom also said to me that if he couldn't see her more than every other week, he wasn't going to want to date her....!!?? And she wanted her over their house as much as he was over here...50/50!!?? She has 2 boys and very different rules there, questionable supervision. We encouraged visits here, and double dates, we drove.
Anyway, she is devastated that he doesn't want to date her anymore, but he still wants to take her to the prom...which I cannot imagine will happen, but she already has the dress, shoes and jewelry...and her best friend has her very first date ever for this dance. She wouldn't get up for school today and I can imagine the horrible feeling of having to pretend they are friends, or even seeing him at school. She has had boyfriends all throughout high school., now a junior. Thoughts?
