Did you know Hallmark sells “Troubled Relationship” cards??
I’d be so damn good at writing those cards.
- “Sorry I refused to acknowledge the way the way that patriarchal bullshit made it so that you will always be less secure financially than I am and how even if we are married and stuff, I could still leave you and ultimately fuck you over because LOL thanks for supporting me in my career while you put yours on the backburner LOL”
- “We should be proud of how we handled that stupid situation I created by not managing my friendships with members of the opposite sex better”
- “The way you touch me is not really thrilling but it’s better than being touched by some stranger and I’m too lazy to start over with someone new, ergo, I love you”
- “I’m pretty sorry about how all the hard grunt work/endpoint responsibility/financial fallback of raising children falls to you, but, like, that’s the way it is, so love me anyway!”
Ahaha you really are the best at that!
