DEAR AUNTIE ABENA,
How proper or improper am I feeling?
I feel so resentful about my girlfriend of just 3 months because she recently vividly described the 4-year love escapade she experienced with her ex.
While she recounted what she referred to as “an unbeatable and unforgettable spree,” I played the I-am-happy-for-you audience to her spitting narrative, and quite childishly, she would continue so-excitedly.
In short, I now feel she has been “used” too much. I’ve not told her – only harbouring it, and that has made me so resentful of her.
A part of my conscience tells me that much as I am not a virgin myself, my feeling of resentment is unjustified. But the “hatred” keeps surging in me. I seem unable to subdue it, and want out of the relationship.
Perhaps she should have been discreet. Perhaps I am not quite emotionally mature or am I justified?
