What a fucking year it's been.. and it's only the 4th.

Let's see, I've just split up with my girlfriend of more than 4 years (and she's still living with me), my car got whacked by golf ball sized hail stones (and it's not insured), my back verandah at home turns into a swimming pool with heavy rain (and SA is having record high rainfall this season), and I haven't slept since Sunday night.

FML. 🤦 I need a holiday after the holidays..

    Car insurance is usually mandatory, mind if I ask where you live? Simple curiosity

    @ess3sq in some countries, it is.. here in South Africa, it's only required if a vehicle is financed by a bank (my Accord is full paid off).

    Problem is, the last 2-odd years have been absolute hell on my finances and, ironically, I can't afford the monthly payments for comprehensive insurance.

    This is why a future vehicle design of mine is going to be hailstone proof.

    I remember asking women what they would do if they wasn't in a relationship with their boyfriend who lived with them.

    So far, I've not found a single woman who didn't say they would kick him out that day !

    As such, I'm curious to ask why she is still living there ?

    I can answer for myself, when I was in a similar situation, I didn't want to be so heartless and throw her out onto the streets. ( Though she would probably have just gone back to her parents ! )

    But next time, I think I may well do that, since I hear that is what they would do to us !

    @Nanos I like your thought process, and can't help but agree with you.. with that said, it is kinda complicated.

    There is a silver lining though, now that I think of it.. 🤔 compared to the past year that we've been together, nothing much actually changed when we "broke up". Suffice to say, nothing "relationship" related was happening anyway.

    But yeah, she actually doesn't have anywhere to go right now. And she's epileptic. Oh yeah, and our cats (2 each) have become their own little family too..

    I've found myself a whole new level of "complicated" with this one.

    @ZaLiTHkA It always seems to be complicated. :-)

    Though is always cut and dried to the other person !

    I'm reminded earlier I was talking to someone about an ex of mine who left me, and then a couple of weeks later I moved away.

    She was so upset that I wasn't going to be conveniently around anymore !

    But wasn't upset when she left me..

    I think she moved back to her parents after her new boyfriend dumped her, or maybe she dumped him !

    I guess things could get more complicated if you moved a new girlfriend into your place. ;-)

    I think I now understand better why when someone wants to break up with someone else, that they don't. But instead they behave really badly so that the other person wants to leave first !

    Maybe you need a new hobby that they hate. :-)

    @ess3sq In most countries mandatory car insurance is for traffic incidents, not hail

    @PAKA that's a good point, I guess that's what we in SA would call "this party, fire, and theft" insurance. Oh the other hand, "comprehensive" insurance would cover hail damage...

    @PAKA fair enough

    Always time for things to improve - the best years of my life so far have started pretty rough, and the worst one started pretty well (no prizes for guessing the latter one)

    So.. things happened, and things were said, culminating in "you don't want me in your life, so get the fuck out of mine", and.. well.. she's gone now. 🤔😕

    Feels kinda liberating..? In a twisted kinda way? Time will tell.

    Thanks for all the supportive comments, by the way.. nice to know there are still some decent people left in the world. 🖖
