In Today’s episode on Yarn central, six people share their stories on how they got their fragile hearts broken. Their stories will make you wonder if you should break that person’s heart first before they break yours or if you should just stay on your own and be single because only someone that is eating will be served breakfast.
One thing about me is that I love deeply. It’s either all or nothing and this fact about me has whooped my ass so many times. I was going through a bad break up with my ex at that time and my friend thought it wise for me to start meeting other people. She introduced me to him because she thought he would be the perfect distraction. He was. I had no intentions of going into another relationship at the time so I made it clear to him. He seemed okay with it and I was pleased. We were good friends and we hung out very often and like relationship experts would say, “start off as good friends.” I didn’t know I was starting off something good which was headed for destruction anyway.
After a year of being friends, we realized that we wanted more than that and just like that, I found myself in another promising relationship. When it was two weeks to our first year anniversary of being together, we had a heated argument and up until now, I do not know what started the argument and we didn’t talk to each other for a week. On the day of the anniversary, he sent me a text to meet up. I was excited because I thought he finally came to his senses to apologize so we could have a perfect anniversary date. Prior to this time, we always had arguments but found a way to resolve them or just move past them but this last one was very bad. He broke up with me on our anniversary date saying that the way we argued over little things only meant we weren’t supposed to be together. I loved him very much… I went home and cried for days. This happened in 2018 and till now, I haven’t tried getting into anything serious with anyone.
I got my heart broken in my first mature relationship. Everything was going perfectly between us but along the line, I couldn’t afford to keep her as I was a student. Other young men who could do better started coming around and there wasn’t much I could do about it. She took in for me and had an abortion also without my consent. She was to be having triplets. I was really happy to be a daddy but I wasn’t aware when she did the abortion. A few weeks later, she moved on with another guy that could do better. I was deeply hurt because this was the relationship I had put my all into. I lost interest in everything. I became sensitive to things and I couldn’t get over her for four years. I hate committing to relationships now.
We were classmates in secondary school and he was my first love. We dated even while we were in different universities. This is someone I declared my love for every time we talked on the phone and he would do the same too. When we were almost done with our exams in 300L, he texted me one evening and asked me if I had ever imagined myself with anyone else and I replied him with no because it was him I wanted to be with. He smiled and said that he has been thinking about the both of us and wondering if there was someone else out there who would make a better partner. I was confused because it was going really well between us until that moment and I asked him what he really wanted and he said he wanted a break.
We didn’t talk to each other for two weeks. He called me and told me he was starting to fall out of love with me and he wanted to be alone and figure things out and perhaps, try with another person. I broke up with him first because I couldn’t let him completely shatter me to pieces. I lost weight from crying and thinking about what had went wrong between us. After we graduated, we surprisingly saw each other at a supermarket when I went visiting my aunt and I knew that I was still in love with him even though it appeared as if he didn’t feel the same.
I was never the type of guy to be deeply in love with a girl because I tend to find myself walking away once I felt it was going in too deep. I acted differently with this girl because she was strangely different and I loved her. To cut the story short, she cheated on me with my friend. According to the both of them, they only kissed but what hurt me more was that my friend knew how crazy I was over the girl. He knew I wanted to go really far with the girl but of all persons he chose to “test her loyalty” to me was this one that he knew I was really into. To her defense, she said she didn’t think our relationship was that serious and that was how it ended. You want something deep with someone and they decide to trivialize it. I get it tho, I was getting a dose of my own medicine but it hurt me terribly. It took me two years to perfectly heal from the heartache and this drove me to drinking.
We met on the BRT bus one evening when I was coming back from my IT. She noticed I was texting with GBwhatsapp and requested I sent it to her. I did and instead of me to continue listening to my music, I continued talking to her. She told me her name and it turned out that she was going to UNN and was in her last year in school. We got exchanged contacts and started talking. With time, we started getting all lovey dovey and shit. When I got done with my IT, I went back to Owerri and she decided to go to her school for her clearance too. However, ASUU had their warning strike which lasted for a week and she saw it as an opportunity to visit me at school. After that, she went back to Benin where her parents live and that was where her phone got bad. I texted her on IG every morning and evening to keep the communication going from August till October until I finally decided to take sometime off of social media.
When I became active on social media again, I texted her and this was in December, she told me she had moved on with her life and I didn’t bother to contact her for over a month. And she couldn’t continue the relationship because she was seeing someone else and she wasn’t ready to double date. All these came out from her from just one week of me not replying her text. I was deeply hurt because I wanted it to work between us.
We dated for some years and it was going smoothly until the quarantine hit and we didn’t get to see as much. She was going through some things with her family too. Communication strained and I was trying to keep the whole thing together. Then she told me she kissed someone else and she apologized and said we would fix things up but things were going downhill from there. There was really no need to continue with the relationship so we called it quits. I understood everything that happened but it really hurt me.
