My girlfriend and I have been together for nearly two years and as with any relationship, we’ve had our ups and downs. Thankfully, we're still together. However just a couple of months ago our relationship was in serious danger. Well, 'serious danger' is an understatement - she basically dumped me. I didn’t realize it, but I had begun to neglect my girlfriend. She would complain that I wasn’t making an effort to spend quality time with her any more, that I was taking her for granted and all the things that women expect us to do for them. I'd tell her that I was really busy at work etc. However, looking back I realize that I was in the wrong.
Why my girlfriend dumped me
I remember vividly the day when she broke up with me. We had planned to go out for dinner, but I had volunteered myself for overtime work. And I forgot to call her and let her know. By the time I got home and realized we were supposed to go out, the damage had already been done. When I visited her apartment that night she made it clear that she never wanted to speak to me ever again. I was distraught, I felt lost and hopeless. I tried everything that I could to win her back but nothing seemed to work. I called, I texted, tweeted and even wrote notes. Still nothing worked.
How I got my girlfriend back
One day while walking by the local flower store I saw 2 women admiring some flowers. I guess out of pure sadness and desperation I struck up conversation with them. I told them about my story and they suggested that I buy my girlfriend some flowers. The first thing that came to my mind was that flowers are expensive. Nevertheless, I wondered into the store and started to look around. Now, I am not a rich person and believe me when I saw the prices of flowers I felt even more depressed than before because it was clear I couldn’t afford them.
Luckily for me, the same two women told me I could buy silk flowers for about half the cost of the real ones without compromising looks or quality. They showed me both real and silk flowers and I couldn't tell the difference between the two; however my wallet could. Needless to say that I went ahead and bought the silk flowers with enough cash left over to buy her a nice card and her favourite chocolate. All I can say was that my girlfriend was pretty thrilled when I sent the gifts to her office. She didn’t call me immediately but she did show up at my apartment that night. We are back together and I owe it all to those gorgeous silk flowers.
