I’m in school for Emergency Pre-Hospital Medicine, Fire Science and Hazardous Material Control… Sounds quite like I’m blowing smoke up my own ass for studying to be in the Fire/Rescue field, but those are what the degrees are actually labeled as.
I’ve been in a relationship for four years. It’s been quite a lot of work, it was long distance for a awhile there while we attended colleges in different states.
Next year we have planned to move in together. I’m moving out there. I’m the one dropping my shit for her and starting over. I got a job offer at one of the local fire departments. A switch flipped and she went from mild 20 year old nursing student crazy to Call of Cthulhu nuts.
How do I explain it’s what I want for my life, it’s what I’ve always wanted? I worked hard for my degree, I’m leaving everyone and everything behind to go live with her. I tried calmly talking about it and to paraphrase, “Go fuck yourself if you think I’m waiting while you die in a fucking fire.”
WHAT THE FUCK DO I DO?
Man the fuck up.
Don’t ever put up with an ultimatum, especially from some dream killing bitch who thinks she owns you because you’ve been porking her since she was sixteen years old.
For fuck’s sake, dude. You’ve been together for four goddamn years. She knew from day one you were gonna be a fireman. It’s not like you woke up one morning and decided to rob banks or some shit.
Fuck explaining yourself. You don’t owe her an explanation. Unless you two shit kickers already have kids that you’re not telling me about, you’re an idiot for leaving everyone and everything behind to go live with her in the first place.
I know this is gonna come as a shock, but guess what? You don’t have to put up with her crazy ass shit. Not for one burning second. In fact, if I were you, I’d take her up on that offer to go fuck yourself.
Just break it off with her. Do it now while you still can, while you still have your balls. Even if the two of you eventually reconcile, at least she’ll know that it won’t be so easy to castrate you.
Don’t let her selfish fears get in the way of what you want for your life.
