Is the ability to turn on the waterworks part of the school curriculum here? You see it every day on the Thai soaps, weeping females after having been ditched by the on-screen boyfriend (who also is having it off with the “bad” female), and so it goes on with more floods of tears every episode. The soap is only mirror to real life. My Thai GF thinks she can get away with anything (including the latest cheating on me) if she can turn on enough tears. Well, tears or no tears, she’s out the door.
You’re not really asking for advice from me, are you Petal. You are looking for somebody to tell you that you are doing the right thing, aren’t you, Jacob? In personal problems such as yours, you have to make the decision, not Hillary.
