Can You Hear Me Now? Dating and Listening To Your Partner

What had I awakened to? My alarm was blaring and when I opened my eyes, there he was, standing over me angrily.

"Do you have anything to say for yourself," he shouted.

I rubbed my eyes and tried to see what was going on through the blurriness and spots.

"I saw the texts. They from your ex?" he yells as loud as he can.

I didn't even know what he was talking about. I went to pick up my phone off the bedside table, and it was gone.

"Yes, I threw your phone out the bathroom window."

"You what? Why?" I asked in disbelief.

"It's over. I'm leaving." He then stormed out and slammed the door behind him.

I set there in utter confusion. What had just happened? I slowly pulled myself out of bed and made my way to the bathroom. I looked out the window but couldn't see my phone. We were on the second floor. Hopefully, it still works, I thought. I threw on my bathrobe and made my way out the front door and down the stairwell.

I made my way around the apartment building and around to where the bathroom window was located.

"Thank god," I said with relief. It was there and looked to still be operational. There was a message on the phone I didn't recognize.

"Hey babe, see you tonight." That was all it read. I called the number and quickly found out it was a wrong number. I tried to contact my boyfriend, but he had blocked me and never would agree to meet up with me after that. It was that day I realized how much the internet and cellphones had damaged our human relationships and how it had blown up dating culture.

From that day on, I decided to rid those things from my life and thanked god for getting that creep out of it too. He had wanted to leave that day and was just looking for any excuse. In every relationship, there is always that person, the one looking for the way out. And I was glad he found it.
