Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things I Was Thinking As I Hunted For Apartments in Manhattan Today

1) This is not fair.

2) It's immature of me to think this isn't fair, and it's probably unhelpful.

3) I should be working right now, but I don't even know if I could work because I'm so upset.

4) I'm so angry with Raj for doing this to me.

5) I shouldn't be feeling sorry for myself, but I am feeling sorry for myself.

6) I wish I could lie down and cry somewhere.

7) I hate brokers. They are all slimy bastards.

8) I hate the fact that brokers charge 15%, which comes out to be approximately $3000 for an apartment with a monthly rent of $1800.

9) That's a cute coffee shop.

10) I hate that I have to be looking for a new apartment right now.

11) He shouldn't have had me move in to his place and move all of my stuff into his place if he was going to quit on me.

12) Our apartment was finally looking cute. It's not fair that I have to leave it, and it's not fair that I have to do all of this work myself because of his decision to stop trying.

13) I'm never moving in with another male.

I live in Manhattan myself - so I can so relate to what you are going through.
I'm sorry you're the one who has to move.
But I hope the move brings great things into your life.
Sending my best,

ohmigod. i have gone through all of that and it is sooooo unfair. i remember i had to stand online (like a concert) to see a room not an apartment, but a room with 100 other girls and it sucked!!!

I'm so sorry! I hope that you bought yourself a cup of consolation at that cute coffee shop. You poor thing. I just love a pity party. Enjoy yours without excuses

All love,

Yes, its unfair and it sucks and im sure Raj will suffer for all of this in the end. Karma can be a biatch

Apartment hunting is hard. I can't imagine doing it in Manhattan. Raj will definitely suffer. To make sure, leave a fish fillet in the closet. Immature, sure. But funny as hell.

sending cyber hugs your way and good luck wishes in your search!

Well, he may be a quitter, but you're not. You get to have a place that will mark your freedom and independence from him. You get to cry in a bubble bath in your own place and not be disturbed by material items that only make you more upset. You get to heal, and come out of the whole thing stronger. He will continue to be reminded of you because he's staying.

I'm sending you all the positive apartment hunting vibes I can!

Hi Everyone, Thank you for the support! One thing I want to clarify, I do not want Raj to suffer. I still love him and I'm so upset that this relationship has no worked out, and of course I'm angry about part of it. But I don't want him to suffer. Ultimately, I hope that we will both find happiness.
