Oooff. Overhearing this relationship in trouble on the shuttle bus and the guy just told the girl, "I love you and I want to make us work but you're mean AS FUCK and it's wearing me down."
She's just looking at him like she knows he's right but doesn't know what to do about it.
I hope they can make it.
Her: "You're not perfect at all and it feels like you don't know that."
Him: "I do know that and I'm always working on it I fail, I know. A lot. But it just seems like you don't know how to talk through how you feel with me and you're too old to not know how to talk me"
Her: "I know I get really angry --"
Him: "No, you blackout. And you won't go to therapy and I can't live like this forever."
LADY PLEASE GO TO THERAPY SO YOU CAN KEEP THIS MAN IN A GORGEOUS TWEED COAT WHO LOVES YOU
I want them to get through this
Her: "It feels like whatever is wrong with me...like, I'll always be like this and I've tried to work on my anger issues and I'm still like this. I know you deserve someone better than this"
Him: I want a better YOU not someone else. Whatever is wrong I want to fix it
Can you imagine a tall man in a tweed cost telling you,
I DON'T WANT SOMEONE BETTER I WANT A BETTER YOU
Bitch go to therapy, NOW and keep this man who loves you
She's crying and leaning against his chest (I'm bad with numbers but he's at least 6'1") and he's carrying the bag from Whole Foods and wrapping an arm around her
Him: "I love you [nickname]. And I know that you love me I just...am tired of fighting you. I want to love you."
Me, single and dirty and sitting next to a man playing Cam'ron on his portable red speakers:
A TALL MAN IN A PROBSVLY BESPOKEN TWEED COST TOLD A WOC IN NYC THAT HE "WANTS TO LOVE HER"
THIS CAN'T BE REAL I'M ABOUT TO PASS OUT I'M CLEARLY HALLUCINATING
Her: "Therapy just makes me feel like I'm failing all of the time and you don't...I know I don't communicate my feelings...I didn't grow up with that and I had to teach myself. I know I go off, believe me. I just... what if therapy won't work for me? What if i'm just angry."
Her: "When I scream at you I am so ashamed of myself. I don't know if there isn't a night that I get out of bed and cry and just hate myself."
Him: "I feel helpless because I don't want to be screamed at and I feel like I can't help you and I just have to experience it."
Thanks to NYC's shitty infrastructure the bus has stopped multiple times.
THEY HAVE A SEAT NOW IN FRONT OF ME
HE'S CARESSING HER EAR AS SHE'S WIPING HER TEARS
Him: "I can deal with the occasional screaming if you're unlearning and you're trying to be better. I know you're not going to change overnight."
Her: "Why are you even still with me?"
He's going into his wallet omgosh what's happening
Him: "You remember this?"
Her: "I can't believe you still have that [laughs], that's crazy"
Him: "I don't really give a shit about the ballet but you did and you wanted to see Misty Copeland and you you were sooo into it and even b/c you did I wanted to go.
Him: "Never in life have I ever wanted to go see the ballet that bad. I wanted to make you happy. I don't know [NN] but ever since I've met you I just want to make you happy. If I could go inside of you and put a bandaid where you're hurt I would."
Him: "I just want you to be happy and to be with me and have children with me."
Her: "God where are we?" (The windows are real fogged up from the rain)
Her: "Maybe we should get out here and get an Uber"
Me, internally: nooooooooooo
Him: "Do you want to do that? We can get off here."
Driver is driving man goes up to the driver
Noooo don't leave me/Twitter!!!
Him: "He says we're close. We'll just get off at the next stop"
Her: "Okay. Let's order thai."
Him: "Sure. But I want to talk about this because by the end of the week I need you to make an appt somewhere. Would it help if I went with you?"
Her: " I don't know. I think so? I don't know where to look I mean that's the thing no one can find a good therapist in NY."
Him: I'll ask my mom if she has any recommendations I mean she has to right?
Her: "Don't tell your mom she already thinks I'm crazy"
Him: She does but she likes you and she told me to not bring anyone home that I'm not marrying so I gotta make "you" work...did you get the umbrella?"
THEY'RE LEAVING US
THEY'RE GONE. HE'S CARRYING THE GROCERIES AND HER ARM IS AROUND HER WAIST
AND I'M STILL SINGLE, DIRTY SND LISTENING TO CAM'RON FROM THIS MAN'S RED PORTABLE SPEAKER SET
I did not expect this. Wow. I thought this might be a break up scene on the MTA.
I hope that for once, love wins with them wherever they are
And normally I wouldn't but I didn't live tweet mtg Tanqueray last week on the bus (ALL OF THE GOOD ENCOUNTERS ARE ON THE BUS PPL) and I said if I got another good one I wouldn't let it pass me by...
THIS WAS GOOD
I MISSED MY STOP WHICH WAS FURTHER SOUTH TO STAY AND LISTEN BECAUSE THIS WAS FOR THE AGES
