So she leaves it open?
She doesn’t leave it open, she gets up after I fall asleep and opens it.
She opens the window while you’re asleep.
And you get cold, or what?
I just can’t sleep with the window open. It’s cold, it’s noisy – you know.
So you talked to her about it?
I tried to. I mean, I told her several times that I can’t sleep with the window open. It’s like she doesn’t even listen.
And it’s not just the window. Sometimes she leaves the bathroom door partly open, too.
Well, that seems unnecessary.
Exactly, I don’t want to deal with that for the rest of my life.
Like I said, I’ve tried talking to her about it. I love her and everything, really, but this just isn’t going to work out.
But you still love her?
Oh, yeah, you know, she’s great, mostly. It’s just that, well, I just don’t think we’re meant to be.
Too many open issues.
Right. Like the drawers in the kitchen. Sometimes when she gets a knife or whatever she pushes the drawer closed and it doesn’t go all the way. She leaves it hanging open, like, an inch! It’s so annoying. She doesn’t even notice. All the cabinets, doors, windows, everything.
See, I think it’s some sort of escape thing. Like, psychologically. She wants to leave herself a way out.
Right. She knows it’s not working too, and psychologically she’s trying to escape.
Well, you have to look underneath the surface sometimes, to get to the root of the problem.
