I think I’m at the end of my rope with my relationship. It’s not making me happy anymore because we fight a lot, and we seem to be deeply incompatible in a few important ways. My girlfriend thinks we should give it one final try, and change some things in both of us to make it work. I’m tempted to try, especially because I still really love her. Should I try again or just head for the hills? Thanks!
Here’s an answer in 3-2-1 form. My hunch is that you’re writing to me because you already know the answer but want to hear it from a third party. You basically said everything in your second sentence, and the first thing you should always listen to is your gut feeling. And that’s saying “skedaddle.” Sorry, boo, breakups are brutal, but it’ll be better for you both in the long run. Good luck!
