I woke up and felt really happy and confident. I’ve been feeling down lately and I decided to get dressed up. I showered, did my hair, put eyeliner on, some earrings, a necklace he got me for Christmas, and some cute clothes. I felt really happy and confident. And we just had a conversation a few days ago about how dressing up can help your self confidence so much.
We get on Discord (in a long-distance relationship) and he doesn’t say anything. I finally say “notice anything?” And he says “You’re wearing the necklace I got you.” I then point out all the other stuff, and he says, “you wearing eyeliner just reminds me of when you put that on all the time to hide yourself from me.” That hurt me, and I explain that. And he says “I don’t like makeup.” And then I get even more hurt and I left to take it off. Then he called me fragile and childish for doing that, and now is upset I won’t accept his apologies. I just felt confident and I know he thinks I’m pretty without it, but I just think he could’ve been so much nicer about it. How can I make him understand saying “I’m sorry” doesn’t fix how much he hurt me?
UPDATE: I told him I posted this and he told me he doesn’t want me anymore and I’m a c*nt and that he hates me.
