Black people police themselves so much in public
And they don’t even think about it. Don’t talk too loud, don’t make too many requests, don’t complain too forcefully about shitty service, put up with weird ass slightly racial compliments. And sometimes we joke about it like “lol! Better not do (normal human thing) cuz then people might think we’re uncivilized niggers” but it’s a painful constricting way to live. And not a type of way of living that non-Black people will understand
It's hard to tell. It could be manipulation. It could be you actually knocked some sense into him by showing him you were serious about breaking it off and he's seriously hurting. That's why I say give it time. See if he still feels the same way after sleeping on it. Two days from now. Three days from now. A week from now.
Okay I will. He is an extremely sensitive guy and he is very in tune with his feelings so I’m being nice and trying to not be a bitch but it’s getting a little difficult when I feel bad but I also don’t really care because I’m fine. I’ve been in his position before. I’m in his all the time and this my first time in the other chair. I just hope he’s being true and not just trying to manipulate me.
