“I met April at a club a few months back. She was my type of girl—she worked hard, partied harder and had a good sense of humour.
We started talking at the bar then went home together that night. She ended up sleeping over for the next five nights.
For the entire month we dated, she acted like the perfect ‘cool’ girlfriend. She encouraged me to hang with my friends and never tried to pressure me into buying things for her.
Then she started acting like we were in a serious relationship, which I didn’t like, but didn’t read too much into. She referred to me as her ‘boyfriend’, when I still thought things were casual and would ask a lot of questions about my female friends.
Things started going really downhill when I got home late one night and found her in my bedroom going through my stuff! Apparently, she convinced my roommate to let her into the house. She said when I hadn’t answered her messages all day, she thought I had dumped her. I hadn’t and I was actually just busy, but I definitely dumped her right there on the spot.
That was the last time I saw or talked to her, so I don’t actually know why she decided to go through my things. My best guess is she was looking for evidence that I was seeing other girls, which wasn’t the case.”
