Yeah, and then you have the nerve to tell me at the door that I should be saying sorry for like, not doing anything? Okay, I understand me throwing that cold water on you made you mad, but it never should have gotten to this. And then, you tell me I should say sorry and start cussing at me again, so yeah I’m gonna tell you to leave cause I’m not gonna let anybody talk to me that way. Especially if it’s not something that’s worth talking to me that way about, like.. If you had a nice reason to talk to me that way, then.. I probably wouldn’t have gotten that upset but.. It just proves that… I don’t know, I get–I know you have feelings for me, but you just–It never seems like you want to be in a relationship, even when we’re around each other it just doesn’t seem that way, I mean it’s–you’re so weird, like, when we text you’re all lovey dovey and.. this and that and then as soon as we get face to face it’s just like.. You’re nothing but a complete fuckin asshole to me to be completely honest with you. I have to ask you for… a kiss all the time, or just, anything, like everything you do is just.. Most of the time negative towards me. And I just wanted to.. Ask you why over the phone, but apparently I’m not gonna get that chance, so.. I’ll let you go. I mean, I know you haven’t known me, for that long, but.. You should know I have no problem just not talking anymore and, I mean, here I am calling you fourteen times and you can’t even pick up once. But, it’s only because I wanted, just to kind of get, why this is kind of happening over nothing, but… that’s fine. I’ll leave you alone and I’ll let you do your thing I guess.

Hi babe! Um… nothing’s wrong. Not even a little bit. I’m just on my way to work and I just–honestly can’t stop thinking about you, and I can’t text you cause I’m driving, but… I just… really love you, a lot. And I really miss you. And I’m kind of really sad about it today. I mean I’m always sad about it, but, you know, but… honestly, like… you were–the first thing–on my mind when I woke up. You were the last thing on my mind before I fell asleep. And my body honestly just knows to wake up at 2:00 now. And I wake up at 2:00 every night. And I text you, and… I know that things suck, but, just at the end of the day knowing that you’re my girlfriend is… honestly anything I could ever ask for. And I’m–probably the luckiest person in the world and it’s pretty great. And–you could get–you could be schizophrenic, you could get alzheimer’s, you could–literally just… get anything, and I don’t even care… cause I’m so willing–to go–through all of that if at the end of the day you’re still the last thing on my mind and the first thing when I wake up. But none of it matters, and… I love you a lot. And I don’t know why I’m rambling, but I really, just love you a lot and I hope you have a good day, and I will text you first thing when I get off and honestly if this voicemail doesn’t go through I’m gonna be pissed! (laughs) But, I love you Tracy. Have a good day okay? Bye.

Or how to talk about them, or anything like that and I can’t talk to Emily about them because.. I don’t think that she really understands, and Whitney wouldn’t really understand because… Whitney didn’t have any of these feelings when she got married. And I just… (sighs) I don’t know. I just had a lot of feelings. And, uh, you were the only person I could think of, but, it’s not a huge deal. I am good. I promise. And I will make it through my evening. And, yeah.

Alright I’m just gonna leave you a message, since, apparently you can’t pick up. I just don’t get how you could tell me I kicked you out when you literally.. Cussed me out and then told me you were just gonna leave. And then, you get out the shower and literally get your bags and walk to the door so… that’s not me kicking you out. Yeah, and then you have the nerve to tell me at the door that I should be saying sorry for like, not doing anything? Okay, I understand me throwing that cold water on you made you mad, but it never should have gotten to this. And then, you tell me I should say sorry and start cussing at me again, so yeah I’m gonna tell you to leave cause I’m not gonna let anybody talk to me that way. Especially if it’s not something that’s worth talking to me that way about, like.. If you had a nice reason to talk to me that way, then.. I probably wouldn’t have gotten that upset but.. It just proves that… I don’t know, I get–I know you have feelings for me, but you just–It never seems like you want to be in a relationship, even when we’re around each other it just doesn’t seem that way, I mean it’s–you’re so weird, like, when we text you’re all lovey dovey and.. this and that and then as soon as we get face to face it’s just like.. You’re nothing but a complete fuckin asshole to me to be completely honest with you. I have to ask you for… a kiss all the time, or just, anything, like everything you do is just.. Most of the time negative towards me. And I just wanted to.. Ask you why over the phone, but apparently I’m not gonna get that chance, so.. I’ll let you go. I mean, I know you haven’t known me, for that long, but.. You should know I have no problem just not talking anymore and, I mean, here I am calling you fourteen times and you can’t even pick up once. But, it’s only because I wanted, just to kind of get, why this is kind of happening over nothing, but… that’s fine. I’ll leave you alone and I’ll let you do your thing I guess. So, I don’t know what else to say.
