Dear Thelma: She left me again and again, but I just couldn’t give up

I’ve been with this girl for four years now. Throughout our years together, apart from having the occasional quarrel like any other normal couple, we were quite good together. We lived together after dating for six months, and we bought a new house together. I knew it was a mistake.

However, she occasionally felt “lost” and would request to move out to be alone. Usually, this would be just a “false alarm” as she ends up staying on and not moving out.
