Does she love me or her friend?

Does she love me or her friend?

130423 06b

At the age of 21, medical student Songha (a name given by LIFT) has big love problems that he is afraid he may never solve.

Songha has been with his girlfriend for two years. He says she is kind, friendly and beautiful. They have encountered countless problems, but there is one that stands out in particular.

“We are both the kind of person who gets angry easily, which is the cause of most of our troubles,” says Songha, dressed in jeans, a black T-shirt and sport shoes.

After thinking over that problem for awhile, he raised one example. His girlfriend likes to wear shorts, but he does not like her too. Whenever he tells her not to wear shorts, she gets angry and says: “You do not want me to look pretty.”

Songha’s girlfriend also likes to hang out with her friends when Songha is not around. She does not want Songha to call her during that time, but Songha calls her anyway.

That bothers her and makes her angry.

“You are annoying,” she will say according to Songha. “You don’t give me time to do what I want to do.”

Sometimes, Songha thinks that her girlfriend likes her friends more than him.

“I just want her to speak to me more gently, no matter if she is with her friends, because it is not difficult to do,” says Songha hopelessly.
