I am waiting to start a new job. Have about a week and a half till I start. This morning out of the blue DP text, yes text to say he didn't want to live together anymore and in fact doesn't know if he wants to be with me at all. I am pissed off, confused and upset. I have close family in Dubai and am v tempted to book a flight for tomorrow and go until I need to be back for work. DP now very keen to talk but me not so much. Suppose more of a WWYD

Go go go smile have a great time.
And get the support you need from your family.

Oh yes, of course you should go! And don't respond to any of his messages, either.

Absolutely I would go. Even if a arsehole dp hadn't dropped that bombshell.

Go for it.

Shakey15000 Mon 31-Oct-16 15:34:46

Yup. I would not respond or a short "Fine by me" and book the flight.

I would go in a heartbeat. Make sure he can't get any of your stuff though.

Go. Absolutely.

That's what I was about to type. Make sure you have safeguarded all your stuff, you don't want it gone/trashed when you get back.

Yep! I would go! It will be good for you to get a bit of space to work out how you feel about this text. Some processing time is never a bad thing.

Yes get it booked!

Go!! Do it!

Go go go.

Yes, go! The weather in Dubai is beautiful at the moment. And it would be a real FU to your DP, not that you should go for that reason alone.

I would book it, but take a day to secure your stuff and chat to him if he's up for it. Go with as much information as possible so you don't spend your lovely time away trying to decipher what he is thinking. Then you can go with as settled a mindset as possible, your stuff is safe and you might know a bit more.

Have a great time though!

Don't forget your passport! wink

Make sure your stuff is safe - dump it with a friend if you live together or make sure he doesn't have a key (and get a friend to pop in). And GO!

ohdearme1958 Mon 31-Oct-16 15:58:39

Go. Go. Go. And have a great time. The weather in this part of the world has taken a fantastic turn for the better this last week and you'll be able to go for nice beach walks and trips out into the Desert.

You're family are just who you need at a time like this.

Change the locks, book the flight and enjoy the break before you start your new job. Whatever he wants to talk about can wait...

FlamingoSnuffle Mon 31-Oct-16 16:01:21

This is exactly what storage units are for. Get your stuff out and get on that flight.

OzzieFem Mon 31-Oct-16 16:20:07

Make sure he cannot access your finances or any cash in the house and GO, GO, GO.

Teacupinastorm Mon 31-Oct-16 16:23:48

Wow I love you all! We only have one key which is with me so that's fine. I also don't think he's the smashing up or stealing type but I suppose you never know. Thinking I may book to go Wednesday and have tomorrow to get sorted. Not sure where any of my holiday stuff is but don't really care!

Ginslinger Mon 31-Oct-16 16:26:29

yes go, make sure your finances are safe and change passwords on anything like icloud etc

ohdearme1958 Mon 31-Oct-16 16:28:54

OP, you don't need your holiday stuff. Just pack a few changes of clothes, things dry very quickly, and get on that plane.

Remember - one on, one spare, one in the wash. smile

Yes go without a backwards glance. Your DP is a fucker you know for dumping you by TEXT! but I'm sure you know that!
