I bought return airfares to Australia with my girlfriend (from Canada) when we were still together 3 months ago. We didn’t really discuss everything properly when i made the purchase, all i knew was that i wanted her to come home with me to meet my family and friends, we were both really excited about it then, but now i am feeling the repercussions of that decision.
We split up 1 month ago, it was initially mutual, we felt we were too different for each other (goals, direction in life), but now i feel i have made a big mistake in letting her go because i still have feelings for her.
We leave for Australia in 2 weeks, im still not over her, she has already moved on emotionally and when we broke up we convinced eachother that when in Oz, we would just be travelling buddies. I don’t think i can bring myself to do this, it will be too hard.
However! it gets a little more complicated…
The tickets i bought are non-refundable, and my travel insurance doesn’t cover cancellations, only medical so, i either cancel her flight and lose 00 or get her to come with me and tag along with me as a ‘friend’. At this stage in the game i feel it is too soon for me to label her as a friend because im not over her completely, so travelling overseas with her will just make it ten times worse, and i fear i won’t have any fun.
If you could give me some insight into what i could do, or if anyone has any similar stories they can share with me that would help me out just the same!!
