She admitted she’d caused most of the conflict between them because she’d been trying to change him. He thought she wanted him to be like Kyle, but she said Kyle had nothing to do with it. He felt that they’d both enjoyed rubbing their relationship in Kyle’s face. She wasn’t proud of that. She didn’t want to be petty. She wanted stability, commitment and respect.
