This message was redirected to Heather by mistake. It's written by someone
whose boyfriend is treating her like crap, and she's trying to get him to
pay more attention to her.
Heather and I have already written her and told her to dump him. I thought
it'd be funny if she started getting emails from other people she doesn't
know (and who she didn't think the letter was going to) telling her their
opinions about her boyfriend.
So, here's a chance for you to make a difference.. :-)

>>think you are running yourself into the ground and that worries me.
>>In terms of our relationship, I am tired of feeling ignored, taken for
>>grantide or like I don't hold any value. I am a person who has thoughts
>>feelings just like you. I am tired of feeling like I am contributing more
>>this relationship. I am tired of feeling like you could careless if I am

>>for me to treat you like you are special (i.e. cards, surprises, breakfast
>>bed etc) because it makes you feel good. Well I like those kinds of things
>>too. How much time would it take to send me a nice e-mail, call me to let
>>know you are thinking about me, write a sweet note/card, pick me flowers
>> People like it when others go out of their way for them. It makes them
>>good. I want to be treated like a girlfriend and I am important I am not
