On Vanderpump Rules, we see Stassi Schroeder struggle in an on-and-off relationship with now-ex boyfriend Patrick Meagher. Talking about their dating on the show, she said that she doesn’t even like discussing it with her friends because she was embarrassed by the roller-coaster relationship.
Meagher and Schroeder got acquainted over Twitter and Schroeder ended up moving to New York with her man a couple years ago. She then left Vanderpump Rules and attempted to move on with her life. Later on, the couple decided to move back to the West Coast, which pleased Schroeder. Unfortunately, their relationship did not last. Schroeder recently told People about how she’s currently playing the field dating and she explained:
I’ve had a really good time. I’m like, actively trying not to do what I normally do, which is just jump right into a relationship … I actually didn’t know how independent I was, and that’s been really cool [to discover]. When you’re just alone all the time, you really do learn that you can handle shit.
When Schroeder and her man broke up for the final time, Schroeder talked about the split on her podcast “Ask Stassi”. Schroeder revealed:
Because we’ve broken up and gotten back together so many times, it was like, Godammit, we can’t do this pattern anymore, this routine of breaking up and getting back together every month. I can’t do it. Like, I can’t. And so I have to do something to make this official … It’s not about getting rid of Patrick; it’s about getting rid of this routine. We fight all the time.
Schroeder then added:
This is a whole different type of break-up. It’s like a whole different type of thing. I didn’t lose any feelings for him. None of that changed. It’s just, like, I can’t handle this. Like, you don’t fit into my life. You don’t try to fit into my life enough, and we keep fighting, and I can’t handle breaking up all the time … And it’s not about settling for him. He’s a wonderful man. Nobody would be settling by being with him. It’s settling for the way that we are together. I can’t settle for that.
Schroeder also tweeted the news in a post that was later deleted. Her explanation for posting the tweet was:
I feel like I tweeted it because I deserve and he deserves so much better than this relationship where no one ever knows if we’re together or apart. We deserve something stable or steady … The fact that I tweeted it out, it’s pretty fucking done. It’s huge. For me to say that out loud to strangers, to people, for me, it’s a big deal. I’ve never done that. I have kept everything to myself and our family and friends. Like, I don’t say anything out loud.
After talking about the break up, Schroeder said she didn’t want any advice because no one is in her relationship but Meagher and herself. She also said she just wants to vent and cry and to be listened to by her loved ones.
