Dixie was beginning to find out more and more that she just didn’t fit into Elvis’s new life. They still cared for each other, and Dixie spent a lot of time with Gladys Presley when Elvis was away on tour. But Dixie and Elvis fought a lot, mostly about what Dixie was doing when Elvis was away.

Dixie Locke’s Junior Prom : May 6, 1955

Elvis was very possessive, and he wanted Dixie to sit at home and wait for him instead of going to the drugstore to listen to some music with her friends. Dixie suspected that Elvis dated other girls, and she was right, although there was no one else who was steady or serious with Elvis at this time but Dixie. They had broken up a few times, and in July 1955, they broke up for good.
