I Am Going Through a Break-up

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 268 People

    This is gonna sound like child's play,

    but even though me and my ex bf were together very shortly, and seldom communicated, it hurts going back to being alone..even more alone. And I feel even more awful for hurting him.

    I got mad at my boyfriend last night

    for taking another woman to Vegas and sleeping in the same room with her for two nights. You'd think that would be enough to make me want to leave him, but I don't know, I just love him so much. I'm getting close to my limit, though. Which doesn't exactly matter, because I'm...

    3 years of a relationship down the drain.

    You know when you're with someone but there's that feeling inside that just makes you unsettled about the relationship? Don't get me wrong this guy loves me to death, he'd literally take a grenade for me (no, seriously, he would)! I couldn't quite put my finger on it but now...

    I was with him for ten years.

    My anxiety put a strain on our relationship the last few years. The last six months were the worst. I thought we were breaking up because I let my problems control me too much. Turns out there was a third party involved as well. His coworker. The only other chick he really knows...

    When I met her, I was hurled suddenly into

    He kicked me out of our own home,

    which is a break up. No contact. He's an emotional and verbal abuser. I don't know how to be ok without calling, texting and just checking his profiles and what's he doing.

    Not The Easiest Thing I've Ever Done.

    We were together for 9 months and he was my first serious relationship. We just broke up a couple of days ago, and it was partly my own fault. We aren't speaking right now which I guess makes it easier on both of us in some ways. I do miss him quite a bit, but I also feel that...
