    and today it hurts, just

    for this moment. I'd been doing just fine not talking to him but today he made an effort to look for me just to let me know he's on a date. from numbness to pain. He's trying so hard to break me and today he etched in a bit. gotta get my superwoman armour on. can't afford to...

    I initiated the break up.

    And it has been real hard. Real real hard to deal with. But I know I have to do it. If I don't, it'll be at the expense of my sanity and I can't let that happen to myself. There are days where I can't function fully. And days where I'm okay with thjngs. It's draining for...

    All relationships end at some point.

    Some end with death after 50 years of happy marriage, and some end after a few months, weeks, days or even hours. They will all end; that’s just a fact. But we don’t want to face that. We have this belief that we not only have the ability but some kind of responsibility to...

    Breaks up suck!! But in the end it all makes

    you stronger and it builds you up tougher, and makes you realize what you don't want in the next relationship with someone else, so stand tall because you can conquer that wall of fear loneliness ... Sadness whatever it is your facing that person isn't worth anymore of your...

    My boyfriend of 8 months basically told me

    that he doesn't want to bother with me anymore. We got in fights a lot lately but I still loved him so much, I just thought he would try for me. I guess he didn't care that much. I've been crying non-stop since. I want to send him a million messages but I can't bother, I know...

    So my boyfriend of 8 months broke up with me

    out of nowhere yesterday. Previous to this, we'd had almost a perfect relationship, we hardly argued and laughed together all the time. Then he went away on a training course, we had our first argument over the phone and it seems like he's completely changed. He ignored me for 4...

    I'm going through a break up

    and it's the worst ever. Not the first time as I was in a on/off relationship of 5 years. What's hurting me is that my ex is behaving like I was such a terrible person. We broke up over a stupid argument and I tried fixing things and he wasn't having it. It wasn't over cheating...

    for you. It's beating too hard and too slow and the thought of not having you in my life is tearing me apart. I realize now that maybe we weren't meant to be together. I know you'll never see this, but God knows I'd take back everything I said if I could have you back. Maybe...

    He did it yesterday. We dated

    for 4 months, then I broke up with him. I regretted it so I started talking to him again & he admitted he wanted me back. We tried again just before Christmas, and I thought things were going so much better. We get along on a spiritual level & I thought we had similar morals...

    We met in a bar. He was a musician

    We completely ended it about 3 weeks ago,

    or more. I am so numb that I even ignored the date and everything related, so I can't give an exact measure of time. Truly, it feels like this relationship was over a very long time ago maybe months or over a year, who knows. I think the worst thing you could do to another...

    After 3 years this relationship is coming to an

    end. I think it was obvious it won't work out from the beginning. She was 15 years older than me. I don't believe age matters, however she was very insecure about it. We had our ups and downs in this relationship, however it came to a point in which it is toxic for both of us. I...

    I've broken up with my fiancee (we have child

    Well, it's all over. After a month

    and a half of torture by telling me it could work out and then telling me it wouldn't, he finally ended things. I am relieved because now I have a final answer, but still devastated and hurt. I want to stop feeling this pain.
