    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...

    You found out the truth of

    who he is. Would've happened anyway, better sooner than later. You know who he is now. He didn't fight for you, that's who you want?? Think about your future babies, you want a protector and a provider. That's your job, to give them the best father possible. You would do...

    months because he went out to a night club and ended up cheating on my with a married woman.. Days after we broke up he begged for a second chance. I told him that I needed time to think about it and that I would get back to him. I took a few days and decided to forgive him.. He...

    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...

    Tonight Is the End.

    The last straw has been had. I need what she can't give. Tonight will be the night I tell her good-bye. Sounds easier than I know it'll be. We've been together almost 6 very trying months. Another hopeful relationship  bites the dust....It will probably take awhile to...

    I don't know what to do with myself.

    I want to sleep forever,to never wake up. I want to die,to be dead,not to feel. I want to travel back in time and never meet you. I want to wake up in a time where I no longer feel this pain. I want to be numb,dead. To not exist because I feel like without you I don't.

    I tried so hard to help him

    but he just keep pushing me away. I feel so bad for leaving him in the state that he is in, but I don't really have any more options. I am so tiered of crying over him. Its hard to make a relationship work when both people are so severely broken.

    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...

    The break-up was mutual,

    he needs time to figure things out and we might touch base in the future in terms of a relationship. He really wants us to remain friends, I can tell he feels bad, but I am pretty bitter over the whole thing. I keep picturing him with other people. I think I have a lot of...
