    So my gf broke up with me

    after being together for a year and a half. Every time I think about her I get angry, sad and nauseas. She meant the whole world to me. Any advice on how to get over this break up? I've really hit rock bottom.

    The fact that she can walk away from what we

    were building together is fine. She never HAD to love me; it was all her choice. She has every right to do it if she so pleases. Is it unfair to me? In a way, maybe, but as a whole it’s perfectly fine; I’m not fine with it, but it is fine. I can’t force her to stay, can...
