    I just got out of a two year long relationship.

    I put an end to it. I loved him but it felt like he was always unsure of me. Don't get me wrong he was sweet, loving, caring and supportive at times. But on other occasions he was distant, cold and not quite feeling me. I'm just scared I'll regret my decision. But even though I...
