    I'm pretty sure it's finally here!

    I saw it coming for 6 months. We've tried to break up for a couple of weeks now but we always had fight to make it work. Now we're both exhausted and I think this is the end.

    I finally realized, my ex aint **** !

    He lied, cheated, then had the audacity to break up with me. WTF?! He's a 44 year old man who can't take responsibility for his actions. He's insecure because he's suffering from epilepsy and still renting a home at his age. Therefore, he plays with women to try to feel...

    I still miss my ex . It was a long distance

    relationship. He cheated, lied, and broke up with me after I called the other woman. He says he loves me but I'm too dangerous and will stop at nothing to find the truth... He's ignoring me now bc he says it's over. How do I get him back though? I guess the no contact rule?

    An hour ago I felt so numb and no I feel so heartbroken that my chest hurts and I feel like breaking down. I don't know what to do or how I'm supposed to feel about this. I just wish I had someone to talk to.
