    We've been breaking up pretty much

    since we got together 5 years ago... We haven't lived together for almost a year. He is the one who always decides he's "had enough" but today I told him that maybe it would be better if we didn't see each other for a while. He said "sure whatever you want. Ok." ..... I can't...

    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...

    Inside I am squirming,

    guts twisting in tiny little knots. Sharp pains cry from my heart. Overwhelmed by this cloud of doom and gloom eating away at my light. He stole my soul. Ripped me to shreds and delicately places me back together like his little doll. I sat on the shelf admired and adored until...

    4 weeks ago on Saturday I decided to bring up

    to my boyfriend of 2 1/2 years the fact that he likes to drink and because he is so young I was worried it would turn into alcoholism (I know many people with it, even in my family and it scares me) but when I brought it up it spiraled downward. He ended up putting us on a...

    It's been 3.5 weeks since he dumped me,

    and I'm feeling worse. I think everything is really sinking in. My ex and I will never get back together and probably never see each other again either. He dumped me on the phone after 3 years. He hung up on me mid-sentence and blocked my number and blocked me on Facebook. He...

    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?
