    Up until last month my partner

    and I had been together for four and a half years. It's really hard to adjust back to a life caring for only yourself after so many years of having someone by your side every day. I cry a lot now.

    She Just Walked Away

    A t first we would text almost all day, and at night, we would talk for five or six hours about anything that crossed our minds. I think I miss that the most. It didn't last very long, but I grew so close to her. After a few weeks it felt like I knew her for years. Then we met...

    Leaving my boyfriend wasn't an overnight

    decision. I'd been going backwards and forwards about it in my mind for a long time. It wasn't about not being in love anymore, it was more about figuring out who I was again. On my own. Nothing prepares you for becoming a single parent, and that's what weighed on my mind the...

    After being married 10 years I'm newly single.

    It's liberating and terrifying at the same time. What if I've forgotten how to just be me and not part of a couple?

    My boyfriend and I broke up about a month ago.

    He said numerous times that he felt trapped. I have to realize that he was unemotionally unavailable with limited capacity for commitment and I just ignored the red flags. I thought that because he said he loved me so much, he would be different with me. But you can’t have a...

    My ex bf had a problem detaching himself from

    people and patterns that he doesn't identify as barriers that kept him from his self growth and evolution. I find it heartbreaking to have fallen in love with this man's potential only to learn that he never had the serious intention to grow up at all.
