    It's been a few weeks, but only a few days since the real and ultimately final deal. After 3 years of living together, it happened so fast I became physically dizzy for a while. I have now been through 3 different hotel rooms in the span of that time, this one is just a mirror...

    Time For Fun

    I've been in a strenuous relationship for the past 3 years with a bloke who I though was my soul mate but things couldn't have been further from the truth. For two years I did everything he told me to, I completely changed from being a fiery red-head to a quiet, bumbling idiot...

    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.

    Hope Your Happy

    You will never ever find another woman like me and you lost me. I was the best thing that came into your life and you blew it with bullshit. So good luck to you and the person that can deal with you like I did

    Even though ending our relationship was never a

    decision I thought I'd be the one to make, i actually felt fine once I'd made it. We aren't right for each other, and i do feel like it's best to just let each other move on now. However, even though it's only been about 12 hours, i do have regrets already. It's strange to...
