    I Want To Sow My Wild Oats!

    I just agreed with my boyfriend (I guess he's still technically my boyfriend?) to take break for the next three months. But I don't think I need that much time to realize I don't want to get back together. At 27, I'm realizing I missed out on a lot of the fun that comes with...

    My girlfriend broke up with me today.

    To be honest I'm kind of relieved. I missed being single.

    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.

    Being newly single -- oh, who am I kidding, it ended about eight months ago and I kept a death grip on it til I moved to a different city -- seems to be an ongoing process. I find myself constantly sorting things out, wondering what was real and imaginary, if it was even love at...

    It happened yesterday.

    And it was mutual. And to be honest, I don't feel bad. For the past month or two, I hadn't felt the same about him, and after this whole long talk, we agreed to end it. He said that I can think things through, and he hopefully he can become my boyfriend, but I'm not sure about...

    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...
