    I am recently single

    after a very long and ****** up relationship. I have no one to talk to but my mother and she's not the best person to confide in as she is very protective. I can't really talk to my friends either as the relationship forced me to distance myself from my friends in order to...

    Single Again After 17 Years

    the relationship kinda just dissolved over time.  No major problem, just lack of passion for each other at any level.  When I retired, she decided I was being selfish (I worked for 49 years) and wanted to move on.  I relaized that she was right and now I am excited...

    After many years, my wife left me.

    She wanted to pursue a new career and felt she just changed too much. Still hurts even a year later, but I'm starting to move on. Anyone with a similar experience want to chat and share advice, let me know.

    I have decided to "Date with Purpose" (Also

    known as Courting). No holding hands (unless engaged), no kissing, side hugs only, no sex, chaperoned dates, and parents are CC'd on all texts or messaging. The Duggar family have courted and became successful in love...me not so much. It is time to make a change!

    that it's for the best that you left me and we aren't together anymore, and I keep telling myself that you did mistreat me, you lied, you were deceiving, you made me upset a lot and that I deserve better... but my heart keeps reminding me of all the amazing qualities you have...

    My boyfriend and I broke up

    and he was such a mean person. He always put me down and told me that I was immature and he had someone else lined up if we ever broke up. I haven't eaten all day, not by choice. This is going to be hard to get over.

    My girlfriend of almost two years left me.

    She came home from work the other night and told me that she had been cheating on me. Then she packed her bags and left. Told me she'd be back for her furniture in a few days.

    I hate not being able to pick up the phone call

    or text him. Tell him I miss him and still love him. But I have to remember that he broke up with me. just cause I got tired of not spending time with him and asked to spend a lil time with him. At least I was wanting attention from him instead of cheating like most girls
