    When Will He Get It?

    I broke up with my last bf November 2012. To this day, he still leaves me voicemail messages (I never answer) telling me he loves me and to come back to him - received 5 drunk messages last night again. Which part doesn't he understand? It's been a year! Move on! I'm not...

    Hi... I just broke up with my boyfriend of

    3 1/2 years and it's taking a toll on me, especially since I helped him get a job where I work and we broke up last week when he started his first day... It's so painful and hard and we try and avoid each other... I lost a lot of friends while we were dating and even though I...

    First Time Walking Away

    I dated a guy for eight months who I thought was the love of my life. Two months into my dating him, I discovered that he had NPD(narcissistic personality disorder). I think the process of finding this out on my own was so excruciatingly that I went into denial mode and pretended...

    I Dumped My Boyfriend

    I I loved him and still do love him. But I just couldn't give what he wants, what he needs. We have been going steady for almost a year and as far as I know, he has not been with anyone else. He is the only boyfriend I've ever had. I've always been afraid of boys and he was the...

    I've wanted to do it

    for so long now and I finally did. He was my first boyfriend. I gave a year of my life to him, but as much as I care about him, it's not fair on myself to put his happiness before mine. I know that there's more out there for me and I still want to enjoy my youth and live it...

    Still a little numb and dead inside.

    I just don't have any interest in looking for someone else. Thinking about it feels a little exciting, but communicating with new men I meet just feels flat. I guess I'm just not interested yet. I want to move on before I'm ready. The will is there, but the emotions aren't...

    And I feel absolutely amazing!

    ! I was with him for a long time, 4 and a half years to be exact, but it was a very abusive relationship and I was afraid to leave him, I thought that I was going to lose everything and my world would just crash and burn. I fell out of love with him a long time ago but I couldn't...

    Life After

    It has been about half a year since the break up with my "first love". I was devastated for three months, miserable for two, okay for one, and now I finally feel like myself again. I don't know how long it usually takes someone to "get over" someone else, but it took me half a...

    After a year and a half I broke up with him.

    I'm devastated. But he needs to realize what he has. And how he treats his gf. I love him and will never stop. But I was tired of being treated like crap and being on his time. He needs to change some things and I need time to think. So it was best. But I wanna be with him again...

    I guess we really weren't totally exclusive...it was more out convenience, but we said sexually we would stay exclusive and if we were going to be someone else we would tell each other so that we both could move on. Over a year of seeing him on and off and the first time I ever...

    I Can't Go Back

    I can't go back, I don't want to. The love I had for him is gone. Respect went out the window for him a long time ago. I knew what he was capable of and yet I still stayed in there, hoping he could change. Yet in the pit of dispair, dissapointment in the end. I was really weak...

    to do it. It wasn't planned or anything but I knew it was coming. Our relationship was going downhill and he was a completely different person than the guy I remembered and fell in love with. I don't know what caused him to change but the stress and hurt he put me through was to...

    It sounds silly to me to say "I broke up with my boyfriend".  After all, I'm 41, not 15 or 25.  I guess it would be more dignified to say I ended the relationship.  But I found EP by googling I broke up with my boyfriend, because I wanted to find other...

    I had to break up with my boyfriend this week.

    Breaking up sucks in general. Breaking up with someone you love has to be the ultimate heart-wrenching experience. No wonder people write songs about this stuff- I think the pain hurts about the same as when I found out my little cousin died. The anguish is so terrible I haven...

    I just broke up with my boyfriend

    after dating him for 9 months and I'm happy. Maybe it was the fact that he was mean to me. I realized I was strong and didn't deserve that. Now I'm happy. Am I wrong to feel that way?

    I think I made the worst mistake of my life.

    Three months ago, I let a few bad things dictate the shape of our relationship. He was sweet, sensitive, and he loved me so much. He told me I was beautiful. He could have been my soul mate and I let him go like it was nothing. He won't take me back and I feel so dead inside...

    September. We had been dating for seven years, since I was 18. We had a beautiful, quirky relationship and he taught me how to love. I am so lucky to have forged through my early twenties with him. G started medical school in 2012. It was so hard to keep our relationship healthy...
