    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...

    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...

    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...

    because the majority of you readers won't care but I broke up with my boyfriend...whom I had lost my viginity to. I know it was for the best because he was cheating on me! I feel it's a weight lifted of my shoulders because I can finally go out to parties again and just have fun...

    Silly.....

    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 didn't let his pleas get to me this time,

    I just looked at him and told him "it's over, we're done." And oh my gosh it feels like it didn't even happen

    Not Really Upset That Its Over...i Wonder Why?

    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...

    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...

    I finally did it. Finally found the right time

    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...

    I just broke up with my boyfriend of seven

    years, I feel so relieved. There was no love or communication. Now I feel like the whole world has opened up and I am free with a ticket to find real love. Am i crazy, shouldn't I feel sad?

    I broke up with him today.

    Of course I'm hurt, but I was constantly accused of being a liar, a manipulator, a deceiver, and a cheater. I am not any of those things. He was always so paranoid and suspicious. I know I can be a bit of a spaz, but Jesus. He's one of those people who has a lot of problems, but...

    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 just broke up with my boyfriend of 6 months

    and i'm not sure how i feel. I love him but he lied a lot and talked to other girls, so i'm a little relieved. But these are normal feelings i guess, it's just i don't know how to deal with losing him even though it was my choice.

    I had to break up with my boyfriend this week.

    He was so insecure and you didn't trust me all even though I repeatedly proved my loyalty to him. He hacked into all of my social media accounts and began to analyze every photo and comment that was ever made on them to make it seem that I was cheating on him. When I got tired...

    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...

    I broke up with my boyfriend of two years. I was his first real love. So you can imagine what he's going through. He was easy too dependent on me emotionally. He was extremely insecure, and he made me his entire life. He made me his life. I was everything to him, as he has very...

    I feel like we're both so much more happier being just friends than being together cos we can just talk to each other better and it's not as confusing and it also is just a lot more comfortable. XxxX

    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...

    We were dating for 7 months. Every thing started beautifully. He's one of the best things that ever happened in my life. And the feeling was mutual. But three and a half months later, after the honeymoon phase was over, suddenly he said he doesn?t love me anymore and said he's...

    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?

    Last Wednesday my boyfriend broke up with me.
