    I broke up with my boyfriend about a month ago

    and he was the best thing that ever happened to me and I wish I could tell him that but I'm to scared to tell him.

    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 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...

    Okay. So I get that I'm only in high school

    and I don't know anything. But I just found the experience project and I really need to vent to someone. We've only been dating for 3 months, but it still hurts. I broke up with him the day before our 3 month anniversary. I really liked him, but I knew it was the right thing to...

    Ugh, I broke up with my boyfriend a couple

    weeks ago but I still can't get over why I even went out with him!!! I barley talked to him before he asked me out and I didn't really know him, so we had nothing to talk about. I'm not allowed to date so what we basically did was walk around at school holding hands in awkward...

    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...

    It had to be done. The reasons aren't important

    right now. I was putting it off because I know I would miss talking to him on the phone, sharing our day with each other. When I told him I didn't want to see him again, He didn't try to change my mind, didn't mention loving me. Wished me a good life and that he wouldn't...

    the lies and the cheating, and more lies, I was finally over it. Today, I gathered up the courage to face him and say "It's just not working out." He took me for granted, betrayed me, ruined my trust, and today, I let him know that he was never, ever going to get that trust back...

    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 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

    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 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...
