I Broke Up With My Boyfriend

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 568 People

    Sigh...I broke up. For real this time.

    .. I instigated it... I'm so over all the DRAMA surrounding this!! I'm so over it. It needed to happen and I need it to stick this time. No wavering. I need to really have faith in myself and in the fact that there's someone out there who is better for me.

    We just never hung out.

    He was a nice guy, but we didn't act like a couple. We kissed quickly and held hands, but we didn't go on dates and only saw each other for about an hour at school

    Today. After 5 long years of putting up with

    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 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...

    i broke up with him at a concert last night

    and he started crying his eyes out. i feel so bad for him. i should've never said anything. but i mean, i kind of had to because when he would hold my hand and kiss me and stuff, it would remind me of how i was sexually assaulted and what that person did to me

    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 finally did it. I still feel really numb,

    but strangely at peace. I was already mentally over it. Now the emotional rainstorm has begun. I know I am not in love with him anymore, but not because he is a bad person or did anything really wrong. We have been together for almost 3 years, I celebrated my 21st bday with him...

    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...

    And we are now just really great friends.

    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

    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?

    since I broke up with my ex boyfriend for being unfaithful. I feel like I'm over him and happy with having friends, socializing and being single. I really do love that part, my issue is- he just won't let me be. He'd call and follow me around at first. It got to a point when I...

    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.
