I Broke Up With My Boyfriend

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 522 People

    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

    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.

    We'd been together over a year. I was purely happy. I enjoyed him and needed someone like him in my life. He was thoughtful and understanding. However, circumstances made it hard for us to stay together. He's contacted me three times since breaking up. I think mostly...

    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...

    So... It's been just over a year

    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 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...

    So, I have posted here how I was dating a blind

    person and my experience with that. Well, we just broke up on Saturday. I finally decided that I was not ready for such a committed relationship, especially one where I had to take on a lot more responsibility. I just think that it was important for me to realize that my...

    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...

    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...

    First Time Walking Away

    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...

    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

    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

    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...

    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...

    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 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.

    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 don?t know what went wrong.

    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 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...

    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
