    I just couldn't help myself. I told her that I still didn't move on but I am really trying. She's an ocean away so it does hurt me. I told her that if I'm bothering her, she can totally delete and block me and she ignored that reply. So she still wants to keep in touch? Idk, she...

    How does someone move on?

    Are there certain things that need to be done first? With problems in relationships do you need an apology? Do you need the other person to hear you out?
