    I had to break up with him.

    He was all wrong. I do miss the long phone conversations. He could make me laugh so hard. I wish he was still with me. He was 14 years older than me. My heart is broken to think we can't see each other or talk again. I miss him.

    He wasn't mean about it

    or anything, he actually said that he just wanted to stop hurting me. I know this break up is for the better but it happened a week before prom and I don't know why but it makes it feel twice as bad. During the last week, whenever we argued, he would never call, even when I...

    Not going to lie, I am starting to miss his

    good morning texts. I told myself I was too good for his bullshit and I am, but something in the back corner of my mind still misses him.

    Sigh :(

    It's been 2 days. He broke up with me because my parents didn't allow us to see each other. He also has depression issues and issues with being overly antisocial. He broke up with me because he wanted to be completely alone. He won't go find another because he wants to be...

    Well, this is it I guess.

    and we were friends for quite some time. He was my senior at college and just graduated, while I was a Freshman. And as a good friend, I would share all my problems, fears, insecurities and so on with him, and he, for the great person he is, would listen to everything patiently...

    for 5 years, and this past Friday he called me, and told me that he went out to a club and made out with a random girl. He told me he did it because he didn't have feelings for me anymore, that he'd "fallen out of love". It hurts so much to hear someone you love say that they...

    and he lives across the country from me. I broke up with him because I was uncomfortable with the situation and he seemed too into himself and I am scared of the unknowns in relationships, he thinks I'll never be ready for them and I wonder if that's true ...he's really hurt and...

    When a thing has served its purpose,

    it will go away. If you try to hold on to something that has already fulfilled its purpose in your life, you are going to hurt yourself. If holding on is disturbing your peace of mind, it makes sense to let go. Surrender all attachments to people and things that you have been...

    For four weeks he kept this from me, he told everyone but me. He made me live a lie for an entire month. He said "when I started dating you, it was because I wanted to feel the same way I did with my ex". Everything was about his ex. He brought me to his mom's house for the...
