    We were together 15 years,

    my entire adult life. No kids, no rings, but I loved him with my whole heart. He moved to another state and yet I still talk to him daily. I miss him so much but I know it was for the best. Everything reminds me of him. He will always be my best friend.

    I was dating this man for over 2 years. We immediately had lots of things in common, including music, school, careers, outlook on life. Generally compatible on a logical basis. We had a lot of fun together and he treated me so well. He's generous, thoughtful and supportive of my...

    It's Hit Me Harder Than I Expected

    Last night I broke things off with my boyfriend. He was sometimes unreliable and in the end I decided I didn't want to be second best in his life to that other woman Mary Jane. He would put bud ahead of me and although I could handle this short term, in a long term relationship I...

    It's a relationship through the internet.

    We talked a lot through fb and sk*pe, but I loved him. I broke him up because he was too childish, and because I'm afraid if I kept it going my insecurity problem will just keep rising. If that actually happens, I'd get broken over every little thing that happens between us...

    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...

    We Realized That It Was Silly To Date When He Doesn't Want To Get Married. To Anyone. Ever.

    We've been dating for two years. Lately the fact that I want to get married (someday) and he doesn't (ever) has been adding to other stress. We decided that working out our temporary issues is silly given the lack of compatible life goals. And I feel like I may actually wither up...

    He didn't know how to "communicate.

    Of cores it hurts because I did care about him. But I'm still okay. He treated me like crap, called me a ***** when he found out I relapsed. But honestly, I'm glad he is now in my past. Now I get to move forward.
