I Miss My Ex

    We were best friends

    before things got serious. We were incredibly close, to the point where we'd speak everyday for most of the day. We broke up a couple of months ago, and I just feel so lonely. It's not really the fact that I'm not in the relationship, but it's more towards the fact that I don't...

    Long story short: we went out in 8th grade,

    broke up after 6 months (we knew each other for 2 years). We broke up on really really bad terms. Now we are seniors. He's not always on my mind, but I'll think about him from time to time. But I don't know why tonight I had the urge to see his profile(s). I seem like such a...

    Not Romantically, But...

    I was with my ex-boyfriend for almost 3 years. We were broken up for about 3 months before he killed himself. This happened last month. When his brother called me with the news, I was totally inconsolable. I miss him so much. I wanted us to stay close and stay good friends. We...

    My mom doesn't understand

    that I honestly need to talk to him. Yeah I know we broke up and I can't handle being friends with him but honestly I need him to know how much he actually hurt me. I'm still in love with him, but it wasn't meant to be I guess. He doesn't understand what pain he put me through...

    We were each others longest relationship.

    We rented our first apartment together. We had our entire lives planned out. In a brief moment of insecurities and jealousy, our relationship ended. I honestly don't see how I'm going to get over him. We work together for God's sake. I can't move on when he keeps bringing up all...

    I met my bf in a conference

    and we fell deeply in love.. After 4 months of a deep and intense relationship, he confessed that he is unhappily married with 2 kids. I was shocked, but it was already too late. I was madly in love. 2 months later, he just told me that he can't go on. He didn't say much...

    "Everyone has to move on with their life.

    You have to move on, its over. He's not coming back" is what everyone says to people trying to get over a breakup. I believe once you truly love someone, they never leave your heart. I have moved on from my past experiences, but i still miss my ex's. Not all of them, just the...

    You broke my heart and took me for granted. You showed me the most amazing joy and the most crippling pain. You raised me up and you knocked me down... again, and again, and again. And I let you. Heck, I *made* you. I presented my heart, no matter what you did, time and time...

    I hadn't seen him in months. For the past couple months, we only text and the relationship was becoming more and more distant. I knew it was inevitable. So, I text him a long message about how I was unhappy. He said, "I can't get through this without crying." I replied, "Then...

    Truth is you are a good person.

    We were together for 8 years, and I know most of that time you were no longer in love with me. You still cared enough to stay, because you knew I would fall apart by myself. I left because I couldn't pretend anymore. You accepted it gratefully for the same reason. I'm alone now...
