    I'm aching all the way down to my bones.

    I don't understand how love can just vanish like this for him.

    The picture is us. She's on the left,

    I'm on the right. We were talking about getting back together just 2 weeks ago. Now she has a new girlfriend that's skinnier and prettier than me. I didn't think this would hurt so much. But it does. Because I miss her. I thought I just missed her as a friend, but this...

    There are times when he is forgotten,

    almost like he never happened. I go along with my day and with my boyfriend and I am happy. And then, all it takes is one song, or one movie, or one place, and I am suddenly remembering that, yes, I AM happy. But not as happy as I was with him. I have written him letters...

    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...

    Previous ex, Thank you

    for shaping me into who I am today. During our time apart [break up], I learned to love and accept myself. I have also learned to not over analyze and over think things. I'm happier with who I am today. Though I'm still upset about the break up, I'm glad we broke up. Because I...

    To sum up the situation...we were non exclusively dating for a few months, and then I stopped seeing him bc I was ready for something serious and he wasn't. I told him that it would be best if we stopped contact and he respected my choice. He never contacted me over the last 6...

    "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...
