    Okay.

    it's been two weeks now that we broke up.. The first week was the worst. I felt numb.. It hurts. After a year & five months I guess it's suppose to. I'm getting through it though, I could still smile and laugh.. It's when I'm alone is when I start to think and beat myself up...

    Wow.

    *sighs. Ok.., we broke up December 14. He didn't do anything horrific but I just felt the need to be happy and put myself first and couldn't do that in our relationship. Maybe that sounds weird... or even dumb. He was a great boyfriend and I love him to death, he's sweet and...

    We've been together almost four years

    and yesterday out of the blue, he said he wanted to leave or rather, wanted me to leave. We've been together a long time and I'm going through a lot right now. My life was going the right way but all of a sudden this has sent me spiralling. It just seems so cruel that he's...

    So Sad

    We are both in our early 30s. We were together for two years. He took me to a jewelry store and had my ring finger measured. Multiple times, he asked me what kind of wedding I wanted, who should be his best man, and talked about what song we would use for our first dance. We...

    Every Day Gets A Little Better

    I'm starting to feel a little better since the break up. I am truly starting to realize that things were not my fault. I can't wait when the day comes that I am completely over this. Emotionally I have my good days and bad days but I'm making progress.

    Broke Up About 3 Weeks Ago

    We just broke up after three months. I was a wreck for quite a while, but it really was for the best. He didn't treat me right at all. He broke my heart. I am happy to say that I'm completely over him. Completely. Breaking up stinks but it does get better. I am now with someone...

    He imposes his egocentric definition of love.

    No wonder I didn't feel anything for him to be straightforward.

    After about 18 months,

    I realised I don't love him anymore. Hid it for a bit, thinking it was just a phase. It wasn't. The days dragged on. I decided to tell him how I felt. We agreed to work on it. The feelings I felt before didn't come back. There was a lack of passion and desire and I didn't feel...
