    How People Move On To Fast

    I recently left a 6 year relationship a little over a month ago. I am still very much in love with him but I had to leave because there was verbal abuse involved. I left because I had to protect my children from growing up that way. He begged me for the last month to come back...

    Stupid

    I feel so stupid. I broke up with my girlfriend for no reason at all. Just like everything else in my life I just worked myself up to it, without actually having a good reason to do it. We had a really good relationship. Yes there were some problems but we worked through them...

    I Told Him I Need A Break But Truth Is I Need A Break Up

    I love him. So much. I know he loves me, but it's not enough. I always felt there's something missing and I realized that it is that I don't trust him. We can't really continue a relationship without trust. That's why I'm letting him go. This is so hard though, I wanna move on. I...

    For The Best...

    We'd been going out together for about 9 months or so, known each other for longer... To be honest, the relationship has been petering out for the past 2 or 3 months. The passion just died, so we sat down a couple of weeks ago and called time on things... It was very much a...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    He imposes his egocentric definition of love.

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

    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...

    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.
