    Breakup=experience

    As the title says......we breakup bcause we experience the person and realize they don,t work for us. Although it causes pain we LEARN..... I think what is more painful is NEVER knowing or meeting the one person who was really meant for you. U can becme complacent or even content...

    I've always had a problem with depression

    and social anxiety disorder. This made me quite a strange person to meet or be around. She was the first and only person of the opposite sex to ever see through that, and show some sort of interest in me. Things escalated, very slowly, with a lot of hesitance and disbelief...

    Guess every break-up is painful in its own way.

    Right or wrong, easy or hard. There is always a deep sadness that comes from leaving someone you have loved.

    It Didn't Make Any Sense

    I was 16 years old (she was 15). The past four weeks had been complete bliss. I had never been so completely and absolutely happy in my whole life. Life seemed perfect. And it was just the start (I was certain) of *all* my dreams coming true. I had this ecstatic feeling of...

    The ***** broke up with me over a text saying

    that she only needed me to get her ex jealous so he would go back to dating her which he did! I thought we had a relationship going then she stabbed me in the heart. This is something that I will never forget.

    I've posted about it a few times.

    But the truth is, the thing that made me hold on to him so long was that I didn't forgive him or myself. Once I actually talked to him, like forgave him... It was okay. I'm okay.

    Ugh. From 15 to 20 I dated him.

    We were long distance. He broke up with me and everything went to hell. I dropped out of college. Moved to Dayton, danced, drank everyday. Then I met Damien (my fiancé) and everything went back to normal...actually it's the best. I'm pretty happy but sometimes I hurt.
