    I'm Struggling in my marriage right now.

    I've been in love with my ex since we were together 20 years ago. We have spent the weekend together before we both got married to other people. I haven't heard from him for about 5 years now. Miss him and find myself thinking about him all the time and contemplating a trip to...

    I have unfinished business

    and unresolved feeling with one of my ex's. Even though I'm in a relationship now, I've never been able to get closure and move on from him.

    I'm still in love with my ex.

    It's been almost 2 years since we broke up. The worst thing is he knows how I feel about him and that I have trouble refusing him anything, so he comes in and out of my life as he pleases. I know he's just using me but I feel powerless to stop it.

    If you painfully lose a valuable friend,

    do not rush out at once for a replacement. Such action prevents you from examining your heartache and breaking free of it.

    Sometimes.....

    I still miss him even after he did what he did. While the same time he was dating me he got another girl pregnant. It hurt me so much when I found out about it. He and I are still friends and I still have some feelings for him, but I did forgive him for what he did. I have...

    I believe once you love someone,

    you love them forever. YES I moved on from my ex's. But, is it wrong I still love them, miss them and wish I could be with them? I don't think so. Humans are meant to love and be loved, just like every animal. I just wonder if my ex's still think about me the way I think about...

    It's been years since we broke up.

    ..but we were engaged and it just didn't work out because of his infidelities and my insecurities. I'm in a relationship now but I'm not nearly as happy as I was with my ex. I can't seem to get him off my mind. No matter what happens between us I still love him. We barely keep in...

    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...

    Still In LOVE With Your EX ?

    that I don't care for my ex like I thought I did. The more I talk to her the more I remember what I didn't like about her. Which leads to: Do I just want to have sex with her? I think for a typical male that would just be a 'Yes, why would you think other wise?' type...
