I Still Love My Ex

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,563 People

    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.

    We went out for two years.

    She has haunted my thoughts every day for 18 years. We email each other and have separate lives. We even met up last year for lunch. I just wish I could reset the clock and fix the mistakes I made that broke our hearts. I still love you.

    We broke up only a little

    while ago over a girl his age,but I can't stop thinking about him. He's not the kind of guy I can just let go all of the sudden. I'm empty and I have no idea what to do..

    I'm in love with an ex I dated

    for half a year and even though I broke up with him I'm the one that misses him and can't get him out of my mind. When I talk with some new, it usually doesn't work out because I blur out that I'm still attached to my ex. Sometimes I think he's gonna change but I wouldn't know...

    I Hate Days Like These....

    These South Florida rainy days....I use to love them, even before her. We would meet around lunch time, I would look forward to a rainy day. We would just sit in my truck & talk (& sometimes a little more than just talk.....)....she would lay across the seat, across me. I could...

    So I had this ex, we met about last April

    and he was just the nicest guy in the world to me. I didn't know his name, I just knew him by his nickname. About 2 days after we met, my friend told me someone was gonna ask me out. I kinda had a hunch it was gonna be him, and I was right. Months passed, we were happy. Then we...

    Why Do I Still Care

    I know I shouldn't care at all and there are plenty of other fish in the sea but none of them are like him. I can't believe I fell for all of his lies. Why did he have to say he loved me when he didn't . If he really truly did he would still care about me now. I know this is...

    I was with my ex for nearly 3 years.

    We had a very tumultuous relationship. She told me that she had slept with an ex of hers, 14 months into our relationship and I finished with her. She cried and begged me to give her another chance as she loved me so much. I relented and went back to her. I truly wish that I...

    It has been a week since we broke up

    and I wish I could erase him from my memories so that it wouldn't hurt anymore. Continuing to see his name pop up on my phone everyday gives me hope, but I need to let him go, because he doesn't want me. No one does.

    I broke up with my ex about 6 months ago.

    . We've been through so much.. People tell me he's not worth it, that I can do better and that I'm wasting my time on something that will never happen. But I don't see it like that. Yes, he has hurt me. He does ignore me and threatened me. But I think of just the good stuff. I'd...

    because we were "growing apart" So in other words, he doesn't love me anymore. It is so difficult to get over him now, because I still love him. I'd planned my life out with him.. I kinda wish he would have done something awful to make me hate him. That way I wouldn't have to...

    when I hear his name, look at him, see something that reminds me of him, a song that makes me think of him. His face pops up no matter what I'm doing. He gave me so much to remember but now he's gone. We broke up 9 months ago but I can't get over him. I got into one relationship...

    He has a new gf and she hates me. I know he still has feelings for me I can tell every time he talks to me. He was my first kiss so he still means a lot to me. I'm just afraid to tell him that I still love him cuz I don't know how he'll react.

    She broke up with me,

    and I still see her in school. I've only got a month and half left so that's good. The bad part is that she has an identical twin! So I get the horrible pleasure of being reminded of her twice as often!
