    I was in a relationship three years ago.

    It was my first relationship, and as you know about firsts, it was so important to me. He ended up breaking my heart by hooking up with someone at a party. In other words, he cheated. He told me he cheated after we broke up (which means he also lied while we were together). Now...

    I Can't Move On And It Hurts

    I can't move on. He's on my mind 24/7. I need to move on though because he said some hurtful things to me. He wasn't sensitive to my feelings and he would blame me for things that he himself was doing. We had a big issue with opposite sex friends. He didn't want me having males...

    It's so hard trying not to think about him. It's been a year so why am I still hurting? He was my first kiss and everything but he rejected me. I still have never had a boyfriend. I don't think I ever will. I had very little self esteem to begin with but now it's gone. I sleep...

    He just won't stop trying to contact me.

    But then again, I get kind if happy when he does, even though it always ends badly. He texted me last night and we fought all night until he just said "goodnight" and who knows when we'll speak next. This is so difficult, I wish we could both just move on and be happy.

    that cold brutal truth is getting even clearer. He's willing to let us go. While keeping this distance. I'm missing him. All i can hope for now is to be burdened with some over the top workload and seek distraction.
