    I feel that it's getting easier

    and easier getting over this as the weeks go by. I focus my energy on other things. His name pops into my head sometimes but I just shake my head and try to think of other things. When I see his name or people mention him I still get a feeling. The true test is when I see him...

    Late nights are the worst

    Someone told me we were perfect

    After she moved out, my relationship with him

    escalated and I got to know him so much better. We have a comfortable playful love now. She knows we are together and it seems she still doesn't want to let go, but he's very deep into what we have together and I am very grateful to be loved by him.

    or think of him it hurts less and less. Hopefully one day all the pain will be gone.
