An 8 Year Relationship..

I just broke up with my boyfriend of 8 years. We lived together for over 7 1/2 years. Now I am sleeping on the couch, waiting to find a place.

We broke up over the fact that neither of us were happy in the relationship. We both felt like we were just Friends but had the title of boyfriend and girlfriend. We always had dinner together but we never sat next to each other when watching movies. We always hung out with our friends over hanging out with each other. Most of all, we never had sex in the past year. I am one of those people who need to have sex. It's a part of the relationship.

Now that I know it's actually over, we are getting along so much better. We now understand each other. It's weird but both of us are actually happier.

kids definitely make breaking off a relationship a lot harder...at that time, and then you have the fact that you still have to deal with that other person because of the kid. like i said, fortunately, he and i still get along....but i'm sure that could change at any given moment (like if i start to seriously see someone else lol)

I am glad you can too! I am happy that we didn't have any kids. We were thinking about it but nothing really came of it.

i know that feeling a bit. i think my ex and i get along better now than we did during the last leg of our relationship (which ended over 2.5yrs ago). We have a daughter together, so we still have to communicate...i'm just glad we can still get along for that reason.
