I Forgot How Much It Can Hurt

Everyone tells me to just let it go, but I feel like he was my last chance.  I'm not young anymore and I feel so sad that it didn't work out.  He wasn't mean or anything.  He just stopped calling.  My last boyfriend before him was emotionally brutalizing and cheated on me.  I don't want him to be the last romance in my life.  I want something good, and now it looks like that will never happen.

I hope you found true love I believe there is someone out there for each of us adn they come when the time is right.

I felt like that too after my last boyfriend, and I took 8 years to think about my lot in life and to comtemplate becoming a spinster. Then I got fed up and decided that I was not born to be alone. Actually no-one is. I met someone and we have been together now for a year.<br />

I don’t know your reasons for feeling this, and I am not going to give you a handful of cliches. Just know that you deserve more and realise that your happiness does not lie in the hands of another.

I'm sorry to hear it didn't work out... <br />

Keep on living your life as well and wholly as you can, I say... and life will find its way of repaying you handsomely.<br />

At least that's the theory. It's hard when you can't help but miss them as an involuntary reflex. But that's hardly a reason to neglect everything else that's worthwhile, right?
