All Your Thoughts Become Negative Do you feel generally happy and secure about your relationship most of the time? Or do you find yourself drowning in pessimism, insecurity, sadness, and other negative thoughts?
My boyfriend and I dated for 3 years, and we broke up because we felt as if we had started drifting to being just friends in the last few months of our relationship. I did not want to break up, and even asked him a few weeks after NC if he wanted to try again. At the time he said 'no' and that 'not now didn't mean not never'.
I was an emotional wreck during the first month of our break up, but after that first month I started feeling a bit better and he started initiating us hanging out once again which was a bit painful since every time I saw him, I would be a little depressed that we weren't together, however I respected what he said and never mentioned getting back together I was actually starting to believe that we really never would be together.
I began to go out on dates with a few people during that second month, only to realize that made me miss him even more. To top it off, he saw me on a date a week ago with some random boy So basically last night was the birthday of a mutual friend of ours and we both went out with him. We ended up talking about everything, and he told me that he wanted to be with me and that we would both have to work on making sure that we did not take our relationship for granted this time.
We are now in the process of repairing the damage our 3 month separation caused us.
I have learned this much through my experience: You have to realize that if something is meant to be, then it will happen, you just have to sit back and be patient because taking matters into your own hands does not always end well. Also, let me say that there are so many good people out there, I actually began liking a lifetime friend of mine during the breakup and started thinking that once I got over my then ex I would possibly give it a shot with him.
But my boyfriend never left my mind and I don't know how long it would've taken to be with another person, but I know thar I and anyone else would get there eventually.
Thanks for reading if you did, and good luck to you 1 0 alycat I know you posted this a while ago, but I'm still going to share this with you We broke up 8 weeks ago. I did the NC thing and he only called once to see how I was doing--that was at the very beginning.
Then, nothing from either side. I have gone through hell for the last 8 weeks because even though I was the one that left him he said he didn't "feel it" and was acting all cold towards me and so on, I was the one that had loved the most I'm sure you get the picture. Anyway, last weekend I feel like crap and call up my friend to do my little crying session with her.
She tells me to stop crying over him because she had just seen his profile on Match. Well, my stomach turned and I get really anxious, and now check this out: I call him to tell him that we need to talk.
What was I thinking? But, I went with my heart on that one! He's very quiet while I'm talking, hears me out, then says he's really sorry.
7 Clear Signs You're Headed For A Long Distance Relationship Break Up
Says I was the one that left and didn't even want to talk to him one must be careful with the NC thing, that he had gone through hell too and did not know how to deal with things. That we all go through it in our own way and he just gave Match a try but all he could see was that nobody was like me That fact made him miss me even more, and meanwhile he was not allowed to call me and tell me what he felt.
I seemed very determined and terminal when we broke up that's 'cause I was fed up with the situation we had going on before.
Then again, he's always claimed it's hard for him to express his feelings. Anyway, he also said he was not talking to anyone or dating anybody, on the contrary, he had become quite the recluse He said he'd like to talk face to face and so we made plans.
Now forward to today when we see each other after almost 2 months. I had no expectations I put it all in the hands of God.
