Too often I feel that I can never love anyone else the way I loved my ex, I even think that in the future we will have to end up together because no other relationship or experience had been so amazing and so impossible to come back from. I think in all of these years I have been love sick for her but after seeing her, I have feelings in my heart and gut and tears and lots of thoughts. It's just that I haven't yet found a way to live with it and just get on with my life. I will definitely keep you in my prayers. The problem with this is that if your only interaction with someone is on social media, then you are inevitably going to see the person through rose-colored glasses.
In December 2014, after a tumultuous, euphoric-when-it-was-good-but-miserable-when-it-was-bad, on-again-off-again romance, I ended it with the boy -- not because I no longer loved him, but because I was afraid of just how much I did. We understand each other so well, we both have atrocious family issues and have dealt with bullying and depression and lies, and all sorts of horrible things. It's simply not possible to terminate my friendship with them simply on this basis. Perhaps I am just believing what I want to be true. Your life is a series of one waiting game after the other: to the next text, call or by-chance reunion with the one who got away. But everyone pales in comparison to my ex. And in reality, analyzing their behavior is not going to help you get your ex back or move on.Next
Can you ever get over that ex? It sounds lame and cliche, but follow your heart. My ex and I go to the same uni; the other guy goes to another school a few hours away. Two years later and I realize that I still love my ex. She still ignored me but kept glancing over at me. I noticed that most if not all of the people on another thread I read were female. I hid my feelings as I saw them flirting right in front of me. Then one day, when I was going on about all the stuff I was able to accomplish that day with her one of my friends showed me some messages that she had said to her.
Oh, the irony of exes and old love and the sick humor it brings to life. When do you know it's time to move on? A few weeks later she Facebook messaged me for my email address and then emailed me asking if I would like to meet her for lunch. What ever happens, it is all beautiful, but a part of me says that this person was my soulmate. A guy like that is only going to respond to mind games. My ex and I were and are the love of each others lives and still love each other.Next
We have been married for 15 years and together for 17 and I know it's only been 4 months-I still have feelings for her even though she left me for another man. It's a love that you feel deep in your heart that remains after you've cared for someone so passionately. We had to do a long distance relationship thing for a bit since I was finishing school and he was trying to do training for the Marines. He wants to be my friend and I want to be his too, but… it would hurt to do so. I feel sad when I lose a friend, so it's understandable if a relationship ends and you still have feelings for them.Next
But you can't move forward when you keep looking back. I can only see myself alone now. I tested her for 30 min-an hour before I cut the conversation off. I really like this girl and I don't want to lose her, but I think that that's exactly what might happen eventually if I keep going on like this. And maybe every moment spent wishing my ex would find his way back to me is nothing more than a wasted moment I'll never get back. But as lovers of our exes, we have no choice but to overlook the miserable happiness our exes give us. I did not need that pain again.Next
It's okay to feel this way, and in fact, you should feel proud. In fact, research suggests that if you judge a feeling, it will grow stronger. It seems it is now she who fears me, but I will assuage those fears. Im not sure of the answer but that is now the reality of my life. All of a sudden we are texting each other and I cant' stop thinking about him. He became bitter about not getting the family farm, so turned his back on God. But as a whole, they represented something far more than just flaws in character; they were vices I fell back on.Next
Of course, many of the men I dated before him have so I feel blessed to attract decent men. Sometimes letting each other go on with your lives and with someone else is for the best. We exchanged angry words and told each other not to contact the other again. You just want to swim in that ocean of misery and pain, because somehow, somewhere deep within, the same misery shares its space with a tingle of happiness. This boy and me my ex were together 2,3 times and i loved him but it didnt work out however i still cared about him and my best friend dates him and i still like him and then she dumps him. I needed to go a long way to reach what I am today. I've convinced myself that if I search for my ex's flaws again in new people, I can kind of recreate him.Next
I'm always experiencing new things with my current girlfriend, she's just awesome, but there's still that nagging thought at the back of my head. Then about 8-9 month into the relationship she starts having problems with her parents getting a divorce, her grades slipping. In our relationship we talked a ton and stuff like that but we weren't really a romantic couple, and at school it was kind of just awkward because only 2 other kids knew. I know he has moved on, and it would seem he has no regrets. You dwell on your ex to distract yourself from a much deeper problem. I point out all his flaws, but I then just find myself praying for God to fix them. He is living his life the way he wants to and I must do the same.Next
