Yes yes yes yes yes yes...
For me, I fell in love with a girl that I never got to be with. I loved her at a distance while she never returned any of the love. This torture went on for a year and I'm still thinking about her... three. years. later.
I'm scared, too. But from what I learned over the three years is to never underestimate time's ability to fade past feelings. I thought time wouldn't be able to contain my thoughts of her, but how arrogant was I. While I do still feel a liking to her, now, I at least feel like I'm actually okay.1

I broke up with my first love last year. He left me and I was devastated. However I'm now in another relationship and I don't ever think of my ex or miss him. I realize now he wasn't the right guy for me even if I thought at that time he was. I'm so much happier with my boyfriend and am thankful that it didn't work out with my ex. The thing is, I also thought I'd never get over him. I really didn't think it was possible. But it is. The memory fades with time but you need to be patient. Sometimes only when you meet someone else you are able to fully heal and move on.0
