Have you ever broke things off with a person you were dating because you thought this person you had a strong connection with was not on same level as far as feelings. You finally see that side and realize they care because of the way he or she reacted after you told him/her you are dating someone else. Then they tell you good luck and you start to miss that person because you realize they may really move on and it starts to hit you. Mind you...you both had very strong chemistry and connection and you are dating someone else because you think you have a connection with the new him/her. Did you ever stop thinking of that person you let go and hurt? What is your story?

A relatively large reason that my ex left me was that I loved her more than she loved herself... She was my first love, and I think I may have been hers as well. When I heard she was dating someone else (~3 or 4 months later) I was actually happy - I had closure and thought that she had finally overcome her internal barriers. We had "chemistry", but honestly, looking back, I think the biggest reason she dated me was that I pursued her. For a long time. I'm really not sure why/how we stayed together for as long as we did (5mo (not actually that long, I know)).
We haven't talked at all in the past 1.5yrs since she broke with me, so I really have no idea what she's feeling, but I'm willing to bet she is happier now than when we were together. I feel like I was holding her back from her dreams, so letting go was a necessary process when the time came... if far more long and drawn out than I wanted... I don't miss her anymore, but I do miss having someone special to be with. I think I may have lost sight of the point of answering your question.. sorry.0
