I don't want to sugar coat because id want you to give me honest advice too...I think she cares for you as a person but is not in love with you she emailed you that she knows she's making a mistake she says that because you must be kind to her& have a great heart BUT..when a woman tells you she isn't happy it most likely means she wants more, more adventure , attention, fun, more life coming from this relationship you guys must not do much spontaneous things & seems like she wants to seek if there is anything better out there.I respect her for admitting she's not happy & for not continuing this relationship because her unhappiness WILL make her cheat & just constantly argue.You tried & did your part , by you saying have a nice life was like a burden lifted off her shoulder she's over you.your 28 don't waste precious time&life.good luck!

You are acting too needy. Probably because this is the longest relationship you've had, and you desperately don't want to be single again.
But she seems adamant that it's over. In which case chasing her is the worst possible thing you could do, since it will only piss her off even more.
If you stand any chance to get her back (and it's only a tiny barely non-zero chance at that) it's by pulling back and going No-Contact.
