I did this. I dated my boyfriend for 8 years... we were engaged... and I ended it. I never really experienced dating or being with anyone else. I can tell you that it's been 3 years since we broke up and I haven't met anyone that was anything like my ex. It makes me realize what a great relationship we had. But at the same time, I never regret ending it. I realize now that I was constantly questioning our relationship because even though it was great, he just wasn't the one for me. I still haven't met anyone else that I'm crazy about but I'm hopeful I will in the future. I've never looked back.
