A week ago II broke up with a guy that I was having a 4 month casual relationship with. Monday I decided to write a email to him explaining my side of the relationship and why I did the things that I did.
I didn't write it to accuse him of things although I did say in the letter that he never cared about me the way I cared about him and that I think he never even liked me and was just using me to get over his Ex. Although throughout the relationship he tell me that he liked me and treated me, sometimes, like I was his girlfriend.
Our last real conversation he told me he was still in love with her that we should stop "doing what we do."I don't him that we should just go our own way and that was that. I felt like that was real closure so I wrote the letter.
I know that some people do get some kind of reply but I don't know If I should feel like I should expect a reply back. I feel like after all the stuff did for him he should AT LEAST say something.
Anybody around here send a letter to their Ex and get a response back?
Also, the break up didn't have a fault. He said he didn't what the realstionship to contuite if I wanted more from him and I didn't want to continute with him if he was still in love with someone that didn't want him anymore (even he said what he was doing was stupid).
Most Helpful Guy
Wrote a letter to my ex before. We dated for 7 years for most of university and the start of graduate school.
Things ended - we moved on - but with loose strings and unresolved issues.
In short, we got into an argument and I broke up with her one day. We parted ways and only spoke to each other once, approximately 3 months after the breakup.
Many things were not said, not explained and not resolved. We never spoke to each other again.
However, a number of years later, the loose ends were still bothering me. I would have dreams about sitting down with her and explaining the reasons why we broke up. Even though it happened in my dreams, there was a great deal of satisfaction and sense of closure. I decided to write her a letter - even though it was about 3 years after the breakup.
The letter was not to get back together. It was to explain the faults that I made in the relationship, and that although we weren't together, I wished her a happy life with whomever she finds.
But... no response :)1
