From dating for 5 years to breaking up and trying to be friends, I knew we both probably dont belong together. I realized it when she said "Sometimes I wish I wasn't in love with you." She broke up with me because I couldn't get my goals together in the time we were together. Found out from her she is dating a guy who seems like a nice guy and is successful in his endeavors. We dated for 5 years and she wanted friends with benefits after 3 years to basically not feel bad for dating other people while we dated. She said I was amazing but couldn't support her financially and meet the goals I said I would like getting my career on track. How did she move on so quickly after only 1 month of the official break up?
She said she might even move to his town because she can't do long distance relationship anymore. Even though he farther away, and this only after 3 months.
It is true I am in love with her deeply but know that we aren't compatible. So what can I do to stop feeling so pathetic and make the change necessary to better myself? How did she just move on?
They are officially a couple now, and the guy doesn't trust me. I purposely stopped doing anything because I'm respecting the boundaries.
Life I guess just teaches lessons you need to know for the future. Thank you for all your support everyone!
