I am 17 years old and when I was 15 I fell in love with an older man. Now that I broke things off last year ( I was 16 ) I feel almost heartless. I tried dating again but I didn't feel anything. The only thing that works for me is a no strings attached type of thing. I still get really upset because I feel empty and I miss the feeling of being in love. I'm not sure if I made a mistake for cutting things off with the older guy things where going well. But I wasn't ready to give up my free teenage years. It wasn't until too late that I realize that I'm not like a normal teenager. Will I ever be satisfied? As in, can I love someone my age after being with someone more mature? Will I be happy at any point in highschool ( 2 years left ) or college? Will I ever not be heartless?
