I know a lot of people who go through break ups but then recover quickly and get into a new relationship. But my brother has been single for almost 5 years and said he will never be able to get over his ex and still has strong feelings for her. She was his first love and they dated for three years. She broke up with him to be with her ex. He told me he is planning on being single for the rest of his life. Did anyone ever feel that way? I find it really odd. He also said he will never be able to love someone as much as he loved her.
