I broke up with my boyfriend of one year yesterday. It ultimately boiled down to the fact that he loves travelling more than me which is fine but not good enough for me.
We were doing long distance for the last few months too. He was upset but he understood my decision.
The problem I'm having now is the fact that I don't feel upset or heartbroken? I was initially upset when I made the decision myself but now I just don't feel anything. Other than some anxiety in my stomach, that's all I'm feeling. I don't feel the need to cry or anything. I guess I'm just sort of down more than anything else.
I'm obviously not over it in any way seeing as I'm asking this question but I'm just wondering is this normal? I'm genuinely even beginning to wonder did I ever have real feelings for him at all.

Normal... as it should be... always look forward, never backward.1

It's normal for your situation. Sounds like you mentally and emotionally sort of prepared for this to happen. You are more upset at the idea that something didn't work out, but deep down you knew he was not the guy for you at this time. Doesn't mean you didn't have feelings for him, but maybe y'all didn't get as close as you wanted to. Don't dwell on it more than necessary. You'll be okay.1
