  • My ex broke up with me.. After the initial shock, anger, heartbreak etc I relised he won't change for this new girl.. He will always be ignorant & simple. So now he's somebody else's problem now. His true colours shone through & wouldn't take him back if he was the last man on earth.. But it took months x


Most Helpful Guy

  • Well yeah.
    It was one of those really irrational situations where she just wasn't emotionally healthy for me, but I still chased the hope that it would work out because.. I don't know. Once again, I was stupid.

    So after that whole thing was done and over with, I felt free as a bird.

What Girls Said 2

  • Yes, but not until I was fully over the person and gained enough objectivity to realize that they actually weren't right for me in the first place. In my case, that took me over a year (for a three year relationship).

  • Yes!


What Guys Said 4

  • Yep. It was like escaping from prison. Now I can do whatever I want, whenever I want, save money and not have to stress over anything.

  • with my ex.. it was like I was coming out of a fog of a nightmare that was worse than anything Stephen king could come up with.

  • It has taken a couple weeks to feel sad but it was a bad relationship so.
