Most Helpful Guy
I'll tell you my story. I also got out of a 2.5+ year relationship. There were some happy moment, but most of it involved insecurity, jealousy, and frankly just nonsense, which I attached to it being her first relationship. However we stayed together because we still have feelings for each other. I also considered proposing down the road, and I had purchased a ring in secret. Then she brought up the topic of breaking up because its getting too much. So I reluctantly agreed. Since then, I feel much better, no strings attached, I'm not confined and feel locked down, and like you said, peaceful. It doesn't mean I didn't love her. I did. But there were just bad stuff that now you know it's gone, it's feels really nice.
