  • I broke up with the love of my life 30 years ago and I regret it every day. I was insecure and we were both young. We reconnected after twenty years and we both still have feelings for each other and are probably best friends. Had we met 5 years later, I think we would have stupidly happy together for the rest of our lives.

  • Yes, I broke up with the one true love of my life. I was afraid. Afraid of getting hurt, afraid of the direction week were going, and tired of his lack of recognition of our problems. I regretted it every day for a year and a half. We got back together, are engaged, and expecting. I now regret none of it because the time without him taught me I simply couldn't live without him

    • This sounds like fate to me 😍

    • I was lucky enough to find my one true love, no matter how far or how fast I ran, I always ended up running to him. Fate, luck, whatever you want to call it, I'm one lucky woman

  • Yes. I dumped a girlfriend who i was madly in love with. I felt, at the time, for my own mental health and self-respect that it was something I had to do, because she would not change a behavior I felt was easily fixable, yet, likely, she felt was a way to measure how much my feelings would override my self-respect, as a way of gaining power over me

    • So does this mean you regret it or no?

    • I don’t regret it, I regret that I couldn’t do whatever it took, to make, what I felt, shouldn’t be necessary to explain to her and then it became more or less, her wanting me to compromise my self respect, and a stand-off, which I wasn’t going to do. So, no, I don’t regret it

    • And, she was dealt her first dumping... so maybe I did her future boyfriends a favor, who knows... but if manipulation becomes more important than consideration of feelings, what is the point? But if she just fixed that one little thing, she would of been the woman of my dreams

  • My girl of 3 years broke up with me last year, because I was being lazy and had no job for a while. She severely regretted it after testing the waters and sleeping around.

    When she came crawling back 5 months later, she was in tears and her life was in pieces because she spent so long worrying about me that she didn't properly take care of herself.

    Her words were "I wish I could just move away and get a house with you, and live away from everybody else."

    I started sleeping with her again and took her on a couple dates but it was too late.

    The fact that she temporarily doubted me, and thought she could find better than our 3 years - that thought killed me.

    My trust decayed rapidly, and within a month I decided I wanted a relationship, but she was no longer a suitable fit. I needed to move on and find somebody to start fresh with.

    I'm now making good money and performing well at my current job. I know her decision to give me a break is one of the toughest decisions she has ever had to make, but it is also now one of her biggest regrets and it still lives and breathes with her. If she gave me another 6 months, she would have seen me find my calling, and how much my job changed my life. She would be happy - but a lack of patience hindered her, and time wasn't on her side.

    Now she will continue her search for somebody else with another scar on her heart. We both learnt a valuable lesson, it's just a shame that even though we were extremely compatible - her choice for a break irreparably destroyed my trust completely.

    Now she's just a distant memory that grows further and further the more I move on and focus on myself.

    We once woke up next to eachother, with love in our hearts. Now we're nothing to eachother.

    The only times I mention her now are times like this, where I can use my experience to educate others.

    • Your a better man then me cause if I had a partner do that to me after 3 years I would of just told her to keep fucking moving. I wouldn't give a toss about her at all she made her bed now she can sleep in it.

  • I have.
    At some point in the relationship, I voiced the problem about me being the only one making efforts and I said there was a need to have her contribute some efforts. 6 months later, nothing had changed. I loved her deeply. But it had to be done.

  • I gave up a dog for adoption because we keep getting separated, he had too many tragedies, I couldn't give him the life he deserved and my ex lost him at one time. It hurt to give him away but I felt he didn't deserve to suffer because my life was shit, does that count?

  • Yes because he was going on an amazing working holiday.
    He was only 20 and I was 23, I didn't want to hold him back from anything or anyone that he could experience.
    I was beside myself when he left.

  • I have, I discovered he was sneaking around meeting other women behind my back and sleeping with a couple of them, I loved him but I knew that I deserved better so I finished with him. Sometimes you have to listen to your head rather than your heart.

    • Would you he ok if he met other women behind your back but he didn't sleep with then

    • @dothejohnwall97 strip clubs are different from sleeping around. Strip clubs I can get on board with but sleeping with another girl when you're in a relationship shows a lack of respect for your girlfriend.

    • Like i said, i stopped sleeping around but i will not tell her it ever happened because then she would leave me

  • yes. coz he hurt me so bad. broke up with me and he had a new girlfriend and he even introduced me to her. then they broke up coz the girl cheated and he came back yo me crying and wants me back. I said no and told him we are better off as friends.
