Before I answer your question, I just want to give some advice based on my own personal experiences. Being single will suck at times, but there is a sense of peace that comes with it if you approach it the right way. Use this time to assess yourself. What are some flaws in you that became noticeable or problematic during the relationship? What are some goals or dreams of yours that the previous relationship got in the way of? You should really ask yourself these questions as you move on to this new phase in your life. There's so much you can do when you are single and you don't need another human being to fulfill you. Now, to answer your question, I have not forgotten what being in a relationship feels like, although I've been single for over a year now. I gave up on dating because I'm tired of the dishonesty I was dealing with. Also, I'm not at a point in my life where I'm even dateable. I have A LOT of things to work on before I even consider pursuing a woman again. But, I can honestly say that I am at peace now. I'm just focusing on getting my degree, improving at my job, and helping my mother out.
Damn des! Sorry this Sitch hit you so close to the holidays and in general. can't believe I come back and your dude still being a douche. I know nothing can truly be said to fix your current heartbreak state. But I do think you're an awesome person who deserves better than that douche, buuuut I also know the heart wants what it wants sadly. It's why I'm fighting for a girl I possibly will never have again lol.
But anyway hang tough, hopefully your mate get ish together start meeting you halfway, some day soon.

You still seem young and don't look at it as a closed book but just another chapter. A closed chapter, and there will be many more. Being single isn't all that bad. It's scary at first but its liberating. You just worry about yourself now, you do what you want without a second opinion. Cry if you have to, but don't cry for too long. Now is the time to focus on yourself. It won't be bad.
Stages in life come and go as they please with various obstacles and life lessons that are placed for us to face. Each relationship I've been through has molded me and taught me something different as each person whom I was with as well as where I was in life during the time I'd be dating a particular person would give me various feelings. When I was single for close to 2 years, I thought I had forgotten how to love someone or thought I lost the "it factor" in attacking a good guy, but being single during that time only helped me realize the independent person I can be when not tied down.
Hope you can find peace though this breakup Desii and in time see what you've gained as a person.
