For me, I've had three breakups, and all but one were smooth. The other... Not so much. That one was a long distance that ended in her not being able to overcome bipolar disorder.. but uh I do t really like talking about that so here's the others., the other two were both mutually agreed things weren't working romantically, but we actually stayed great friends, and she is, to this day, the best and closest friend I've ever had.(I dated her twice, I asked her out the first time, she asked me the second) but turns out she likes girls a little more than guys, oof. personally I encourage people to try and end a relationship peacefully and maturely, but sometimes there's just too much drama involved..
So, do you feel long distance relationships do not work? Thats great! To be dating the same person twice and still remaining best friends.
Bipolar disorder is a mental illness and is not something you overcome.
That's true, but in a way not. Overcoming doesn't have to be curing it, if can be managing it, coping with it, or finding the proper routes to let out the emotions it forces on you. She was trying to find support, but her uncle and Aunt would never let her go to any group meets more than once, and were extremely sheltering/cotrolling. To overcome something does not mean to kill it, but rather to not be beaten down by it.
I found out I was gay. My "girlfriend" at the time probably noticed and she "broke up" with me. The whole relationship was more like a close friendship, so we both weren't really sad. I'm still pretty good friends with her and she knows I'm gay, so all is well
Oh.. how did she "notice" that you are gay? Why didn't you come out?
I didn't exactly know that I was gay at the time, so I just supposed that's what love felt like. We weren't really physically involved, so that was probably a hint for her
Oh I see...So I guess you are committed to a guy now?
Not yet, but I am looking for a relationship at the moment
All the best
Thank you :)
me and my ex were really happy but as the months went by, we both started feeling not the same for each other. We still cared for one another, but didn’t love each other like that anymore. We were laying down and started talking about it and we were both in tears because we didn’t understand these emotions, this led to sex and after wards we cuddled and promised we still care for each other. He went home and we’ve been friends since :)
So the break was mutual and you guys have been friends ever since! Thats great. Because I feel its very difficult to be stay just friends with someone you loved and had wonderful memories...
yes I agree. It took us months to start hanging out normal again. But we got through it, we’ve known each other since pre k till now. So we couldn’t throw those 15 years away
Thats great. But has (or will) this break up affect you in going for a future relationship?
definitely not, this break up made me be more open what’s out there. Right now, taking my time.
How did the break up affect your day to day routine?
I didn’t feel like doing anything for the first week. Was really upset but got over it in a month
She texted me when I was visiting my parents in another state that I shouldn't come back.
And what did you text back? If any
I tried to get her to change her mind because I still wanted to be together with her.
What reason did she give?
None. She had broken up with me a week before and we reconciled. Said then that she felt overwhelmed. I later found out that her online friends, especially one who had just got done cheating on her fiance, had sabotaged our relationship. My ex later admitted she hadn't told me what she was unhappy about. She does suffer from mental illness, so that may have played a role as well.
I am sorry to hear that
