Absolutely not. When you are with someone for a length of time, if you don't focus on keeping yourself 'you', spending time alone or with other people, etc., it's too easy to lose yourself. You don't realize it until you are not with that person anymore and you don't know what to do with yourself. I've been through this twice before, after a 4 year relationship and a 3 year relationship. It took me a long time to get back to 'me', and now that I have that, and I'm engaged, I'm trying my hardest to never let that happen again. Being your own person is an imortant part of being happy in a relationship, I think more people need to realize that but we're all constantly learning. Hopefully for me third time is the charm!
