My girlfriend of four years and I have decided recently to go our separate ways. The decision was totally mutual and a result of some differences that have shown up in our personalities as a result of time.
She and I, though, have decided to stay friends because we have never had a problem with one another; we have many similar interests and get along well- we simply differ emotionally.
Still, I feel confused about the entire ordeal. It feels strange to have to end such a good relationship over something as small as a difference in emotional behavior.
aside: Before anyone accuses me of not trying: We tried to work this through and I did try to be more emotional/ affectionate but it just did not work. Both of us felt it too forced.
She deserves a great person; someone that can give her everything she wants.
Why do I feel okay with this breakup? Why do I know it is going to hurt when she finds someone new?
Strangely, she has posed that I should try to date her younger sister who is very similar to myself. Though I do find this very unlikely to happen, I do have strong feelings for her sister.

First, I don't think you guys should even stay friends both of you need to move on and find a new life, That way once she finds someone knew you are not there to see it. If both of you decided to break it, break it off completely, it's the healthier way.
About her sister I don't think its s good idea,1
