//Thank you, I really appreciate it. She was damaged also when I first met her. She was cheated on, and I was the first man to show her that not all men are savages. I gave her a man to trust and love. I was the first gentleman to her. Yet she still leaves. I don't understand why they ant look at all the positives the person has died for them.//

You'll probably never know why she did what she did or what went through her head. We tend to look for closure any way we can and often times we never truly get it from the betrayer types.

You work on you, some woman will love you someday but be prepared by working on yourself now, this woman has moved on.

Every time we are single it is an opportunity to improve ourselves. Folks who jump from relationship to relationship often hit a wall they never take a break and it's not always a good thing for them or their SOs.

I understand your frustration, I was the same with my ex, I tried to be patient and realize she was fragile BUT in the end I let me guard down and never realized how vulnerable I left myself.

I'm almost at 2 months like you and it does seem a little better, one day I will be happy again but I will always have the pain and hurt this caused me and I am OK with that...it's a reminder to stay motivated and love yourself.

They know what they did and they just don't care. Plain and simple.

Like others have said, she met this guy while she was emotionally checking out of the relationship with you. By the time she collected enough strength to finally make the move and leave you, she was already a 80% over you. That's why she's cold as ice. She had a headstart in healing while you hadn't even started.

So yes, feel betrayed. I would. Out of all the people in the world, you went out on a limb and trusted this girl with your heart in untrustworthy world like this and she took that for granted and handled it like it was nothing. When we lose people, a part of us disappears with them. You'll heal but you won't be put together the same way again. So don't let her off the hook so easily. To do so would deprive you of the remorse and anger you should be feeling and you're going to need that to help you accept what happened and heal from it.

I don't know what kind of environment created these types of personalities but I know the world would be a better place without them. They are reckless and stupid with their words and emotions.

From here on, all your energy should go to detaching yourself from her. Block her off of everything and go strict no contact. She's done.

Goodluck
yeah, they know what they did, and yeah it seems that they don't care. Especially that I cared for this woman through it all. I just can't comprehend how they can leave a guy who would do anything for them. I'm trying to let go. I'm trying to date again to get my mind off her.

Yeah this woman has completely moved on. I was beyond patient with her, and she would always compliment my patience. She took my patience for granted. A lot of guys don't have patience out there. I have grown stronger and better. I just wish she could see that, but then again she must not care about me if she can just leave and never look back.

I'm sorry you are experiencing this. Part of dating and entering into a relationship is understanding one another. Since you seem like a very responsible, mature person, it's possible she isn't as mature and if she is not honest with you about why she left and her expectations, then I understand moving on without her could be a blessing for you. Better learn about any emotional or relationship flaws now vs. if you married her. Love is a two way street, with honesty and understanding each other's expectations as cornerstones. I'll pray for your emotional healing and that another fulfilling relationship will come your way BUT be at peace and move slowly.

Apparently I lacked "initiative" she told me that, which doesn't sense for all that I have done for her.

Trying not to contact her

Update: So I've been trying not to contact her. Everyday I think about her. It has gotten a lot better the past 2 months. The last time I did contact her I said it would be the last time, but she never replied. I hate knowing how she probably doesn't care.

Good. That's hope right there. Keep at it.

Don't let your mind build her up into this beautiful princess you've lost. See it for what it is.

Still struggling

Do they ever comeback? Do they realize that they had a great guy who loved them and was loyal? I just feel like I won't find another great woman. I'm still struggling after 2 months. Time goes by slowly and every day I think about her. Can't comprehend how they just stop caring when I treated them right.

When should I give up

It's been 2 months since my ex girlfriend left me. We were together for 3 years. I was kind, sweet and loving to her. She left because she was burned out. Apparently I lacked drive. We were long distance and I constantly made trips to her, stayed with her for weeks, and did everything a man should do. I was loyal and I constantly reminded her how much I loved her. The first month I try to get her back and she rejects me. Then the second month I try and she rejects me again. I've been in no contact for the past 2 weeks and im getting the urge to try again, but I know it will probably be the same outcome. I just can't let go of her. She was perfect in so many ways to me with minimal flaws.

Hi, bro. I was in your position 2 years ago (and somehow again nowsday). I tried to got back with my ex and I made it for about 6 months. It consumes me like hell. Worst semester of my life. Someday she was completly douche to me using an account that I allowed her to use to reach out other guy. I discoverd that said to her that I didn't think I should do this anymore (did not tell why, cause she does what she want) and she was a bigger douche than before. So, after 2 months she tell me she was missing me and we got back together for almost 4 months, then she broke up again for the same reasons, cause she changed nothing to make our relationship work.
I don't know the circumstances of your break up, but if she was aggressive or something like that, don't do it to yourself. Doesn't matter how much you improve yourself, she will be the same. The best you can do right now is go full NC, invest in yourself. If you think that is a hard thing to do, look for a therapy it will help you a lot.
There's nothing you can do right now, cause she doesn't want to be with you right now. And, man, don't put her on the pedestal. She IS NOT perfect... Neither you, neither me, neither anyone in the world... We all have issues, we all have problems, we all have shadows to deal with... And that's ok... We only need to accept the other, but we need to see our partners as real people, not an idealistic person. Take her off off the pedestal and improve yourself... It's the best you can do right now. Think that way:
- You improve yourself and she not return = You move on from her
- You improve yourself and she return = You will be a greater person then you were
- You don't improve yourself and she not return = You will be in this misery forever
- You don't improve yourself and she return = You will be need and cringe, you will be in the same spot and you have no chance to make everything work

Focus on you... You can only change yourself.

Like altrest said, seek therapy. Sometimes our support group isn't enough. Trust me. Live life, pursuit a passion, be skillful, and you'll see what the universe brings you.

Stay NC. She hasn't changed her mind the past two times, so she isn't going to now.

If you don't reach out to her again, I have a feeling she will reach out to you but it won't be because she realized what she lost. That's only in the movies. From my own experiences and many others' , a round 2 is typically motivated by selfish reasons like loneliness or fear to be alone.

In regards to healing, 2 months is nothing in the grand scheme of things OP. It's really just the beginning. You're going to be up and down for a long time.
I'm going through it myself. This isn't the kind of state we'd want to talk to our exes in anyway. We want to clear this crap and get back to who we used the be. It may take several months of processing through all the pain you are feeling before you finally give up hope and start moving on. You'll know you're getting better when you start catching yourself noticing other girls.

No, they don't come back when they were the ones to break up. Contrary to all of that nonsense about how no contact makes people magically want you back, it's not true. When a woman ends it, she's pretty much done with you.

She knows you loved her and all of that. She's not deaf or stupid, but she doesn't care. You are no longer somebody she wants to spend her life with. It's a rejection of you, and something you have to come to terms with. It's a real blow to your ego, but it's life. Contacting her would do nothing but reduce your value to her as you look like a needy loser. The best thing to do is maintain your dignity and never contact her again, or even respond to contact from her should she reach out. Even if she decided to recycle you, she would dump you again. It's important to understand this so you don't get hurt even worse down the road.
