Hi guys.

I need help.

And before you guys go "ah, not another one", please read on.

Me and my girl firend broke up after 2 years (would have been exactly 2 years on 7 april).

Her exuse is that she wants to meet other people ad go out and all that stuff. Oh yeah, she doesnt know if I'm the right one!! For crying out loud!!! What the hell is that? After 2 years and now just suddenly?

I know that she loves/loved me but still.

I just dont get it. why did she suddenly start having these doubts?

Well, her parents decideded to get devorced a month ago, an her aunts marriage is falling apart as well. Could that perhaps have trigered this?

Al I know is that I would do anything o get her back.


*edit* thanks for listening

Start dating immediatly.
Tape yourself in the act of "love" with your new girlfriend.
Have your room mate accidently mail it to her.
Find out, and set out on a wild and crazy road trip to get to your girlfriends and intercept the package.
Realize you really love your new girl friend, and resolve your relationship with your ex nicely.
End of story.

There isn't much you can do. Talk to her. Better yet, listen to her. If she wants to break up, she will do. If she has some doubts now and regrets them later, make sure you don't move more than one continent away just in case she wants to come over and talk in the future.

Oh... and don't take advice from guys on the internet who never had continuous 2-year relationships in the first place :rolleyes:

Time heals all wounds.

Try not to do anything you'd regret later like begging to have her back. There are plenty of great gals out there to meet, and you'll get over this eventually.

Here's a 5 step plan to recovery:

1) Evaluate your current position. Is she the only girl you will every be able to get?
2) Evaluate your surroundings. Could this be a new lease on life? There are many fish in the sea.
3) REALLY evaluate your previous relationship. Was she good to you? Was there any hint of "the next level"? Had you made future plans at all?
4) Drink.
5) Drink.

If 1-3 fails to lead you to any true conclusion that one girl will not ruin your life and that there are others, please repeat steps 4 and 5 until that conclusion becomes apparent.

Just give it time and follow your gut/heart. Once again, don't rush anything, give it some time and follow your gut/heart. After having time to breathe and think about it, your emotions will hopefully tell you what the answer is.

I've been with the same girl for over 3 years. I want to rail everyone in sight. :D

Hey man, I think we have all been there or in a similar situation at some point in our lives. I don't pretend to have some special advice regarding these situations, but I do hope that you aren't feeling so bad that the rest of your life suffers. I personally run when I'm sad or upset, maybe a good idea.

I don't think it is such a good idea to post personal stuff on the internet like this, because there are a lot of insensitive people that will help you feel worse.

I just got out of a simliar situation man, all I can say is if they want space, give it to them, but call them once in a while for small talk, see how they're doing. From that point try to at least be friends, maybe something will rematerialze after time, maybe not. The point is if you care about eachother you owe it to yourselves to keep in eachothers lives in some form or another. Don't forget steps 4 and 5 of cheez's guide to breakups, those are the most important ;)

Credit where credit's due. That was ober, not me. My steps are something like
1.Drink
2.Drink
3.Drink
4.Drink
5.Cry

Also, don't feel you need to call her. I haven't spoken to my last girlfriend in months, and to be honest, I like it better this way. She can stay with her 35 year old boyfriend with two kids, as far as I'm concerned. Just as long as they stay away from me.

I think drinking is probably the worst way to handle these situations. I really hope you guys are joking. I drink a lot but doing so when you are very sad is a bad idea.

Govtcheez
04-06-2005, 11:37 AM
Eh, it depends on the situation. There's no problem with going out drinking with your friends to exorcise some demons. It's when you continue to drink yourself retarded because you're depressed that it's a problem.

and yeah, I didn't mean you had to call her, but it's just nice if you want to carry on a friendship after all that time.

My solution: Stay home and program or play video games. In the long run, it's cheaper. It all starts out as love love love and ends as what can I get from this guy to make him pay.

Not always, but has been my experience.

One divorce is enough for me. So now my life is drama free and I want to keep it that way.

First thing you should do:

I just dont get it. why did she suddenly start having these doubts?

Understand that.
Then you can make a decision, or understand you canīt make one. But donīt stay lost and guessing, that wont be good.

I commend you for having an original opinion in a country that merely forces one to get married. The un-married male that lives like that forever is the "creapy weirdo" -- forget that ........ man, I commend you.

Thanks for the support guys.

As far as the drinking is concerned...me and my friends has aleady made an appointment with "bacghus" (we call him the god of alcahol.) So I'm gonna drink pretty hard on friday, just to get rid of all the emotions and stuff.

She told me that she would be visiting one of her friends on tuesday night, just for a chat and so. But hte next morning when I phoned up the friend (sort of my friend as well) and asked how my ex is doing, she said she had no idea and tht my ex was at the cricket with another oak.

So I phoned my ex and confronted her about it. She said she did not want to hurt me more if she told me the truth. And I said she's hurting me more by lying to me.

And also she promised me that she did not leave me for someone else.

But anyway, I phoned her last night, and asked her to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. She said that there really is not someone else (I'm not so sure about that anymore) but she still wants to be friends and all that stuff.

She's lying.

Also, I'm serious. Stop talking to her. You may want to be friends again eventually, but if you keep checking up on her and everything, it's only going to make things harder on you ("omg, she's having fun without me!") and make you look like a stalker. You can be her friend eventually, but now is not the time.

Break contact with the chic. Stop letting it bother you, be a man, suck it up, ...and go have fun without her.

Or you can sit around and cry over spilled milk and let it totally ruin your day. It's obvious you've already given her too much time in your life, so why give her any more thought time and why give her one more day? Move on.

Just remember that if it has tits or wheels it's bound to give you problems at some point down the road.

Exactly.... talking with her is only going to make you jealous, whether she is lying or not. I went through that, and I basically just stopped talking to her and even ignored her when she tried to contact me a few months later.

ditto ober, i had to completely cut ober from my life in the last two months to get over her. It's been rough but its better than if i was speaking to her, try to not even think bout her.

Freudian slips are awesome.

I'm trying to cut everybody out of my life right now because I won't see a lot of them again for quite some time, and this involves several girls. Not as bad as going for a breakup after a two year relationship though.

Awe man people, don't go and tell him she's lying when you don't even know her.

One of the major problems with most (note I said most) breakups is that if you're the one who was perfectly happy and content, you tend to equate "I was happy and all was well" with "We were happy, so some other outside force must have caused it to happen". It's human nature and ego, and quite common. Persnal ego makes you believe that if it weren't an outside force causing the breakup, then the only alternative is that they found some fault in you personally (a notion harder to accept), which is flawed logic itself but hard to see through when your emotions run rampant. Let's face it, breakups hurt.

And if you think about it... suppose she did tell you what she went out and did. Suppose she just went out by herself to socialize, or suppose she went out with casual friends, or just went out with the girls, or even just went out and caught a movie. Would you have taken it at face value as the truth? Or would you have checked up on her, as (let's face it) you did? In my experience, no matter what she does, you will find it difficult to accept that she can go on in life without you. And for a while you will resent that, it's natural. Perhaps she did just tell you a little white lie, trying to spare you some misery. She probably knows you better than most, and can predict how you will react.

One of the more difficult breakups I've had myself, it was explained to me by her that she wasn't feeling happy in her life, and while she was contemplating what she wanted to do with her life she had to ask herself what she needed to do and have to make it happen. And unfortunately I was in the way of making it happen (even though I was convinced I could and would support her in anything she wanted to do). A serious blow to the ego I'll tell ya. However today I'm casually dating, haven't landed in any serious relationships yet, and I find I have more respect for her than most people I know simply for her candor. And we talk as good friends now (however it took well over a year before that happened) and there are no regrets on my part, nor resentments.

Please don't take this as criticism, as that is not the intent, however I feel the need to be a little blunt when I say... After she broke up with you, it's really none of your business what she's doing and you really have no right to check up on her. And she's under no obligation to keep you informed as to her activities.

I know it hurts, and it really sucks to feel the way you do. As others here have already said, the best advice is to move on. It seems difficult to see or believe it possible now, but eventually you will get over it, and eventually you will meet somebody else.

I thought maybe I should add another point in here about my worst breakup... the next major relationship I landed in ended up being the love of my life and my current wife (ooh lookie... it ryhmes).

Her next major relationship (which I've been updated on by my sister-in-law because they went to the same college) ended up with her being pregnant to a complete ............... There was some rumors that they either went off and had an abortion or they gave the baby up for adoption... I don't know for sure and I'm not about to perputrate a rumor. I believe they are now married and live about 3 states away... both of them working very hard just to pay off school debt. I haven't talked to her since about 6 months after the breakup when I decided enough was enough. I don't ever plan to again. It's just weird how situations can turn out.

Well, she was lying about at least one part; she wasn't where she said she would be when he asked. I agree that it wasn't his business where she was, though.

Remember that BEER is your FREIND.

I am moving on now. Im not going to sit in a corner waiting for her to take me back or something.

That is her decision not mine so....

my thre day cure plan:

tonight: its back to the gym, go drinking and get totaly plastered.
saturday: sleep off the hangover, go to gym, go drinking
sunday: watch wrestling (WWE), go out for a few drinks and play pool.


after this I should be pretty much cured.

besides, I havent gymed so good in years, This week was just the bomb in the gym.

I don't know her. But I know me. And I would be lying for sure.

What could have been her plans ?

- Go out and find a quick f***
- Go out and find Mr. Right, get married, raise children, buy a house and all of that before saturday morning
- Go out alone and enjoy it
- Go out alone and cry
- Go out with her girlie friends and get drunk

Why tell you about it ? You aren't (just) friends (yet). I would not have told you the truth and I don't think you would have either :rolleyes:


Anyway, you have too much spare time on your hands right now to worry about her. And I think gym and beverages are a perfect mix :D

... dude your first mistake is asking the internet to help... unless all you want is sympathy or to get flamed...

if you love her... make it work... or be a pussy and give up like the rest of these internet homo's in denial.... nobody can really help you with that decision when they dont even know you or her...

and from what you said in the first post, it looks to me like you ........ed something up or shes a .........., and this all being pure speculation the thing with her family just made her realize that you suck... but i dont know... you probably do.
