blah, female misc. Ended an almost 7 year relationship this weekend. Cliff notes: - got together in college the summer before my senior year - was awesome for a while - did the real long distance thing while he finished his senior year (he's a year younger) - did the 60 mile long distance thing for 2 years - lived together for 2 years - then I got into grad school in PA and he had no interest in moving - kind of knew it was over then, but dragged it out for another year even though I knew he wanted to settle down, have kids, not move around whenever I got a cool job or the mood struck me, etc. I know I'm the one who chose to break things off, but **** it still feels like someone's stabbing me in the chest/throat repeatedly. And I know it will be the best thing for both of us in the long run, but it feels really bad right now. I was OK for about a day, till I heard one too many breakup songs on the radio, and saw him change his facebook relationship status. Then his mom posted a mildly passive aggressive comment about wishing she could protect her children from pain :-/. I just can't see the light at the end of the tunnel right now, and I feel terrible...and I hope he realizes I feel pain too, even though I made the move to end things. Feeling old and lonely :-/. Hope I can find some people to relate.
