Recently I just broke up with my bf of 1 year and almost 2 months. Here is how it all started...about 2 weeks ago, he told me that he wasn't sure if he really loved me anymore or if it was just that things changed and we needed to work through them or what..he just wasn't happy anymore, and I don't think I really was either, I just liked to think that I was. So, anyway, 2 weeks went by and I made myself think that things were getting better, but they really weren't. So a couple days ago we were driving in the car and he hadn't been acting normal all day, so I asked him what was up, he told me that he just thought that we grew apart. Now, this is something really hard to take...we love eachothers company, but we just don't have that feeling of love there anymore. How are we supposed to be friends. Just to get an idea of how things were I will write the letter he wrote me as sorta a final thing. It's a tear jerker... "Hey, I'll give this to you to read while I'm reading your note. I just want you to always remember that the times we had will be with me forever and they were some of the best times in my life. It'll be a while before we can finally settle in as friends instead of a couple and things are going to have to change and we'll be spending less time togeather, but it doesn't mean that we can't tell eachother things and trust eachother anymore. If you ever have a problem I want to be given a chance to help out with it. We'll be able to take what we've learned in this relationship withus forever and it will help us so much in life. We'll always look back and remember us as people that were happy in the moment and didn't care about much else. I hope that when you grow up you'll be able to look back and remember us and maybe crack a smile for us, because I know I'll be able to. But it sure isn't over with our friendship though, we have alto of memories to mke yet! I hope we can make alot more still and that when I do get old and reminesce about us I'll still think of you as the Nikki I'll never forget." So anyways, I just am wondering how to deal with this...I think that I am so afraid that we will loose our friendship that I am afraid to be myself and express my feelings anymore. I am very thankful that there is a forum like this to get other ppls outlooks on things. I know that when we were togeather, it felt better than anything...and the hardest thing to comprehend is that breaking apart feels right also. If you have any imput on how so keep from getting so down, I could use some. Thanks!
