I met someone weeks after getting out of a long term relationship
7 Valid Reasons To End A Relationship, Even If You Love Your Partner
Thanks for chat yesterday. I am recently as in a couple of weeks out of a four-year relationship. I've been having a hard time dealing with the fact that the relationship is over as I am still in love with him, but I also realize that it had become an unhealthy cycle for us both and there was just no hope. In between bouts of crying and watching Lifetime movies with my faithful sidekicks Ben and Jerry, I have been going out with some friends, and last weekend met a guy. He was hysterically funny, attractive, and just a super nice person — in short, we clicked immediately and I felt a connection I hadn't felt in awhile. I found myself forgetting about my ex in the time we spent talking, and found myself flirting and enjoying his company. Sidenote: I was honest about the fact that I am just out of a long-term relationship, but I didn't elaborate on how hard it's been for me.
Getting back to dating after a long-term relationship
Long-term relationships are hardest to let go of, and when its time to put an end to it, it's usually devastating - for one or both of the couple. It's hard to lose not only the person you have loved, and love, but also a part of yourself at the same time and it hurts because you've invested a lot of time and emotion in the relationship, only to let it go. Break-ups hit hard, especially after the reality of it sinks in. For some, it feels as if their entire world has ended.
Breaking up with someone can be a really simple decision to make - maybe they cheat on you , or you cheat on them, and that's just it. You call time on it because well, game over, obviously. But deciding to break up can also be really bloody difficult sometimes. Especially if they haven't done anything particularly awful, and it's more that you're just not per cent happy.
