Think about whether you are free from thoughts about this former love. I know there was no relationship like the one I created in my head but it kept growing and we kept getting more close during the 5 months. Relationships are always a happy experience. I think a year from now we will both be doing so much better that we'll probably wonder why we hadn't ended the relationship sooner. May be I am angry with myself for doing these things like pursuing him,giving him so much of attention. I was a whole and happy person before I found him by accident.
Stop waiting, hoping, and projecting. I hope you will honor my decision and not ask me to reconsider, as I have not arrived at it casually. No one in the past came close. I know its based on fear, fear of being lured in an undermining relationship of some kind. I have a want for this to be karma, that he is much more in love with her so is now in my position.

I recognized how fortunate I was for all that I had and seeing the strength and perseverance of people who were going hungry gave me strength to take care of myself. Letting go of someone you truly love is one of the most difficult things in the world. You are all truly a blessing. Just recently I met a guy who showered me with compliments. Are you free to be happy for him? Blaming yourself in a self-reproaching way is a futile waste of energy that only brings about negative emotions and delays the healing process. Because without you will not be able to accomplish something as challenging as getting past a lost love.
I do not want either one of us to go through this painful process twice because I truly believe that this is the best resolution for both of us. I tried even sending flowers and apologizing. I've had 4 long relationships, 3 loves, and this one was a whole different world. In hindsight, you may feel that there are things you could have done differently, but it is impossible to know what different outcomes could have been. I have read your posts here for quite a while and you seem like an extraordinarily kind, intelligent and loving person. Letting go of love is not easy but it is possible. Instead, choose to turn the pain into a gain.

Spending time alone and rediscovering who you are—your strengths, weakness and things you enjoy—can give you the confidence you need to take your time before beginning a new relationship. Emotions can overwhelm and even silence a person. Remind yourself of how bad you have felt when he ignores you. You may also choose to journal your feelings.

He responded with an apology saying that I was wonderful and that he never meant to hurt me but that he was afraid things were getting too serious. Was it because they fell out of love? You have to decide what you want and what resonates with you. Spend more time doing what you love. Why are you holding on to a relationship where you see no future in it? They can continue to bring you joy in those memories. In both cases I initially thought that I could change their minds by just being the awesome person that I am.
I think it would be so much easier to just move on if I had this answer, but it plagues my mind. I seem to hate myself now because I let myself get involved with this man knowing from the beginning that he would never be able to give me anything,as in love,affection or attention. It should be clear to both of us by now that we are fighting a losing battle. I feel you on the impatience. He fell out of love with me in the last month. Politely let your ex know you need your space and would prefer not to be in contact for the time being.
