Why Does This Bother Me?

Mon Jan 08, 2007 11:43 pm

About two months ago my girlfriend, well ex obviously. Broke up. Which I accepted as there were things we decided were beyond our control. So she asked If we could be friends. I was not sure as then, and still now I have so many feelings for her. But I said yes. And everything was going fine until last night.

She came over to talk to me about my trip to New Orleans and about our situation. It was mostly a round of crying and saying it was going to be "all right" So then as she was leaving I stupidly asked if there was a chance we could be together again. I knew the answer but I had to ask. She told me no but then she kissed me. At which point I left as I was un comfortable. Later that night she sent me an email saying that she began dating an old ex while I was on vacation. I accept this as there is nothing I can do as we arent dating but last night was horrible for me. I couldn't sleep as every time id close my eyes Id think of her with him and I would be furious. Why does this bother me so much? I know it shouldn't but it does. What can I do?

Ron Livingston said it best in "Swingers" (of course, I can't remember the exact quote). Every day, it gets a little easier and a little less painful. Just gotta give it some time.

As much as it sucks, you may want to consider NOT seeing her for awhile (couple months maybe). Cause trying to do the whole friend thing right after breaking up doesn't make it any easier for either party to move on.

Anyway, good luck.

Well, first of all, don't cry about it. There are plenty of fish in the sea. Second of all, have some respect for her because she was telling you that it will be "all right".

[/humor]

Nothing really ends unless it ends badly. You need to call her and cuss her out. You know at this point that she won't have you again and she's damaged goods as far as you're concerned anyway since she got together with her ex while you were gone. She a disgusting tramp, a two-timing slut that can't even wait till the taillights of the car you are in are out of sight before she goes off shagging on someone else.

And don't let her give you any sob stories again. She can watch Lifetime or Oprah and get over that shit without having to bring you down with her.

What's to understand? She's a friggin' drama queen. It's not enough that she gets a fun new relationship, she also has to open the waterworks and keep you feeling miserable and "on the hook" as well. Uggh! I HATE it when people do that!

Cut off all contact with her, then just get over it with time. Just be confident, go out, and pick another girl off the girlfriend tree.

As a general rule, if there are no children in the relationship, stay away from her at least until You are sure You are over her. Then You can say "Hi!" if the two of you meet on the street, but don´t let her lay any sentimental burdens on You, like crying at Your shoulder, that´s what her girl-friends are for.

Meanwhile, go out and get down partying! There is no reason why You should sit at home all weekend yearning for something that never will be Yours. If You are around people there is less risk for You to start sobbing, and it will divert Your thoughts for a while. Find that Someone New, and make sure You have a good time while looking for Her.

Just because "she" wants to remain friends does not mean you have to, at least right now get some space between you and her. Do not remain friends in hopes you can win her back. Its over pack up and move on.

There is no good answer. Life is what you make of it and to get what you want you have to be decisive.

Grab what you want with both arms and embrace it. However, looking at your profile, you're between 16 and 20.

At that age you know nothing. Nothing.

You have seen nothing. You have not met the girl you will spend your life with yet.

Good luck and have confidence in yourself. It goes a long way.  Smile

True, true and true, but you have to remember that when we all first went thru this, it was horrible as hell. After a few heartbreak experiences, you take comfort in the fact that you know the pain will eventually go away. There is no need for him not to react the way most of us would have reacted when this happened to us.

Nothing really ends unless it ends badly. You need to call her and cuss her out. You know at this point that she won't have you again and she's damaged goods as far as you're concerned anyway since she got together with her ex while you were gone. She a disgusting tramp, a two-timing slut that can't even wait till the taillights of the car you are in are out of sight before she goes off shagging on someone else.

And don't let her give you any sob stories again. She can watch Lifetime or Oprah and get over that shit without having to bring you down with her.

Now, don't you feel much better? And you put that bitch in her place! She was never good enough for you and it's up to YOU to determine how you feel, you're not going to let her take control of your feelings!

C'mon Pope, give it up. This guy has shown he has brass balls and he's not pussywhipped! Give him some credit!

Dude, if you can't figure this out from your own posts, then you are beyond help. It's not a crime to have your heart broken (most of us have at one point). I know it hurts and I'm just giving you some good natured shit about it.

But what makes men different from women is that when stuff like this happens we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and get back into the game without having to resort to the bullshit little games that you've discussed above. You might as well gone to Ben & Jerry's and ordered a gallon of ice cream and eaten it in one sitting while watching Pretty Woman five times in a row.

As LHMARK said, all you've done is confirm that your girlfriend made the right choice. The best revenge is to live well.

Keep your head up and battle through this by taking the high road. It's better to have love and lost than to never have loved at all.

Actually, I discovered long ago that the path to my happiness is never found in other people's misery. If someone broke your heart all that means is that you really cared for them. Don't deny that, don't hide it. Accept it, embrace the pain - it lets you know you are alive - and move beyond it. It does get better.

A couple years ago I attended a former girlfriends wedding - someone whom I cared for very much at one time. Though she didn't dump me, we honestly just drifted apart over time, I was very happy to see her happy.

I'll admit that almost 15 years had passed from when we dated to when she got married, it was still nice to be there sharing a happy day in her life. Too often people play scortched earth, wanting to make everyone as miserable as they are - all you need to do is read some of the "I'm / My parents are getting divorced" threads on this forum to see that. People need to just step back and deal with there own pain instead of trying to impose it on others.
