Well, my boyfriend and I are more or less broken up after six months. Right now I feel lonely and empty, but I know it was the best thing to do.

In a nutshell, while I do love him, he has some growing-up to do. And, he needs to do it on his own. I canít do it for him. And I think that if we had stayed together like we were it would have just always been the same, even if he was telling me he was working on it.

I do love him. Heís the only one who ever made me feel this way. Heís the only one who ever made feel like I could someday settle down and start a family.

But after our weekend trip together the past weekend, everything started adding up for me. Weíd been together six months, and thatís the time I guess when itís natural to start looking beyond just a casual dating relationship. And when I looked beyond, I realized it couldnít work the way things were.

I guess Iíve kind of sunk a lot into him. He was my running partner. Now Iím thinking of running a half marathon next Sunday, and nobody will be at the finish line for me.

But itíll only hurt for a little while. It was the right thing to do. Maybe heíll change and never want to be back with me. But thatís a risk Iíll have to takeÖbecause if we keep our relationship the way it was, I know heís not going to change.

    I know how you feel. My ex-boyfriend and I were together for nearly 2 years. I was mad for him. We were living together, he made me feel as though we were lifelong, and I saw us getting married and having kids 3-4 years later. I was crushed, but I found solace in working out and being around the people I love. It's tough and it SUCKS but you'll be so much stronger for it. And when it's right, you'll meet the person who fits you like a glove. emoticon emoticon
