I went out with this girl 3 years ago and we broke up because she had family issues to deal with. After the breakup, I stopped talking to her. I was hurt but every time I see her I want he back. My question is, should I forget about my feelings for her or should I tell her how I feel? I am not over her even though she is with someone new.
Pining for an Ex
Dear Pining for an Ex,
I have been there and I am sorry that she ended the relationship. But, the thing is, she ended the relationship. No matter what the reason, she decided to let you go and move on. Sure, family comes first. She had to handle her families needs. You also didn’t help matters by being upset instead of understanding her plight. Regardless, she made her decision, as did you. She decided to end things and you decided to stop communicating with her and became angry. The anger is understandable but it seems you have burned that bridge.
She has also moved on. She is in a new relationship, and why wouldn’t she be? It has been 3 years since you were together.
My suggestion is to move on. Your relationship with her is no longer. You don’t even have a friendship. As difficult as it is, let her live her life and live yours without her, as you have been doing for the past 3 years. If you do wish to contact her to tell her how you feel, because you cannot move on without closure, then send her an email or ask her to meet you for coffee. That way you can release your feelings and, hopefully, live your life without regrets or longing.
Love strongly and wisely,
