Most of us have that one, greatlovethat just didnt work out.
Maybe you just got out of that relationship and cant stop thinking about them, or it ended years ago but certain things like the faint scent of their cologne or perfume triggers their memory. Either way the end of a serious relationship can be hard to get over.
When do you know when its really over? When do you know its time to move on? And how do you move on?
I dated my ex for two years, and I can honestly say I was never more sure that someone was my soulmate. We had a bond that no one could break, and I just knew he was the one.
But with any great young love, things arent always as perfect as they appear. The honeymoon phase wears out, problems arise, trust issues come up and eventually you break up.
This month marks two years since myex and I have broken up, and it has taken me the entirety of those two years to realize I still lovehim.
A few months after we broke up, I did what every freshly single girl does. I cried my eyes out for a week and then I downloaded Tinder. It wasnt hard to find dates. In fact, for a while my friends labeled me a serial dater.
I was addicted to meeting new guys and judging them quietly in my head over dinner. However, there was a problem with every guy I went out with. None of them could keep my interest. They either hated cats, didnt like the sports I did or chewed their food so weirdly that they bugged me.
I never failed to find a flaw in every potential guy I dated after my ex. It was a continuous cycle of me telling myself I didnt love my ex anymore, meeting a guy, finding something wrong with him and then starting all over again.
Fast forward two years later and, huge surprise, Im still single.
