I broke up with my girlfriend and it was the biggest mistake of my life in Getting Back Together Posted August 3, 2016 Tough to fix a broken relationship. You dumped her and broke her trust. It seems like she knows she can get you back anytime so shes put you up on a shelf while she sees what else is out there. I wouldnt wait around for her. Id tell her that while you do love her and realized your mistake, you cant sit around waiting for her to make up her mind. Then if she doesnt want to try you shut the door and move on.
