mrnippon Posted November 14, 2004 Share Posted November 14, 2004 My girlfriend dumped me two weekends ago. Here is the story. She had moved back to the US in February after living in Japan for a while. When she left Japan she ended a long term relationship with a guy when she realized she could never marry him. I met her a few months later. Despite my reservations about being a rebound relationship, I started dating her. We had a great relationship - no fights, great conversations, really one of the best starts I had ever had. When I realized things were getting serious, I asked her if she still had feelings about her ex. She said no. She had stayed a with him a few months longer than she wanted to, to see if they could work things out. She felt certain that things were over. Then her close friend in Japan died, so she went back for the funeral. While she was there, he asked her to marry him and she said yes. When she first broke the news to me she said "I'm 34, I want to settle down and move on with my life." I asked her if I had miss-read something about our relationship. She said no, and that she was starting to fall in love with me. It's just that she had this relationship with him that was longer. She said that she had thought about giving the ring back, but she did not. In the past two weeks she has emailed a few times to say that she still thinks of me and the good times we had. It should be easy for me to get over her, but this one hurts. I really want close the door on her but it's hard. After all she did a really crappy thing to me. I guess it would be easier, if I thought this marriage thing would work out for her. Also before the Japan trip, I was really starting to think that she could be "the one." I'm 99 percent sure that it is over with this girl . But I still can't completely close the door. What should I do? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
