hopelost2 Posted September 4, 2016 Share Posted September 4, 2016 Hi all, Yesterday, my girlfriend and I broke up after 7 1/2 years. The cause was essentially too much fighting which stemmed from something which happened about 2 years into our relationship involving another guy. Just something that I could not forget and caused me to have animosity towards her from time to time. This caused me to really have trust issues with her. Over the course of the next 5 1/2 years, this topic has caused so much conflict between us, and subsequently we would just make up and move on again. However, yesterday after another fight (has been going on for a few days now), was a different story. Where we are now is that we've broken up, I think for good, because I can't see the logic in what she stated she needs. Stated that she can't live together anymore and wants to move out. Mind you, we've been living together for 5 1/2 years now. She says that the only way she can see our relationship issues possibly getting resolved is if we live separately and go to counseling. After living together for so long, it's hard for me to see this as a step forward towards resolution. I essentially told her that I don't agree with this solution. Rather, I suggested that we continue to live together and work this out, including counseling. But she is set on moving out thinks her idea is the only way for this to possibly work. With no guarantee that things would even work after counseling and living apart, what's the use? Should I accept what she is suggesting? My mind is a bit scattered right now, so apologies if this seems a little choppy. Just wanted to post this asap to maybe gain some clarity. Thank you for reading. Link to comment
