BlueMan79 Posted August 24, 2017 Share Posted August 24, 2017 Hi guys, So a few days ago I posted a thread on here, which some of you fantastic people really helped with me the problem. Basically I'd become obsessed with someone that I'd been talking with through online dating, and it was taking some getting over when it went wrong. I don't want to speak too soon, but I feel (hopefully), that I'm making slow progress on moving on from it all. It's still difficult and pretty painful but I'm hopeful that it'll ease in time. Anyway, the point of this thread is this. Around November time I split up with my ex. It'd been coming for a long time, and if anything I was pretty relieved when it happened as it was a nightmare of a relationship in truth. I won't go into details over it. But anyway, I moved back home with my parents, started to enjoy life again and felt happier than I'd felt for a long time. Then in around April, I kind of started to think well, I'm 27. Not really going anywhere in life. Just working, coming home, playing a few video games, watching TV and occasionally seeing friends at the weekend. So that's when I started to think that's I should really start trying to find somebody. So I tried the whole online dating thing and in the most part it's been pretty brutal. I'm determined now to have a break from it, and hopefully take back the happiness I had before I started. I know that the previous life before the online dating wasn't ideal, far from it. But I was so much happier before I started all of this. I've come out of the other side as empty-handed as I was going into it, and a hell of a lot more miserable and quite possibly depressed. So what do I do? How do I claim back my life? I've tried deleted the apps from my phone but I just keep going back to them. I'm checking my phone a lot during the evenings just to see if I have any messages or interest from anybody. There pretty much never is. All of the people that I spoke to in depth through OLD over the summer are gone. I really feel like this is my cue to leave it there. So I could really use some advice if possible? Link to comment
