donkeys Posted January 23, 2018 Share Posted January 23, 2018 It's been close to a year since my ex left me. For about 3 months after that I tried my hardest to win her back, I loved her so much and would have done anything if it meant we could be together again. Eventually through persuasion from my friends and family I cut contact with her, though she still continued to attempt to contact me for several months afterwards, sometimes guilt tripping me, asking why I didn't love her or care about her anymore. Eventually I stopped responding entirely, and she stopped trying to contact me. It's been about 6 months since then. I don't know where she is, how she's doing, or anything. I haven't attempted to contact her, haven't checked her social media, nothing. I refuse to lie to myself however. Though my love for her has faded somewhat, it's still there. If she contacted me tomorrow and asked if we could be together again, I would very likely say yes without a second thought. Though I know this is just a fantasy, it's never going to happen. And I've accepted that. Since our breakup I've gone on a few dates and slept with one woman, though I felt nothing for any of them. My ex remained in my mind the entire time, and still does. Because of that I've kind of just lost interest in romance entirely for the time being. As I close in on the one year mark I'm growing discouraged, I feel like being able to feel love for another again is going to take a very long time. What about you? How long did it take for you to feel love for another again after your ex? Link to comment
