Why can't I get over this breakup?
August 20, 2009 9:44 PM Subscribe
The break-up was the logical, sane conclusion to my doubts about my ability to stay faithful. The relationship of a few years did not have a future in a happy marriage--I needed more experience and growth, she needed growth, period. So why, over half a year after I broke it off, am I still wondering if I made the right decision? Why can't I get her out of my head?

The relationship was very good, the break-up was messy and hurtful. We've only really had total silence for the past month or two (four months after we were still talking fairly regularly, a bad idea in retrospect). I'm trying to move on, but am having a terrible time of it. I need some kind of coping strategy--I've been really busy with work, but haven't had much time for a social life or dating since I just moved to a new area. Is this normal? Can I get advice from anyone who has found themselves unable to let go of a relationship even when they knew it was not a good idea?
