7 months and still grieving
December 1, 2012 1:08 PM Subscribe
Has anyone gone through a rough period after a breakup? I was engaged to a fantastic woman, and I lost her from my high anxiety that I carry around with me. It's been about seven months, and she sent me a letter saying that she wishes I would move on because she already has.

We were supposed to be getting married next June and even though I know that there are many woman out there, I don't feel like I am ever going to be in a relationship that ever comes close to this one. Not only did I screw up the relationship, but most of our friends were friends of hers so I don't have a very wide circle of acquaintances at this point and meeting people has not traditionally been something that I do well with. This girl really blew me away right from the start when I met her. I don't think that I will ever find the unique combinations that this girl had. There is nothing I can do at this point, other than start my life over and try and learn from this experience. It's just really sad, because I am not the most social person in the world, and I was very content having her in my life and now she is gone. Any suggestions from anyone? Has anyone gone through an experience like this where you had all your eggs in one basket? I wish I could go back in time and change the things that I did because I feel very negative about any future relationships.
