    Finally, I broke up with my boyfriend. We actually parted on pretty decent terms, too. I told him that I wanted to explore the world and I didn't want to be bogged down by a relationship, and he said that he would just wait for me. After asking when I would come back, I told him that even I didn't know since Life is so unpredictable, and he understood.

    I did cry when he told me that he loved me for the final time, but now I can fully move on from him. It's like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders.

    Really glad for you!
    The fact that he'd wait for you makes him sound like a really awesome guy.
    I agree with moving on and living your own life first though. [​IMG]

    Through my painkiller haze I had to give you a hug and tell you way to go. Breakups are never easy, and I know you probably are a little sad tonight too, I always am after I break up with someone. [​IMG] This is for the best, you knew that, and I'm proud of you. Now, put on your bucket so as to avoid such nonsense in the future.



    Edited because...well, I'm on narcotics. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Remember even with the bucket it's OK to peek out every now and then to see what might be available. [​IMG] Just nothing serious. [​IMG]

    Good job EC,

    Although you might want to distance yourself for a little bit, so that he doesn't keep "waiting around." It sounds like he thinks you will eventually come back, and I am guessing you are not planning on getting back together with him.

    Keep the bucket on!!!

    Thanks, Blue. [​IMG]
