I posted some information about this in my introduction a week ago or so, but I thought maybe it would get seen or receive some better input if I posted it here. My girlfriend left me nearly two weeks ago. We were in a long distance relationship and she stated that she started to grow lonely. That ended it. Other than that, our relationship was very healthy and we communicated very well. We had our arguments at times like everyone else, but we always calmly settled them and it strengthened us. I asked her to keep her heart open and try to work things out with us again later this year and she said 'maybe'. She said she still loves me and really wanted to make sure I know that. But, now she's already with someone else, part of me feels like it won't be anything to worry about and another makes me feel like I've lost her forever. She made contact with me the other day for the first time. She hoped that I was doing okay and asked about my mother. The thing that bothered me the most was how she worded it, she only said 'mom' as if it was her own and not 'your mom'. Something sort of tells me she's still emotionally bonded to my family or she just doesn't know what she did and it was subliminal. I had no choice but to ignore it. Like I've heard before "give her the gift of missing you" I've sought far and wide for advice about this or some encouraging words but all I keep doing is getting my hopes crushed, telling me it's dead and gone for good.
