Trouble letting go
Mar 11, 2010
Hello again;

Well it's been almost three months since my ex and I have broken up. I have tried to keep busy, both at work and with friends and family. It helps but when I have alone time I think about her. I try to remember during that time that she took one hard look at me and all that I am and said no I can do better. I've been going to the gym. I've even tried going on a couple of dates, but that makes me feel worse. I feel as if I am cheating on her. We were together for almost 5 years. We have only communicated via email for about the first month. That was also how she broke up with me, so I have never been given closure. All I was told is that we had no issues, but when we bought the ring she paniced and closed herself off to me. I was doing pretty go so I thought until about two weeks ago. Thats when her brother in law called me and we talked for hours. About hunting, and some about her. Him and I became somewhat close this last year. Anyway, he suggested I call her in a couple of months. There were lots of things said, but it all came down to that him and the whole family don't understand her and what she did. They all hope her and I can work it out. I told him it has to come from her to contact me. She is the one who wanted out and she has to want to talk to me. He said she may be to proud to admit she is wrong. I just said pride has no place in a relationship. Now is the time to be humble. Anyway I don't think any of his stuff is coming from her, but it has set me back. Now I feel almost like I am back to square one. I know I have some denial again, and false hope. Any suggestions to move forward again and keep this from happening. Or what would be the best course of action? I really don't want to lose his friendship, but I may need to cut her entire family from my life like it was a divorce. Any suggestions would be appreciated!!!
