Breaking Up - It’s Hard to Do
As you crawl back into your bruised and battered life, trying to show how utterly composed you are while dying on the inside ,you look forward into the abyss of life knowing you have to start to create things to look forward to so you can remain sane.
You just want to press the forward button. Then that morning comes. You wake up, look ahead into the day and remember you have a night out planned with work and you think about what to wear, NOT about your wounded heart.

But contacting him may dent your healing and lead to another spiral of confusion as well as the risk of being lied to again. That way he knows you are not ignoring him, but it does not necessitate a reply. I would definitely ignore the small talk. Anonymous Reply Thanks a lot for your prompt reply. Well, Somehow, I still dont feel like replying to him purely for the below reasons hence I will appreciate If you can re-confirm again— 1.59. What does the dumper go through? (What is my ex feeling?)
I found out that, he was lieing to me throughout my relation with him. He was dating this friend in his group who he claimed was just a friend. He got engaged to her and I found out through some outside source. He kissed me even after being engaged I was not aware that he was engaged at that time. I am glad, it was just a kiss but still hurt me a LOT when I found out. In Fact, At that time, he told me, Marriage and Sex are tow different aspects.
I was confused with this sentence. Can you advise what does this sentence meant? Does that mean that, he would continue to sleep or sex around with different women even after getting married? Yes, I still love him as it was a long relation and I was loyal to him. This was like the biggest betrayal in my life and considering, he said, he still liked me was confusing.
At that time, blocking him from my life was an only option. I have always treated him Very special on all his Birthdays hence him wishing me on birthday was just fine. Plus, I wanted to keep my self-respect and dignity on a high level. Contacting and being in touch with him will only delay my healing as you said rightly. I still deserved a big closure and explanation. It spoiled my life. After all, it takes 2 minutes to type a Hi to an old friend?
Does a man take so long to say a small sorry to an old friend who was extremely kind to him. Plus, I use to always be the first one to apologise IF I hurt him or did any small mistake througout our relationship.
Also, he was a flirtatious types? I am fine to even forgive and forget but only after he comes across as clean and explains what happened. What do you think? Does this show that he may come back If he still has feelings or were his feelings just for fun? Kindly share your Insights. Thanking You in advance!!

Breaking Up – It’s Hard to Do
I have been on the receiving end of this my fair share of times as well. Letting go was made infinitely more difficult because I was unable to introspectively account for the discrepancy in feelings. Where was the friend, lover and companion I trusted? His behavior and I say this without knowing him seems to be chronically manipulative. Hence, bound to repeat itself in time. I get the impression that he will be back, based on the fact that he seems flighty and impulsive.
Or, at the very least, his notion of commitment is more lax. Does that make sense? I am certainly no expert!
I quiet agree with your thoughtful Insights. As you agree, my state of mind is filled with confusion and apprehension at the moment. The Fact that he was dating two women at same time proves that he was manipulative. It was still very hard for me to believe this since his relation was secretive relationship was hidden from me from a very long time.
In Fact, he never informed me that he was getting engaged to that same women. I think, he may have got married to that same women but would only lead to a divorce. Can you please advise, Is such a marriage called love? Did he love that women since he got engaged to her? However he kissed me as well and It seemed impossible for me to believe that he may get married to her?
How long does such marriage survive? Thaks once again for your feedback.
