I broke her heart to save mine

When I was 17 I was with a girl I absolutely loved. Soon she became pregnant and it put everything into perspective. We lost the baby and stayed together for 2 years. She was 2 years younger then I was and she had decided to move 140 miles away to go to college. I stayed close by after high school to stay with her. She was my sun, my moon and my stars.

A few weeks after she had graduated I abruptly broke up with her. I know that it hurt her more then it hurt me, but I had to. The thought of getting a late night phone call from her telling me that she made a "drunken mistake" while in college crushed me. I wanted her to have no regrets and to be free. I quickly slept with several girls to be numb and move on with my life.

That was over 12 years ago and I still think of her all the time. We both have moved on with our lives but there will always be the "what if" factor.

    ask her to forgive you and tell her this.

  • I can relate to your feelings man. I have gone through the same feelings, and still deal with those what if feelings for a couple girls. Its painful until you forget about it for most of the day. But it always comes back at some point. ATM I am in a state of heartbreak and cannot offer any good advice, just sympathy. You're not alone.
